Basic Things a Bankruptcy Lawyer Can Do

By Christopher Lee February 14, 2013 | Posted in

If you’re filing for bankruptcy, and have already dealt with the credit counselor or other form of financial counseling, you may be in the market for a bankruptcy lawyer. It’s important to understand what a lawyer of this type can do for you. This post will go over some basic things you can expect every bankruptcy lawyer you consult with to be able to provide for you and your filing.

What to Expect

The bankruptcy process, and filing for bankruptcy, is a complex thing to deal with. A lawyer will help guide you through the complex process and try to offer you a relatively easy path to the filing procedure. As it is a complex process, when you are looking for a bankruptcy lawyer make sure you look for one who focuses in bankruptcy as a part of their practice, as opposed to someone to whom it is simply a sidebar. Lawyers already practicing these type of cases will have a level of expertise many other lawyers will be unfamiliar with.

A Dallas bankruptcy attorney can assist in preparing your petition as well as helping to file it with the courts. An attorney will also communicate with your trustees, help you appear in your meeting with creditors, and will help you select and prepare any additional documentation you need for your bankruptcy filing and throughout your case.

Having someone who already understands what you need will help you better resolve your bankruptcy case. With a potentially daunting pile of paperwork to deal with, it is definitely a viable piece of advice to seek an attorney to help you.

Everybody I have encountered and meet with at Lee Law Firm has been positive and encouraging. And that is exactly what I needed because nobody looks forward to going through bankruptcy. The staff was honest about my situation and put my mind at ease about the process, and for the first time in months I was able to relax and focus…

on getting out of my financial situation with hope of starting over. I would recommend Lee Law firm of friends and family because I feel like they have my best interest at heart.
