									Choosing a Bankruptcy Lawyer
When you try to choose a bankruptcy lawyer, as with anything you will want to
research your options. Just picking up a phone book and dialing a number may
not be your best option. You may ask your personal lawyer to suggest someone
qualified in bankruptcy law. You may look on the Internet for a few phone
numbers and then interview the lawyers. The American Bar Association can also
help you find a lawyer. It is important to screen your choices in lawyers ask about
the cases he or she has dealt with in the past without asking them to reveal any
information about the people involved. Ask the person about your situation and
what they may recommend.

You can always check with a few people before making the ultimate decision.
Referrals are often the best way to find a great lawyer. You have a lot at stake
with a bankruptcy because you do not want the case dismissed based on the
wrong information. A lawyer can help you get the documentation you will need to
appear in court. He or she will apprise you of the questions a judge may ask you
and explain other statements that he or she may make regarding your case.

Bankruptcy takes time. You may find a year later after starting proceedings you
are just going to court and in another six months or less you will have the court’s
ruling. During this time, you can ask your lawyer about any information that may
come up. If you are trying to work with a few creditors, a lawyer can help you if
the collection agencies are harassing you by fielding calls.
