The idea of filing for bankruptcy is a scary one for most people. So, when you have made the decision to file for bankruptcy protection, you want to be certain you find the right firm to help you. Not all bankruptcy lawyers and law firms are the same, and having an experienced bankruptcy lawyer is a huge benefit.
Attorneys with a larger number of bankruptcy filings are usually more familiar with the different types of bankruptcy, and the various issues that can arise in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. They are more familiar with the bankruptcy trustees and the procedures used in the local US Bankruptcy Court. More experienced attorneys can answer your bankruptcy questions, go over your bankruptcy alternatives, and ensure you receive the bankruptcy help you are requesting. Having a less experienced law firm file your bankruptcy could lead to loss of property in a Chapter 7, or a dismissal of your Chapter 13.
