Choosing a Bankruptcy Lawyer
- Ask your family lawyer for the names of trusted bankruptcy lawyers. This is probably your best referral choice.
- Get recommendations from reliable family members, friends and colleagues. These people can be a valuable source of the name of an excellent bankruptcy attorney.
- If you have an employer-sponsored legal plan, this could be an invaluable source for a bankruptcy attorney referral.
- Call your state, county or municipal bar association for the names of several attorneys in your area who have the experience needed for your bankruptcy case. However, it is crucial that you check all credentials as these associations do not necessarily screen lawyers for competency.
