5 Tips For Finding And Hiring The Right Bakersfield Bankruptcy Lawyer
1. You Get What You Pay For
Be careful of do-it-yourself programs, self help guides, and heavily discounted “specials”. These “deals” often come with lack of communication, confusion, and more work for you.
The fact is, the GOOD bankruptcy attorneys don't have to discount their fees dramatically to get your business. And they can get things done right the first time.
A professional bakersfield bankruptcy lawyer typically runs in the $1,500 to $2,500 range. The more experience and the better reputation a Bakersfield bankruptcy lawyer has, the more he can charge.
The more you pay, the more expertise you get.
When you call, you'll find that our fees are very reasonable.
TWO RED FLAGS:
1. A lawyer that throws a price at you without knowing the whole story.
2. A price that is dramatically lower than everyone else.
2. Make Sure She Is Familiar With The Code Changes of 2005
The U.S. Government made some important changes to the bankruptcy code in 2005.
Hard to believe but a few Bakersfield bankruptcy lawyers have not paid much attention to the new code which can result in delays down the road.
Not to fear though, the Bakersfield bankruptcy lawyer we recommend to you knows the new code inside and out.
No worries there.
I make darn sure they "know their stuff" before I ever recommend them to you.
Near the end of your first consultation you might ask, “So, how does the 2005 code changes affect my situation?”
If she spits and stutters and stumbles for a good answer, you may want to look elsewhere.
If you'd like to talk to a
Bakersfield bankruptcy attorney that has already been tested and approved, just pick up the phone and call us right away to get your questions answered.
3. Make Sure The Attorney Is Focused On Bankruptcies
Most firms handle different kinds of legal situations. So, in addition to working on a Bakersfield bankruptcy they might also work on a foreclosure, divorce, real estate, etc.
That, in and of itself, is not necessarily a problem. Especially if it's a big firm with many attorneys working there.
Just be aware of how many bankruptcies a particular lawyer does...
Is it one of her main focuses or is it just something she's willing to do when business is slow.
Try to find a firm or an individual lawyer that specializes in just 3 or 4 different areas.
Their business cards and/or advertisements will likely list “bankruptcy” first or second on their list of services offered.
We specialize in California bankruptcies and know how to pull off a bankruptcy without a hitch.
4. Beware of “bankruptcy mills”
I mentioned this earlier...you get what you pay for...Some lawyers across the country have systems set up to run you through a step-by-step mill.
A good bankruptcy lawyer can handle maybe 30 to 40 bankruptcies in any given month. Any more than that and you may be looking at a mill.
So just ask,
“How many bankruptcies do you handle each month?”
The answer might give you the information you need.
A mill might appear to be a respectable law firm with the fancy office and high dollar suits, but you'll probably recognize a mill when you see one...
And a little hand-holding to get you through the intricacies of the Bakersfield bankruptcy court is nice :-)
On the other hand, don't expect tons of affection even from the most capable Bakersfield bankruptcy lawyers. They probably have a lot of clients and want to get you taken care of so they can move on to the next client.
That's OK. They're not being disrespectful, they just have a lot to do.
So, expect good service but don't
disrespect their time.
5. Trust Your Instincts
The bankruptcy attorney you hire should be knowledgeable and respectful.
But he should also be likable.
Know what I mean?
I guess it's not the MOST important thing but if you “feel” good about your meetings with your bankruptcy lawyer and you are reasonably comfortable around him or her, that's a good bonus.
These 5 tips may sound like a lot of work...calling multiple Bakersfield bankruptcy lawyers, asking the right questions, and trying to decide which one to use.
And you're right, it IS a lot of work.
But remember, at Easier Bakersfield Bankruptcy, we've already passed all those tests.
