Filing bankruptcy can sometimes feel like an intimidating and overwhelming process when you try to go it alone. While it’s not impossible to file bankruptcy without the help of a lawyer, it is certainly much more difficult and stressful. But, how do you know which lawyer to turn to? In today’s blog here at Sanchez Garrison & Associates, LLP in Baltimore, we share some things you should look for when you are recruiting the services of a bankruptcy attorney. 

 

If you are in the Baltimore area and need some guidance working through your bankruptcy situation, contact us at Sanchez Garrison & Associates, LLP. We have more than 50 years of experience and have navigated the tricky terrain of bankruptcy countless times. 

 

Experience

When you want help from a bankruptcy attorney, quality experience is one of the first things that you should look for. While it is possible for an attorney straight out of law school to do a great job, do you really want to risk it? When you work with a bankruptcy attorney with a proven track record and relevant experience, you improve your chances of having a positive experience and outcome. 

 

Some factors that you should keep an eye out for when looking for a bankruptcy attorney are: 

 

  • Education (where they studied law, what degree they achieved, etc.)
  • Previous relevant work history
  • Previous cases
  • Years the firm has been in business
  • Reviews from past clients

 

If a bankruptcy law firm does not have this information available on their website, don’t be afraid to reach out. Here at Sanchez Garrison & Associates, LLP in Baltimore, we have more than 50 years of experience that we will put to work for you. Contact us today to learn more about us and to get guidance through the bankruptcy process!

Empathy

While experience and knowledge are valuable, they aren’t everything. You want a bankruptcy lawyer that cares about you as an individual. Nobody wants to be treated like case 45233. You deserve to feel like the people helping you are invested in your well being and want to see you succeed. Your lawyer doesn’t have to be your best friend, but you should get the impression that they are treating you as an individual rather than just another client. 

 

The best way to find out if your bankruptcy attorney is going to be understanding and help you on an individual basis is by setting up a meeting with them. When you meet people face to face, you can get a much better idea of who someone is and what they are about. 

 

Here at Sanchez Garrison & Associates, LLP in Baltimore, we care about your wellbeing and treat each client with the respect they deserve. Contact us today to set up your meeting and for guidance through the bankruptcy process.

Free Consultations

It may seem like a little thing, but free consultations should be something that you keep your eye out for when you are searching for a bankruptcy lawyer. Free consultations can help you see the value in their services, can present you with a valuable plan of action for getting you out of debt, and can give you the opportunity to meet with the lawyers to see if they will be a good fit.
