I’m filing for bankruptcy in Scottsdale—how do I choose the right bankruptcy attorney?

When you are looking for an attorney to represent you in your Arizona bankruptcy case, you are not simply looking for a lawyer with a catchy television advertisement or billboard—you are choosing someone that will help pave the way to your financial future.


Just like no bankruptcy case is exactly the same, every attorney and firm has something different to offer. When you are searching for a firm, there are a few very important things to consider in order to ensure that you choose the Arizona bankruptcy attorney that is right for you.


Many larger firms may process several bankruptcy cases simultaneously, but in order to accomplish that they may pass off much of the paperwork and minor details to paralegals or assistants. If your case is anything besides a cookie cutter bankruptcy, it may be best to demand that your case is handled by attorneys. By working with a smaller firm, you can be in regular contact with the attorney handling your case, and be sure that you and your bankruptcy case are receiving the attention you deserve.


When shopping around for a lawyer, you should value transparency and honesty. A good attorney will be frank with you when discussing your case, including your financial outlook and property that you may have to part with over the course of your case. Any lawyer can sell someone on a story that seems too good to be true; a good lawyer will present you with the facts and help guide you through the process from start to finish.
