BRIDGING YOU TO A BRIGHTER FUTURE

Understanding Your Relationship with Your Bankruptcy Attorney

Your bankruptcy attorney is your number one advocate during the bankruptcy process. He or she ensures you are treated fairly and that you complete all of the tasks necessary for your bankruptcy to run smoothly. The key to having a successful bankruptcy that truly puts you back on the path to financial freedom is to choose an attorney who is an expert in bankruptcy law and who has a desire to support you during this challenging time.

Trust in Bankruptcy

Your relationship with your bankruptcy attorney is built on trust. He or she must trust you to provide honest and complete information, and you must trust your attorney to do right by you and keep the lines of communication open. When you are choosing a bankruptcy attorney, it’s important to go with someone whom you feel you can build trust.

Another reason trust is important in the bankruptcy attorney and client relationship is because you must disclose so much personal information during the process. In addition to the obvious financial information you are required to share with your bankruptcy attorney, you might also need to fill him or her in on personal details of your life. Issues with spouses, children, and other family members often play a role in bankruptcy. Your attorney needs to put you at ease and reduce the sense that your privacy is being invaded by a stranger as you share information about your personal and financial situation.

Choosing the Right Attorney for You

There are plenty of bankruptcy attorneys capable of helping you file for bankruptcy. In many cases, filing will go smoothly and you will overcome your financial struggles. However, in order for you to say you had a truly life-changing experience that improved your financial outlook, you must choose an attorney with whom you are comfortable. Bankruptcy makes you vulnerable, but the best attorneys will put you at ease and give you the confidence needed to make bankruptcy work for you.

Meeting with more than one bankruptcy attorney before making a commitment can help you make the best choice for you. It is important to be clear about your expectations in a bankruptcy attorney and to understand what a particular attorney is willing to do throughout the process. The last thing you want during this stressful time is to be let down by your primary advocate.

Coping with the Emotions of Bankruptcy

There’s no denying it – bankruptcy is as much a financial process as it is an emotional one. Many people are forced into bankruptcy due to very personal circumstances. Medical issues, divorce, and family matters can all play a role. The best bankruptcy attorneys consider the emotional side of bankruptcy and are able to empathize with each client’s own unique circumstances.
