How A Good Bankruptcy Lawyer Can Help You

Bankruptcy laws are extremely complicated and nearly impossible for the average person to

understand. With the new bankruptcy laws that have been recently put into action, the laws

have become even more complicated. This is why it is important to hire a bankruptcy lawyer if

you are considering filing bankruptcy. He or she can help you choose the right chapter of

bankruptcy for you.

A Toronto bankruptcy lawyer specializes in the laws as they pertain to filing bankruptcy.

However, not every lawyer is versed in the laws of your particular state. That is why it is very

important to go with a local lawyer who is familiar with the bankruptcy laws of your state. The

laws can be considerably different from one state to another. So make sure that the lawyer you

choose not only has experience working in your state, but is licensed to work with cases in your

state as well.

When choosing a bankruptcy lawyer it is important that you feel comfortable working with him

or her. Filing bankruptcy is a very emotional and life changing experience. Therefore, you will

want a lawyer that understands what you are going through. An experienced bankruptcy lawyer

will know exactly how to handle any of your concerns or fears. One of the best ways to get a

feel for your lawyer is to interview him or her. Be sure to ask plenty of questions so that you

have a complete understanding where he or she stands on certain matters. Also, be sure to ask

what their success rate is and if he or she has handled cases similar to yours before.

When filing bankruptcy, your budget will be a key element. Therefore, you will want to make

sure you have a full understanding of any and all fees your lawyer will be charging. Generally

speaking, a bankruptcy lawyer charges a sizable fee for his or her services. You will be

responsible for paying for the actual bankruptcy, which varies depending on what type you file

for. Chapter 7 bankruptcy runs around $300. Then, your lawyer will charge approximately

$1000 to $2000. If the fee is too high, you will want to consider another lawyer. But keep in

mind that legal services are going to cost something, and it may be to your advantage to pay a

bit more for an excellent lawyer, rather than paying much less for a bankruptcy lawyer with far

less experience.

Picking a reputable bankruptcy lawyer is crucial to the outcome of your case. Therefore, you do

not want to choose a lawyer at random. Picking a lawyer blindly out of the phone book could

have a negative impact on the overall outcome. When choosing a lawyer, ask family and friends

for recommendations. Although they may not have personally filed bankruptcy, they may have

another friend who can recommend someone. So be sure to ask around. If you cannot find a

personal recommendation, you can check with the Better Business Bureau to see if they have

had any negative feedback on a lawyer you are considering.

Do not pick out a bankruptcy lawyer at the last minute. Be sure to do some advance planning

and research. Otherwise, if you pick a lawyer at the last minute you could end up with a lawyer

who is not experienced in the area you need or whom you do not feel comfortable working


No one likes to admit that they need help. However, when filing bankruptcy it is essential that

you work with a lawyer who specializes in the field of bankruptcy. He or she can help make the

overall process a lot smoother and easier. With the laws that are in place today, it is vital that

you have an experienced lawyer who has a full understanding of the laws and can help you

through the bankruptcy process.
