What Are Your Strengths As A Bankruptcy Attorney?
Our firm prides itself on the individual attention that we provide to each and every client on each and every case. I personally will sit down with you from the initial consultation and answer all of your questions. We will go over your credit report together; we even provide a copy of your credit report and credit counseling classes, both of which are included as part of our fees; we don’t charge you extra for those.
In addition, I will personally sit down with you and go over all of your debts, as well as your assets, and make sure that they are properly exempted. I will go over all of your income, including your paycheck stubs, and your expenses, and together we’ll create a budget to get you back on track.
I will not only file your case, but I will also do everything myself. Our firm is available by phone 24/7, with a live person always able to answer. If we are unavailable, they will either take a message or forward your call to my cell phone if it’s an emergency.
I personally go to court with you, so you won’t be by yourself at any time. Regardless of how long you’ve been a client or even a former client, you can always call and ask me for advice or help. We pride ourselves on that personal touch.

Why Attorney Representation vs Self Representation
Would you try to do your own brain surgery? The answer to that is clearly no! When it comes to something important, you want an expert who knows what they’re doing.
While bankruptcy is obviously not as life-threatening as brain surgery, it is one of the most technical areas of law, and handling it properly can have a major impact when it comes to your financial future and protecting your assets. You want someone on your side who knows the law, knows the judges and knows the trustees, and who can shepherd you through the process, in order to protect your assets and dispose of your liabilities properly.
Creditors are after the money, and they tend to take advantage of people who are filing the bankruptcy, especially when they file pro se, or on their own. They know that such people don’t have the legal knowledge to handle things competently, and they don’t have someone in their corner who does. And they will have skilled attorneys on their side, pleading their case.
It’s important to hire a bankruptcy attorney, because you will be at a disadvantage compared to your creditors, and because a single mistake can cost you dearly. If you don’t list something in your bankruptcy properly, or you fail to exempt it properly, you could lose that asset.
Likewise, if the creditors want to challenge your ability to obtain a discharge and they see that you’re by yourself, they will be far more likely to file that because they know that they’ll be able to get a default judgment on somebody who, frankly, doesn’t know how to respond. If they see know the debtor is represented by a lawyer, they’re less likely to do something like that.
