Filing for bankruptcy is a serious decision, which is why every individual or business owner contemplating doing so should have an experienced bankruptcy attorney on their side. From managing the intricacies of the filing process to ensuring that trustees have all necessary information, selecting the right attorney can have a significant outcome on your case.
Bankruptcy Is Complex
Bankruptcy is a very complex area of the law. Choosing a lawyer who is not experienced in handling bankruptcy cases means putting your future at risk. Would you rather have a seasoned surgeon performing your surgery or someone who is picking up a scalpel for the first time? The same examination of experience should be taken into account when searching for the right attorney. Paperwork, judgment calls and serious decisions should be handled by someone who Is well-versed in the intricacies of bankruptcy.
Knowledge of the Bigger Picture
In most financial matters, the long-term picture is just as important as the short-term picture. Some attorneys will focus on getting the quickest solution, but that can end up costing you more in the end. An experienced bankruptcy attorney knows how to negotiate on your behalf for a resolution that benefits you today and tomorrow. You get what you pay for, and a less-experienced attorney could make missteps that cost you a great deal.
Experience Leads to Knowledge of What Each Trustee Wants
Trustees work to determine whether or not the person filing for bankruptcy has followed the requirements for filing, to locate assets with values above the liens and exemptions claimed and liquidate them, to identify any litigation that could be pursued for the benefit of the bankruptcy estate and to close the case in a timely fashion. Bankruptcy trustees value disclosure and accuracy, and an experienced bankruptcy attorney knows how to deliver both of those.
