Finding a Bankruptcy Lawyer in Queens
Seems like an odd title, no? Why just blog about finding a Bankruptcy Lawyer in Queens. Because we’ve received numerous phone calls in the past few months from clients in Queens looking to file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. So, what do you look for? Well, no matter what I say this will sound like a sales pitch on our end, and it shouldn’t be regarded as such. We’re confident about what we do and how we do it, but your decision should be a careful one.
Heres a small story and maybe you can relate. I had a client in my office a few days back. Around 60 years old or so. Lost a fortune when the market crashed in 2008. Regular person like me and you. And you could tell that this was an incredibly emotional decision even walking into my office to discuss the filing. Lets face it, no one wants to say, at least initially, that they’re filing for Bankruptcy. I get it. So should the lawyer you choose. This isn’t coming in to claim some prize you won. It’s a heartfealt decision. Many people have sleepless night prior to going to see a Bankruptcy lawyer. Others are worried beyond belief and try to do everything they can do to solve the financial problem without filing (even when they may know in the back of their minds that Bankruptcy is likely the cheaper and better option.) Your lawyer should be cognizant of all of this and LISTEN. It’s so crucial and sometimes so overlooked. You’re not just another client. You have a story to tell. A particular set of circumstances which make the predicament you’re in….yours and yours alone. Look, there are a ton of Bankruptcy attorneys that do a great job out there. But I think it’s vital, and I’ve said this many times before, that you choose someone you feel absolutely comfortable with. As this is likely to be one of the biggest financial decisions of your life. Choose someone who understands what you’re going through and can empathize with your situation, but can also show you that there is a way out of this mess.
We don’t take any client that walks in the door. I know that certain clients may or may not want to do this and may or may not cooperate throughout the process. And just like me, you shouldn’t just pick the first attorney you find. Make sure that when you choose someone you’ve thoroughly thought it through. Again, there are so many people in Queens that want financial relief from their sleepless nights, stress, and the constant calls of creditors (which are insane). The lawyer needs to understand that. It will make the relationship, in my opinion, ten times better.
