Nobody should go through chapter 7 bankruptcy alone, but many people choose to for a variety of reasons. Often, they believe that a bankruptcy attorney can’t help them out of their situation. Others are too prideful to seek help from anybody, let alone a bankruptcy lawyer. Unfortunately for them, and fortunately for you, bankruptcy attorneys can help you in a number of ways.

  • They Are Experts
    The odds are good that you’ve never gone through a chapter 7 bankruptcy before. You can bet that a bankruptcy lawyer has, many times over. Bankruptcy is a complex area of the law, so hiring an expert in that field can be tremendously helpful.
  • Protection
    Bankruptcy lawyers can put a stop to creditor harassment and collection calls. They also protect your interests in court sessions and creditor meetings during a chapter 7 or chapter 13 bankruptcy proceeding. By acting as your representation, they provide a line of defense against the negatives of the process.
  • Protection, Part 2
    Hiring a bankruptcy attorney can also protect you against mistakes. By hiring a representative, you become largely insulated against making mistakes. Mistakes during the bankruptcy process can be immensely costly, and protecting yourself against them is paramount.
  • Planning
    One of the things that often surprises people after consulting with a bankruptcy attorney is that filing for bankruptcy is actually a bad idea in their case. Consulting with an attorney on the best course of action for your particular case may save you from making a catastrophic financial mistake.

These are just four of the many advantages of hiring a bankruptcy attorney.  Cutler & Associates has been representing the Chicago community in their bankruptcy proceedings for 20 years. We specialize in bankruptcy and foreclosure solutions, and your initial consultation is always free!
