Virtually anyone—even the fiscally responsible—can experience financial troubles in a relatively short amount of time. Needing to file for bankruptcy is nothing to be ashamed of; bankruptcy is a perfectly legal means of discharging insurmountable debts. To make sure the bankruptcy process goes as smoothly as possible, consider having a bankruptcy attorney help you file the paperwork. Here are a few qualities you should look for when researching bankruptcy attorneys in Aurora:
Experience is important in any field—including bankruptcy law. To help ensure that you don’t run into any unexpected problems as you file for bankruptcy, you should hire a bankruptcy lawyer who has helped hundreds or even thousands of people file bankruptcy over a long, successful career. Cutler & Associates, Ltd. has been serving Chicago-area residents since 1990, and our legal team has more than 30 years of combined experience.
It’s also a good idea to see how your bankruptcy attorney is perceived within the community. Consider looking at past client testimonials and check each attorney’s standing with the Illinois State Bar Association. Cutler & Associates has served numerous happy clients, is in excellent standing with the state bar, and currently has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau.
Air of Professionalism
You should always meet with a candidate before making your mind up. During your legal consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to explain your financial situation and explore possible alternatives to bankruptcy. This consultation is also a good time to get to know a lawyer and determine whether he or she is the kind of person you can trust with your financial wellbeing. A good bankruptcy attorney should be attentive, respectful, and always a phone call away.
