Find a Old Westbury Business Bankruptcy Attorney in your area

Business Bankruptcy

A Old Westbury Business Bankruptcy can be a great option if your business is unable to meet its financial obligations and is looking to either restructure debt obligations or liquidate assets. Depending on your company’s current financial position, one or both strategies may be an option.

Business Bankruptcy Options

Provided the bankruptcy is not involuntary, your Business Bankruptcy Attorney may recommend either a Chapter 11 (“reorganization”), or chapter 7 (“liquidation”) bankruptcy to deal with your company’s financial issues.

A Chapter 11 allows a business to reorganize debts and pay off creditor’s over a period of time up to five years. A Chapter 7 liquidation forces the company to literally liquidate all assets, pay off creditors, and ultimately, stop operating. This is typically the least desirable option that your Business Bankruptcy Attorney will try to help you avoid.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

How to Prepare for Your Initial Consultation

Prepare for your consultation by writing down notes of your understanding of the case, jot down questions and concerns for the attorney, and gather your documents. Remember that you are trying to get a sense of whether the attorney has your trust and can help you address your legal issues. Questions should include how the attorney intends to resolve your issue, how many years he/she has been practicing law and specifically practicing in your area, as well as how many cases similar to yours the attorney has handled. It can also be helpful to broach the subject of fees so that you understand the likely cost and structure of your representation by a specific attorney and/or legal team.

Points to Consider Before Hiring a Lawyer

Experience. Regardless of the type of legal matter you need help with, an experienced attorney will usually be able to get you better results.

Competence. Determine an attorney’s expertise by asking about their track record for the issue you need help with resolving.

Fit. There are plenty of good attorneys out there; make sure you find one you are comfortable working with.
