Are You Considering Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Chapter 13 bankruptcy is a reorganization of your debts. This form of bankruptcy allows you to retain your property and pay back all or part of your debts over three to five years using your income if you meet certain eligibility requirements, so Chapter 13 is not for everyone.

Why a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Lawyer Is Important

Any form of bankruptcy is complex, and a Keaau Chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyer can evaluate your financial circumstances and ability to repay your debts to determine if you are eligible. A lawyer can help you prepare the necessary legal documents and represent you at bankruptcy proceedings.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

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.

Does firm size matter?

For most consumer legal issues, the size of the practice is much less important than the experience, competence, and reputation of the attorney(s) handling your case. Among the most important factors when choosing an attorney are your comfort level with the attorney or practice and the attorney’s track record in bringing about quick, successful resolutions to cases similar to yours.
