When interviewing a potential bankruptcy law firm, here are some things to keep in mind. Ask for referrals. Referrals are always good because you will often uncover a bankruptcy lawyer who has a reputation for being qualified and easy to work with, as well as those bankruptcy lawyers to avoid. Just like any other professional providing a service, this potential lawyer will be hired to represent your best interest. Make sure that they are accessible and easy to work with. Ask the potential lawyer how long they have been practicing bankruptcy law. Writing down your questions before your first meeting will be helpful and eliminate wasted time during the meeting. Feel free to ask the potential lawyer whether they feel that your case involves complicated matters. The outcome of your case might affect the fees that are incurred. Ask to meet the lawyer's staff. These are the people that you will be dealing with on a more one-to-one basis.
