Most people who are seriously contemplating bankruptcy hire an attorney to represent them throughout the process. I believe that these people never even consider not hiring an attorney and don't seriously entertain the thought of navigating the system on their own.
It is widely reported that persons who hire an attorney to represent them throughout their bankruptcy fare better overall by experiencing a more streamlined process, receiving a more thorough bankruptcy discharge and completing the process in an expeditious manner.
If you do hire an attorney to represent you in bankruptcy, you will have the benefit of a licensed legal professional helping you along the way. Obviously, if you decide to go it alone you will need to work through the process without this benefit and the chances of you making a mistake and jeopardizing your case and your discharge rise exponentially.
If you are on the fence about hiring an attorney to help you file bankruptcy in Florida, take a moment and consider the points below.
The following is a short list of what I believe are 4 of the most important benefits which accompany hiring a bankruptcy attorney to handle your bankruptcy:
- You will have an experienced, licensed professional handling your case who knows the legal system and who knows more than just what the bankruptcy rules and code say.
- The chances of you inadvertently making an irreversible mistake fall dramatically. There are some things that even the best attorney cannot “fix” or “undo” once they have been done.
- You will have the benefit of legal counsel during your 341 meeting and any other parts of the process where you must give sworn testimony or present directly to the bankruptcy court.
- You will have someone who can answer the questions you have throughout the process just a phone call or email away.
While there are many other benefits of hiring an attorney to help you with your bankruptcy case, these are just my top 4.
