Many of our clients say that they think about contacting us for weeks, months or even years before finally picking up the phone or filling out our contact form online. That's because meeting with a bankruptcy lawyer can feel very intimidating. However, it doesn't have to be.
Here are a few things that you should know about meeting with a bankruptcy lawyer for the first time, which will probably put your mind at ease.
1. You don't have to be ready to decide if bankruptcy is right for you.
When you call a bankruptcy lawyer, you don't have to have your mind made up that you are going to file. In fact, you should wait until you talk to a lawyer about your options before you make a decision.
The lawyer you speak with can give you more information about what the legal process is like, and then he or she can give you advice about if it makes sense for your situation.
