An Initial Consultation: What You Need To Know
May 9th, 2016
When going to meet with a bankruptcy attorney (or any attorney, for that matter), you should consider it a form of a job interview. You are interviewing the attorney to determine if they are qualified to handle your legal matter. Make sure that this is the person that you want to entrust making decisions that can seriously impact your financial future. You can't know what you don't know, which is why you are hiring an attorney in the first place. You want to make sure that the attorney you choose is able to answer the questions you have confidently and competently. Remember that not all attorneys are the same. Just because someone has a law license does not mean that they should handle any legal issue that is presented to them. The best law firm to handle your problems should be a firm that focuses its energy on excelling in a particular area of law. The Law Firm of Droder & Miller has committed itself to being a leader in the bankruptcy field.
Of course, cost is always an issue when hiring an attorney. The best attorney for your legal issue may come at a premium. Just as with anything else, though, you get what you pay for. If you buy something just because it is inexpensive, there is a much higher likelihood that you will be paying for repairs because it is cheaply made (or replacing it altogether).
An attorney is no different. You may not need a Cadillac attorney because your legal issue seems very simple and can be handled by a basic attorney. However, there is a peace of mind that comes with hiring someone that you know you can trust for any issues that may arise in your case. A case may start out simple and then may take a dramatic turn toward complicated. You don't want to have to replace the inexpensive attorney in the middle of a representation because they aren't prepared to handle it. More often than not, this will cost you more than just hiring the quality attorney to begin with.
