Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you find a bankruptcy attorney?

You’ll need to conduct a little bit of research to find the best bankruptcy lawyer for your situation. Start by pulling up a list of attorneys near you. Identify a few lawyers who have high ratings, mostly positive customer reviews and the required credentials in your state.

Once you have a list of three to five potential attorneys you can hire, figure out how much they charge. Ask for a free cost estimate (what are their hourly rates?) and ask them to explain their fee schedule. Choose an attorney with a solid track record and reputation, fair pricing and the right credentials.

How do lawyers get paid if they lose a case?

Lawyers typically charge for their time (typically a hourly rate) regardless of whether they win a case. Sometimes, the losing party is ordered to pay the other party’s lawyer fees on top of their own. Some lawyers also work on contingency, meaning they will take a percentage of the awarded amount only if they successfully win the case. 

Before hiring a lawyer, make sure you understand their fee structure.

How do you file bankruptcy without an attorney?

It’s possible to file bankruptcy without a lawyer’s help (which is called “filing pro se”) — but consider the pros and cons before you do. The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts strongly recommends you get advice from an attorney because of the “long-term financial and legal outcomes.”

What does a bankruptcy attorney do?

A bankruptcy attorney helps individuals and corporations navigate the legal and court process of going through bankruptcy. They’ll explain the process to you, help you fill out forms, advise you on which chapter you should file under and more. 

Reviews for Phoenix debt attorneys
Karen M.
One of the most difficult choices in our life has been the choice to file bankruptcy. We had insurmountable medical bills and credit card debt due to job loss and the medical bills. We began investigating bankruptcy attorneys for several months and did not feel comfortable with any of them due to high-pressure tactics and elevated fees. It was a scary trek into uncharted waters. When you are struggling financially, the last thing you need is to find a way to come up with exorbitant legal fees, so when we found Anthony Clark, we were surprised and relieved that he was not a high-pressure lawyer, nor did he charge as much as other attorneys in the area. Anthony spoke with us over the course of several months without charging us a cent until we were ready to file Chapter 7. We are still in the middle of our case and our debt has not been discharged yet, but Anthony has been right there with us, every step of the way. He responds quickly to emails, he answers his own phone and is not in any hurry to end the conversation with you until you understand all of the ramifications of your case. He never gets irritated when my husband or I ask him questions because he wants to make sure we understand every aspect of the process. Anthony keeps his promises and when he tells you that he will do something, he will--for example, our mortgage company has been challenging to work with, but Anthony has persevered without complaint. My husband and I are very happy we chose Anthony to represent us for our Chapter 7 bankruptcy. It certainly was not something we wanted to do, but there was no other option for us. Thanks, Anthony!
