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 Deerfield Beach bankruptcy attorneys
Taketra B.
Attorney Wesley Terry is rude and a very big liar. He took $600.00 of mine and would not return it after I decided to get another attorney to represent me in my bankruptcy, no work was completed until after he realized that I had another attorney. He is lazy and takes his time with your case once any payments are made, he had not done anything on my case for 3 weeks after he got the $600.00, which was not the agreement. I have had to file a complainant with the Florida Bar. Please beware, the other complainant about him is true, don't let him tell you that the person was not telling the truth, as I am sure this is what he is going to say about me. Please just know I had to pay another attorney to do what I had already started to pay him to carryout.
