My husband and I consulted with Dan about some financial problems we were having. It was a very embarrassing time for us. Dan treated us with dignity, and gave us good advice. We hired him to represent us as we went through a foreclosure and bankruptcy. Dan was always just a phone call or an email away, and he answered all of our questions in a timely manner. After everything was finalized, there was a creditor who kept harassing us with phone calls. Dan put an end to that quickly for us. We highly recommend Dan Gindes’s services. He knows the laws, and he’s professional, while being compassionate. Sincerely, Nancy and Mike GodinSee more

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.

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. 

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.”
