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 Springfield bankruptcy attorneys
Janice S.
When I first started looking for an attorney I needed to find one who was experienced, could meet my needs, and would not charge me way more than I could afford, especially in light of COVID impacting my income significantly. I messaged a few and Martin was quick to respond and give me all the information about filing, what to expect, a timeline, and all the final costs with nothing hidden. He was very professional and easy to work with at all times. He kept me updated on everything and if something was needed he would let me know and advise me how to go about obtaining anything that might be missed or could be added and help alleviate any additional financial burden. Even after the case, he has touched base to follow up and to let me know the status and that now everything is 100% discharged. He is very good at his job and his costs are much lower than many other attorneys. I would recommend him to anyone seeking a good attorney to work with for bankruptcy.
