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.

Working with Brian was the best decision I made when looking for an attorney to represent me for my bankruptcy. He actually listened to my situation, was always calm and reassured me that everything was ok, was able to help me make the best decision for my case. I figured I should still get a second consultation, just to see what options are available to me. Let me tell you, I didn't expect to come out of there feeling so dirty, ashamed, defensive, nervous, and judged for asking questions. I practically ran out of that meeting and hired Brian a few minutes later. If you are looking for someone who genuinely cares about you, is knowledgeable in law, will work directly with your case (not leave it to a paralegal to do it all) and actually answers your emails/texts, then Brian is the person to hire. You've got someone in your corner during this difficult time. Thank you for everything Brian!
