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.”

Reviews for Plano bankruptcy attorneys
Chris A.
Derek has been awesome! I had a fairly complicated bankruptcy and was told by other Bankruptcy attorney's that I couldn't even file. Derek took my case and was able to clearly explain to me how the process works, let me know about possible issues that could arise, and explained exactly what steps we would take if an issue did come up. He was very detailed in what I needed to do from our first conversation. He made the process painless and prepared me for everything from start to finish, and never treated any of my questions as if they were stupid... even though I am sure some where! I would highly recommend Derek Prosser to anybody looking to file BK!

My wife and I have had little need for attorneys throughout the course of our life, so when our financial affairs recently and unexpectedly collapsed, we were apprehensive about the process of bankruptcy and about how we would get through it - and we knew that we needed an attorney. We chose Toronjo and Prosser because of their excellent reviews. I will say this, the high rating this law office holds is absolutely warranted. Derek Prosser was personable, respectful, and highly efficient. He helped us through the process with - to me - surprising quickness and thoroughness. Our options were explained clearly and then executed promptly. For anyone that finds themselves in similar unfortunate financial circumstances, I highly recommend Toronjo and Prosser.
