Bankruptcy filings in Texas can be very confusing for anyone who doesn’t handle these kinds of cases on a daily basis. Trying to understand Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13 alone can be frustrating. Therefore it’s important that you have good legal counsel. However, you should interview several candidates before you hire a Dallas bankruptcy attorney. During your interview, make it a point to ask about case management, which essentially is how your case will be handled behind the scenes.
Being informed of the logistics of your case will help to prevent any misunderstandings. You should ask:
- will you or another attorney at this firm represent me in meetings with creditors and in court;
- who will oversee my filing;
- who can I call when I have questions;
- what’s the preferred method of communication;
- when I leave a message, how soon should I expect a response; and
- how often will I receive status reports and what will be included in these reports?
Your attorney should also explain Chapter 7 vs. chapter 13, bankruptcy rules of procedure and legal fees. During your initial consultation, you will need to take in enough information to decide whether this is the attorney you want to represent your interests.
