Bankruptcy Phone Consultations in New York City
If you need a plumber, or a new laptop it makes sense to call around a little, but finding the right bankruptcy attorney is not something that should be done over the phone. When it comes to finding a bankruptcy attorney a phone consultation simply won’t do for a number of reasons from our perspective, and with their whole financial lives at stake we hope our clients see the importance of a face to face meeting as well. We interview potential clients almost every day, so believe us when we say it would be much easier if we could just speak on the phone, but to get the best results you’ll need to come in.
Your bankruptcy attorney will be by your side to assist with all aspects of your case, but your presence will be required at times during the process. You will need to attend the 341 meeting of creditors in person if you file bankruptcy in order for your identity to be confirmed by the court. Similarly, your attorney will need to verify your identity as well before they can begin working with you. Trustees in New York City know this about our firm and appreciate our thoroughness. We maintain a 100% Chapter 7 bankruptcy discharge record in New York City as of 3/11/2014. We take every bankruptcy case we represent very seriously, but we do not take every case. Most of our business continues to be word of mouth, and our firm has grown successful by insisting on a thorough one-on-one consultation for every client. We are very busy, but we will not sacrifice the quality of an in person interview for an over the phone shortcut.
Bankruptcy law is also a fairly competitive arena. Not every firm is as experienced as the next. We have desperate competitors routinely call our offices to inquire about pricing, or worse about how they should go about filing a complicated bankruptcy. They will pose as clients, but are really hoping to pick our brains in thinking we might reveal some of our trade secrets. Not every firm has as much experience filing complicated cases, and we have seen other attorneys paint themselves into a corner by taking a case over the phone that they shouldn’t have or a case that turned out to be far more complicated than they thought. This usually ends up bad for the client and for the attorney. We will bail them out too, but they need to arrange an in person consultation like everyone else.
Rest assured if you are underwater on your finances and in real need of bankruptcy protection we will represent you.
