NYC Bankruptcy Attorney Reviews
Many businesses these days live or die based on their online reviews, and this is the same for many bankruptcy attorneys as well. We are moving from an age of “information” to an age of “referral”. It seems as though everyone now goes to the web to make buying decisions on everything from books, to restaurants to attorneys.
Picking the wrong book to read, or the wrong restaurant for dinner based on web reviews is really no big deal. You might be out a little money. Using on-line reviews to choose an attorney is a much riskier proposition however. As an attorney in New York City I often scroll through the various review sites with a mixture of laughter and contempt. Some bankruptcy mills with marginal reputations in the industry that spend a tremendous amount of money on other advertising seem to have the most boastful reviews. These reviews make the choice easier for people that don’t care to do a little research or even seek the advice of a trusted friend or family member. The more reviews a firm has the more comfortable a client feels going to them. It’s basic human nature, but in this day and age when you can hire companies to do reviews for you for a few bucks a piece.
The bankruptcy attorneys I have the most respect for are actually pretty quiet on the web. They have built their businesses on referrals by doing good work for good people. They have honest and positive testimonials on the web, but these are buried by the deluge of nameless posts from firms with huge advertising budgets. Some of the best, most qualified bankruptcy attorneys in New York City still do things the old fashioned way. They build their law practices locally and organically helping people in their community the way a doctor would.
We think it’s still better to take the advice of a trusted friend or family member over a stranger on the web. Do a little research to find an attorney that you can feel very confident with, and that has the experience you need to get the fresh start you deserve. There are as many bankruptcy attorneys as restaurants in New York City, so using on-line resources is certainly a great place to start your search for a bankruptcy attorney, but you shouldn’t rely on them alone.
