How to Find a Bankruptcy Attorney

We believe that finding a bankruptcy attorney is fairly simple; all that you have to do is call The Sellers Law Firm! However, even we agree that before you hire a bankruptcy attorney that there are certain things that you should consider. We believe that you should always hire a bankruptcy attorney and that you should never try to represent yourself! Bankruptcy law is extremely complicated, and most people who try to represent themselves find that their cases are dismissed within a few months.

First, when considering which bankruptcy attorney to hire make sure that the attorney will put everything in writing. This should include what the fees will be and what services are being offered for those fees. At The Sellers Law Firm our Montgomery bankruptcy lawyers and our Selma bankruptcy lawyers use an agreement which shows what our fees for a Chapter 7  bankruptcy or a Chapter 13  debt consolidation plan will be. It also shows what services we offer and what the court cost will be for your case. This document is signed by both you and one of our bankruptcy attorneys so that both parties clearly know what is expected.

When you begin your search for a bankruptcy attorney, you should look for attorneys whose focus is on bankruptcy law and avoid lawyers who practice consists of everything but the kitchen sink. A law firm who has a focus in only one or two areas of law would generally stay up to date on the most recent cases and laws. You should also accept referrals from family, friends, or even other lawyers who might have helped you in the past. Some employers have a group sponsored legal plans. If so, you should check to see if there are any bankruptcy attorneys in the legal plan. It does not necessarily mean that you should choose this attorney, but this is a good place to start. Finally, and most importantly, one of the best places to look for a lawyer is on the internet. Look for a bankruptcy attorney who has a detailed website which should include a great deal of information about bankruptcy law. Usually, this attorney is trying to make a case to show to potential clients that they are skilled in the subject matter. At this point, if you need help, please call our Montgomery bankruptcy lawyers or our Selma bankruptcy lawyers.  All consultations are free, and our phones are answered 24 hours a day! Call or text us at 334-LAWYERS (529-9377).

When you go to meet with your chosen bankruptcy attorney make sure that you take a list of questions that you have. Be as specific as possible so that the attorney can answer all the questions that you have. Also make a list of all your debts and your expenses so that you can be able to discuss this in detail with the attorney. There is no such thing as too much information! Some of the questions you may want to ask the attorney are: how many years has he been practicing law, how many cases has he handled, what percentage of his practice is devoted to bankruptcy law, how will the attorney and his or her staff communicate with you. At The Sellers Law Firm, we have been doing bankruptcy cases for four decades! Our Montgomery bankruptcy attorneys and Selma bankruptcy attorneys  will communicate with you in a variety of ways. First, we're always open to meet with you in person. Second, we can call you or video chat when there are issues or there is information that we would need or when you have questions. Third, you can always email us. Fourth and finally, you may always call or text us at 334- LAWYERS (529-9377).

At The Sellers Law Firm, we not only want you to know the attorneys that will be representing you, but also the staff members that will be assisting you! We pride ourselves on the knowledge that our staff has compassion and the knowledge to help our clients. In all honesty we do not believe that we could have a better set of legal assistants and paralegals that assist us with your case and that can assist you with any questions that you may have.

Client Reviews
Brandon was my first choice for an attorney because he is part of the community and you see him at the local store or PTA meetings and he always has time for you and answer your concerns. Ronica Phifer
The Sellers Law Firm represented me in my social security case, and later in my Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I have been very happy with all that you have done for me, and I refer people to you all the time. Thanks for all that you have done for me and my family. Angie Langford
I would like to start out by saying Brandon sellers is more than a lawyer that has helped my family out in numerous occasions but he's also a great friend to our family. Whenever he can't find a resolution for the problem he always recommends somebody that can. I've known him for years grew up together always been really good friends. I like to say in closing I'm really glad I know him I'm glad he's been able to help us when we've needed him. Thanks for everything you've done. Timothy Palmer
