Bankruptcy Attorney California
When you decide to pursue a bankruptcy filing in California, by working with a qualified attorney, the entire bankruptcy process should take an average of four months, with a major portion of that time frame spent waiting for your final meeting with the judge.
Obviously, if you want to pursue bankruptcy protection, after exhausting your other options, the first move is to choose an attorney, preferably one who specializes in bankruptcy law.
Bankruptcy law is incredibly complex and most people who file for protection have been coping with pressure from unscrupulous creditors for months or even years. Due to the complexities of bankruptcy law and unscrupulous pressure from creditors, it’s important that consumers have strong representation.
However, before hiring an attorney to actually pursue bankruptcy, consumers should thoroughly review their case with legal counsel and, if necessary, save the money necessary to retain them. In California and in most states, consumers can complete pre-filing credit counseling online for a nominal fee.
And, once your attorney files for bankruptcy on your behalf, creditors are no longer allowed to call and harass you. For many clients, we’ve found that this is the first step to emotional recovery.
