Attorney for Filing Bankruptcy

Are you looking for an attorney for filing bankruptcy?  Well, there are several ways to find one.  Of course, you can search the internet, or the local phone book.  That is a start, in that you can retrieve names and phone numbers, and see who is within reasonable driving distance. 

Next, you should see how long they have been doing bankruptcies.  There are a lot of attorneys that jumped into doing bankruptcies when the real estate market went south. 

Next, you may want to inquire as to what organizations they are a member of.  Some notable organizations are the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys that represent consumer debtors, and the American Bankruptcy Institute, that is geared towards business bankruptcies.  There may also be local bankruptcy organizations within your area.  For example, in Jacksonville, Florida, where I am from and practice, there is the Jacksonville Bankruptcy Bar Association.  Membership in these organizations reflects ones commitment to professionalism and education when it comes to bankruptcy matters.

I hope this is of some help in assisting you in locating a competent bankruptcy attorney in your area.
