Questions to ask your bankruptcy attorney:
- Is your practice exclusively Bankruptcy?
- For how many years?
- After Chapter 7 discharge, will you, without charge, defend me against claims from discharged creditors?
- If you represent me in Chapter 7, will you clean my credit balances from the three credit reporting agencies at no additional cost?
- If you represent me in a Chapter 7, and after I received my discharge, will you be available to defend me, at no charge, if and when, one of the listed creditors tries to collect on the discharged debt?
- If you represent me in a Chapter 13, will your plan give me the benefits of Section 524(i) of the Bankruptcy Code?
- If you represent me in a Chapter 13 where a second mortgage is removed, will you proceed with the recommended Adversary Proceedings?
- If you represent me in a Chapter 7 or a Chapter 13, and after I receive my discharge, will you defend me, at no charge, if and when, the holder of the first mortgage claims that my account is not current?
- Have you ever collected any damages for your bankruptcy client for a creditor violation?
