Level of Experience

Experience is one of the most important things to look for when comparing Miami bankruptcy lawyers. The Bankruptcy Code is complex,  and it takes years of practice to master.

A bankruptcy lawyer’s knowledge comes from through years of practice representing clients and appearing in court, rather than from law school or reading up on the subject .

Things to look for concerning a bankruptcy attorney’s experience:

  • How many bankruptcy cases has the attorney filed? You want an attorney who has successfully represented at least 1000 clients. You don’t want to be the first!
  • How long has the lawyer been practicing in the area of bankruptcy law? Look for a minimum of five to 10 years of practice in Miami.
  • What is the lawyer’s success rate in getting debts discharged? As about success rates in getting cases discharged.

Regularly Practices Bankruptcy in your Area

Although bankruptcy is Federal Law, you must also comply with the Court for the Southern District of Florida’s Local Rules and forms. Failure to abide by these rules can result in your case being dismissed.

Additionally, since a bankruptcy Trustee will administer your  case, it is extremely helpful for an attorney to be familiar with the Miami Trustee’s guidelines and procedures. An experienced attorney will have years of experience in front of your Miami chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy.

Credentials

In addition to being a licensed Florida attorney, a bankruptcy lawyer must be admitted to practice in the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida. Look of attorneys in good standing with the Florida Bar  and check their credentials. 

Recognition, Reviews, and Ratings

Read more than review to have a more accurate  picture. Look for at least a 4.5 star rating  and see if there is a trend in positive experiences.

Accreditation form third party sites such as Avvo is a good things for your attorney to have.

Office Locations

It’s a good idea for your attorney to have an office near you so you can meet, see where they work,  and quickly drop off documents when needed.

Personality, Communication, and People Skills

You should feel comfortable in working  with your bankruptcy lawyer.
