How to Choose an Attorney
March 3, 2023
Why Marc G. Alster Is the Right Choice for You
Your choice of attorneys is one of the most important decisions you will make. Many law firms offer bankruptcy filings as part of their services, but the firm or bankruptcy attorney may not specialize in or have the day to day and overall experience and understanding of the solutions available to individuals filing for bankruptcy protection or availing themselves of other potential debt-relief solutions. Mr. Alster has approximately 30 years of experience assisting individuals solve their serious debt problems, whether it be saving the equity in their homes from foreclosure, making sure debtors "get a fresh start" without unnecessarily putting their homes or other valuable assets at risk, etc.
Along these lines, it is important for all debtor(s) to realize that once they file a voluntary Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition, the petition cannot necessarily be voluntarily be withdrawn; it may become necessary to procure The U.S. Bankruptcy Courts Order allowing their case to be withdrawn/dismissed the Chapter 7 Trustee objects to the withdrawal of their petition. Incorrectly filing a bankruptcy petition can put a debtor's non-exempt assets (should there be any - see Bankruptcy Exemptions article on this website ), in jeopardy of being involuntarily sold by the Chapter 7 Trustee, who is automatically appointed by the Bankruptcy Court upon the filing of the bankruptcy petition. See the specific example provided in the other article in this section of our website, entitled "Do I Need an Attorney".
There are larger bankruptcy firms that take on hundreds of clients at the same time. You may not even speak to an attorney at some of these firms until after you have retained the firm, and this can be a "take a number" situation. There are also cheaper, non-attorney, bankruptcy preparers who often will not or cannot attend the 341(a) hearings with their clients. If the non-attorney, bankruptcy, preparer does attend the 341(a) hearing, he/she may be of little or no use to the debtor(s). A bankruptcy preparer/non-attorney cannot file papers or appear before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. This is not the case at the Law Offices of Marc G. Alster.
