Radio Show Summary:
It is very important when considering filing for bankruptcy to consult an experienced bankruptcy lawyer. I recently attended a bankruptcy seminar with Judges and Lawyers during which various bankruptcy cases were discussed.
Bankruptcy lawyers need to be current with the changes in case law. Inexperienced lawyers can turn routine cases into more complicated ones causing people to lose their homes, cars, bank accounts etc.
Bankruptcy Judges requests that debtors hire experienced bankruptcy lawyers which will reduce the burden on the judicial system while benefiting the consumer by keeping attorney fees reasonable.
Questions you should ask a bankruptcy attorney:
1) How many cases do you handle a month?
2) How many bankruptcy petitions have you filed?

A client needs a bankruptcy lawyer who understands the process and knows how to deal with the U.S. Trustee office. In 2005 Congress amended the code, which intended to push more debtors into chapter 13 in lieu of Chapter 7. At Berger, Fischoff, Shumer, Wexler & Shumer, LLP, we know the system. We have been very successful in qualifying our clients for chapter 7 bankruptcy.
