Filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Omaha – ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL considerations when choosing an attorney

Filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy is not only important in and of itself, it also establishes a 3 to 5 year relationship with a Chapter 13 attorney and his or her office.  This  is something to seriously consider and contemplate before making a decision as to what Omaha bankruptcy attorney to work with if you need to file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

If you are considering filing a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you obviously want to choose the best attorney to represent you.  You want someone who is knowledgeable, smart, careful, effective, prudent, decisive, caring and kind.   You are scared and anxious about the future and need a compassionate yet competent hand at the wheel.  What you don’t need is obvious: a lawyer who is arrogant, judgmental, ill-informed, inexperienced, uncaring, reckless and self-centered.  Another thing to really think about:  you are engaging in a 3 to 5 year relationship with this attorney (and his or her office).  Life happens and circumstances change all the time for people.  An event might change your financial situation a week after you file a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.  Is your attorney going to be available to help you make the necessary adjustments?
