Choosing A Bankruptcy Attorney

What To Look For

Deciding which lawyer to hire for your bankruptcy case is one of the most important financial decisions you can make. You deserve an attorney who will explore all your debt relief options and give you the information you need to make a sound decision. You need someone who understands your goals, who’ll listen to your concerns and talk in language you can understand, and will help you make a fresh financial start.

My name is Maureen O’Malley. Since 1982, I have been helping individuals in financial distress understand their debt reduction options. We will decide together if Chapter 7 bankruptcy is right for you, and I will then prepare and file your case myself, guiding you through every step of the legal process.

Tips for Finding a Bankruptcy Lawyer

A good bankruptcy attorney will:

  • Have extensive legal experience
  • Spend a good portion of his/her practice on bankruptcy law
  • Handle your case directly
  • Treat you with dignity and respect
  • Explain the legal process in plain language
  • Return your phone calls promptly
  • Stay informed about current bankruptcy laws

Each bankruptcy case is different. Therefore, you need an attorney who will take the time to listen to your situation and understand your needs. At the Law Office of Maureen O’Malley, that’s exactly what I do.

My Approach

Hard-working people get into debt for a number of reasons. Whether you have lost your job, have medical bills or simply made some financial mistakes, I will listen to your story without judgment. My goal is to provide the necessary debt relief information so you can choose your next step.

Be wary of people who claim bankruptcy is a do-it-yourself process.

One common mistake people in financial distress make is filing bankruptcy on their own. While it is possible to do so, it is not advisable. Because bankruptcy laws are complicated, and each situation is different, you need to have a thorough understanding of the legal process to file. Hiring a lawyer to handle your case can help you prevent irreparable harm and save you money in the long run.
