At The Carmichael Firm
, we know that choosing a bankruptcy attorney is an important decision for our clients. Many of our clients have never needed to hire a lawyer and do not know where to begin. We believe the following things are important to consider when choosing the right bankruptcy attorney
Choose a bankruptcy attorney who is accessible. After all, what good is a bankruptcy attorney if you never get to talk with him or her? At The Carmichael Firm, you will be able to meet with a bankruptcy attorney at your free consultation. All of our attorneys try to take calls from clients as they come in, and we pride ourselves on the fact that we promptly return clients' phone calls. At some of the high volume law firms, the clients are actually photographed so the attorney who attends the hearing will be able to recognize the client. At The Carmichael Firm we make every effort to have the same attorney who meets with you on your first visit be with you every step of the way, including representing you at your 341 hearing with the bankruptcy trustee.

We strongly suggest that you consider choosing an attorney who has long-standing local ties, such as The Carmichael Firm.
