Timeline: Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation with either John, Roseanne or Brendan, they will review your financial situation and discuss any immediate issues such as pending wage garnishments or home foreclosures.

The attorney will also:

  • Discuss which Chapter of bankruptcy you will be able to file.
  • Explain how long the process will take and which debts will be discharged.
  • Review the retainer agreement listing the costs and fees of filing your bankruptcy petition and if necessary, arrange a payment plan that fits your needs.
  • Answer any additional questions you may have.

We always ask our potential clients to bring as much information as possible to their initial consultation. The more information the attorneys have to look at, the better they will be able to advise you and the more productive the consultation will be. Of course, if you decide not to retain the attorney after your consultation you are free to take all of your documents home with you.
