We believe your attorney should not speak in legalese

Finding an attorney who is a “real person” can be difficult. Many attorneys surround themselves almost exclusively with other attorneys and are accustomed to speaking in ivory tower legalese.  You should be able to connect with your attorney on a personal level, and he or she should speak to you in plain language that you can understand.  You will be working very closely with this person on issues that are very important to you. It is important that he or she be down-to-earth and someone that you connect with.

We believe your attorney should be accessible

The most common complaint that clients have of their attorneys is that the attorney is unreachable, does not communicate with them regularly, or does not promptly return your calls.  Your attorney should reach out to you about your case regularly and respond within 24 hours to calls and e-mails.  An open line of communication between you and your attorney is essential to building trust.

Learn how we service your area through our Remote Location Approach.

We believe your attorney should be realistic with you about costs and outcomes

Your attorney’s goal should not be to win at all costs.  Rather, it should be to achieve a favorable outcome for you as efficiently as possible.  It is important that your attorney set realistic expectations at the outset as to the costs you should expect, the concerns that the attorney has about the outcome of your case, and the length of time that you should expect your case to take.

Regardless of the nature of your case, we have an experienced attorney who will focus on your individual needs. Our team of attorneys works closely together, bringing each of their different fields of experience to bear in order to optimize our client care.

About Bankruptcy Lawyers Racine:

Facing financial challenges in Racine, Wisconsin, can feel overwhelming, but you don't have to go down this path alone. Our Racine bankruptcy lawyers are here to offer the support and guidance you need, helping you understand your options and find a way forward.

Understanding Bankruptcy in Racine, Wisconsin

Bankruptcy can offer a fresh start for those overwhelmed by debt, but the process and options available can be intricate. In Racine, our dedicated bankruptcy attorneys are equipped to guide you through every step, ensuring you make informed decisions about your financial future.

Bankruptcy Options: Chapter 7 vs. Chapter 13

Understanding the differences between bankruptcy filings is crucial:

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: Known as liquidation bankruptcy, it's designed for individuals with limited income, allowing them to eliminate most unsecured debts.
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: This reorganization bankruptcy enables individuals with regular income to develop a plan to repay all or part of their debts over time.

Our Racine bankruptcy attorneys can help determine which path suits your situation best, considering your income, debts, and financial goals.

Do You Need an Attorney to File Bankruptcy?

While individuals can file for bankruptcy without an attorney, navigating the legal requirements, paperwork, and proceedings can be challenging. A bankruptcy attorney brings:

  • Deep understanding of bankruptcy laws and procedures.
  • Ability to anticipate and manage potential complications.
  • Guidance on protecting your assets and managing creditor harassment.

A Racine Bankruptcy Story
