There are few things more important than our finances. Without them, we can’t afford the things we want and need. Unfortunately for many individuals here in New Jersey and throughout the United States, they find themselves in situations where they are deep in debt and cannot pay off those debts. If you’re one of them, you’re most likely considering your options. One of those options is filing for bankruptcy, however, this may seem like a daunting and overwhelming task. Part of this feeling may be attributed to the cost of hiring an attorney to represent you. If you’re already in debt, you’re likely not in the best position to shell out even more money. However, that said, hiring a Bergen County bankruptcy lawyer to guide you through the process is the smartest thing you can do. Please continue reading and reach out to the Law Office of Boyd & Squitieri to learn more about why you should hire a bankruptcy attorney and how our firm can help you.

Why should I hire an attorney to go through the bankruptcy process?

There are several reasons why it’s in your best interests to hire a bankruptcy attorney to take you through the process. Just some of the most important reasons are as follows:

  • A bankruptcy attorney is familiar with the law and bankruptcy process. Most importantly, by hiring a bankruptcy lawyer to represent you, you’re hiring someone who has extensive experience walking clients through the bankruptcy process. Though you technically can represent yourself as you go through the process, it doesn’t mean you should. Doing so can imperil your case and end up costing you far more in the long run than simply hiring a professional who knows the ins and outs of bankruptcy law.
  • An attorney can help you stay organized. When you hire us to represent you through your bankruptcy case, we will keep a detailed file of all relevant information pertaining to your case. Without hiring an attorney, you put yourself at risk of incorrectly filing certain documents, missing deadlines, and even losing important documentation altogether. We can help ensure you’re organized, timely, and never miss a beat.
  • Your attorney is your number one advocate. Your attorney is obligated to fight, to the best of his or her ability, for an ideal outcome on your behalf. When you retain a lawyer from our firm, you can feel confident that you’ll have a strong advocate who’s ready to go to bat for you. Your attorney is on your side. Your attorney cares about your future. In fact, to us, your future is the absolute most important thing.
