Although the “best bankruptcy lawyer in Cincinnati” for you may not be not be the same bankruptcy lawyer for someone else. Everybody’s different. But, as a Cincinnati consumer bankruptcy attorney I can help you review the Cincinnati bankruptcy lawyers online and help you find the one that’s best for you.
In a perfect world, I would want to interview as many lawyers as possible before deciding which is the “best.” Practically, however, you don’t have time to actually call a long list of lawyers, make appointments, interview them, and then decide.
How? Every law firm has a website. The lawyer’s website offers you a surprisingly accurate way to “get to know” the lawyer. Lawyer websites reveal more about the lawyer’s mind than most attorneys realize.
You can “read between the lines” and get to know the mind-set of the lawyer without even visiting his office.
I would suggest you search for “bankruptcy lawyer in Cincinnati Ohio” check out the results. To help you evaluate the different websites, I have created a “scorecard” for you, as well as a detailed article which helps you zero in on exactly what to look for.
You will be amazed at what you find.
You’ll be surprised at what you DON’T find, as well.
What you don’t find on an attorney websites can tell you as much as what you do see.
Why? If you have a serious illness, you don’t go to your family doctor. You insist on seeing a certified specialist. Preferably a board certified doctor who has decades of experience treating the exact illness you had. This is just common sense.
The same applies when looking for your Cincinnati bankruptcy lawyer. Look for those who are Board Certified Specialists. The Ohio Supreme Court regulates the specialization of lawyers and only those lawyers who meet the standards set by the court are permitted to advertise that they are specialists.
Often, when you have serious debt, your credit has suffered as well. Most folks I help just assume that if they need the serious help with their finances that bankruptcy offers, their credit will be ruined for a long time – but this is not necessarily true!
You need a complete financial recovery.
This includes recovering your credit, as well as resolving your debt difficulties.
How can you do both?
Most Cincinnati bankruptcy lawyers I know do not offer any assistance or advice to help their clients recover credit after discharge of debts.
But you need both debt relief, and help to recover your credit.
How can you get both?
You can have both.
There are two approaches to do it.
You could try to use one of any number credit repair agencies – they are everywhere on the internet – and pay them to help your credit. The danger is that many of them are ineffective, at best, and outright scams, at the worst.
And even more important, these programs are really not specifically designed by a veteran consumer bankruptcy specialist who has coached hundreds of bankruptcy clients to improve their credit after discharge of debts.
Wouldn’t it make more sense to find a consumer bankruptcy specialist who is also certified consumer credit counselor? An attorney who has created a program to help improve your credit and read your credit report, so you can identify errors that hurt your score.
After chapter 7 discharge, or even while in a chapter 13 case, I can show you what to do, and how to do it. Credit recovery is not only possible, it’s easy, once you know how.
I help my clients finish the job that bankruptcy only starts.
So, now you know.
So let’s get started!
Do your research.
Read my method to “read the lawyer’s mind.”
Download and fill out the score-card.
Then you’ll know which lawyers you want to actually visit.
And, you would be wise to visit several, two or three.
Cost is important, of course, but remember, this is a “once in a lifetime” issue for you.
You often do “get what you pay for.”
You need the best lawyer for the job.
You can’t afford to get this wrong.
