You can “reset” your finances by filing bankruptcy, but the process will be a lot easier if you have a good attorney on your side. So how do you find a good bankruptcy attorney? You don’t want to just pick a name out of the phone book. You want a lawyer who has plenty of experience in bankruptcy cases, and who’s going to be focused on what he or she can. To get an attorney like that, make sure to find one that has bankruptcy listed as a prominent practice area. That indicates the attorney has experience in that field, which is very important in getting the best settlement possible.
