While most bankruptcy cases can be resolved through a simple administrative proceeding, sometimes the disputes are more complicated. A creditor may ask the court to deny discharge of a debt or request a finding about the extent of its interest in a property. If that happens, you may be involved in an adversarial proceeding that requires the help of an experienced attorney.

How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located near you?
