background research cited as key for individuals searching for a reliable bankruptcy lawyer.

While filing for personal bankruptcy is undoubtedly stressful, the experience can be even more grueling when a consumer is unaware of how to navigate the bankruptcy process. In order to lower the risk of having a case rejected by a bankruptcy court, the financial website WalletPop has offered tips to help consumers find a reliable bankruptcy attorney.

Individuals filing for bankruptcy may want to contact their state bar association off the bat, which often offers lawyer referral services that link a consumer to practicing attorneys in their area. Plus, because state bar associations review complaints about lawyers, their websites may reveal if an attorney in their database has had disciplinary action taken against him or her, reported the source.

Determining whether a lawyer is a member of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys may be key for some petitioners. The organization specializes in assisting people who are deep in debt, which is why it may be beneficial for some consumers navigating a complicated bankruptcy to hire an attorney who is closely connected to a well-regarded consumer bankruptcy organization.

Finally, those who are searching for legal advice should set up appointments with lawyers who offer free, in-person consultations. Meeting an attorney in person with no-strings-attached can allow a consumer to judge how experienced their potential lawyer is and gauge whether he or she will be a good fit for their bankruptcy case.

Those filing for bankruptcy should also take heart and remember they are not alone. In 2010 alone, the American Bankruptcy Institute reports 1,530,078 households filed for bankruptcy.
