Consider the Following when Hiring a Bankruptcy Debt Relief Attorney

1. EXPERIENCE.

There Is Just No Substitute for Experience. Mr. Brown Has Almost 30 Years of Experience Representing Clients in Bankruptcy Cases. He Has Represented Numerous Clients on Both Sides of the Bankruptcy Docket, Giving Him Keen Insight into What the Other Side Is Probably Thinking.

 

 
 

Ascertain the following in this area:

 

A. How many years has the attorney been practicing bankruptcy law?

Jerome A. Brown: Over 25 years.

 

B. How many bankruptcy cases has the attorney been involved in as the lead attorney?

Jerome A. Brown: Hundreds of cases.

 

C. Has the attorney handled Chapter 7, 11, 12 and 13 bankruptcy cases? If so, how many cases under each Chapter has the attorney handled?

Jerome A. Brown: Yes. He has handled numerous cases under each of these Chapters. This experience gives him an excellent understanding of the best bankruptcy chapter under which to file a client's case.

 

D. Has the attorney handled numerous cases on both sides of the bankruptcy docket?

Jerome A. Brown: Yes. Hundreds of cases.

 

2. BANKRUPTCY BOARD CERTIFICATION AND COURT ADMISSIONS.

The Texas Board of Legal Specialization (TBLS) was formed and is operated under the authority of the Supreme Court of Texas. The purpose of TBLS is to help people seeking legal counsel for a specific problem, such as bankruptcy, find an attorney who is experienced and possesses special competence in that area. This very demanding certification process is both individual and voluntary. It helps insure that the citizens of Texas receive the highest quality legal services. Because the Texas program is nationally recognized as one of the most outstanding legal specialization programs in the country, many states send representatives to Texas for help in setting up their own specialization programs. For more information on why you should choose a board certified bankruptcy attorney, CLICK HERE.

 

Mr. Brown is one of the very few attorneys in Texas who is board certified in bankruptcy law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Additionally, Mr. Brown is one of even fewer attorneys who are BOARD CERTIFIED IN BOTH CONSUMER AND BUSINESS BANKRUPTCY LAW by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. In addition, he is a Past Chair of the Texas Board of Legal Specialization - Bankruptcy Law Advisory Commission.

 

Mr. Brown is licensed to practice law in all state and federal courts in Texas. This allows him to provide statewide coverage to clients.

 

These are just some of the reasons that Mr. Brown is uniquely qualified to represent clients in bankruptcy cases.

 

On the other hand, very few of our competitors are board certified in bankruptcy law. Many of our competitors just do not have the experience or other credentials required to become board certified. If the attorney is not board certified in bankruptcy law, ask why they are not. Likewise, most of our competition is not licensed to practice law in all federal courts in Texas. Some are not even licensed to practice law in Texas state courts.

 

Ascertain the following in this area:

 

A. Is the attorney board certified in bankruptcy law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization?

Jerome A. Brown: Yes, in BOTH CONSUMER AND BUSINESS BANKRUPTCY LAW.

 

B. Is the attorney licensed to practice law in all state and federal courts in Texas?

Jerome A. Brown: Yes.

 

3. PERSONAL SERVICE.

At The Brown Law Firm we take pride in the personal service we give to our clients. In fact, when prospective clients initially contact us, they are usually able to talk to Mr. Brown directly the great majority of the time. At the initial consultation, Mr. Brown will personally discuss your financial situation with you and answer your questions. Thereafter, he will personally remain involved in the preparation of your case and be available for consultation with you until your case is concluded. We get to know our clients on a first name basis. Also, our phones are answered 24 hours a day, so you can rest assured that you will be able to quickly contact us in case you are faced with an emergency situation. We also maintain offices in both Austin and Victoria that are staffed during work hours by attorneys and/or legal assistants.

 

Ascertain the following in this area:

 

A. How many times will you be able to meet personally with the attorney?

Jerome A. Brown: You will meet at least twice with Mr. Brown and most likely more depending upon the difficulty of your case.

 

B. Will the attorney be available to personally take my calls or respond to my e-mails?

Jerome A. Brown: Yes. He even gives clients his cell phone number, so he can promptly respond to clients. Not many bankruptcy attorneys (or any other type of attorneys, for that matter) give their cell phone number to their clients.

 

C. Does the attorney have a local office that is staffed during work hours?

Jerome A. Brown: Yes.

 

 

4. ATTORNEY'S FEES.

In the bankruptcy cases we handle, we provide you with a free initial consultation. Then, if it is not a complicated case, we are usually able to quote you a flat fee for handling your bankruptcy case so that you know upfront exactly the amount you will be charged. We also utilize legal assistants (whose hourly rates are cheaper than those of attorneys), when your case allows, in order to lower your legal fees. We also provide payment plans with easy terms for our clients.

 

Ascertain the following in this area:

 

A. Will the attorney provide you a free initial consultation in connection with your bankruptcy case?

Jerome A. Brown: Yes.

 

B. Will the attorney charge you a flat fee for handling your bankruptcy case?

Jerome A. Brown: Yes. We charge a flat fee in the great majority of the bankruptcy cases we file.

 

C. Does the attorney impose conditions on the flat fee or charge add-ons?

Jerome A. Brown: No. If we quote you a flat fee in writing, then that is the amount you will be charged to handle your case.

 

D. Does the attorney provide payment plans for clients?

Jerome A. Brown: Yes.

 

5. Ethics Information.

The Brown Law Firm encourages you to check the credentials and ethics record of every attorney you consider hiring. Obviously, it is preferable to hire an attorney that has not committed ethical violations. You can check the general credentials and ethics record of any Texas attorney at the Texas State Bar website. Go to the "Find a Lawyer" tab at the bottom of the State Bar's home page and specify the attorney's name. This site will also provide other helpful information about the attorney such as education, practice areas, year licensed, court admissions and board certifications. You should also inquire as to whether the attorney has ever been sanctioned by any court.

 

Ascertain the following in this area:

 

A. Has the attorney ever been disciplined for ethical violations?

Jerome A. Brown: No.

 

B. Has the attorney has ever been sanctioned by any court?
