If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, it is important to find a competent and experienced bankruptcy attorney that will help guide you through the entire process (from start to finish) as smoothly as possible. Here are some things to look for when choosing a bankruptcy attorney and where to find this information:

  1. Experience: Look for an attorney who has experience in handling bankruptcy cases. It may seem obvious, but a bankruptcy attorney who has handled many cases will be more familiar with the bankruptcy process and more likely the specific requirements of your case. To check the experience of a Nevada-licensed bankruptcy attorney, you can visit the State Bar of Nevada website and see when that attorney was licensed in the State of Nevada. You can also see if that attorney has any disciplinary actions.

Here is Charlie Luh’s State Bar of Nevada profile:

  1. Knowledge: Choose an attorney who is knowledgeable about the bankruptcy laws in your state. They should also be able to explain the process to you and answer any questions (even the hard ones) you may have. Check out the Luh & Associates bankruptcy blog for common questions and answers.
  2. Communication: Choose an attorney who is responsive and communicates clearly. They should be able to explain legal concepts in plain language and keep you updated on the status of your case. At Luh & Associates, we strive to return all client calls and emails within 24-48 hours.
  3. Fees: Look for an attorney who charges reasonable fees and offers a payment plan if necessary. Be wary of attorneys who charge very low fees, as they may not be experienced or may not provide quality representation.
  4. Reputation: Choose an attorney with a good reputation in the legal community. You can research an attorney’s reputation by checking online reviews and asking for referrals from friends and family. There are many sources that you can use to check the “reputation” of an attorney. One source is Martindale Hubbell, which is a legal directory and rating service that has been in operation since the late 1800s. It is one of the most widely recognized and respected resources for lawyers and legal professionals. Martindale Hubbell offers a range of services, including lawyer ratings and peer reviews. Charlie Luh has attained an AV rating (5.0 out of 5.0), which is the highest rating bestowed by Martindale Hubbell
  1. Comfort level: It is important to feel comfortable with your attorney and confident in their ability to represent you. Schedule a consultation with potential attorneys to get a sense of their communication style and approach to your case.

In summary, when choosing a bankruptcy attorney, look for experience, knowledge, communication skills, reasonable fees, a good reputation, and a comfortable working relationship. We believe that you will find all those qualities at Luh & Associates.
