Individuals working through a bankruptcy case have most likely been introduced to the complexity and nuances of the legal process and court requirements. When you file for bankruptcy, you are required to provide comprehensive details of your income sources, debts, properties, and all other financial information. Not only can this documentation be daunting for most individuals unfamiliar with the process, but other issues may arise in any case that will require additional court hearings, such as creditor objections to the discharge of certain debts, judgment proceedings, and more. The best way to navigate any kind of bankruptcy is to seek the support and guidance of a qualified attorney. If you are looking for an expert bankruptcy lawyer in Luverne, MN or the surrounding areas, Behm Law Group, Ltd. offers complete services to help you work through your case from start to finish.

Why you might need a new lawyer:
There are many reasons why you might need to replace your current bankruptcy attorney. For example, they may not be maintaining good communication by returning your calls and emails or outlining the process at each step. They could also not have the experience needed to handle your specific case if unusual circumstances arise.
If your attorney doesn’t come to your appointments and court hearings, such as the meeting of creditors, you may find yourself wanting to examine your professional relationship with them. The same is true if they fail to meet filing deadlines or if they file incomplete documentation in your petition.
If for any reason your attorney causes delays in your case, makes more unnecessary work for you, creates additional and unnecessary legal costs, or unexpectedly increases their fees for unexplained reasons, you may want to examine your relationship. When these issues arise, you should make every effort to respectfully engage your attorney first and fully discuss any concerns you may have. You should always err on the side of caution and not make definitive conclusions and you should always provide your attorney with a good faith chance to redress any concerns you have. It is important to understand that your attorney may not even be aware that anything is wrong or that you have significant concerns. It is also important to understand that many attorneys won’t want to take a case where there has been a dispute between someone and one’s previous attorney. Further, hiring a second/alternate attorney will result in additional legal costs.
