As a Phoenix Attorney who specializes in bankruptcy law, my biggest suggestion to anyone wanting to file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is simple: fully cooperate with your attorney and fully disclose your financial information to your attorney.

As mentioned in previous articles, a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is usually the quickest and cheapest remedy for most individual debtors to get their financial house in order. However, to reach that goal, a cooperative relationship between the debtor and his or her attorney is not only recommended, but a necessity.

Bankruptcy attorneys understand that many people have financial skeletons in their closet, especially those who take risks in starting a business or have various personal financial issues. For example, some debtors may assume that they don’t have to disclose every piece of property that they own to their bankruptcy attorney or the bankruptcy trustee. Unfortunately, that is a very bad assumption and if you are caught, you risk not only the dismissal of your case, but also criminal penalties and big fines. Therefore, be sure to reveal any and all potential skeletons to your bankruptcy attorney at the initial consultation.

In summary, the only way to proceed with a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is to tell your attorney everything. Don’t take matters into your own hands. Rather, give you attorney a chance to do his job and resolve your issues for you. To do otherwise is to risk dismissal of your bankruptcy and also potential civil and criminal penalties.

    I called around looking for the right bankruptcy lawyer and came across Benjamin Wright. He personally called me for the consultation seeing how I live in Kingman AZ. He was very helpful from the start and his staff was very friendly and explained any questions I had, sorry for all the questions. I would definitely recommend Wright law offices, and I do!! Thanks for everything, you made what seemed like a hard thing to do simple!! You guys rock!!!

    Great lawyer, he really helped my mother out of a jam. She was totally new to bankruptcy and he talked with us for about an hour and a half to make sure she wouldn’t be worried.

    Ben is a kind and down to earth attorney. He worked around my busy schedule as a single mom (school, full-time job, and daycare pick up and drop off times). He explained absolutely everything to me and was good about e-mailing. I am writing this review as a THANK YOU.

    TOP Rated PHOENIX BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEY
    I had a very positive experience with Attorney Wright. He or his staff returned my e-mails and calls promptly (even after business hours occasionally). His fees were reasonable. He was patient with me when I showed up in court missing an important document. He is aggressive, but fair and nice.
