Philadelphia bankruptcy lawyers come in dozens of shapes, sizes and backgrounds. Well, they all at least graduated from law school, but other than this requirement of the job they vary in personality, in specialty, and in temperament. So when you require a Philadelphia bankruptcy attorney, it is of particular importance to meet with him in person first.
Every Philadelphia bankruptcy lawyer offers consultations. It helps the lawyer figure out whether or not he will take on your case. So consider a consultation the same thing on your end. You are also considering whether to hire him. Get a stronger sense of his personality, of his ethics, of his willingness to work long hours with you if necessary and his overall respect for you as a legal client. Your gut will come into play more than anything else here, but there is nothing wrong with that.
