Your first visit to a bankruptcy attorneyWritten by Craig D. Robins, Esq.
Many of our clients are justifiably anxious about meeting with a bankruptcy for the first time. 
However, a good, experienced bankruptcy attorney should be able to put the client at ease, review their financial situation, explain whether bankruptcy is a good option, and if so, discuss how a bankruptcy filling will work. 
What Documents Should You Bring to the Bankruptcy Attorney?
Getting the most from your first bankruptcy consultation requires that you bring certain financial papers.  I’ve learned that in order to best advise clients about bankruptcy and consider all of the various options, I need to know all of the details of their finances.
Here is a list of documents that I typically ask my Long Island bankruptcy clients to bring to their first meeting with me:
• One recent bill from each creditor
• Collection letters and any law suit papers
• As many pay stubs as you can locate for the past six or seven months
• Tax returns for the past two years
• Drivers license and Social Security card
There are other papers we will need if we go forward with a bankruptcy filing, but the above items usually enables us to meet with the client and review their situation.
