If you are struggling with debt and wondering if a bankruptcy filing might be a good option, you should consult with a Philadelphia bankruptcy attorney sooner rather than later. If you do a quick Google search, you will find an overwhelming number of bankruptcy attorneys in the area. So where do you even start?
Obviously experience matters, their fees might be a consideration, but in my opinion what you really need is someone who is more focused on trying to solve your problem than they are in selling you bankruptcy.
The purpose of meeting with a Bankruptcy attorney in Philadelphia is to review your situation and figure out how to best resolve it. If an attorney has their mind made up that you should file for bankruptcy before they really know the details of your circumstances, then you might want to seek a second opinion before pulling the trigger.

I was facing a lawsuit for a credit card debt and I am thankful that I found Coleman & Kempinski. I worked with Kimberly and was very satisfied with her expertise, accessibility and sympathetic manner. Many law firms have answering services that take their calls and you don’t get to speak to an actual attorney until you are in their office. I was able to pick up the phone and speak directly with Kimberly and immediately discuss my situation. This was particularly important because I was in a serious time crunch. When I did go into their office I didn’t need to spend $20 at a Center City parking garage, I just parked outside their office in Northern Liberties in a free parking space! Once inside their stylish new office I felt like I was treated compassionately and most importantly Kimberly’s advice empowered me to negotiate my debt down by 35%, a major savings! I would highly recommend Coleman & Kempinski if you are facing any legal financial issues.

Knowing that these are really difficult times for everybody, I still was not anxious to consider bankruptcy. I phoned and spoke to Kim at length who asked some questions and used both ears to listen! Working with Kim was a real pleasure. Easy to get a hold of, and if left messages she always returned the call. As a former Colonel from MASH used to say, “There’s not enough O’s in Smooth!” Kim made the entire process painless! Call her with questions.
Tony B – a week ago So, a bankruptcy attorney isn’t somewhere you ever want to go. But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, right? Well, working with Kim Coleman was perfectly smooth all the way. I had the feeling that I was doing something positive, and a year later I still do. Kim still answers my calls for tips about getting back on track. Just have questions to see if bankruptcy is for you? That’s how I started, and I’m happy to write a review for this small independent Philly company.
Meeting With the Right Philadelphia Bankruptcy Attorney Is Important
As a consumer in debt, you will find it difficult to get honest information about the bankruptcy process from programs that sell alternative debt relief programs. You will hear things like bankruptcy will ruin your life, your credit, your job prospects, and your ability to even rent a place to live. Unfortunately most of what you hear about bankruptcy just isn’t true. Bankruptcy is certainly not the answer for all situations, but the only way to know for sure is to ask a Philadelphia bankruptcy Attorney to review your situation and explain how a bankruptcy filing would look for you.
