A virtual bankruptcy lawyer can communicate with you through emails and by the phone, and send any necessary documents for you to read or sign through email, fax, or regular mail. There are so many options with today’s technology that anything you and your bankruptcy lawyer need to do with each other, you don’t ever have to meet face to face to do it.
Because virtual lawyers don’t have the expensive corporate offices and fancy conference rooms that traditional law firms do, they are able to keep their overhead costs and expenses at an all-time low. Because of this, they can offer their clients the same expertise, professionalism and skill that any other lawyer can but at a much reduced price – something especially important when you’re filing for bankruptcy.
So can a virtual bankruptcy lawyer help you file for bankruptcy, and will they be an effective lawyer? Yes! There’s no reason to think that just because your lawyer is working out of their home office rather than their corner office that they’re any less capable of handling your bankruptcy case than any other lawyer.
But, it’s also important that you research any virtual bankruptcy lawyer as extensively as you’re researching other lawyers you may be considering. Because just like with any other lawyer, a virtual bankruptcy lawyer may be who’s right for you, but that’s not necessarily the case.
Of course, virtual bankruptcy lawyers can be found virtually – online. But what if you want to speak to other lawyers as well? (And you really should!) Where do you start looking for a good bankruptcy lawyer? We say... you've already found one!
