01.Does Your Bankruptcy Attorney Exclusively Practice Bankruptcy Law, or In Other Words, Is Bankruptcy All That They Do?
Consumer bankruptcy is all we do. Period. That means that we know our stuff -- better than those attorneys that split their time between other practice areas. But that doesn't mean that aren't committed to finding the best solution for your needs. Quite the contrary. We listen carefully and give you our best recommendation, even if it means something other than bankruptcy. We do not recommend any service unless we believe that is the best solution for YOU. We’re about solutions, not billable hours.
02.Does Your Bankruptcy Attorney Handle Both Chapter 7 And Chapter 13 Cases?
We are a full-service Florida bankruptcy firm. This means that we can and do handle BOTH Chapter 7 AND Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases. There are attorneys out there, however, that you must be aware of. These attorneys handle ONLY Chapter 7 cases -- they do not or cannot file Chapter 13 cases, which means that they can only offer very limited advice and/or options to their clients. When you come to The Cohen Law Firm, you'll get the full-range of options made available to you, so you can make the best, most well-informed decision you can.
03.How Many Bankruptcy Cases Has Your Bankruptcy Attorney Filed?
Since 2000, Brian J. Cohen has filed more bankruptcy cases than any other attorney in Broward and Palm Beach counties and on the Treasure Coast. That makes us #1 how it matters most. You don't file more cases than anybody else and not learn a thing or two -- nobody knows bankruptcy law they way we do. Our firm has almost 20 years of experience in practicing Florida bankruptcy law, and we can put that expertise to work for you!
04.Does Your Bankruptcy Attorney Handles All His Own Cases, And Only His Own Case?
We are proud to say that we handle all our own clients! That means if you hire The Cohen Law Firm, you get The Cohen Law Firm -- no ifs, ands, or buts. Beware of the bankruptcy mills, where you're just a number, rather than a real client. With The Cohen Law Firm you get the highly qualified Florida bankruptcy attorney, Brian J. Cohen, who will actually file your case — not a paralegal, not a preparer, not a legal assistant. And you'll be treated with the caring and compassion you deserve throughout the entire process.
I was referred to Brian Cohen by my neighbor who said he was very helpful in handling her bankruptcy. I'm glad I took her advice. My chapter 7 case just finished and I got my discharge papers in the mail yesterday. Everything went just as they said it would, with no problems.
I also want to say that Brian was terrific in my case. He was compassionate and really cared. At my initial consult he took his time and explained all my options, both bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy. He was completely upfront with everything, including the cost, which was very reasonable. I am definitely glad I chose him for my bankruptcy.
