My name is Timothy C. Springer. I am a Fresno Bankruptcy Attorney, with extensive experience filing bankruptcy cases here in Fresno, California. As an acknowledgment of my efforts to competently represent my clients I have a Preeminent 4.5 out of 5 Client Review Rating on Martindale-Hubbell®. As I have often written in many places. you need to hire an EXPERIENCED Fresno Bankruptcy Attorney. (Click here to see examples on, where I, Timothy C. Springer am recognized as a top contributor in answering bankruptcy questions) While I still stand by the basic statement that “EXPERIENCE” in Bankruptcy Law is important, it has come to my attention that maybe that simple statement is not enough. As an example, someone may have years of experience filing the minimal paperwork, but if something goes wrong with your case, do they know how to handle THAT? And THAT is what I mean by “experience”. I want to make sure you are properly educated, and have the proper information to make an informed decision. So, here are a few additional things to look for when shopping for a bankruptcy attorney:

• If you see a site advertising low prices to get your attention, look for what I call “weasel words” like “Starting at” or “From” in fine print near that low price, because if you see those words it is VERY possible that the price will be higher when you get to their office.

• Ask if that low advertised price includes the court filing fee. ($338.00 for Chapter 7, and $313.00 for Chapter 13)

Make sure they are local to Fresno. (Not Los Angeles, or Bay Area)

• Make sure the person you are talking to for advice is an actual licensed attorney, NOT an un-licensed office minion claiming to have “legal experience”. It is okay for an office assistant to take your basic information, (like name and address) to open your file, but if you have a legal question the licensed attorney should be available, and there to answer that question. If not don’t just walk away…RUN. You should INSIST answers to your legal questions come from a licensed attorney.

• After filing many people have further questions about their case, or what things mean at various stages of the process. Ask if you will be charged for phone calls if you later have questions.

• Does that basic low advertised price include the counseling sessions, (there are 2 of them you have to do), or are you going to have to pay extra for those yourself?

• Ask what happens if a creditor objects to your discharge. Will that be that included, or will handling that be extra?

• If you are going to keep a car you are making payments on, will they represent you with the creditor, and appear at the possible hearing to reaffirm the debt, or will you have to go in front of the judge by yourself? If they appear is that included, or will that be extra?

• If a creditor has recorded a judgment lien on your home, what are they going to charge you to remove that lien?

While you want an attorney with extensive experience in bankruptcy, you also want a Fresno Bankruptcy Attorney that will represent you in all aspects of your particular case, and goes the extra mile, to gets RESULTS. While no attorney can guarantee results in all cases, Fresno Attorney at Law, Timothy C. Springer will fight to make sure you come out the best you possibly can in your situation, and has the EXPERIENCE to do so. Click here to see some actual examples of prior results achieved by the Law Office of Timothy C. Springer for real clients to get their hard earned cash returned when it was garnished, or levied.

Do you have more debt than you can handle? Is worry keeping you up at night? Are you afraid to answer the phone because creditors keep calling? Are you afraid that you don’t qualify for bankruptcy in Fresno now that the law has changed?

We can help you, just as we’ve helped over 3000 others who were in your position. Most people who truly need to file for personal bankruptcy do qualify for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy relief.
