Over the years of my adult life, I have needed an attorney for many reasons. While I have never needed a New Orleans bankruptcy attorney, I have looked for one in Georgia. We are looking at the possibility of filing bankruptcy in the next few months.
The first time I needed an attorney was when I got divorced for the first time. I was kind of young and dumb, and agreed to use the same attorney that my husband was using. Because my husband was the one paying for the services, he came out better in the divorce than I did. When I went to an attorney for my second divorce, I made sure I paid them myself, and that they were working for me. I never made that mistake again.
Next, my current husband, to whom I have been married for twenty years now, was involved in a horrible auto accident. He was in the hospital for 15 days, and had five broken ribs, a concussion, two ruptured discs in his neck, and a broken hip. He was not able to work for more than two years because of his injuries. We retained an attorney to file a lawsuit against the company that employed the man driving their company truck who hit my husband’s car. The attorney we had was very good at accident claims, and we were awarded a very good settlement from the company’s insurance company after about two and a half years.
Another time we hired an attorney was when my daughter was twenty one years old. My husband wanted to adopt her, because she really needed a Dad and he was always there for her. She wanted to be adopted by him, too. So, we hired a family law attorney to handle that job for us. She had to advertise the intention of my husband and daughter to get adopted to each other. At the end of the advertisement period, we had to go to court for an adoption hearing. While it took quite a while for the process to complete, the day we went to court was a very happy day for our family. We were very pleased with the job that the attorney did for us.
We have a couple more legal things coming up where we will have to hire an attorney. We have been asking around to our friends and family to find a good one to handle our business for us.
