Bankruptcy Attorney Profile

Attorney Profile

If you are having financial problems or a home foreclosure and need to talk with an attorney who will take the time to clearly understand your situation and explain your options to you, how do you find the right attorney to help you?

My name is Thomas Pulliam and I limit my practice to credit counseling and bankruptcy law. Not all clients are identical and not all bankruptcy attorneys are the same. Usually the best way to find an attorney is by getting a referral from friends, family or an other attorney you trust but if you cannot get a referral, take the time to compare before hiring someone to help you.

Choosing the right professional:

  • Experience
  • Having the respect of prior clients and other professionals
  • Honesty
  • Getting personal attention from your attorney
  • Having your questions answered and not being rushed during a free consultation
  • Having your calls returned by your attorney
  • Being able to sit down and talk to your attorney when needed at no additional cost
  • Having an attorney who is in Lakeland full time
  • Having an attorney willing to see you after hours
  • Reasonable fees in writing in advance with no hidden cost
