If you are overwhelmed by debt, have been sued in court by a creditor or debt collector, or if your home is in foreclosure, you may have performed an on-line search for debt relief or “bankruptcy lawyers near me.” You may have received a letter from an attorney or other type of “law firm” offering to assist you because you have been sued. Being sued may add to your feeling that you are overwhelmed and desperately need help. You may feel that anyone who has taken the time to send you a letter is not only interested in helping you but someone you can safely turn to. The letter may urge you to call a toll-free number and during that call you may be pressured to commit to having that firm represent you without ever having met or talked with an attorney. It can be very tempting to respond to these firms because of this contact. If you perform an on-line search, you may also knowingly or unknowingly come across the web site of an attorney who operates hundreds of miles away. That attorney may or may not have a “local office.” If they, do it is typically only staffed, if at all, with a receptionist and not an attorney you can personally meet, talk with and will be available to serve you. These firms typically advertise that you do not need to personally meet with an attorney and that the process of filing bankruptcy can be handled entirely without meeting with anyone personally. They brag that “no office visit is necessary to file bankruptcy.” Are you comfortable making one of the most important financial decisions of your life without personally meeting with an attorney? Would you entrust your financial future to someone you have never met?
We sincerely hope not.
Before contacting a “law firm” or an attorney that is not based in Southwestern Indiana (often in fact hundreds of miles away) and does not have an office in our area that is staffed by a local attorney you should carefully consider the benefits of working with a local Evansville debt relief law firm, Kinkade & Associates. As a local debt relief law firm based in Evansville Kinkade & Associates is more accessible to you and your family and more readily responsive to your needs. We are here for you. We work and live in the greater Southwestern Indiana and Western Kentucky community. We are members of your community and your neighbor. We care about our community and its members. We work hard for our clients and fellow community members and our convenient office location, staffed by attorneys, allow us to serve you personally. Debt relief is all we do. In addition, we are decidedly different in our approach to the debt relief/bankruptcy work we do.
There are several important ways the approach taken by Kinkade & Associates is different. Let me take a few minutes of your valuable time to share just four of the specific ways that a client’s experience at Kinkade and Associates is different:
(1) At Kinkade & Associates we offer a no-charge initial strategy session with a local Evansville attorney. Some firms that do bankruptcy work handle all initial consultations by telephone or delegate the initial consultation to a non-attorney staff person within the firm. Many out-of-town law firms can only serve its long-distance clients by phone and do not have an office in our community. Even if they have an office, it is often not staffed by an attorney that meets with you and is available to you. Typically, these firms have attorneys that you are unlikely to meet personally. They work and live hundreds of miles away. At Kinkade and Associates we believe that your family’s financial future is simply too important for you to rely only on a phone conversation alone with someone in an office hundreds of miles away or an initial consultation with someone who is not an attorney. We believe that building a personal relationship with you and being available to personally serve you is vitally important. At Kinkade and Associates we believe that you should not make decisions about your family’s financial future based simply on a phone call alone, a conversation with a non-attorney staff person or without personally meeting with the attorney that will be responsible for your case.
(2) The attorneys at Kinkade & Associates are experienced, compassionate, dedicated and committed to our clients. Kinkade & Associates has filed almost 8,000 individual and small business bankruptcies in Southwestern Indiana and Western Kentucky. We do not operate in seven different states with hundreds of store front offices un-staffed by an attorney. We never lose site of the fact that each person or family’s situation is unique, and we treat you that way. Therefore, we recognize that your family deserves personal attention and personalized service, and we use our experience as bankruptcy attorneys to provide personalized service to you. At Kinkade and Associates our service to you begins with a complimentary in-person strategy session with an experienced local attorney. At your free initial in-person strategy session an experienced Kinkade and Associates attorney will talk with you about you and your family’s options for debt relief. At Kinkade and Associates we do not give “one size fits all” advice. Instead, we personalize our advice and lay out a strategy that is personalized to you and your family.
(3) If you hire us to work for you, we guide you through each step of the process that is the best option to allow you and your family to achieve your goal of a fresh financial start. From the initial strategy session through the completion of our services to you the personalized service provided to clients at Kinkade and Associates continues until we have done everything possible to assist you and brought you to the point where you have the opportunity for a fresh financial start. During that process you and your family can rely on Kinkade and Associates to provide to you the thorough and personalized legal representation you and your family deserve. Personalized and complete client service is important to you and an important part of what we do.
(4) Our Pledge to you and your family is straight forward, effective, and sincere. I would invite you to take a few more moments and consider our “Pledge to You,” prominently featured here on our website. We invite you to consider Kinkade & Associates and compare us to other attorneys that simply achieve the bare mechanics of a bankruptcy filing for clients ( please see our “side by side compare/contrast” chart here on our web site). We don’t offer pricing gimmicks, cut corners or provide cut-rate service. We serve you and your needs.
The attorneys at Kinkade & Associates welcome the opportunity to meet with you personally to discuss your situation and provide you with detailed personalized information about the options that are best suited to your family’s circumstances. We are local, we are accessible, and we are available to personally guide you through the process of rebuilding your financial life.
If you have any questions about how we may be of assistance to you and your family, please contact us through our web site or give us a call to schedule your free no obligation initial strategy session with an experienced local bankruptcy attorney.
Thank you for considering Kinkade and Associates.
