Interview Process

The interview process will normally consist of a 30 minute to 2 hour meeting with an attorney / lawyer (Mr. Weber) at our Houston office, and a second 15 to 45 minute meeting with a legal assistant.

The length of the initial meeting with Mr. Weber will vary depending on the type and complexity of the case.

  • For Chapter 7 cases involving mostly consumer debts , the initial meeting will normally last between 30 and 45 minutes.

  • For Chapter 11 (small business) cases, the initial meeting can last anywhere between 2 and 4 hours.

  • For Chapter 13 cases involving mostly consumer debts, the initial meeting will usually last between 45 minutes and 1 1/2 hours.

During the initial interview, Mr. Weber will discuss all aspects of your case, including whether a bankruptcy filing is appropriate, the form of bankruptcy relief which is proper (normally either Chapter 7, 11, 12 or 13), alternatives to bankruptcy, the bankruptcy process, and credit considerations of a bankruptcy filing.

Following the interview with Mr. Weber, you will normally meet with a legal assistant to review some additional bankruptcy paperwork that must be completed in order to properly process your case.
