If your client has filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection you will need to be approved by the bankruptcy court. It is a very fast and easy process and our office will actually file the motion.
While your client is in the Chapter 13 case, the Trustee, and the United States Bankruptcy Court are obligated to monitor their financial affairs. One function of those offices is to approve any attorney retained by the debtor to handle any case not related to the bankruptcy as well as approve any order, settlement, disbursement of funds and attorney fees resulting from any non-bankruptcy case.
In order for you to receive your agreed upon fees while they are in bankruptcy we are required to file an Application for Authority to Employ Attorney with the United States Bankruptcy Court and provide a copy of your attorney-client agreement.
Please complete the form below and provide our office with a copy of your attorney client agreement and a notarized Attorney Verification Form.
Please note that failure to complete the Application for Authority to Employ Attorney may result in your office being denied attorney fees previously agreed to. If you have any questions regarding this application please feel free to call our office and we would happy to assist you.
