Fees

I sincerely believe that parties should know the costs of the litigation that they are getting into. I also believe that there are people who have a barrier to entry into the legal system because of costs (and resource limitations to the legal aid system, who nonetheless are some of the hardest working lawyers I know).

Throughout the duration of my practice I have attempted to find efficiencies to bring down costs of legal work. In order to achieve that we have had to dispense with some of the niceties that is associated with litigation. For example, I will usually text as oppose to using the phone. There is no secretary so I might not be able to respond to a question immediately.

However, we strive to provide efficient and effective representation. I will be at your side throughout the process. I will also be at hearings that you don’t need to go to.

Most cases in our practice area we will take (95 out of 100). However, there may be cases of a nature that we cannot do for the fees we advertise. It is also possible that the case load may be at a time heavy enough that we feel we cannot adequately represent you. We do not deviate from our fees. In those cases we will likely refer them to another qualified counsel.

With that being said this is our fee schedule

:


CHAPTER 7 BANKRUPTCY

$250.00 – at the time of signing.

$335.00 – court costs. If the client has the ability to pay the cost at signing, it should be at signing. If not we typically enter into an installment plan with the court (usually 112 the first month, 112 the second month, and 111 the third month)

$250.00 – 30 days after discharge

note – there are two courses that occur in a bankruptcy. In 2016 the costs of the recommended company www.debtorcc.org was $14.95 for the first course and $9.95 for the second course.

CHAPTER 13 BANKRUPTCY

$250.00 – at the time of the signing.

$310.00 – court costs. If the client has the ability to pay the cost at the signing they should. An installment plan is available (103 first month, 103 second month, 104 third month), but it is not advised due to the additional requirement of plan payments.

$500-1500 plan payment – if the plan is confirmed by the court, the trustee will make a plan payment to the firm that is equal to this amount over the life the plan. If the case is dismissed, you do not owe this amount. The different in the plan payment depends on complexity and the financial possibility of succeeding given the plan payment requested.
