My Fees are Fixed Flat-Fee Rates

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Fixed Flat Fee Rates

TRANSPARENCY IN PRICING:

  • ATTORNEY'S FEES. I charge flat fee rates. They are desinged to match your circumstances.*
    My goal is to make bankruptcy affordable. I want to retire early, BUT NOT BY TAKING THE SHIRT OFF YOUR BACK.
    Instead, I prefer to sue creditors on a client's behalf. That way we can both retire early.
  • COURT COSTS. The chapter 7 filing fee is $335.
  • CREDIT COUNSELING REQUREMENT. You satisfy this requirement yourself and pay the credit counseling agency of your choice directly. One of the credit counseling agencies I recommend charges only $9.95 for each of the two courses. More information about this requirement, including pricing, can be found here: Credit Counseling.
  • CONSOLIDATED CREDIT REPORT. I will pull a bankruptcy specific credit report. The price for an individual credit report is $35. The price for a joint credit report is $55. I will provide you with a copy. This consolidated credit report is necessary because (1) it's one streamlined report from ALL credit bureaus; (2) it contains updated bankruptcy specific information; (3) it has your current credit score; and (4) it has your projected post-bankruptcy credit score.
  • COMMON POST-FILING FEES. There is a $30 bankruptcy court fee for adding creditors AFTER your case has been filed. I charge another $50 dollars for processing and mailing notices of any changes to all parties involved in the case. This fee can easily be avoided by making sure all creditors are included at time of filing. I will not ask you to pay any fees if a creditor was omitted due to a mistake on my part.
