Bankruptcy FAQs

Is there a charge for a consultation?

We offer a one-hour consultation for consumer-related cases free of charge.

Consultations for business-related matters, nonbankruptcy workout matters, creditor representation and litigation are billed at the consulting attorney's hourly rate. Payment for consultations on nonconsumer matters is expected at the time of the consultation. Should you choose to retain our services for your nonconsumer matter, your consultation payment will be credited toward your retainer.

How much will a bankruptcy cost?

Fees and costs vary and are quoted on a case-by-case basis. A quote, which consists of an initial retainer fee and an estimate of the costs associated with your case, will be provided at the consultation after a review of your circumstances.

Do you accept credit cards as a form of payment?

Due to the nature of our business, we cannot accept credit cards. We accept cash, certified funds, money orders, cashier's checks and personal checks only.

How do I know which option is best for me?

During your consultation, we will thoroughly review your circumstances, discuss your options, explain any questions you may have and give an opinion on your best course of action. Our advice is tailored to meet your goals based upon your unique circumstances.
