Chapter 7 Attorney Fees
Flexible payment plans available.
The amount of our attorney fees are based upon the complexity of your case and the years of bankruptcy experience and legal knowledge of attorneys.
Our attorney fees for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy vary depending the complexity or relative simplicity of your case. If you are not self-employed (e.g., you are a W2 employee), our attorney fees are typically $1,100-1500, but may be somewhat lower or higher depending upon the amount of your debt, recent financial transactions, and/or your property issues, and whether you are a low income bankruptcy filer living primary on Social Security.
If you are self-employed, our attorney fees are typically $1,500 to $2,500 and your retainer is typically billed hourly against these fees. The most common reason our attorney fees are typically higher for cases where a bankruptcy filer is self-employed is because of the additional work required to determine the income of a person who is self-employed. For individuals who are self-employed, your attorney is required to review all of your last 6-12 months of personal and business bank statements, business expenses, last two years of corporate tax returns, and create an accurate, detailed 12-month Profit and Loss Statement. There may also be additional property issues where a bankruptcy filers is self-employed because of the assets of the business that your bankruptcy attorney will need to evaluate to try to protect all of the business assets. Attorney fees can be significantly higher for complex business cases.
