We handle both chapter 7 and chapter 13 personal bankruptcies and will assist you in finding the right lawyer for the job if you need a business bankruptcy. The court oversees how much bankruptcy attorneys charge debtors for filing their bankruptcy cases and has even issued an administrative order with suggested reasonable fees to charge. We charge in accordance with the reasonable fee. In many cases we are able to raise the money to pay the fees with suits under the F.D.C.P.A. and similar statutes where the creditor pays the attorney's fees and costs.
Many types of cases do not require attorneys' fees up front. For example, personal injury claims wrongful death, catastrophic medical malpractice, social security disability are all paid out of the money we obtain for you as settlement, i.e. NO ATTORNEYS' FEES UP FRONT.
