Costs of Bankruptcy

My fee depends on a few things, including your marital status, whether you are self employed, own real estate, and/or are over the median income. The current court filing fee is $335 for a Chapter 7 or $310 for a Chapter 13, and you also need to go through two parts of credit counseling, which is approximately $33.

Affordable Payment Plan

I am one of the few lawyers who will let you stretch your payment to me out over five monthly installments, keeping in mind that I cannot bill you for normal services after a Chapter 7 is filed, so if you need to do the payment plan, I will file your case when I am paid in full. For a quick, free confidential quote of my fees, complete the 60 Second Debt Analysis. Please call me at 763-421-0965 if you would like a more specific fee quote, and a copy of the retainer agreement.

A Chapter 13 is about $1000 more than a Chapter 7. In a Chapter 13, a portion of my fees can usually be paid through your Chapter 13 plan.

Competitive Fees*

My clients are price-sensitive, and my fees are competitive. I charge a flat fee model with a few variations, and can quote you a flat fee and send you a retainer agreement after a phone call or the completion of our 60 Second Debt Analysis. When looking for an attorney, please consider these factors above and beyond the bottom line price. These time-tested adages hold true: First, you get what you pay for, and second, a lawyer knows the value of his or her services. But what I can tell you, is that if you can find an experienced attorney (and I would recommend you find an experienced attorney, whoever it is) with a lower price, I will usually match it upon verification. It is extremely rare that I get asked to do that.
