Many people decide to file for bankruptcy when they are not able to keep up with their debt payments and creditors continue to harass them. However, bankruptcy attorney fees are always a concern: how does one that is filing for bankruptcy afford to pay the expenses? Our expert bankruptcy attorneys at Skrupa Law Office are here to help.

Calculating Attorney Fees

You can actually file for bankruptcy without an attorney, but we would not recommend it. If you hire Skrupa Law, we can take on all the stress and responsibility that is involved in the bankruptcy process for you. Although attorney fees do differ from one attorney to another, larger firms usually charge the most. You should choose an attorney that does not take shortcuts and looks out for your best interest rather than their own financial gain.

Bankruptcy can be expensive and you may not be sure how you can afford it. Nevertheless, you will want an expert in the event that any issues arise throughout the duration of your case. Remember you are paying the attorney for their services, as well as filing fees. Skrupa Law’s fees are calculated as a flat rate instead of an hourly rate. This works to your benefit as you will pay the same amount no matter how many hours are worked. The good news is your fees can be paid through your Chapter 13 repayment plan. However, filing Chapter 7 fees are a little different. Contact our office for more information on the distinctions between filing Chapter 13 and filing Chapter 7.

An average bankruptcy can cost anywhere from $800 to $2,000. This is determined by location of the attorney’s office and how much experience the attorney has. Our advice is to hire an experienced attorney who is willing to work with you to get you the best rates available.
