Bankruptcy Attorney Fee Policies
- We start working on your case once $500 has been paid. Since work on your case involves our purchase of a professional credit report, tax transcripts, and your enrollment in debtor education courses we can only outlay these expenses once we have received $500 towards your total fee. To ensure that we can start working on your case right away, you should bring a checkbook to the free consultation.

- Chapter 7 fees must be paid in full before filing.
- $2,000 of the Chapter 13 fee is due before filing. The remainder of your Chapter 13 fee can be paid through your repayment plan.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Attorney Sample Fees Explained
Our bankruptcy attorney charges a flat fee for Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases. The flat fee includes filing the petition, statements, and schedules with the court and representation at the meeting of creditors. Normally, this level of representation is sufficient to achieve a discharge for our clients. In the event that unforeseen circumstances arise that require further representation, a separate hourly fee for our services will be identified in the representation agreement and assessed accordingly. For instance, in the unusual case where we must represent you in an adversarial proceeding, we will bill you by the hour as identified in the representation agreement. This separate hourly fee for unforeseeable representation is typical for a Sacramento bankruptcy attorney. It allows us to maintain lower flat fees valued by the majority of our clients.
