Why are your fees less expensive than other attorneys?
My overhead costs (office rent, equipment costs, labor costs, website, etc.) are low.
Why do you charge more for above median income?
The bankruptcy petition faces more scrutiny and is more complicated to prepare for above-median income clients.
Am I above median income?
Median income is set by the US Trustee and determined based on household size. In Florida, as of November 1, 2011 median income is as follows: Household of 1 -- $40,766; Household of 2 -- $49,729; Household of 3 -- $52,840;
Household of 4 -- $62,742; Household of 5 -- $70,242; Household of 6 -- $77,742; Household of 7 -- $85,242; Household of 8 -- $92,742; Household of 9 -- $100,242; Household of 10 -- $107,742.
Do you actually ever charge the minimum flat fee?
Yes. Most clients are charged the minimum flat fee and nothing more.
Are you an actual bankruptcy attorney?
Yes. I am a licensed in Florida and admitted to the Bankruptcy Court of the Federal Middle District of Florida. This can be verified at the Florida Bar website. My practice is 90% Bankruptcy Law.
How does your payment plan work?
You pay me an initial payment at our first in person conference. I represent you to your creditors from that point. When you pay the full petition fee, I prepare the petition.This way I avoid becoming your creditor.
How do we get started?
Generally, I start with an initial telephone consultation. At the end of the telephone consultation, I quote a price. Then if you want to move forward, we schedule an in-person conference at my office to go over the legal services agreement and your documents and for you to make the first payment. After that I represent you against your creditors until you are paid in full and then about two weeks after that I file your case.
Can you make the calls stop?
After you hire me, you give my phone number to the creditors. For most of my clients this stops all calls and harassment.
