Low Flat Fees in Kent
Most attorneys charge by the hour. They ask for a large retainer and keep it in trust, sending you statements from time to time showing the work they have done. They charge for every phone call, office visit or letter sent. Our bankruptcy fees are not like that. We charge a low flat fee from the beginning. You will not get a surprise if you happened to need to call us or have us send a letter to a creditor. We sit down with you at a free consultation and come up with a flat fee depending on how much time we think your case will take. You know exactly how much your case will cost and if you happen to run into trouble with a trustee or a creditor, we can sort it out for you without having to send you an itemized bill that suddenly breaks your budget.
We set you up on an affordable payment plan. You can write post dated checks or give us a debit card number to charge at agreed-upon dates. We are flexible and you can delay a payment or two if needed. Usually we can not file your case until all your fees are paid. However, we can charge half a fee before filing in emergencies if you can show how you will be able to pay us. We can advise you what bills you should keep paying and which ones you can stop paying right away. You will find that you can make installments on your attorneys fees if, for example, you are no longer struggling with credit card payments. We can charge a little less if you can pay us all at once. If you get a friend or relative to pay us, we are happy to accept that but they need to realize we’re fighting for you. You call the shots in your case, not the person who pays your fees. We also must keep the information you give us confidential (unless, of course, we have to disclose it on your bankruptcy forms).
