NC Bankruptcy Lawyer in Charlotte North Carolina for Chapter 7 / Chapter 13

Bankruptcy fees vary and while you may find some lawyers say they have a one size fits all flat fee for bankruptcy, you may find that what is provided is limited.   

I have no standard answer to people who are looking for an attorney based upon fees: I am not the cheapest lawyer in town. I am also not the most expensive.  I try to price a case fairly.  I balance keeping fees down, while still charging enough to provide good service to my clients. Whether it is me or someone else, I do not recommend hiring a lawyer solely based upon fees.

I have been a bankruptcy lawyer for more than 20 years.  Because of the nature of what I do, all my clients are  understandably concerned about money and legal fees. 

Some clients are worse off; some better.  However all pay me, (except for those I take on through charity legal pro bono programs).

Unfortunately I can't work without being paid, as you understand since you couldn't either.

It might be able to cut legal fees if I was willing to cut corners such as careful attention to details,  communication with clients, and education of clients about the process.

I usually set clients up on a payment plan and file after I am paid. In some cases, I can put some or all of my fees into a Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan and be paid over time.

I review fees as part of the consultation since I see part of my job is trying to help clients figure out how to budget to afford a lawyer.

I am often able to advise people how they can save money that they might not see for themselves.

Being unable to pay all the debt doesn't mean that people are unable to pay for a lawyer, especially if they are going to stop paying so many other debts.
