Do You Know How to Pay Your Lawyer?

It can be costly to file bankruptcy, but the most important thing to look at when faced with filing is the total amount of debt you are facing. Compared to the amount of debt that you can discharge, cancel, and not have to pay, the attorney fees for filing bankruptcy is a small expense.

In most of our cases, we charge reasonable fixed fees, which includes all of the services you may need to complete your Houston bankruptcy case. We find that most people like our fixed fees instead of hourly fees that many lawyers charge. The trouble with hourly fees is that they are based on how long it takes the lawyer to do the work and can have no upper limit.

This system of hourly fees rewards lawyers for being inefficient and slow. Our fixed fees reward us for being efficient and getting your case done quickly. When filing for a chapter 7 case, the fees must be paid in full prior to filing. We understand that may be a huge undertaking, so we welcome payment plans.

You have a variety of ways to pay our firm for fees, including cash, cashier’s check, money order, debit card, or third-party credit card. In a chapter 13 case, our attorney fee can be paid through a payroll deduction or wage order. Business cases and multiple filers are extra.
