The cost of hiring a bankruptcy attorney will depend on a number of factors, including the attorney's hourly rate, the complexity of your case, and where you live. In general, you can expect to pay anywhere from $750.00 to $900.00 for a bankruptcy attorney. Some attorneys may charge a flat fee for their services, while others may charge an hourly rate. Some attorneys say they offer a "$0 down" payment plan but beware as your final cost can be thousands of dollars. All lawyers do the exact same work so do not overpay!
It is a good idea to shop around and get quotes from several different attorneys before making a decision. You should also be sure to ask about any additional costs, such as the cost of credit counseling or the cost of filing fees.
