The vast majority of our attorney fees are fixed, as in flat fees. But we cannot quote you a fixed lawyer fee until we understand the nature of your problem and have an idea of what the solution will be.
Our initial conference for bankruptcy cases is free. For tax matters we charge $250 per hour to assess your case and advise you about your options and solutions.
We also will undertake unbundled attorney fee arrangements if appropriate.
We do not require full payment up front for bankruptcy matters, but we do require full payment of the lawyer fees when we file the case with the court. Prior to filing the case in bankruptcy court we accept flexible payment plans for the attorney fees.
Tax matters generally require full payment of lawyer fees before we will start working on a mutually agreed solution to your tax problem.
