About me

As a bankruptcy lawyer in the Brooklyn, New York area, I understand the difficulty many clients may have in paying market rate legal fees for bankruptcy services. I thus I offer LOW FEES (Bankruptcy from $399*) on my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy cases.


*If you pass the means test and a Presumption of Abuse does not Arise, then from a fee of $399 (plus $25 for a credit report) plus the applicable court fees ($299 to file the petition with the court and around $100 for debt counseling services as required by the Court), I will:

(a) Analyze your financial situation and render advice and assistance to you to determine whether to file a petition under the Bankruptcy Code.
(b) Prepare and file your petition, schedules, statement of financial affairs and other documents required by the Court.
(c) Represent you at the 341 Meeting of the Creditors.
(d) Direct you to approved debt counseling services.

The $399 legal fee varies depending upon the complexity of your case. For example, if you make under $40,000 per year and have less than $10,000 debt, the total cost of your bankruptcy including the applicable court fees will be about $900. If you make under $40,000 per year and have between $10,000 and $20,000 in debt, your total cost will be about $1100.

My rates still compete with or are even less than these document preparation services, plus, I DO EVERYTHING FOR YOU.

Get an attorney to help you through the whole complex application process from beginning to end. If you have any questions feel free to give me a call.

We are a Debt Relief Agency. We assist people to file for relief under the Bankruptcy Code.
