Our consultation has always been free, and we have never set any formal time limit on it.
Bankruptcy fees are generally a flat fee which is determined at our consultation, which is always free. Those fees are based upon the simplicity or complexity of the individual case, as that will determine how much work is involved.
As mentioned above, most if not all bankruptcy clients usually pay a flat fee; however, when our work does require an hourly fee, it is generally $300 per hour.

As mentioned above, the opportunity to help people in times of stress or need has always had appeal for me. Bankruptcy certainly would fit that bill.
While I certainly wouldn't recommend representing oneself in the Bankruptcy Court, I do sometimes find it helpful if the client has done a little bit of research and thereby understands what I'm talking about a little more clearly than he or she otherwise would.
I will do that on occasion.
We are simply too busy with those clients who are paying for our representation to do this.
I have operated my own practice since I became an attorney .
For better (or worse!), I am a perfectionist. I have always been interested in aviation and am a private pilot. In that environment, attention to detail is essential, with procedures, checklists, etc. You never want to get "behind the aircraft." I approach my work in the same manner.
Our strength is, without a doubt, our personal touch. From the very first inquiry, we take the time to really listen to our clients and reach out. We do NOT simply say let's set up an appointment and we can talk then - we often spend quite a bit of time right on the initial telephone call. Our clients repeatedly tell us that this is why they retained us, that we were the only ones who really listened and who really seemed to care about their situation.Personal interests:
I am a private pilot so my main passion is flying. I also enjoy skiing, travel, and just relaxing.
