We charge a basic Bankruptcy fee of $1206.00, INCLUDING ALL COURT COSTS, for a personal Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. A $100 discount will apply for single filers who are below median income and have fewer than 20 creditors. Payment plans are available since many of our clients are unable to pay the entire fee up front. The Flat Fee for Chapter 13 bankruptcy is established by the Bankruptcy Court in the Eastern District of Missouri. Most of the fee is paid over time through the debtor's chapter 13 payments rather than up-front. The total fee over the entire plan period may not exceed $4000.00 without fee application and court order. The attorney's fee in a Chapter 13 is an administrative expense and (to a great degree) is paid at the expense of the creditors. The fee covers all legal services through the conclusion of the case. A chapter 13 is a reorganization where you can adjust your debts, keep your property, and avoid foreclosures and repossessions. A chapter 13 can also be used to pay Debts to the IRS or other taxing authorities over time and avoid some interest and penalties. A chapter 13 plan lasts between 36 and 60 months, dependent upon your situation. Most chapter 13 debtors pay only a fraction of their actual debt. Divorce and Family law cases are usually handled on an hourly basis. For uncontested divorce I will quote a flat fee, if requested. NOTE: MOST UNCONTESTED DIVORCE CASES CAN NOW BE HANDLED WITHOUT A COURT APPEARANCE. Fees for DWI and alcohol related traffic offenses and suspensions are determined on a case by case basis, depending on the complexity of the case and other factors.
Our hourly rate is $175.00 for most matters.
9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Mon - Friday. Other hours by appointment.
