Chapter 7 - $1300 total
The Law Office of Thomas Denny charges the same flat fee of $962 (attorney's fee) + $338 (court filing fee) to represent either a single individual, a married individual, or a married couple. In Chapter 7, the law requires that your attorney's fees be paid in full before your case may be filed. However, upon application to the Court, the $338 filing fee may be financed over 90 days.
Chapter 13 - $1300 down, $1500 in Plan
The Law Office of Thomas Denny charges a flat fee of $2500 (attorney's fee) + $313 (court filing fee) to represent a single individual, a married individual, or a married couple. Unlike Chapter 7, Chapter 13 attorneys are permitted to finance all or part their fees. At the Law Office of Thomas Denny, we generally ask for $1300 down ($987 attorney's fee + $313 filing fee), with the balance to be included in the plan.
Motions to Avoid Liens - $200
In Chapter 7 cases, if you own real estate and have judgment liens against it, although the underlying debt may be discharged, additional action will be required by your attorney to avoid (or 'remove') the security lien from your property. Each lien requires a separate motion and hearing. For motions to avoid liens, the Law Office of Thomas Denny charges $200 for one and $350 for multiple motions.
