About Phoenix Bankruptcy Lawyers

What Can a Phoenix Bankruptcy Lawyer Do for You?
A Phoenix bankruptcy lawyer can review your situation and help you decide whether bankruptcy is your best option. Your lawyer can explain the bankruptcy options for individual consumers (Chapter 7 or Chapter 13) and for businesses, Chapter 7, Chapter 11 or  Chapter 13. There are other newer options as well, which they can explain. Then your lawyer can assist you in identifying the best one for your situation.

You are most likely to navigate the long, complicated path to bankruptcy relief successfully with a lawyer on your side. A lawyer is familiar with the documentation that must be filed with the court and how to prepare it. They can also represent you most effectively in court hearings before bankruptcy court judges. A lawyer can most effectively negotiate with creditors on your behalf. You are going to get the best outcome for your case if you have an experienced lawyer representing you.

How Much Does a Bankruptcy Lawyer Cost?
A Phoenix bankruptcy lawyer may offer different fee options. The options may vary depending on whether you file as a business or as an individual consumer. In both cases, one of the options is paying by the hour for time spent on your case. The hourly fees can range from $100 to $500 an hour or more. If a lawyer charges an hourly fee, they keep careful track of the time they devote to your case and calculate a monthly bill.

Another common option for individual consumer bankruptcies is a flat fee. This fee can range from as little as $700 to as much as $2500.  

You can contact a number of different attorneys and ask them about their fees.  Keep one thing in mind as you shop: fees are not the only factor that should figure into your decision. You want a competitive fee, but you also want an attorney in whom you have confidence.
