There are dramatic differences in the way bankruptcy attorneys handle cases. So, there are some important questions you should ask before retaining a lawyer:
Is the Quoted Bankruptcy Price “All-Inclusive?”
Steffens Law Office prides itself on being an all-inclusive bankruptcy service with no hidden fees. Our fee includes all of the material you need to get your bankruptcy filed including 3 credit reports, 2 credit counseling courses and the bankruptcy filing fee.
Are All Fees Required “Upfront?”
Many firms require that you pay all fees, before your case filing. At Steffens Law Office, we offer a number of payment options to get you on file fast! Here are two of them:
File Now, Pay Later
You can file your bankruptcy for $335 down with the promise to pay $1,380 ($345 for 4 months) after the bankruptcy is filed. Options for collateral to support this promise include:
- A vehicle with no existing loan worth at least $1,000
- Other equipment (a trailer, boat, tools, etc)
- Your tax refund
- Your wage garnishment refund. If a creditor has garnished over $600 from you in the 90 days before filing bankruptcy, you may be entitled to a refund!
Fresh Start for $100 Down
If you make $2,000 or more per month, you may qualify to file your bankruptcy for only $100 down! You commit to pay at least $175 per month after the bankruptcy is filed until the amount is paid off (up to 12 months to pay).
How Do They Collect Information?
At some bankruptcy offices, you’re required to fill out long questionnaires and complete your own bankruptcy forms. At Steffens Law Office, we fill out all of the paperwork for you as part of our fee. All you have to do is send us your information and we do the rest for you.
In addition, we can do everything over the phone, through email, or by fax. You don’t have to worry about coming into the office and/or taking any time off of work.
How Many Google Reviews?
While on the surface it may not seem that we are the cheapest bankruptcy attorneys’ office, our all-inclusive bankruptcy services might just end up saving you money down the road. And our hands on staff, and dedication to our clients, showcased in our reviews, may be worth an extra few bucks to ensure you get the help you deserve.
