Free Phone Consultation

What should I ask the bankruptcy attorney?
- How much do you charge?
- Do I qualify for chapter 7 bankruptcy?
- Will my property be protected in bankruptcy?
You can ask any questions you have concerning your debt, assets, bankruptcy, credit repair, finances or anything you think may be related to bankruptcy.
Should I be prepared to answer questions?
The attorney may ask the following questions:
- Are you single or married?
- Do you have children or other dependents?
- What is your gross monthly income?
- Do you own real estate anywhere in the world?
- Have you filed bankruptcy in the past 8 years?
How long is the consultation?
Most initial consultations last 10 to 20 minutes. Sometimes when you hire the attorney the consultation will take an additional 10 minutes as the attorney processes your initial payment and orders your credit report. The length varies by the case and difficulty.
How can I hire the attorney?
If you want to hire the attorney after your consultation you can bring a checkbook, cash or money order. (Bankruptcy attorneys are prohibited from taking credit cards). Once your payment is received the attorney will begin working on your case.
How much will my bankruptcy cost?
Everyone considering bankruptcy wants to know how much hiring a bankruptcy attorney will cost, and Sacramento Law Group LLP is happy to review the total cost over the phone. In most cases our attorney will charge $900 for chapter 7 bankruptcy. Complex cases naturally cost more since they require more time.
