Scott M. Hutchinson is a very laid back, transparent lawyer. I had a simple Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and he explained every step and answered every question I had. His prices are very affordable for those who do struggle financially and he's willing to reasonably cooperate with your needs. I highly recommend!

My decision to file a bankruptcy was very stressful. I could not negotiate with creditors on lowering interest rates direct or through their credit counseling. I spoke to 3 different law offices. I felt the most comfortable with Hutchinson Law. Colleen help me through a very difficult time. They made my life easier. Step by step process was not difficult at all. All questions were answered quickly. I am so thankful to Colleen and her staff. Very professional and I would highly recommend this firm.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Chapter 7 bankruptcy fixed fee quote will be provided in writing at the end of the free 30-minute bankruptcy consultation. Each case is unique and some case entail more work than others, so we have to learn what is involved before giving a fee quote. Chapter 13 bankruptcy fees are hourly based, but an estimate will be provided during the initial consultation.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We meet with the new customer at an introductory free 30-minute bankruptcy consultation. At that consultation the lawyer will learn about the customer's unique case and debt problems, ask many questions about the customer's situation, and then go through the customer's bankruptcy options. A written fee quote will be provided along with writing out several different payment options. Once the customer decides to hire us, then a Sign-Up appointment is scheduled. At that appointment, the customer will pay at least $100 to hire the lawyer, a fee agreement will be signed, and all the document preparation for the bankruptcy will begin. Once the customer has gotten the needed documents back to the lawyer, then the lawyer and staff can prepare the 50-60 page bankruptcy petition. A final "signing" appointment will be scheduled for the customer to come in and review and sign his or her bankruptcy petition. Any final changes will be made as customer and our firm review the petition. After the petition is signed, then it will get filed, usually, the same day or with a few days of coming in.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I graduated from the University of Oregon School of Law in 1997 with a doctorate of Jurisprudence. I started law practice in 1997. I starting practicing bankruptcy law in 2000 and have specialized in bankruptcy ever since then. Several times a year I take continuing legal education in bankruptcy law and debtor/creditor issues. Additionally I am part of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) and the Oregon State Bar Debtor-Creditor Section.
