Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a bankruptcy attorney cost?

Hourly rates for bankruptcy attorneys range from $200-$300. In total, customers spend an average of $999-$1,183 for their services. But because lawyers have different fee structures, you should always ask for an estimate from several bankruptcy attorneys in your area before hiring one.

How do you find a bankruptcy attorney?

You’ll need to conduct a little bit of research to find the best bankruptcy lawyer for your situation. Start by pulling up a list of attorneys near you. Identify a few lawyers who have high ratings, mostly positive customer reviews and the required credentials in your state.

Once you have a list of three to five potential attorneys you can hire, figure out how much they charge. Ask for a free cost estimate (what are their hourly rates?) and ask them to explain their fee schedule. Choose an attorney with a solid track record and reputation, fair pricing and the right credentials.

How do lawyers get paid if they lose a case?

Lawyers typically charge for their time (typically a hourly rate) regardless of whether they win a case. Sometimes, the losing party is ordered to pay the other party’s lawyer fees on top of their own. Some lawyers also work on contingency, meaning they will take a percentage of the awarded amount only if they successfully win the case. 

Before hiring a lawyer, make sure you understand their fee structure.

How do you file bankruptcy without an attorney?

It’s possible to file bankruptcy without a lawyer’s help (which is called “filing pro se”) — but consider the pros and cons before you do. The Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts strongly recommends you get advice from an attorney because of the “long-term financial and legal outcomes.”

When you see Mr. Payne's comment to current and future clients, "get some sleep and call me in the morning". That alone says you are in trusted hands. We are putting the final touches on my case, and Mr. Payne has already done a remarkable job helping me. Earlier in the year when it started to become apparent that bankruptcy was my only option, I approached a "large" firm. You have heard the old clicheque, "bigger is better", well let me tell you that does not apply to them. As I had made the decision to broaden my efforts to find representation I felt comfortable with, the individual I was assigned, informed me that he was not an actual attorney but in his own words, "a helper". I was referred to Thumbtack, and they referred me to Mr. Payne. One of the many qualities I like and admire Mr. Payne for is that he is a family man, and it is because of a reconciliation with my own son that I set out on this adventure to wring in costs, and curtail spending so I could help my son, and again when I learned Mr. Payne was a parent, I knew he understood my intentions because of my son and not because I took the attitude that I did not want to meet my monthly obligations. For those of you who are reading this and thinking, "he paid this guy to say this". Let me explain something to you, anybody could offer me all the money in the world to endorse their products or whatever, BUT, If what they wanted me to say is not the actual truth, there is NO WAY that will happen. So to those of you that have that same "bigger is better" mentality, and feel you have to be represented by a large "reputable" firm, save yourself the time, and call Mr. Payne. The first conversation you have with him, is all the convincing you will need. Oh, and by the way, you will receive top flight representation, at a much more reasonable fee.
