We focus on quality of representation, not quantity. We therefore do not offer free legal advice. We do offer a sliding scale for our services based on financial need.
We charge a $100 non-refundable fee for our initial consultation, due 48 hours before your appointment. By paying this fee you receive the following:
- Review of your financial information
- 45-minute Debt Review Meeting with an attorney by video phone call to discuss your options.
- Written Summary of the Debt Review Meeting and Proposed Debt Plan
If, after the consultation, you and we decide to work together to file your bankruptcy, the $100 will be credited towards our fees and costs for that work. The $100 fee is otherwise non-refundable.
If you cannot afford the $100 fee, please state why you cannot in the box below. We will contact you to discuss your unique situation and any discount that may apply.
An accessible version of this form that works with screen readers is available here.
It is important to note that only an attorney can give you legal advice on whether filing a bankruptcy petition is appropriate for your unique circumstances. “Debt negotiation” services and document preparer services cannot give legal advice.
Notice of Reasonable Accommodation: The above intake form is not usable by screen readers often used by visually impaired persons, but there is an accessible version of the form here. This issue is due to third party vendor software issues that are not within our control to change. We are working to create a solution. In the meantime, if you are visually impaired or you use a screen reader, please identify yourself as such by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 510-832-5001. We will prioritize your intake information first. If you are not visually impaired or do not use a screen reader, we ask that you please reserve this direct contact option for visually impaired persons using screen readers. We respond to all contacts within two business days.
