It’s important to utilize the services of a qualified bankruptcy attorney who has a proven track record of successfully helping clients eliminate or restructure their debt.

Mr. Pleva has helped hundreds of local clients improve their financial health by declaring Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Attorney and Filing Fees
A question people often ask us is, “How much does bankruptcy cost?” Attorneys usually charge a flat one-time fee for representing a client in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The amount of the fee is based on the complexity of the case. At the Law Offices of Joseph G. Pleva we offer a FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION. During your free consultation we determine what the fee will be. We can come up with an affordable payment plan for paying the balance of the attorney fee. The Bankruptcy Court charges a filing fee of $335 for Chapter 7 and $310 for Chapter 13. Generally this is due at the time of filing the petition, but we can request the court to allow you to pay it in installments over 3-4 months after filing. In some circumstances, the court will waive the filing fee altogether.
