Attorney Fees in an Arizona Bankruptcy Case

A reporter outside of a courtroom asked a defendant clad only in a barrel: “Oh, I see your attorney lost the case?” The defendant answered, “No, we won.”

To some, this joke isn’t funny. By repeating it, I don’t mean to imply that all lawyers charge too much. We all know what one well spoken or well-written sentence from an experienced attorney can be worth. I mean, who hasn’t watched a “Perry Mason” episode or two?

I don’t want, however, for my clients to feel like they have to wear a barrel, in order to get positive results. So, in exchange for some important things like experience, individual attention, and hard work, I try to charge a reasonable and honest fee that represents what is necessary to be successful.

I offer flat fee arrangements or hourly arrangements, and many chapter 13 filers are able to pay a relatively small amount in attorney fees to actually file the case.

You are welcome to call and discuss your situation over the phone. I will be able to provide a better idea of what your fees may be after I understand more about your unique set of facts.
