Your First Step

To a Fresh Start

ITEMS NEEDED FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT

checklistConsultation Appointment
Your first meeting with our firm is a free consultation with an experienced attorney. This is a 30 to 60 minute informal meeting where we will discuss your specific situation and answer any general questions you may have. It is our policy to not accept any money at this first meeting. All discussions are confidential, relaxed, and there is no cost or commitment on your end.

Intake Appointment
Once you are committed to going forward, the second meeting we schedule is an “Intake” appointment with one of our attorneys. An intake appointment takes an average of two hours. At this meeting, we obtain a much more detailed picture of your specific situation and obtain a clearer understanding of the appropriate path for you. It is at this time that we are better prepared to give you a clear direction on whether bankruptcy is indeed in your best interest, what your fees will be, and exactly what you can expect going forward with your case.

Signing Appointment
Once you have provided us with the additional documents we have requested and paid your fees, we then schedule a signing appointment. This is a one hour appointment with one of our attorneys where we carefully go over the documents we have prepared with you and make any changes that might be necessary. Once signed, we electronically file your documents that day. Your Fresh Start becomes official the day we file your case!
