As a Michigan Lawyer based in the Great Lakes Bay Region of Saginaw, Bay City and Midland, who has filed thousands of Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 cases in the United States Bankruptcy Court since 2003, Joshua Reinert strives to ensure the cost of the bankruptcy is fair and reasonable.
A common question is “how much does bankruptcy cost?” An online search of ads will reveal attorneys advertising no money down and quick bankruptcies for as low as $399 or $499. Ever hear the phrase that “if it seems too good to be true, it probably is?” If so, you’ll quickly learn that you get what you pay for with lawyers, as with any business deal in general.
An experienced bankruptcy lawyer is paid to analyze all aspects of the client’s financial situation. A single mistake can be catastrophic and cost you several times what you’re paying to any lawyer.
For example, Joshua Reinert was recently hired by a client who was advised by another lawyer to file a Chapter 7 immediately. Fortunately, she sought out a second opinion. If she had followed the other attorney’s advice, she would not have been able to discharge about $15,000 in tax debts. But, by getting a second opinion from an experienced bankruptcy attorney like Joshua Reinert and following his advice to wait a few more months to file her case she was able to fully discharge these taxes.
It’s not uncommon to see people represented by discount attorneys who have spent little time walking their clients through the full process who are then embarrassed at their meeting of creditors because the bankruptcy is not correctly prepared, or their Chapter 13 plan is a mess. Joshua Reinert regularly receives feedback from his clients after meeting creditors saying they’re so happy they hired him because of the professional manner in which the case was prepared and the professionalism and preparedness of Mr. Reinert at the hearing.
