Denver bankruptcy attorney Robin Hunt has the help you need at a price you can afford. For twenty-eight years, I have helped Colorado individuals and small businesses with debt relief under chapter 7 and chapter 13 of the Bankruptcy Code.
If you are eligible for low-fee bankruptcy assistance, attorney’s fees are capped at $700 for the most basic requirements of a no-asset chapter 7 case:
➢ Pre-petition bankruptcy analysis and assistance to make sure your case is a simple bankruptcy;
➢ Preparation of one draft of the official bankruptcy forms for your review and revision;
➢ Filing of the chapter 7 petition and supporting documents with the court;
➢ Preparation for the meeting of creditors, including assistance with documents that must be given to the bankruptcy trustee;
➢ Appearance with you at the first scheduled meeting of creditors (341 meeting); and
➢ Updates by e-mail of documents filed with the court in your case.
See income criteria attached and primary qualifications below. You won’t pay more if we can keep it that simple.
If you have more significant income or assets, or other complicating circumstances, you may benefit from pre-bankruptcy advice and additional assistance available under a different fee arrangement determined on a case-by-case basis. Because federal court rules restrict an attorney from "unbundling" bankruptcy services, attorney’s fees are higher when additional services are necessary or there are complicating circumstances, including any of the following: pre-bankruptcy planning; another bankruptcy pending within last year; unfiled tax returns; current or former business; recent or anticipated litigation, including claims for personal injury, property damage or discrimination; divorce or domestic support issues; judicial liens on residence; assets available to pay creditors; post-petition amendment of forms; or dischargeability issues.

 Primary Qualifications for Low Fee Bankruptcy Assistance:
(a) Household income within 12 months before and after filing no more than 50% of the Colorado Median Household Income.
(b) “No asset” chapter 7 bankruptcy case in which the value of non-exempt assets is less than a bankruptcy trustee wants to liquidate and use to pay debts. See COBankruptcyLaw.info/xem/ colorado-bankruptcy-exemp tions-at-a-glance.
(c) Individual who resides in the Denver 341-meeting-of-creditors region* (includes jointly filing spouses). (The Denver 341-meeting-of-creditors region includes the following counties: Denver, Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Cheyenne, Clear Creek, Douglas, Elbert, Gilpin, Grand, Jackson, Jefferson, Kit Carson, Lake, Lincoln, Park, Routt, Summit, Washington, and Yuma.)
 State court rules allow lawyers to "unbundle" legal services, but federal court rules restrict unbundling. The bankruptcy court is part of the federal court system. So unbundling or limiting legal services is not allowed in the main bankruptcy case. In general, an attorney cannot help with part of a bankruptcy matter and leave a debtor to do the rest. The federal rules require an attorney to do more, and that means that a bankruptcy attorney must charge more than he or she might if legal services could be limited or unbundled.
