Bankruptcy payment plans
Do Toledo bankruptcy attorneys take payment plans?


How can I afford to pay for a bankruptcy. Are bankruptcy payment plans available?    It’s a reasonable question for all prospective debtors to ask their Toledo bankruptcy attorney. Every debtor has a unique case. Discuss with your attorney on ways to work with pre-filing attorney fees and filing fees. Find a bankruptcy attorney whom you are comfortable with and who can answer your questions. Not all law firms are created equal. Here are just 2 of the more questionable notions being advertised in the Toledo bankruptcy market.

  1. A large downtown Toledo law firm (actually based in Northeastern Ohio) pays large sums of money in order to flood the afternoon local tv commercial market with bold statements about “payment plans deferred.”  However, the fine print at the bottom of the commercial restricts the offer to only chapter 13 repayment plans lasting 3-5 years. This same law firm also limits the initial free consult to 15 minutes.
  2. Some less experienced bankruptcy attorneys offer lower attorney fees and/or some version of post filing payment plans, just to get new clients in the door. Reality Check: What happens if the client misses a payment to his or her attorney? Does their attorney become a creditor? This would be an awkward conflict of interest. The potential conflict of interest combined with the lack of bankruptcy experience don’t justify a few monthly payments of around $75.00. Remember, sometimes you get what you pay for. Find the right balance between bankruptcy experience and price: 

Local bankruptcy attorney Scott France has been successfully practicing bankruptcy law for over 12 years and his prices are similar to (sometime below) the local average for the metro Toledo bankruptcy attorney market. You can expect friendly service and personal attention. Client satisfaction is important to us. Our 51 actual client reviews speak for themselves.

Pro bankruptcy attorney
Price does matter, but experience matters more. Find balance.


When was the last time that you searched Google for “Discount Doctors” or “Cheapest Dentist in Toledo” ? The practice of law is complex, experience and price both matter. Find the balance.

Reality Check: Finding the right balance between bankruptcy law experience and a reasonable price will give you the most value. Bottom line, there is some truth in “you get what you pay for.”
