Chapter 7 basic attorney fees are set by the attorney; however, they are reviewed by the United States Trustee for reasonableness. The attorneys fee charged by the Perliski Law Group depends on the complexity of the case. Usually for a basic non-business Chapter 7 case, the fee is $1,800, plus court costs of $335.  More complex cases involving the closure of a franchised business, for example, cost between $3,000 – $3,500.
