Why Why Choose

The focus of Mathias Law is primarily on debt relief. Debt relief includes bankruptcy, but what type of debt relief might be best for you depends on your situation. The laws are uniform, but your facts and circumstances are unique. For this reason, Mark will listen to you, he needs to know what has happened and why, and he will explain the types of available debt relief and recommend which debt relief type might best solve your situation.

You are encouraged to ask questions. Mark’s greatest value to you is providing information so you can decide what is in your best interest.

Services How Mark Can Help

Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcies are the most frequently used forms of debt relief for consumers. They provide you with different methods to restructure your finances and obtain a fresh start. Chapter 128 is a non-bankruptcy form of debt relief. Which form of debt relief might be best for you will depend on your situation. The following are very basic descriptions of Chapters 7, 13, and 128.

Pricing Fees & Pricing

Legal help is no different than hiring other service professionals (e.g., plumbers, electricians). For this reason, it is important to understand what services you can expect to receive and how much those services will cost. Because you have choices, please ask questions regarding pricing and what you will be receiving in return. 

The first step is a Debt Relief Consultation. This meeting has three purposes.

First, to learn about your situation because everyone's situation is unique. We do not provide cookie cutter, "one size fits all" services.

Second, to educate you about what creditors can do to collect their debts and how this may impact you.

Third, to review what debt relief options are available and which debt relief options may work best for your unique situation, so you can make choices that best fit your situation. 

The Debt Relief Consultation typically lasts about an hour. We charge a $100 fee for the Debt Relief Consultation, which can be paid by check, money order, or cash (no electronic payments). If you hire Mathias Law within 30 days of the Debt Relief Consultation, the $100 fee may be credited towards your matter. Our approach is to know as much as possible on the front end so that there are no surprises or unanticipated issues that cause you to incur more legal expenses and costs. If you cannot keep your scheduled Debt Relief Consultation, please notify us. 

To hire Mathias Law, you will sign a written Contract for Legal Services. This Contract will clearly state whether the matter will be flat fee or charged hourly and it will clearly state the scope of services that will be provided. Before signing the Contract, read it and discuss anything that you do not understand. You should only sign the Contract if you are comfortable with the terms and conditions.

Mathias Law charges either a flat fee or by the hour. Most debt relief matters use the flat fee pricing. Generally, flat fee means you will pay a fixed amount of money in full before your case is filed. However, the flat fee amount will depend on the complexity of your situation. The current hourly rate is $300. Contact Mark today for a Debt Relief Consultation.
