Roughly how much does it cost for a consultation by an attorney to decide if you should declare bankruptcy?

I called one for a quote and he said it would cost $250 for a one hour consultation. Does that seem too much?

    If you deal with real attorneys-the consultation and or advice from the first meeting should be free. Then if you decide to file it is based on the attorney’s fees.

    Fees vary from city/to city, state-to-state. It depends on the law firm, the attorney, mary variables. There is no “roughly,” it depends on, wherether he works at a law firm, or is a sole practioner. If he works at a law firm, fees vary, depending on the amount of work involved. It also depends, if he is an Associate, fees are less. If he is a partner in the law firm, fees for partners are more costly. If you are concerned, ask friends for referrals.
    If you can’t afford it, call the Law School of one of the Universities in your city, they may help you for free.
    Tell them you can’t afford to pay for the consultation. However, that does sound about right. Fees vary, by
    law firm, across the United States. Law firms will not charge the same fees in every USA city.
