In most cases, we can file a Chapter 7 for as low as $793 in attorney fees.
Unlike our competitors, we don’t “hide” our fees. If you prefer, we will quote your exact price right over the phone (call 702-715-0000). In addition, when you arrive at our office we print out for you a complete fee breakdown.
Full Service Bankruptcy
Free consultation means you always have the option of meeting with Mr. Ballstaedt personally, not a paralegal or legal assistant as you might with one of our competitors. No commitment, and no payment required. Call (702) 715-0000.
If you have an urgent situation (like wage garnishment, pending home foreclosure, or vehicle repossession) we can stop it immediately, even if you don’t have all of the money up front. With only $500 down, we will file your case and allow you to pay the remaining fees in small payments over time.
Full service bankruptcy means that you don’t have to search for all your bills, account numbers, and balances, etc.; and you don’t have to fill out a large stack of paperwork. We gather all that information for you, and we do all the paperwork necessary to complete your case.

Can you afford to pay your bills? If you cannot, you will continue to make late payments, and your credit score will continue to drop.
Credit bureaus consider recent information to be the most important. If your recent credit activity is bad (late payments, a bankruptcy, etc.), then your score will be low. But if you give the bureaus newer and better information by reestablishing credit and paying your bills on time, your score will start to improve regardless of your history.
You need credit to get credit, but this does not mean that you need big credit lines to have 720 credit scores. You can build a great credit score with low lines of credit.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do you charge for bankruptcy?
Will I get the same service at your law firm as other law firms that charge twice as much?
I do hear this question occasionally, and I know I’m prickly but I am always slightly insulted by it, but I understand where my clients are coming from and why they ask this question.
First, as of the writing of this post, we currently do no TV, Radio, Phone-book, or Billboard advertising whereas my two main competitors are pervasive with expensive and persistent TV ads, billboards, radio commercials, and full-page phone book ads everywhere you look. I’m speculating, but it wouldn’t surprise me if their advertising costs exceed their payroll costs. In other words, in order for them to earn the same profits as us, they have to charge much more.
Will I lose my house, car, furniture, or other belongings?
How long will it take for my credit to recover?
When you file bankruptcy in Las Vegas, in theory you surrender everything you own to the bankruptcy trustee. However, the state legislature has decided that there are certain assets that a person should be able to keep even if they are filing bankruptcy. These are called “exemptions.”
In Nevada, you may exempt $15,000 for a car; $12,000 for clothes, household furniture and goods; $5,000 for a wedding ring or other jewelry; $10,000 for work tools, machinery or inventory of a sole proprietorship, $1,000 “wildcard” for anything you choose, $550,000 for a house; $500,000 for a qualified retirement account. In Nevada even some types of stocks are exempt, as well as life insurance proceeds.
So in summary, most often a person who files bankruptcy will lose nothing, unless they have valuable assets that are not exempt. If you are concerned about a particular asset you have, please come in for a consultation.
From my anecdotal observations of our client’s credit scores after bankruptcy, it appears to me that the better your score is going in to the bankruptcy, the more quickly your credit score will recover after the bankruptcy, and vice versa. E.g., I recently met with a client who showed a 700 FICO score immediately before the bankruptcy and when we pulled her credit report only 5 months after filing the bankruptcy she showed a 650 score.
Because credit recovery goes hand-in-hand with
bankruptcy, we’ve discovered 7 steps that will lead to the fastest credit score recovery after bankruptcy. If you take these steps immediately to start rebuilding your credit score after a bankruptcy, you can transform your credit score within 12 to 24 months after your bankruptcy has been discharged. However, you must take these 7 steps. Too many people decide to wipe their hands clean of credit. As time passes, instead of having poor credit, they end up with no credit. Unfortunately, no credit is just as useless as poor credit.
In my opinion the best credit education program to follow is 720CreditScore. We purchase this program in bulk and offer it to all of our clients at no extra charge. After testing the program, we've found without exception that this credit program (7 Steps to a 720 Credit Score) will bring you back to a good or excellent credit score within 2 years after the bankruptcy.
