Does a consultation cost money?
No your first visit is free. I will be able within a half hour to see if you qualify or have significant issues that may disqualify you from filing.

NO each client has specific issues about their ability to service debt. To some, the amount may not seem great, but if you are getting sued or garnished, even a smaller debt can seem unmanageable.
