No Money Down image
In many cases my office can file your case for $0 in up front attorney’s fees. So you would pay $400 up front (that includes the court filing fee of $335, the cost to pull your credit report and the cost of paper and postage). To qualify you will need proof of some sort of income and have a bank account. You will have 1 year to pay the balance of attorney’s fees. These fees are on a case by case basis, no official fee quotes can be given until you come to my office for a free consultation. Not everyone will qualify for this option.

I worked with William on an extremely difficult and stressful bankruptcy case. William is terrific! Responsive and caring attorney who got a very bizarre situation resolved for me, was able to work with my mortgage company and get me my life back! Even long after my case was discharged he continues to be there for questions and support to the point where I now consider him a treasured college and dare I say friend. Very knowledgeable in bankruptcy law, super communicative and caring.

My experience with William Waldner was more than excellent - it was fantastic! From my first consultation meeting to the actual hearing, he always made me feel at ease and gave me all the information and tools I needed to feel 100% confident that my case would be a slam dunk. He was attentive and had genuine interest and concern for my individual case, while at the same time managed to be efficient and respond to my questions and concerns very quickly. All of this being said and after much research into other attorneys, his fee was very reasonable. With William's help, I can now focus on my future and I am on track to achieve financial freedom.

I assisted a close friend during her bankruptcy experience and discovered the William Waldner office in midtown Manhattan. Mr Waldner thoroughly explained the bankruptcy process, reviewed options and patiently walked her through the process. He is a highly skilled professional, client focused and accommodated my friend, who is plagued with health problems. We highly recommend William Waldner.
