Unfortunately, it is not possible to say what the "standard fee" is for bankruptcy cases.  Every case is different.  Different services may be needed, such as motions to avoid liens, negotiating reaffirmation agreements, defending objections, etc..  If a law firm tries to quote you a firm fee over the phone, brace yourself.  It is likely to change as the case is prepared.

In consumer bankruptcy cases, you will find that most experienced firms charge similar fees.  This is particularly true in Chapter 13 cases.  A lawyer that charges dramatically less is doing so for a reason--probably because he or she is inexperienced and trying to build a practice, or has a poor reputation.  Legal services are like anything else.  The cheapest is usually not the best way to go.

 

Most experienced firms also have some type of payment plan.  In Chapter 13 cases, the fee is usually included in the Plan, so attorney fees do not have to be paid up front.

 

Look for an experienced attorney with a good reputation.  You'll likely find that the fee is competitive, and the services much better than a "cut rate" provider.
