Attorney John Sadler

Attorney John Sadler is a senior court attorney and supervising attorney at Geraci Law. He earned his Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice & Sociology and JD from Indiana University. In his spare time, he enjoys camping, cycling and other outdoor activities.

He is a board member of a small non-profit cycling organization focused on raising money through cycling events for cancer research. He has extensive knowledge of real estate and bankruptcy and supervises real estate issues in Indiana.

In 2017, Attorney Sadler successfully won an adversary proceeding for his client. His client’s car was totaled and the client received an insurance check. The creditor filed a suit alleging Attorney Sadler’s client intentionally did not fix the vehicle and the debt owed should not be eliminated in his Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

The creditor claimed the client had a responsibility to repair the totaled vehicle. Ultimately Attorney Sadler defended his client and got the adversary dismissed. He saved his client close to $10,000!

Chapter 10-What is the Real Price Difference Between Bankruptcy Lawyers?

An excerpt from Attorney Peter Francis Geraci’s “The Complete Book on Bankruptcy.” Learn more about misconceptions about bankruptcy!

You may be thinking about bankruptcy. You may have called a couple of law firms. Geraci Law can help you. Below is an excerpt from Attorney Peter Francis Geraci’s Complete Book on Bankruptcy about the REAL price difference between bankruptcy attorneys.

From Chapter 10 – What is the Real Price Difference Between Bankruptcy Lawyers?

I have found that there is very little difference in attorney’s fees. You can’t save more than a couple hundred dollars between lawyers’ fees for the same type of case. Some people like cheap doctors, and some people like cheap food. Some people pick attorneys by a $100 difference in price, not realizing that one deal your attorney makes can save or cost you thousands.

So, the cheapest lawyer in town is not necessarily the best. In other words, go for experience, not price, because there is not much difference in fees for consumer bankruptcies, but there is a big difference in the quality of the advice and service.

For instance, let’s say that 5 years later, a bill collector calls and says you left him off your petition, and he wants to be paid. Will you be able to call your attorney who did the Chapter 7, for advice, or will the telephone be disconnected? If it is Geraci Law, yes you can. 7 am to 7 pm and Saturdays until 1 PM. All your records are electronic. No voice mail either.

Usually, Chapter 7 fees can be paid in installments of as low as $100 a month. Chapter 13 Plans including attorney fees are as low as $95 biweekly. If you can’t afford $100 or $200 a month, you may have to ask friends or family to help you out.

In my opinion, anyone “shopping for fees” for a bankruptcy attorney, is not thinking clearly. If you can clear $10,000 in debt, tax free for $1500, it is a bargain. 10 payments of $150 or even $200 is a bargain.

Chapter 13 cases are even more of a bargain. In almost every state, the attorney fee is exactly the same. Most Chapter 13 cases get filed “no money down”, because it’s a repayment plan. Your attorney gets paid from your Chapter 13 payment, which takes care of attorney fees and all debt. Your Chapter 13 payment could be as low as $95 bi-weekly, or more depending on what debt you are paying back.

Geraci Law represents people on Social Security with low income, and people making over $100,000 a year. Anyone quoting the same fee for any case, on the phone, may be engaging in “bait and switch” tactics. But, if you are really were just looking for the cheapest lawyer in town, sadly for you, there are some poor lawyers at the bottom of their career that will work for free. You kind of get what you pay for.

Geraci Law is the largest filer of bankruptcies in Illinois Indiana and Wisconsin, and you will generally find that the largest law firms probably have the happiest clients, and about the same fees, when you get done, as the all-by-myself attorneys.

Lawyers that claim to be “cheap” can often end up costing you more! Beware of “cheap fee quotes on the phone”

In most Chapter 13 cases, you are saving a lot of money on interest, so the cost is less than paying the creditors at their contract rate of interest. However, Chapter 7 cases are usually cheaper than Chapter 13 cases in terms of total cost. Many “cheap” lawyers don’t know the difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, so if you go there, you won’t know either.

Reviews from Geraci Law Clients!

Reviews from PFG Geraci Law Clients 

Below are REAL reviews from Geraci Law clients.

For Attorney Sharon Hunt, “Finding yourself in a position where you’re 25 years old, in over your head in CC debt and recently unemployed was, needless to say, stressful and embarrassing. When I started considering my options-bankruptcy felt scary and like an option that could ruin my future. When I made the decision to move forward with this option. I looked into who I felt would make me feel taken care of. Peter Geraci and the firm represented themselves in such a way that I felt comfortable going in for my consultation and after speaking with Attorney Jonathan Parker I knew I was in good hands. He was kind, professional and direct. He made sure I understood all of the options and the process. I’m currently waiting to have my meeting of creditors and feel confident that Geraci Law has done everything to make this go as smoothly as possible and all taken care of.  Thank you Geraci Law & team!”

For Attorney Joseph Blaha, “Very helpful very informative 5 stars to GERACI and 5 stars to our attorney JOSEPH BLAHA he truly is one of kind. He answered all of my questions to the up most level of professionalism. Even with my children present, he was patience understanding of me and my wife situation. Even when my wife left to go get our other daughter. He explained all the forums to her as well. So if you are ever in need of help with a chapter 7 or 13 I recommend Joseph Blaha at Geraci!”

For Attorney Mark Levine, “Great staff. Mark Levine was knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way, and helped us navigate a number of potential roadblocks with ease. If you’re buried in debt and need help, we would definitely recommend consulting Geraci Law.”

For Attorney Lizette Villegas, “I had a great experience with Geraci Law and attorney Liz. I was extremely nervous and had a feeling of shame coming into the office, but after meeting with Liz I felt so much better, relieved, and felt back to normal. Liz also took away that feeling of embarrassment and shame. I am very excited for this new start that my attorney and Geraci Law have given me. Liz made this so much easier!”

For Attorney Shera Bucchianeri, “Our experience with frank has been great he was very helpful with the beginning of our Bankruptcy process now we have been helped by Shera Bucchianeri and omg she is fantastic thank you so much for your help. ”

For Attorney Scott Greenwood, “I have been through the process of a bankruptcy in the pass with another firm, was not a good outcome! Upon accessing Geraci Law Firm I had the impression of a very professional firm. Things were explained and very clear as the next steps in the process. This made me feel very comfortable and ensured that I had come to the right place! Scott Greenwood was very professional and nice during each of my visits to the firm. Once again thank for making feel at ease during a stressful time!”
