Russell B. Weekes, Esq. has been designated as a debt Relief agency by Congress. We help people file for bankruptcy protection under the Bankruptcy Code.

Affordable Bankruptcy Program

The Affordable Bankruptcy Program involves a two-contract approach to filing chapter 7 bankruptcy. The first step of the Two-Contract Procedure does not contemplate a complete bankruptcy filing or all of the costs and fees associated with a complete bankruptcy case. Only filing the bare essential (“Bare Bones”) documents to get a bankruptcy case will be filed with the bankruptcy court and the court filing fee will not be paid in full.

After the Bare Bones are filed with the court, you will be required to sign a second engagement agreement and authorization for automatic withdraw to engage the firm to complete the bankruptcy case. You will also sign an acknowledgement of the following:

  1. The Firm has made you aware of other potential ways to pay for attorney’s fees and costs other than through the Two-Contract option. Alternative options include client paying the Firm in full prior to filing either by installments, or in one lump sum, which client understands would cost less than the cost of the Two-Contract Procedure;
  2. After filing of the emergency Petition under the Two-Contract Procedure, you have the following three options for post-petition legal services:
    1. You can complete your case pro se;
    2. You can hire another bankruptcy attorney to complete the case; or
    3. You can hire the Firm to complete the case;
  3. If you do not hire the Firm to complete the post-petition legal services necessary to complete the case, you must do the following to complete the case or the case may be dismissed without a discharge:
    1. Pay the court filing fees by the dates shown on the Application To Pay Court Filing Fees in Installments;
    2. File the completed statements, schedules and related documents with the court within 14 days of filing the emergency petition, including without limitation Schedules A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J, Statement of Financial Affairs, and Chapter 7 Statement of Intention. These form can be found at http://www.uscourts.gov/forms/bankruptcy-forms;
    3. Provide pay advises for the sixty (60) day period immediately before filing the case to the Chapter 7 Trustee within 45 days of the filing of the emergency petition;
    4. Provide the Bankruptcy Trustee with copies of your most recently-filed state and federal tax returns, account statements for each account open that includes the date on which your case was filed, and any other documents requested or required by the Bankruptcy Trustee and/or Court.
  4. If you do not hire the Firm for post-petition services the Firm, Pursuant to Rule 2091-1 of the Local Rules of Practice of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Utah (the “Local Rules”), the Firm may file a motion with the Court to withdraw as counsel, but will remain as attorney of record and is obligated to continue to represent you in all respects until such time when the case is closed, dismissed or the Court enters an Order authorizing the Firm to withdraw from the Case.
  5. You have had the opportunity to ask questions about the Two-Contract Procedure and obtain answers to those questions before signing this Disclosure, and you do so consciously, freely, and without duress.

I want to thank you for assisting me through this difficult times of going through bankruptcy. I was at the hearing today. Mr. Weekes was there for me. I was scared, but he re-assured me. It went on smoothly. There was a time I became emotional, and started to sob quietly, and looked sad. I want to thank you again kindly.

Aaron M.

If you’ve gotta go through the mess of financial bankruptcy, these guys are the best. My attorney as well as all of the paralegals and staff made going through hell much easier than I could have ever asked. Any questions I had they responded to immediately. They were always timely and gave me great legal advise. They aren’t the cheapest option, but the payment plans provided were unbeatable.

Justin T.

Great service. They answered all of my questions and made me free comfortable. The staff and attorneys are knowledgeable.

Annon Y.
Bankruptcy Client

I am extremely happy with [Weekes] Law. First, no one ever wants to be in a position to have to file for bankruptcy, but if you do, you need someone who knows what they are doing, and will keep you informed. I was very nervous that I wouldn’t pick the right lawyer, or we would end up with someone who just wanted to get paid, and left us hanging. Our lawyer has been AMAZING. He is always fast to respond to any of my questions, and is very good at making sure you understand what is happening, and that you are comfortable with the process.

A Satisfied Client

My experience was unlike all of the stories one hears of attorneys. [Russell] and his team were absolutely spot on with their communication, follow-up, understanding and ultimately the results. They were aware of my budget and worked hard to keep me there.

I am truly appreciative of there complete caring and handling of my situation.

Adam J.

Weekes Law was professional, helpful, and easy to work with. They kept us informed on what was going on and helped us to make sure we understood what was being done and what was expected of us. We were glad we chose them!


I highly recommend [Russell Weekes]. Filing Bankruptcy isn’t fun for anyone, and these guys were there for me every step of the way. I always got quick responses, they answered every question and put me at ease. I am extremely happy I chose them!

The Perrys

Wonderful Attorney in [Russell Weekes]. Just what we were looking for in a Family Trust. Very knowledgeable, trustworthy, dependable, smart and kind. Recommend him or this law firm to everyone.

Jeffery L.
Family Law Client

I want to take a moment and tell you about [Weekes Law] – I will try to keep it short. I have learned that when you have to choose an attorney to fight for you and your child’s life in court, you should review the prior successes of the attorney. But honestly, not only did I need an aggressive pit-bull type of attorney, I also needed an attorney with a kind heart, someone that could handle an over-aggressive ex and also be caring to me. Weekes Law has a caring family law attorney and also an aggressive advocate in court. I highly recommend [Weekes Law] and all of their professional staff (I’ve spoken with all of them over this child custody dispute and divorce mess). When it’s your turn to have to fight in West Jordan or Salt Lake (I’ve been in both courts) you better make sure [Weekes Law] is on your side. If he’s on the other side – look out!

Elise J.
Criminal Law Client

My experience with [Weekes Law] was the most painless of all the many horrible things that a DUI charge will bring with it. The reason I say it was painless was because he knows exactly what he is doing. You know once you talk to him that this isn’t his first rodeo. [My attorney] has confidence in what he is doing witch really helped me during this hard time. This was not the case with other lawyers that I talked to. They told me things that I wanted to hear to try to sell me. That just made my situation worse and lengthened the process and cost. I had some priors so this wasn’t a simple case, but after hiring Mr. Rush he got everything worked out and he found flaws in the prosecution’s case against me. He found their mistakes and their missing information which made all the difference. Other lawyers don’t even read the reports but [My attorney] knew all the details. So, if you have criminal case, I give you my testimonial that he is professional, ethical, smart, and has a good team working with him and you never find yourself trying to track him down for stuff. I can’t tell you how happy I am. Thanks!!!”

Kermit R.

I like these guys, they worked as a team to get my lawsuit resolved. As far as my divorce and child custody case, they know their stuff. I really wanted to settle quickly. It wasn’t as fast as I wanted, but it got done and I am so much happier for it.
