Is there a minimum of debt I have to have to file bankruptcy in Pennsylvania?

Also do you know of any bankruptcy lawyers in the Western PA area? Basically I went into debt consolidation through a non profit organization. I paid them one monthly payment and they dispersed it to all 3 of my creditors. They have had problems with American Express accepting a proposal, or accepting a proposal then a month later saying no they wanted more than that. So basically they defaulted my account 2 times for this proposal problems and now they want immediate payment of $2,300. I do not have that kind of money. I go to school full time, live it at home, drive a car owned by my mom, and work a part time job. I have tried compromising with them, but they won't budge. And my mom won't bail me out because she feels I need to fix this myself. I know bankruptcy is a major step but I am just trying to look at all of my options. Also if you know of anyone who has gone through a similar situation with American Express let me know. I would love someone to talk to about this.
