Neil Ackerman

I have been an attorney for more than 34 years, focusing on Bankruptcy Law; Debt restructuring, negotiations and workouts; and mortgage modifications.

I have successfully represented numerous individual debtors in Chapters 7, 11 and 13 cases; public corporations and other corporate debtors in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy reorganizations, as well as Creditors' Committees, Investor's Committees, and Bondholders' Committees in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy cases; bankruptcy trustees in numerous Chapter. 7 and 11 cases; defendants in preference, fraudulent conveyance, and other bankruptcy litigation; and banks, municipalities, insurance premium finance companies, the State Insurance Fund, and other secured and unsecured creditors and lessors in Chapters 7, 11, and 13 Bankruptcy cases. I have also successfully represented banks and other secured creditors, and landlords, as well as debtors, in commercial workouts, and unsecured creditors as well as debtors in compositions. I also have extensive experience in state law matters including foreclosures, individual and portfolio real property sales and purchases, replevins, #collection actions, malpractice actions, and breach of fiduciary duty actions under ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code and other applicable state and federal law.

I was the Law Clerk for the Hon. Cecelia Goetz, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge, in 1981-1982; and a member of the Panel of Trustees of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York between 1993 and 2012. I have a 10.0 Superb (highest rating achievable) on Avvo.com; and a 5.0 "AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating" (meaning that I have been ranked, based on the confidential opinions of Judges and other attorneys, as having the highest level of professional excellence, particularly in the areas of legal ability and ethical standards) by the Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings system, which evaluates lawyers and law firms in the United States and Canada.

I was also the editor of "Bankruptcy for Bankers" of the Banking Law Journal between 1999-2000; I have authored 11 articles that were published in the Banking Law Journal, the New York Law Journal, and the Long Island Business News; and I have lectured at many legal seminars on Bankruptcy and Real Estate issues to Attorneys and Trade Associations.

Additionally, I was interviewed twice on television (CNBC and News 12-Long Island), and I have been quoted in Inc. Magazine, and in articles published in New York Newsday.
