The Firm represents individuals and businesses in bankruptcy cases under Chapters 7, 11 and 13 of the US Bankruptcy Code. We are experienced, not just in the nuts and bolts of preparing petitions to obtain maximum debt relief, but in protecting our clients' rights against creditors and effectively and efficiently obtaining relief for automatic stay and discharge violations. Unlike many bankruptcy lawyers, we are also litigators and will aggressively represent our clients in both defensive and pro-active adversary proceedings and state court proceedings to defend our clients in bankruptcy from predatory creditors.
