Bankruptcy

We practice in all facets of creditor's rights and bankruptcy law, primarily on behalf of creditors. We represent creditors and court-appointed trustees in Chapter 11 reorganization and Chapter 7 liquidation cases. We provide creditor representation in Chapter 13 wage-earner cases as well.

The firm is skilled in handling contested matters and bankruptcy adversary proceedings, including preference, fraudulent conveyance, relief from automatic stay, turnover actions and other controversies arising within proceedings under the Bankruptcy Code. We regularly provide the following services:
