Whether the client is an individual struggling to make ends meet, a creditor with a significant claim in a bankruptcy case, or a corporation or business in need of Chapter 11 relief or an out-of-court workout with its creditors, we provide competent and compassionate legal assistance, first in quickly evaluating the situation and then in guiding the client through the bankruptcy or workout maze.
For our individual bankruptcy clients, we recognize and address not just the legal issues, but also the emotional toll the client’s financial and personal circumstances often take.
For our creditor clients, we recognize that promptness and efficiency in pursuing claims in bankruptcy cases will lead to the best recovery. By the same token, we do not want our clients to spend good money (paying our fees!) futilely chasing after bad money, and we tell our clients when that outcome is about to befall them. We also represent creditors who have received demands from a bankruptcy trustee or Chapter 11 debtor to return preferential payments the creditor received shortly before the customer’s bankruptcy filing.
And for our corporate and business clients, in need of reorganizations of their financial affairs, we recognize that there is no substitute for experience, knowledge, and just-plain know-how (not to mention hard work) in navigating the complexities of ever-changing bankruptcy laws.
We offer our individual clients free consultations. To us it is important that each client has a prompt and professional analysis of his or her financial picture and an understanding of the available options. Often the bleak future that our clients imagine when they lie awake at 3:00 a.m. is not the future with solutions and possibilities that they hear about during a consultation.
