We handle every aspect of these cases, from personally representing our clients in adversary proceedings to negotiating with creditors to create effective plans reorganization plans.
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: You may have heard of Chapter 7 bankruptcy’s often being referred to as a “liquidation” or “straight” bankruptcy. Chapter 7 allows debtors to liquidate specific assets in order to pay off debts. It may also allow you to discharge debts from older taxes.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: Chapter 13 bankruptcy requires that the client must be working or have a consistent source of income, in order to have the court approve of your repayment plan. Chapter 13 bankruptcy entails a court-supervised repayment plan, through which the client may consolidate their debts over a 3-5 year period.
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy: Chapter 11 is used by businesses in restructuring their debts to continue operations. Individuals who file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy are unable to file for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 because their debts and/or income surpass the allowable limits.
