Knowledge And Experience For All Aspects Of Bankruptcy Law

Bankruptcy law has intricacies and nuances that dictate and define the eligibility requirements and process for different debtors. For example, the primary chapters of the bankruptcy code a client is likely to be faced with are:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy, for individuals and businesses, provides for asset liquidation
  • Chapter 11 bankruptcy, for individuals or businesses, allows for the reorganization of debts and in certain circumstances, liquidation or sales of some or all of the assets of a business or entrepeneur.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy, for individuals only, allows for a plan to pay back debt and if appropriate, avoid foreclosure

Additionally, Chapter 9 bankruptcy encompasses municipalities and Chapter 12 bankruptcy is designed for family farmers or fisherman who are in financial stress. Chapter 15 bankruptcy was created for those with foreign assets and debts.
