We assist clients in a variety of complicated matters and protect your rights as a creditor.

With our thorough knowledge of how businesses function, we understand their financial needs and assist in settling disputes between multiple creditors trying to collect money from the same individual.
Preserving Rights as a Creditor
Creditors do not lose all their rights when a debtor files for bankruptcy. Depending on the type of creditor you are, you may have options to preserve your rights or at least mitigate your losses. We handle a variety of matters for creditors, and can also represent you in court, if and when the need for legal action arises. Our attorneys have worked through a variety of situations with clients, including:
- Secured transactions
- Deeds in lieu, short sales, and foreclosures
- Loan modifications (workouts and forbearances)
- Bankruptcy and insolvency-related litigation
