Creditor And Debtor Representation In Bankruptcy Litigation
When can a seemingly standard bankruptcy filing lead to litigation? Creditors or lenders may dispute certain elements of a case. There may be accusations of bankruptcy fraud.
At the Law Offices of Brian A. Barboza, we represent creditors and debtors involved in bankruptcy litigation, collections and other disputes. Given our considerable experience working with both creditors and debtors, we are able to see issues from both sides and provide skilled representation.
Defense For Those Who Are In Debt
We represent clients who have been pursued by creditors or trustees on behalf of creditors. Our attorney will explain the possible outcomes of litigation and seek to negotiate a settlement. When negotiations are unsuccessful, we will defend your rights in court.
When handled poorly, litigation can result in fines, penalties and other liability for the person in debt. We represent the debtor’s best interest in all bankruptcy litigation, including lawsuits, collection proceedings, motions, debt reorganizations and other actions that creditors or trustees pursue. This includes accusations of bankruptcy fraud, which would also have legal ramifications for our clients.
We know that businesses rely on the repayment of obligations, and we can protect their rights in the bankruptcy and collections processes to minimize losses. We have represented banks, mortgage companies, credit unions, asset-based lenders and other business creditors.
Our services include collections litigation and appearances in bankruptcy court on behalf of creditors. We can present the best possible arguments for creditors:
- Seeking relief from an automatic stay
- Requesting or contesting “preferential payments”
- Being sued by debtors for violations of the automatic stay and discharge injunction
