We Help Creditors
At Mitchell Pollack & Associates, we represent creditors in debt collection matters. Debtors are protected by various laws, including portions of the Bankruptcy Code — and many use these protections to avoid responsibility for their debts. In the mean time, creditors are left trying to collect debt rightly owed, after a debtor has flied bankruptcy.
Our lawyers use a variety of means to help creditors seek payment. Some of these options are:
- Deny debtor discharge
- Nondischargeability complaints
- Defend against a preference action
- File a proof of claim
- File for relief from automatic stay
Creditors do have rights in bankruptcy, even though many choose to take a passive stance. As bankruptcy attorneys, we understand the laws that affect both debtors and creditors. We use this information to help creditors with business bankruptcy issues involving:
- Chapter 7 bankruptcy — Liquidation bankruptcy
- Chapter 13 bankruptcy — Reorganization bankruptcy
- Chapter 11 bankruptcy — Business bankruptcy
We are familiar with the various techniques available to creditors whose debtors have filed for bankruptcy protection. We will take the time to understand your situation, and assess what options may be available in your case.
