Creditors: Bankruptcy Is Not Necessarily the End of Your Right to Collect

If a debtor files for bankruptcy, we can analyze your claim and determine whether some percentage of recovery is available. If litigation is required, our attorneys can protect your rights through negotiation and decisive litigation.

Our Bankruptcy Creditor Services Include:

  • Filing proofs of claim
  • Objecting when unfavorable bankruptcy plans are proposed
  • Moving to except our clients' claims from discharge
  • Moving to vacate collection-related stays and to continue foreclosures, replevin actions, and repossessions
  • Negotiating debt repayment plans and reaffirmations of debt
  • Litigation of preference disputes

Continuing Collections During and After Bankruptcy

With the approval of the bankruptcy court, some creditors can even continue collections during the bankruptcy process. Our representation includes litigation to prove your claim is still collectible and obtain court approval to collect.

Fraud in Bankruptcy

In the case of a debtor who engaged in fraudulent activities regarding the debt in question, the debt may not be allowed discharge in bankruptcy. Such activities include filing false financial statements, failure to disclose all assets, fraudulently conveying property to remove it from their list of assets, and misusing deposits given by a creditor for a particular purpose.

At Marinstein & Marinstein, we are experienced collections law attorneys with the knowledge and resources to mount an effective investigation and expose fraud. If fraud is a possibility in your debtor's bankruptcy, we can discover it and develop a case to prove it.
