You have options — know them and use them

We have extensive experience with all three major kinds of federal bankruptcies.  We can help you decide which is the best course of action for you.

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy is usually best for individuals facing extreme indebtedness and unsecured debt or for businesses that are closing.  A Chapter 7 bankruptcy can result in many debts being discharged, or eliminated, entirely for individuals.
  • Chapter 11 bankruptcy assists companies and individuals that need to reorganize their finances while continuing to operate.  Our lawyers can help you and your creditors agree to a fair repayment plan, and can make your creditors abide by that plan.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy helps you get caught up on past due house payments.  It is also helpful in restructuring car loans, tax debt, and credit card and medical debt, so that you can get caught up with your debts over a three to five year period.

Our attorneys can also gain an Automatic Stay, whereby the Bankruptcy Court orders creditors to halt collection activities, foreclosure or repossession proceedings against you.

In the event of litigation, our experienced trial attorneys can represent you in disputes over lien priority and debt discharge.  We can also help you appeal decisions. We have successfully handled bankruptcy litigation in the Bankruptcy Courts in Dallas and Fort Worth, TX and appeals in the Federal District Courts and in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

We are one of the few small law firms in the Metroplex that represent creditors as well as debtors.  Thoroughly understanding both sides of an issue from the perspectives of debtors and creditors is crucial to effective representation.
