Our Practice Areas


We help individuals and businesses in bankruptcy proceedings of all types and sizes. Our firm was built on our commitment to representing parties in bankruptcy, primarily under Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 13. We are bankruptcy lawyers at heart, and we’re honored to represent parties in financial distress.


We represent individuals and businesses in commercial litigation, including litigation issues arising from bankruptcy and receivership cases. Litigation is usually the last resort for resolving disputes, but we know to draw the line when it has to be drawn. We provide experienced representation when litigation is required, and we play to win.

Creditors' Rights

We enforce the rights of lenders in the collection of personal and commercial loans, and bring suit for money judgment and the recovery of collateral. We also enforce creditors’ rights in bankruptcy through the establishment of claims against the debtor, in securing relief from the bankruptcy stay, and through representing creditors’ committees under Chapter 11.


We have deep experience serving as state court receivers in complex receivership cases, protecting assets for the benefit of creditors, investors, and equity holders. We also represent other receivers, and represent parties to statutory assignments for the benefit of creditors and receivership cases.
