Creditors Rights & Bankruptcy

Creditors' Rights in Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy was not intended as an avenue to avoid debts through improper transfers or discharges. The attorneys at Myers & Myers, PLLC represent the rights and interests of lenders and other creditors in the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts and U.S. District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Michigan, as well as in other Districts outside of Michigan.

Our lawyers represent creditors in cases involving all chapters of bankruptcy, including Chapter 7, Chapter 13 and Chapter 11. We are recognized for our experience in highly specialized areas of bankruptcy law, such as mortgage avoidance actions, in which we represent lenders or title companies on behalf of lenders.

The following are examples of legal services we provide to creditors:

  • Filing proof of claim on behalf of creditors
