Explaining The Consequences Of Bankruptcy
Myers & Myers attorneys anticipate and plan for eventual outcomes. We counsel our clients on bankruptcy timelines and procedures and help our clients understand how the particular bankruptcy affects them. We provide advice and counseling on the automatic freeze implemented on collection activities. Then we take action to protect and preserve our client’s claims.
Protecting Status Of Claims
We carefully review bankruptcy plans and petitions to ensure that our client’s claims are classified correctly and accurately. We also actively monitor cases to be sure our clients are being paid what they are entitled to receive. If a client’s claim is being ignored or mistreated, Myers & Myers will communicate with debtors’ attorneys and trustees and, take all steps necessary to ensure our client’s claims are protected in the proceedings.
Lifting The Stay
Sometimes threats aren’t enough to prompt action, and a client is justified in asking to be removed from the bankruptcy proceedings to resume collections or foreclose on personal or real property. Our attorneys are skilled in obtaining orders to lift the stay through stipulation, default, and hearing.
