Our attorneys also provide loan modification assistance to people in these circumstances. We will review your financial history and debts and help you determine the best course of action to move forward with negotiations.

Contested Bankruptcy

In most cases, the bankruptcy process enables consumers to achieve significant debt relief without going through litigation. This is as it should be, given the protections afforded to consumers and businesses under federal bankruptcy law.

Sometimes, however, disputes arise involving the trustee appointed by the bankruptcy court to oversee the bankruptcy process. Creditors can raise disputed issues as well. If that happens, litigation may be necessary to resolve the contested issues.
