Bankruptcy

In times of financial distress it is critical to seek the advice of counsel with a practical and insightful approach to bankruptcy and insolvency. The bankruptcy lawyers at Gallet Dreyer & Berkey, LLP have the experience and skill to be creative and pragmatic when dealing with matters leading up to a bankruptcy filing, following commencement of a case, and in exploring non-bankruptcy alternatives.
 
When having difficulty collecting bills or paying them, businesses and consumers require legal advice that is both timely and constructive.  People who delay consulting bankruptcy counsel commonly miss opportunities to preserve assets that they otherwise will lose and file for bankruptcy at inappropriate times.  The lesson is clear.  When considering seeking legal advice about bankruptcy, obtaining guidance sooner is better than later.
 
Our attorneys are available to help when:  
 
Debtors need bankruptcy relief to prevent foreclosure or the loss of other assets that may be protected in bankruptcy cases filed under chapters 7, 11 and 13 of the Bankruptcy Code.
 
Creditors seek to protect their claims after the commencement of bankruptcy proceedings.
 
Interested Parties including landlords, lenders, suppliers, spouses, employees, officers, directors or prior owners of the Debtor need to commence or defend adversary proceedings or move to modify the automatic stay to pursue claims in other courts.
 
Sellers and Purchasers seek to consummate Title 11 §363 sales of the Debtor’s assets.
 
When bankruptcy is not an option, attorneys at Gallet Dreyer & Berkey, LLP are available to i) negotiate workout agreements; ii) commence and defend civil litigation or to defend criminal cases filed in federal or state court; and iii) propose and implement possible asset protection alternatives.
