What Are My Options for Filing Bankruptcy?
Your available bankruptcy options depend entirely on your circumstances.
At Havkin and Shrago, we work closely with debtors to evaluate their current situation and goals. We offer candid assessments and empower clients with the information they need to decipher their options for meaningful relief and resolution – whether that means exploring out-of-court solutions, filing for relief under the Bankruptcy Code, or litigating key claims in a bankruptcy case.
Because bankruptcy and debt relief cases are highly fact-specific, the best way to determine your options is to speak with an attorney who has experience in this field. Our team at Havkin and Shrago offers a free consultation to help debtors chart their next steps.
Most bankruptcy proceedings are not adversarial. They are processes that allow debtors to repay, reorganize, and address unmanageable debts through a discharge that provides a fresh start.
Sometimes, however, disputes arise that require litigation. When they do, this litigation is conducted much like civil litigation in district court, where discovery is conducted, pretrial proceedings are held, and parties attempt to negotiate a resolution prior to an actual trial. Having a lawyer with real experience litigating in bankruptcy is vital when these issues are on the table.
Havkin and Shrago is a true litigation practice with extensive experience trying complex issues in bankruptcy courts. We work closely with clients to evaluate whether efficient solutions can be reached out of court and ensure they understand when litigation may be necessary.
