San Diego Bankruptcy Attorneys

Our Bankruptcy Attorneys Have Experience in All Types of Bankruptcies

Our bankruptcy attorneys are knowledgeable and experienced in navigating the labyrinth of regulations pertaining to all types of bankruptcy. In addition, our attorneys have substantial experience in the prosecution and defense of bankruptcy litigation in all manner of contested matters and adversary proceedings, including but not limited to fraudulent conveyances, preferences, director and officer claims, relief-from-stay motions, and other motions and requests for relief that arise in some bankruptcy cases.  Bankruptcy provides individuals, partnerships, and corporations needed relief when they need a fresh start. Bankruptcy can be helpful in eliminating the legal obligation to pay many debts, ending wage garnishment, and stopping creditors who are attempting to fraudulently collect in excess of the debts owed by the debtor.

Although bankruptcy is commonly viewed as a quick escape-hatch from difficult and unmanageable debts, declaring bankruptcy cannot cure every financial problem, nor is it the right step for every financial issue. Each financial situation is different and there is no one formula for deciding if and when bankruptcy is the best choice.

The bankruptcy process cannot eliminate certain debts. Secured creditors or debts singled out by bankruptcy law for special treatment such as child support, alimony, court restitution orders, criminal fines, and some taxes and student loans my not be dischargeable.
