Brooklyn Bankruptcy Law Firm
Serving homeowners and workers throughout NYC and Long Island
Bankruptcy may seem simple, but it is more complex than it first appears. It is best to consult an attorney before filing. The Brooklyn bankruptcy law firm of Rosenberg, Musso & Weiner, L.L.P. has been serving clients in need of bankruptcy services for over 60 years.
Our Brooklyn bankruptcy law firm can help you take back control of your life through strategic use of the law. We serve clients in a variety of bankruptcy matters. Here are the bankruptcy services we provide:
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
This is referred to as “straight liquidation”. This constitutes a complete discharge of your debt and is most useful if you don’t have any assets. If you would like more information on this subject, visit our About Bankruptcy section.
Chapter 11 Bankruptcy
This chapter is typically used by businesses to pay off a portion of their debts while still continuing their normal operations. The goal is beneficial for both the creditor and debtor because the creditor will be repaid a higher percentage of debt owed to them than if the business closed.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Benefiting the “wage earner”, Chapter 13 is a useful tool for debtors who are threatened with foreclosure and want to keep their house.
Landlord’s Rights in Bankruptcy
Landlords have the possibility of maintaining debt collection actions and evictions when a tenant has declared bankruptcy. Our office has been representing the rights of both debtors and creditors for over 60 years. We can help them protect their rights and use eviction proceedings to get their unit back.
Bankruptcy Law Changes
There has been a great deal of discussion in the media and among concerned debtors about the changes in federal bankruptcy law. Contrary to what you may have heard, most people who qualified for protection before still qualify today. Call our office to learn more.
Automatic Stay Created By Filing Bankruptcy
One of the most useful aspects of filing is the stay that automatically stops all debt collection actions. This feature gives you much-needed time and space to get your finances back in order.
Foreclosure and Bankruptcy
Filing a petition also stops all mortgage foreclosure actions currently underway, as well as preventing lenders from initiating them. Our office has experience representing the rights of both debtors and creditors when they are facing mortgage foreclosure issues.
Business Bankruptcy Cases
Businesses face a number of legal and financial issues that must be carefully considered when filing. Our attorneys, working with financial experts, prepare all necessary paperwork necessary for businesses filing a petition. We also work with trustees and creditors to develop debt reorganization plans that allow your company to maintain day-to-day normal business operations.
Bankruptcy Adversary Proceedings
We advise and represent parties involved in adversary proceedings. We have a great deal of experience filing adversary proceedings and defending those who may have received a preference payment or an alleged fraudulent conveyance.
Bankruptcy Trustee Actions
Our lawyers represent trustees with all manner of litigation that may arise in relation to a bankruptcy case.
