Debtor Creditor Law

Our creditor and debtor practice group deal with situations where one party is unable to pay an alleged debt owed to another.

Where the lien is a result of a secured transaction or a judicial proceeding, special attention must be given to the underlying cause of the lien. Petroff Amshen Debtor and Creditor law practice group protects clients liability and potential exposure for previously discharged debts. Petroff Amshen’s bankruptcy attorneys provide guidance to best resolve the matter. We focus on prior liability as well as potential exposure that may result in paying debts that have been discharged before.
