More than ever, making mistakes is costly.
What impresses us from twenty-five-plus years of bankruptcy experience is that too many people end up finding out too late that their bankruptcy did not work out the way they planned. They end up losing the home or car they had hoped to save. They end up being sued by a creditor or a trustee, or worse yet, they end up having their family sued. Often this is because their attorney did not take the time or have the knowledge to plan for or avoid these problems. With 22 years as a bankruptcy trustee and 27 years representing debtors, creditors, businesses and trustees, Steve Neuner has seen it all and knows how to plan for and deal with these situations before they get out of hand.

Many of our clients are businesses, or now have or previously had businesses in trouble. We help you determine whether bankruptcy is worthwhile, or whether one of the alternatives to bankruptcy makes more sense. We can help you with a workout plan for your creditors or other options. Most business owners are concerned about losing an income or being saddled with personal debt. We can also help business owners deal prudently and effectively with the personal impact of a business failure. Click here for more about the problems that put businesses into bankruptcy.
Under the new bankruptcy laws that went into effect on October 17, 2005, the margin for error has gotten smaller. For example, if your bankruptcy case gets dismissed, you may have to wait another 12 months before filing another in order to stop creditor suits, foreclosures or other collection activity. Or you may find yourself caught by the “means test”.
However, bankruptcy is still available for most people, even after the new bankruptcy laws (2005 BAPCPA). If you have an experienced guide, bankruptcy is still available and can work to give you the help you need!
Before you file bankruptcy, make sure your professional adviser takes the time and has the knowledge and experience to give you the right answers.
Steven R. Neuner our bankruptcy partner, has seen these mistakes played out first-hand, as a trustee himself or as an attorney for other trustees, or in representing creditors. He has filed or presided over hundreds of bankruptcy cases and proceedings over the past 24 years. For more about him and his background click here.
