Bankruptcy Court Litigation

North Carolina Bankruptcy Litigation Attorneys

In some bankruptcy cases the bulk of the work is done on the front end before the case is filed. Client consultations, pre-filing strategizing, asset-maneuvering, document gathering, petition and schedule preparation appointments all occur before a case ever hits the court’s docket.

However, our attorneys have the courtroom experience and knowledge necessary to tackle difficult cases. We also attempt to anticipate resistance that may come from creditors, trustees and the Bankruptcy Administrator.

An initial consultation is always free. Our goal is to provide prospective clients with our honest perspective on the matter which we hope will be informative and useful even if these choose to retain a different firm.

Common Disputes in Bankruptcy Litigation

Although bankruptcy cases often move smoothly through the court system, disputes do emerge that can only be solved through litigation. Some of the common issues our attorneys handle in bankruptcy court include:

  • Automatic stay violations
  • Tax issues
  • Valuation disputes
  • Objections to exemptions
  • Abusive chapter 7 filings
  • Lien avoidance
  • Claim disputes
  • Discharge and dischargeability
  • Stay relief motions
  • Avoidance actions (such as fraudulent transfers and preference recovery)
  • Discharge injunction violations
  • Contested confirmations
  • Post-confirmation plan modifications
  • Abandonments and asset sales

The truth is: Every bankruptcy case we handle is unique. Our attorneys will conduct a thorough assessment of the challenges you may face so we can develop a strategy tailored to your case. Contact us today o set up a free consultation.
