Creditors’ Rights and Bankruptcy

Our Creditors' Rights and Bankruptcy Practice Group is dedicated to serving the needs and protecting the interests of creditors in a wide variety of industries. Our practice includes the representation of institutional and individual clients in Federal district courts, Bankruptcy courts and state courts in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Florida and Georgia. Our attorneys and staff work together to fully represent the interests of our clients who need to enforce their rights as creditors in almost any context. Matters can be as simple as collecting a delinquent account or foreclosing a mortgage, or as complex as representing a creditor through a lengthy commercial bankruptcy proceeding.

Replevin and Foreclosure

The firm has a long history of assisting clients who need to locate, indentify, and recover their collateral, whether it is personal property or real property. Our clients include banks, credit unions, specialized finance companies such as motor vehicle and mobile home lenders, and commercial equipment finance companies.

Collections

Our collections practice originated as a natural progression of our efforts to fully serve our existing clients’ legal needs. We routinely handle the collection of accounts that have emerged from other legal proceedings such as bankruptcy, replevin, foreclosure, or eviction and continue to pursue those accounts post judgment. Our services include collection of all types of commercial accounts, installment contracts, mechanic’s liens, and sales taxes. We have developed our own collection management system which allows us to effectively serve our clients’ needs for timely information and results.

Bankruptcy

Our Bankruptcy Department represents both national and local creditors of all types in Chapter 7, Chapter 11, Chapter 12, and Chapter 13 bankruptcies. Our attorneys and staff are knowledgeable and can respond to the needs of our clients in even the most complex bankruptcy setting. In addition to our regular practice area footprint, we are routinely admitted pro hac vice in bankruptcy courts around the country, including Delaware, New York and California. The number of long-term clients that use the firm to protect their interest in bankruptcy reflects the firm’s commitment to provide excellent service at a reasonable cost.

In addition to representing creditors in bankruptcy proceedings, the firm is experienced in the representation of Chapter 7 Trustees, Chapter 13 Trustees, Unsecured Creditor Committees, and other specially appointed roles such as examiner and special administrator.

The firm is also regularly engaged to defend and prosecute a variety of adversary proceedings in bankruptcy court including dischargeability issues, lien determination, and stay violations, in addition to actions which have been removed from state court.
