Creditors' Rights & Bankruptcy

Protecting your financial investments and interests often involves enforcing your right to payment and the effective navigation through the potential bankruptcy filings of your debtors. At Hahn|Walz, our South Bend attorneys protect creditors' rights in debt collection and enforcement of liens, contracts and secured interests. In such cases, we provide zealous advocacy focused on serving our clients' objectives.

We understand that time spent pursuing the collection of debt can be tedious and, at times, wasteful. Therefore, we focus on achieving results in the most effective and efficient manner possible. In some cases, this includes negotiating debt repayment schedules, lump-sum settlements or other workouts. In others, it means pursuing litigation.

Our firm also has extensive experience pursuing actions in objection to bankruptcy. Should the debtor seek bankruptcy relief after being sued, we will strive to pursue your interests regarding payment of debt and secured interests as allowed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

Consumer And Business Bankruptcy Representation

In addition to assisting creditors, our firm represents individual consumers and businesses who seek debt relief through bankruptcy. We understand that debt accumulates for a variety of reasons, and often due to circumstances beyond your control. Further, we understand bankruptcy relief may be a necessary step toward a shifting business focus.

Whatever the case may be, our attorneys provide clients with effective legal advice with respect to bankruptcy in the following scenarios:

  • For individuals: We help qualifying individuals prevent wage garnishment, stop creditor harassment and foreclosure, and gain a fresh start through consumer bankruptcy through the use of Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
  • For businesses: We analyze all debt relief options for your business, including Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. In some cases, bankruptcy may in fact not be the right option to resolve financial issues; in others, it may be the best strategy to wind down the business or to protect its continued viability.
