Guiding Businesses Back To Financial Stability

Peter Wittlin can provide Chapter 7, Chapter 13 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy services for businesses.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy is commonly referred to as the “fresh start” bankruptcy because it a form of debt relief that is intended to reset the finances of individuals and families who have become overwhelmed with piles of debt in areas such as credit cards, personal loans, utility bills, medical bills, and even outstanding debts owed to retailers. The biggest advantage to filing a chapter 7 bankruptcy is that the client can relinquish their debts completely while still being able to hold on to their personal property such as their home, car, and other sentimental valuables.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is what’s commonly referred to as  “reorganization bankruptcy”, and is a form of debt relief designed for individuals and married couples who are also overwhelmed with outstanding debt, but cannot file for a Chapter 7 because they either make too much money to qualify or have a certain amount of overall equity in real estate. However, filing for a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can still greatly aid in stopping any further collection efforts such as wage garnishments and threats of foreclosure.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy, in particular, can be particularly complex because it involves a viable reorganization plan that provides for loan modification or business debt consolidation.

Mr. Wittlin understands the benefits that Chapter 11 can provide and can use his experience in bankruptcy law to make sure you understand them too. For example, filing a Chapter 11 bankruptcy can be extremely helpful to businesses that fall behind on payroll taxes or that are seeking a means to escape unfavorable lease terms. His services as a bankruptcy lawyer can help businesses defer payments to secured creditors while preventing repossession. He also helps with pre-petition Chapter 11 planning and creditor acceptance. In many instances, he can provide alternative remedies outside of the business filing bankruptcy.
