BANKRUPTCY SERVICES FOR DEBTORS

We provide free consultations to individuals, families and businesses in financial distress to assist them in evaluating what options including but not limited to bankruptcy might help them get out from under their debts.  We have experience in hundreds of cases and work hard to find individual customized solutions for each client.  There is never any fee for an initial consultation and no obligation to hire our firm.  Clients will meet with one of the firm’s lawyers to discuss what options we see as possible before a recommendation is made to file bankruptcy.  If bankruptcy does present a viable option to help a client get a fresh start, we will continue to work closely with each client to eliminate as much debt as possible without sacrificing assets like a house, a car or retirement accounts.

BANKRUPTCY SERVICES FOR CREDITORS

            We help to protect creditors’ rights in bankruptcy courts across New York State.  We have an extensive network of attorneys to appear in each court to ensure the quick and efficient disposition and release of assets.  Whether a creditor needs relief from the automatic stay to repossess a car or needs effective representation in objecting to plan provisions which undermine or undervalue its collateral, we have the staff, resources and know how to get results.  We have tailored our creditor practice to the local and specific rules in each bankruptcy court as we know the local rules and practice varies from city to city and from judge to judge.  Our rates are reasonable and we are able to handle matters big and small with professional experienced counsel.  We also regularly appear as local counsel for out of town law firms in courts throughout Monroe County including appearances in Supreme Court at foreclosure settlement conferences, in Bankruptcy Court and in Rochester City Court.

REAL ESTATE SERVICES

            We have helped hundreds of families buy and sell homes in the Greater Rochester area acting as closing attorneys and legal advisers to help navigate important decisions effecting the purchase and sale of homes, condominiums, townhouses, commercial buildings and vacant land.  As with all of our legal services, you will be working directly with one of our lawyers who will be personally familiar with your file and assisted by a full time paralegal dedicated to making your transaction go smoothly.  We are there to answer your questions and work through any difficulties that arise.  We charge competitive rates and generally no fee is owed unless and until the deal closes.

BUSINESS SERVICES

            If you are starting up a new business or buying or selling an existing one, we have the experience to help with your new venture or business transfer.  We can help explain the differences between LLCs and corporations and the advantages of each.  We can assist in filing any and all papers with the regulatory agencies in a quick and efficient manner so your new business is organized properly and legally under New York law.  We have assisted in both simple and complex asset sales and stock purchases and the dissolution of companies and distribution of business assets.  Some of the types of businesses we have represented in these transactions include restaurants, medical practices, dental practices, retail operations, warehouses, technology start-ups, manufacturers and sales companies.
