Debtor-Creditor Law

We represent debtors, creditors and other interested parties in debtor-creditor court proceedings and in out-of-court, workouts. Shapira, Hutzelman and Smith handle debtor-creditor litigation in a wide range of contexts, including but not limited to:

  • Bankruptcy litigation
  • Collection litigation
  • Judgment enforcement
  • Workouts
  • Garnishments
  • Repossessions

Our firm takes a practical approach to debtor-creditor law, recognizing the cost and risk of litigation, and the significant value of a speedy resolution of disputes. We begin with a thorough review of the loan, sale, or lease transaction involved, analyzing credit and collateral risks, the possibility of counterclaims, defenses, and the likelihood of a timely and cost effective litigation remedy. We then develop and implement a litigation strategy, while simultaneously pursuing reasonable settlements. We believe that our approach of pursuing both litigation and appropriate negotiation strategies maximizes benefits to clients, while reducing both legal expenses and litigations risks.
