Bankruptcy Litigation & Appeals

Fighting on your Behalf Through Bankruptcy Litigation & Appeals

When people think of bankruptcy law, they typically think just of the common Chapter 7, Chapter 13, and Chapter 11 filing types. In many cases, however, there can also be litigation involved, which needs to be handled correctly in order to avoid problems. In addition, it may be necessary to appeal the results of a bankruptcy case. For both litigation and appeals cases, The Law Offices of B. David Sisson has the experience needed to help.

David Sisson, the founder of the firm, has been certified as a specialist in bankruptcy law by the American Board of Certification, and has been helping people through every aspect of this area of law since 1990. Whether you are an individual consumer, a small business, or even a creditor, he is here to help ensure you get fair and just results from any type of bankruptcy case.

Helping Debtors

Going through bankruptcy can be stressful, but it is all worth it once the process is completed. The bankruptcy process isn’t complete, however, until any involved litigation or appeals are completed as well. Whether you’re currently in bankruptcy, or you thought you had it behind you, we are here to help.

Our law offices can help you to work through creditor lawsuits, disputes over the dischargeability of certain types of debts, determining the value of assets, handling proof of claims disputes, and any type of bankruptcy appeal.

Working with Bankruptcy Trustees

In many types of bankruptcy cases, a trustee is appointed to ensure everything is handled according to the court orders. We have the knowledge and experience needed to work directly with trustees to ensure everything is done in accordance with the Bankruptcy Code. This includes completing investigations of debtors, evaluating creditor claims, assessing values, and more.

Representing Creditors

While we typically don’t represent creditors in bankruptcy cases, there are certain exceptions. For example, after a divorce, you may realize that you paid for an expense that was not a family expense, and for which your former spouse should be responsible for. In these situations, you would be considered the creditor, and your ex would be the debtor. In order to collect the money owed, especially if your ex is filing for bankruptcy, you will need an experienced attorney to help represent you through the process.

Finishing the Bankruptcy Process Strong

Even if you thought that your bankruptcy was completed only to find out there is further litigation—or even an appeal—it is important that you don’t lose sight of the goals. Attorney David Sisson can help you throughout this process, even if he wasn’t your attorney during your bankruptcy. Reach out to us to discuss your situation and see how we can assist.
