Case Conclusion Date:January 1, 2006

Practice Area:Bankruptcy / Chapter 7

Outcome:discharge unsecured debt, save operating business

Description:Through extensive research, preparation, and documentation, and by taking an aggressive yet substantiated position with the interim trustee and secured creditors, enabled my client to keep the doors to his small business open, while discharging all unsecured debt (in excess of $300,000) and renegotiating the balances of secured claims by 50% to the fair market value of the collateral, in an individual chapter 7 case.
