5
Practice areas
  1. Bankruptcy and debt
    30%
    Bankruptcy represents the overall emphasis of the practice in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Virginia.

    38 years, 500 cases

  2. Chapter 11 bankruptcy
    20%
    Chapter 11 allows great flexibility to help businesses maintain their going concern value by restructuring economic relationships and staying creditors from enforcing their legal remedies. Chapter 11 also helps high asset individuals to reorganize their economic lives.

    38 years, 400 cases

  3. Chapter 7 bankruptcy
    20%
    Chapter 7 is a "straight liquidation" that allows debtors the greatest possible fresh start from their debts. Most Chapter 7 cases are "no asset" cases where the debtor retains their exempt property and the property that is fully secured by lien creditors.

    38 years, 500 cases

  4. Chapter 13 bankruptcy
    15%
    Chapter 13 provides opportunities for consumer debtors (and, occasionally, business debtors too) to retain their homes or repay all or part of their debts by making monthly payments to a Chapter 13 trustee.

    38 years, 300 cases

  5. Litigation
    15%
    Commercial litigation involves resolving business and real estate disputes through the courts. The laws and rules of Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Virginia are all somewhat different, but the fundamental aspects of pleading, motions, discovery, trial and persuasion remain constant through all jurisdictions.

    38 years, 200 cases

I believe strongly in listening. By carefully listening to my clients, I can help them prioritize their needs and reach decisions that make the best sense for them, their companies and/or their families.

 

Similarly, I listen carefully to the judges, trustees, co-owners and adversaries so that I can help them obtain what they really want from the transaction, while at the same time helping my clients realize their goals.

Chapter 11 Preference Demand defense
My experience with Mr. Drescher was excellent. He set up a zoom call soon after I contacted him on the site. He correctly ascertained all the details of my case and the actionable advise he gave me at the end of the call paved the way for my defense. He charged me nothing for this. I am very grateful for having met Mr. Drescher and I would recommend him to anybody who is seeking legal counsel in his areas of speciality.

Filing bankruptcy can be an overwhelming and stressful time. I'm glad I went to Mr. Drescher (Drescher & Associates law)for legal help. They are genuine, very professional and extremely helpful. They answered all questions I had and I felt welcomed with the burden being lifted off my shoulders even at our first meeting. I greatly appreciate their willingness to work with me and take on my case. I had a very positive outcome for my case. I'm very grateful. I feel honored to recommend Mr. Drescher without hesitation to anyone seeking legal help for bankruptcy matters. He's terrific guy and would work diligently to get the results you deserved.

Bankruptcy Guide
In the course of my Chapter 13 case, Ron walked me through the questions and circumstances associated with my case. He was up front with evaluating my next steps and his office kept me in the loop with any communications sent to and received from the Trustee. I recently received my discharge once I completed all of the required payments set out in the bankruptcy plan. Because we built Trust early in the process and we frequently interacted I did not have any additional objections to the payment plan thanks to Ron’s personal involvement. Ron had my best interest throughout this ordeal. He repeatedly proved to me that he was the right person for handling my case without a doubt. Do not look any further. Ron’s legal advice was on point and his legal team was always professional and supportive.

Ron drescher is the wonderful lawyer that helped me through a very overwhelming situation. I didn’t know what to do as far as the piled up bills I felt like would never go away. As of today , I am discharged & ready to live a brand new life. One thing that’s most important is BE VERY CAREFUL WITH YOUR CREDIT. That will forever be my very first priority because of Mr. Ron.

Beyond appreciative
I had the best experience with Drescher Law. I called after office hours with an emergency situation and got a call back from Ron personally that same night. He put my mind at ease. He had my back and fought on my behalf. My situation was resolved in a matter of days. Ron and his staff went above and beyond and I can't thank them enough.

excellent bankruptcy attorney
I consulted Ron after working with several bankruptcy attorneys, and his knowledge and expertise in this area is superb. He immediately got to the crux of the matter, calmed my fears, explained patiently what the options were, and gave me hope. I highly recommend him to anyone going through this nightmare. His fee structure is more than reasonable, and he will be there every step of the way with you.

Excellent Service
No one dreams of having to file for bankruptcy, but, when reality sets in with no other alternative, Drescher and Associates is the team you want to represent you. From my initial consultation, I was kept informed of what to expect and received guidance throughout out the entire process. It was, and is, an emotional and difficult time; Mr. Drescher and his team of professionals never lost sight of this. I never once felt like just a case number, or that who I was could be found in a file folder. I, personally, am thankful I found them and would highly recommend everyone to him.

Excellent
We found Ron Drescher online, and we feel so lucky! After the combination of some business problems, bad decisions, a large mortgage and home values dropping, we were in trouble. With the guidance and support of Ron and his team, we studied our options and filed for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Now, years later, we have successfully completed our Chapter 13 bankruptcy! Ron and his team were with us throughout the process. It is a wonderful feeling! We highly recommend Ron Drescher!
