Christian Panagakos is the founder and Managing Member of Florida Bankruptcy Advisors, a consumer-focused law firm that strives to help individual consumers understand their legal and financial rights as permitted under both state and federal law. He has been a licensed attorney since 1995 and is a current member of both the U.S. District Court and the Bankruptcy Court for Florida’s Southern District.
Throughout his career, Mr. Panagakos has led or supported over $300M in closed transactions across a variety of industries and business capacities. Seeing a need in the South Florida market for a law firm geared to helping individual consumers fight financial challenges caused by the recession, Mr. Panagakos began Florida Bankruptcy Advisors.
If you are an individual consumer facing a financial challenge, we urge you to contact our office before taking any desperate measures like raiding your retirement plan, transferring property, or transferring credit card balances. We also recommend that you contact us if you have been sued or if there is a pending judgment. Creditors often satisfy judgments by seizing bank accounts, garnishing wages or placing liens on property; thus, you are better to avoid them whenever possible. We hope to hear from you sooner rather than later.
