Creditor Representation in Bankruptcy

Fortson, Bentley and Griffin’s bankruptcy attorneys have represented banks, companies and individuals owed money by debtors that have filed for bankruptcy protection. If a debtor of yours has filed for bankruptcy, FB&G’s bankruptcy attorneys can help you file the necessary documents, such as the proof of claim, obtain relief from the automatic stay, file a complaint objecting to discharge or excepting a debt from discharge, object to plans, and negotiate settlements with the debtor.

Once a debtor has filed a bankruptcy petition, the creditors are expected to abide by the applicable laws, and any and all collection efforts must stop. As a creditor, it is important that you contact a competent bankruptcy attorney as soon as you receive notice, so that you do not violate any of these laws and are able to meet important deadlines. Bankruptcy operates on a strict timeline, and creditors often lose their rights for failing to take action within the prescribed time.

If you are a creditor in need of assistance with a bankruptcy, please contact us online or by telephone at 706-548-1151 to speak with one of FB&G’s experienced banking and finance attorneys.
