Creditor Rights Representation

While bankruptcy laws are mainly meant to protect the debtor, creditors also retain rights under bankruptcy law in these situations. However, if you delay in asserting your rights quickly as a creditor, there is a chance that you can lose them in a bankruptcy case. Our attorneys at The Markarian Group have a proven track record of success representing creditors in bankruptcy proceedings, and we promise to zealously advocate for your rights.

Creditors’ Rights in Bankruptcy

When a debtor gives notice that they have filed for bankruptcy, creditors still have rights regarding the debt that they are owed. One of the most common times when creditors’ rights are affected is when the bankruptcy court orders an “automatic stay” for the debtor. This prohibits any creditor from seeking reimbursement for their debts. However, a creditor can still petition the court for relief from the automatic stay with an experienced bankruptcy attorney at their side.
