Szabo, we have represented thousands of businesses and individuals in bankruptcy and other proceedings, and can carefully guide you through the solution that works best for you.

If you have questions regarding the bankruptcy process or if bankruptcy is right for you, contact our California law office.

Handling All Types of Bankruptcy Issues

  • Bankruptcy: We handle Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13  bankruptcies for individuals, small business owners, corporations, partnerships, and Limited Liability Companies (LLCs). Lawrence L. Szabo also has the experience and knowledge to take on any bankruptcy-related litigation and appeals. See our Bankruptcy Checklist to find out what you need.
  • Tax Problems: We deal with issues of tax in bankruptcy, offers in compromise (aka tax workouts), installment agreements, non-collectible status, tax and foreclosure issues, and statutes of limitation on tax collection.
  • Mortgages and Lien Stripping:It may be possible to remove or "strip" a second mortgage from a property through either Chapter 13 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
  • Consumer Protection: We have a strong consumer protection, defending people from overzealous debt collectors and forcing credit reporting agencies to fulfill their obligations. We also help our clients carefully examine their debt forgiveness options, helping ensure that they remain compliant with taxes and are not caught in fraudulent debt settlement schemes.
