Phoenix Bankruptcy Attorneys

Our Phoenix bankruptcy attorneys focus on representation of debtors in Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganizations.

Helping financially distressed business and individuals has been a cornerstone of Aiken Schenk's services to clients since the firm's founding in 1989. Led by Lamar Hawkins, an AV®-rated Super Lawyers® selectee, our bankruptcy practice group focuses on helping businesses (corporations, partnerships and LLCs), multi-property residential landlords, and high net worth individuals achieve financial relief through Chapter 11 reorganization.

Debtor Representation in Bankruptcy

For debtors, we offer valuable experience and a tradition of success in Chapter 11 proceedings, ranging from personal insolvencies and restructuring of debt to reorganizations of large, publicly held corporations.

Our debtor bankruptcy services include:

  • plan confirmation

  • loan workouts

  • debt restructuring

  • lien stripping (the removal of a lien for a second or other subordinate deed of trust)

  • cramdowns (used to gain approval of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization plan while there are still objections from creditors)

  • discharge, preference and fraudulent conveyance litigation

  • financial workout negotiation

  • bankruptcy-related tax issues

  • bankruptcy litigation

Responsible, Strategic Bankruptcy Protection

The stigma of bankruptcy has given way to the growing recognition that, for even the most honorable and successful business people and high net worth individuals, bankruptcy protection is an appropriate means of resolving oppressive financial burdens, preserving important business operations, and allowing responsible business people to protect their families and estates against creditors' claims, lawsuits and collection efforts.

The bankruptcy lawyers at the Aiken Schenk law firm will help you analyze your personal and business situation and the nature of the claims against you. We can advise you of your options and the impacts on your business or personal estate. And, if bankruptcy is your preferred remedy, we can help you resolve creditors' claims and discharge your debts. While Chapter 11 reorganization is our main focus, we help debtors for whom other means for restructuring their financial life is preferred.
