Areas of Practice

Effective legal services for various debtor and creditor needs

At Rothbard, Rothbard, Kohn & Kellar, the focus of our practice is relieving financial distress for individuals and businesses. We often resolve issues for clients through commercial litigation, especially in the construction industry. Other services include:
  • Bankruptcy — We represent debtors and creditors, businesses and individuals, in bankruptcy procedures under Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13.
  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy — This form of consumer bankruptcy allows eligible consumers to get a quick discharge of their qualifying debt so they can start over with a clean slate.
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy — Consumers who have secured debt and a steady income can often keep major assets, such as a home, by filing Chapter 13 and fulfilling a payment plan for three to five years.
  • Collections — We help small-to-large companies collect sums owed for goods, services, and unpaid loans. Our collections attorneys assist contractors and subcontractors with construction liens, and also help professionals recover amounts owed for their services.
  • Unsecured collections — Unsecured transactions pose special problems for creditors, since there is no property to attach if the debtor refuses or is unable to pay. For unsecured collections, we employ highly professional, non-harassing methods, fully compliant with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act to uphold our clients’ rights to repayment without exposing them to liability.
