Contact a St. Petersburg Bankruptcy Lawyer Today!

It is very possible that any debtor may face legal action at some point from a creditor attempting to collect a debt owed. Facing any legal matter can be unsettling, to say the least. You may be unsure what specific rights you have, as well as what actions can be taken to defend your rights and help you avoid serious losses. In some cases, you may also have a limited time to answer (sometimes only 20 days!) Ignoring the situation or attempting to resolve it on your own can only make matters worse. An attorney experienced in defending people in your situation can represent you both inside and outside of the courtroom in order to best protect your interests.

Consumer & Commercial Litigation

Bankruptcy is not always the best option for everyone. You may not even be considering filing for bankruptcy but are facing an issue involving a lawsuit, foreclosure or a similar legal action because of an unpaid debt that has been haunting you. Discussing your particular situation and your options with a St. Petersburg bankruptcy lawyer means that you can take the appropriate action to face a brighter financial future – whether or not this includes bankruptcy.

Commercial and consumer litigation defense can extend to numerous areas such matters as:

  • Summons
  • Small claims matters
  • Credit card collection lawsuits
  • Business disputes
  • Breach of contract matters
  • Mortgage foreclosure litigation
  • Answering complaints
  • Settlement agreements
  • Motions to dismiss
  • Failure to pay for goods/services
  • Purchase and sale of business

Not all of these matters will need to be resolved in the courtroom. A lawyer can assist you in coming to a settlement agreement with the party who initiated the legal action against you. This may actually save you a great deal of time and money as opposed to a drawn out courtroom battle.
