Strategic Solutions For Complex Bankruptcy Cases

We take a different approach to personal bankruptcy. We are not a volume practice that is designed to file the largest possible number of bankruptcies. ChildersLaw is a high-touch practice geared to solving complex and problematic cases. Our firm has consistently achieved good results where other bankruptcy lawyers could not or would not help.

We take our time with every client to fully understand his or her financial situation and find creative solutions, even if the best solution is not to file bankruptcy at all. Rather than viewing bankruptcy as a necessary evil, we view it is a positive opportunity to end one chapter and start a new, better one. By focusing on each client's case, we identify all their legal rights under the bankruptcy code and help our clients eliminate as much debt as possible while retaining as many assets as possible under the rules.

We push the boundaries to help clients eliminate as much debt as possible while retaining as many assets as possible.

Making The Most Of Your Bankruptcy

Our Gainesville law firm represents individuals and couples, as well as small businesses and nonprofit organizations, in Alachua County, North Central Florida and beyond. No case is too simple or too small, but we specialize in helping high-income clients facing barriers or special considerations in filing for bankruptcy.

We can sit down with you to explore your options:

  • Chapter 7 — Elimination of debts and instant relief from creditor actions
  • Chapter 13 — Reprieve from creditors and financial breathing room
  • Chapter 11 — A timeout to settle with creditors or liquidate the business
  • Bankruptcy disputes — Defending your discharge and other challenges to your petition through litigation

Because we think outside the box, we can often help clients who may have been advised by other attorneys that they were not eligible for bankruptcy or could not protect assets. Jeff Childers has litigated in many bankruptcy cases, defending clients from overly aggressive creditors and trustees. His focused approach not only gets results in supposedly hopeless cases, but also helps clients take maximum advantage of bankruptcy while complying with all legal requirements.

We Aim To Change Your Perspective About Bankruptcy

We understand the psychological toll of making the decision to file bankruptcy. But the truth is that if done properly, a bankruptcy can be one of the best things that happen in your life. We help guide our clients down the right path and connect them with the resources that can help make this fresh start dramatically productive.

When complex financial issues or litigation arises in bankruptcy, we aggressively represent our clients' interest against overreaching creditors. We can also help advise these clients with pre-bankruptcy planning to maximize their position in bankruptcy through all legal means. Jeff Childers will take the time to address your concerns and personally accompany you to your 341 meeting before the trustee.

Our clients have access to an attorney or paralegal after hours and at appointed weekend times because we understand that it is not always possible or practical to take time from work. We make sure that you get all the help you need on your path through the process of filing bankruptcy.
