- MaryBeth Schroeder have represented debtors and creditors, in cases arising under Chapters 7, 11 and 13 of the Bankruptcy Code, since 1989. Our practice is primarily engaged in the representation of consumer debtors seeking relief under the Bankruptcy Code, although we also provide representation to small businesses and corporations.
- We also represent debtors and creditors in litigation arising under the Bankruptcy Code, through adversary proceeding complaints. Our predominant area of litigation has arisen in connection with the enforcement of the automatic stay provisions of Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code, and with the enforcement of the order of discharge under Section 524 of the Bankruptcy Code. Not surprisingly, many creditors have declined to honor the dictates of federal law, and have continued attempts to collect debts from debtors under the protection of the Bankruptcy Code; we have filed numerous suits against creditors, collection agencies and collection attorneys, and obtained significant damages for our clients.
- We believe that the quickest and easiest way through the bankruptcy system is through the use of transparency. Complete and detailed candor, in our view, is required by the Bankruptcy Code, and the failure to make complete disclosures can lead to prosecution by the United States Trustee’s Office, through the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, for bankruptcy fraud.
- Consequently, we insist that our clients provide us with all information, stringently detailed, so that full and complete compliance with the strict dictates of the Bankruptcy Code can be met. We have a reputation for excruciating detail: translation, we ask for a room-by-room inventory of your personal property, and if you have pets, we want their names and ages.
- That attention to detail, among other ways in which we practice, sets this office apart from other law firms. Attorneys will handle your case, not paralegals. When you go to a Meeting of Creditors, you will not be meeting your attorney for the very first time. If you call or e-mail your attorney, you will get a response from that attorney.
- When you finally receive your order of discharge from the Bankruptcy Court, we will provide you with correspondence to send, in your name, to the credit reporting agencies; it is important to ensure that they are properly reflecting the event of discharge on your credit report, as that is the very first step in reestablishing your creditworthiness.
We are federally designated consumer debt relief agency under Title 11 of the United States Code. We provide legal assistance to consumers under the United States Bankruptcy Code.
