Let our law firm explain to you how we can help resolve your financial difficulties by representing you in the following:
Immediate protection by a Long Island bankruptcy attorney to stop collection actions, creditor harassment, foreclosure actions, tenant eviction, wage garnishment, and bank restraint. Chapter 7 bankruptcy, as practiced by our Long Island bankruptcy law firm, eliminates most unsecured debts, such as credit card debts, personal loans, and medical bills, to allow individuals a fresh financial start. Chapter 13 bankruptcy, as implemented by our Long Island bankruptcy lawyers, helps individuals by curing mortgage arrears and reducing unsecured debt over a 5-year plan, or by allowing long term mortgage modification through a loss mitigation plan. Chapter 11, as carried out by our LI bankruptcy law office, reorganizes businesses by protecting them from their creditors while a Chapter 11 plan is worked on and presented for potential confirmation with the goal of saving the business by reorganizing its debts. Bankruptcy litigation, in the form of Adversary Proceeding and/or Contested Motions, allows us to defend our bankruptcy clients in cases where there are potential complications that require litigation and/or motion practice within the bankruptcy case. Bankruptcy Appeals allow us to contest a decision of the bankruptcy court by seeking appellate review of the bankruptcy judge’s decision. Bankruptcy issues include: income means testing, exemption applicability to protect assets, potential avoidable transfers, the discharge of particular debts and the feasibility of potential reorganizations. Our law firm concentrates in bankruptcy solutions and is experienced in representing individuals and businesses in Suffolk County, Nassau County and the greater LI and NYC areas in all chapters of the bankruptcy code.
Vigorous defense of foreclosure actions by a Long Island foreclosure lawyer with customized, case-specific answers, pleadings, discovery, conferences, and motions to protect our clients’ homes. Timely defense is important to avoid default and protect a homeowner’s rights. Emergency orders to show cause and motion practice can stop foreclosure sales, and potentially dismiss foreclosure actions, based on defects with documentation, standing, jurisdiction, lack of notice, statute of limitations, and other defenses including predatory lending, fraud and misrepresentation. Foreclosure defense by our attorneys gains time and leverage for Suffolk and Nassau County homeowners seeking modifications and other mortgage solutions. In addition we concentrate in landlord tenant law and litigation for both landlords and tenants in eviction and/or rent collection cases. We also defend virtually any type of debt collection action including but not limited to actions to collect on tax debt, credit card debt, business debt and medical debt. Our law firm concentrates in foreclosure solutions and other debt oriented defense litigation and is experienced in defending individuals and businesses in the greater LI and NYC areas in all aspects of the litigation process.
Persistent negotiation by a Long Island modification lawyer to obtain more affordable mortgage terms, resolve mortgage arrears, and prevent foreclosure, through mortgage modification and/or other agreements, including settlements, payment plans, forbearances and/or short sales. While modifications and other negotiated resolutions are within the lender’s discretion, and while many lenders make these negotiations difficult and overly complicated, our modification attorneys, based on our experience, approach and reputation, have obtained helpful modifications for a high percentage of our Long Island clients. Our law firm also concentrates in general debt negotiation solutions, including: credit card debt negotiations, tax debt negotiations, business debt settlements, student loan debt installation plan, personal loan settlements and other negotiated forms of debt relief, besides mortgage loan modification. We resolve and settle all manners of mortgage and other problematic debt affecting individuals and businesses in Suffolk County, Nassau County and the greater LI and NYC areas.
The Law Office of Ronald D. Weiss, P.C. analyzes each client’s case individually, based on the case’s specific facts and the needs of the client. Our goal is to give our clients highly effective representation that is at the same time compassionate and affordable. Often we look at using the above referenced debt solution tools – bankruptcy, litigation and/or negotiation – as potential alternatives or as part of a larger approach, where they are used to reinforce and build on each other. In each client’s situation we look at and consider all options, the potential for implementation, probable results, timing, and methodology. We develop with our clients a plan to best maximize the chances of successfully resolving burdensome debt and strategize to effectively overcome our clients’ economic challenges.
