Bankruptcy Appeals

Bankruptcy is complicated, and a bankruptcy appeal is even more complex. There are numerous moving parts that can affect you or your client. Whether you represent the debtor or creditor, a person or a corporation, you need experienced appellate attorneys on your side.

Because of the nature of the bankruptcy process, bankruptcy appeals are unique. Unlike traditional civil appeals, you do not have to wait until the conclusion of bankruptcy to file an appeal. In fact, you need to be able to identify appealable decisions and act fast to preserve your right to the bankruptcy estate. Many times, a bankruptcy judge’s ruling can qualify as an independent, discrete, final, and appealable unit. As a creditor, you do not want to lose the priority of your claim, lose a secured interest, receive less than you are owed, or suffer anything else that is detrimental to your claim. As a debtor, you do not want to pay more than required or lose out on the best possible options for a clean reorganization or a fresh start. Appellate attorneys can help you identify your rights and put your appeal in motion.

The appellate deadlines occur much quickly in a bankruptcy appeal. For example, you only have 14 days to file a notice of appeal to preserve your rights. Appeals can be difficult for even the most seasoned bankruptcy attorney. We have experienced appellate attorneys who can guide you through the intricacies of a bankruptcy appeal.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
“Susan has worked tirelessly for years filing appeals on my behalf. Finally her efforts and persistence has paid off. After serving 11 and 1/2 years, I was released from Federal Prison and have been able to return to my family and help once again with raising my children [now age 16]. My family and I owe a debt of gratitude which we will never be able to repay. The love we feel for Susan is immeasurable.” Joe R.
★★★★★
“Our case was complicated and time critical. Susan took charge of the entire process, keeping us updated with texts, phone calls and emails. She worked through a Holiday weekend to make certain our case got the attention and success required to bring our loved one home. It is also very important to know that she has sophisticated research tools, which are IMPERATIVE when you have to navigate through the Appeals process.” Jack H.
★★★★★
“Susan is a thoroughly dedicated professional that has a unique empathy for cases that reveal the misapplication of justice that so often affects those with limited resources. Through her tireless efforts, one of my best friends had six years reduced from his sentence. The family and I will be forever grateful to Susan.” James P.
