How Can Our Los Angeles Bankruptcy Lawyers Help?

We live in a debt fueled economy, and while taking on some debt allows us to do some of the things we might not be able to otherwise (buy a house, pay for college, repair our cars), debt can become overwhelming when unemployment, illness, business reversal or other unexpected events make keeping up with debt repayments more than we can bear. Overwhelming debt causes more than just financial hardship; it can affect our health, our relationships, our good credit standing, and have a host of other negative effects upon us.

Finding solid, reliable information that will aid you in making wise choices when it comes to debt relief can also be very difficult. At Weintraub & Selth, APC, you will find the help and guidance you need in order to find the relief you, your family and your business so desperately need with one of our Los Angeles bankruptcy attorneys. We are one of the only law firms in Los Angeles with expertise and experience in all chapters of bankruptcy as well as out of court alternatives to bankruptcy.

That means that unlike our competitors, we will get you the type of relief that is right for you, not what is best for the firm. We always look for other debt relief solutions before recommending bankruptcy. Our knowledge and experience with business and consumer bankruptcy cases is second to none. Our attorneys are both business and personal Los Angeles bankruptcy lawyers with years of experience. To arrange an appointment with our Los Angeles bankruptcy attorneys, please contact us online or call our office at (310) 620-1008 or (877) 716-7285.

Straightforward Bankruptcy and Debt Relief Solutions

The bankruptcy attorneys of Weintraub & Selth, APC, represent clients throughout Los Angeles and all of Southern California. Our bankruptcy attorneys have knowledge and experience to help you seek debt relief. Whether you are a small business owner, a partner in a corporation, or an individual or family in need of debt relief, we can help. Whether bankruptcy is right for you or alternatives exist, our attorneys will be your allies and your guides as we identify the solution you need.

When you work with our bankruptcy attorneys, you can rest assured that you will be receiving experienced counsel that is tailored precisely to your unique financial situation. We will review your case thoroughly, including assets, income and debts, as well as your debt relief goals. Your goals are our goals, and we will suggest strategies to help you meet them.

While bankruptcy may be the appropriate option for you, we may be able to suggest others. Our attorneys focus on helping individuals and businesses overcome their financial problems. As experienced bankruptcy and debt-resolution attorneys, a bankruptcy filing is only one of the tools in our “toolbox.” There are occasions when bankruptcy is the right tool and others where it is not.

Bankruptcy can be filed by any individual, married couple, corporation, partnership or any other business entity. A business trust can also file for bankruptcy. You do not have to possess assets to file. Even if you have civil judgments against you or you are behind on paying bills, you can still file. Many people believe that anyone who files bankruptcy is embroiled in financial difficulties. While most people who file for bankruptcy relief are having financial difficulties, bankruptcy can be used to avoid many financial difficulties including foreclosure of a home or shuttering a business.

For example, are you hoping to continue business operations or close down and move on? Do you want to keep your home or do you need to get out of the mortgage? Once we have all the relevant information we can suggest a custom tailored plan of action that will work for you. Corporations, partnerships and other business entities may also file bankruptcy without going out of business. They may not even be in default to their creditors. Filing bankruptcy can be a sound business strategy even if financial catastrophe is not occurring.

If you are interested in personal debt relief, our Los Angeles bankruptcy attorneys can help. In the United States, individuals may be able to relieve all or part of overwhelming debt when they can no longer meet their obligations to creditors and lenders by filing bankruptcy. The majority of individuals will choose one of two options: Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which allows debtors to discharge all or part of their debt, or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, in which debtors repay all or part of their debt based on a payment plan.

Our founding attorneys each have more than 65 years of combined experience. In addition, Mr. Weintraub was selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers five years in a row and is a mediator for the United States Bankruptcy Court. Mr. Selth was also selected for inclusion in Super Lawyers and is a State Bar Certified Bankruptcy Specialist.

These distinctions have been achieved over the last several decades. We have consistently helped our clients throughout Southern California achieve peace of mind that comes from having experienced professionals on their side.

At Weintraub & Selth, APC, you will find innovative fee structures that allow us to take many cases on a flat fee, payment-over-time, or fee cap basis. This enables our clients to plan their monthly expense for attorneys’ fees or cap their costs for bankruptcy litigation services.

Once it becomes clear that a bankruptcy filing should take place, the question of the best time to file arises. We carefully assess all factual and legal issues of each client on a case-by-case basis. There is no “one-size-fits-all” solution. We want to achieve the best possible outcome for each client. We take the time to analyze multiple possibilities to ensure our clients get the best possible representation.

Our personal bankruptcy lawyers are committed to delivering aggressive and creative debt solutions at affordable fees. We have developed an innovative fee structure that allows us to bundle legal services for a flat or monthly fee. This enables our clients to cap their costs for legal services or plan their monthly expense for personal bankruptcy.

Contact our Los Angeles bankruptcy attorneys, by calling our Los Angeles office at (310) 620-1008 or (877) 716-7285, or contact us online to schedule an appointment. We have extensive experience guiding our clients through the bankruptcy process and have helped many of our clients avoid bankruptcy altogether.  We are a debt relief agency and want to help.  Our attorneys can help you file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

What Our CLients Say

Claudia and I wanted to thank you for all the work you did.

We were both blown away by your compassion and drive to help us get in a better position. You gave us our lives back. Your constant guidance led us into a place of peace. You guys are the best at what you do. Your staff was also a huge part of helping and we are thankful for their kindness. Thank you for being the trustworthy professionals who helped restore our faith.

Craig and Claudia

We recently engaged the the services of Dan Weintraub of Weintraub & Selth, a legal firm located in Los Angeles. We were looking for someone who could BK an LLC, quickly, reasonably and fairly. We interviewed several attorneys, Weintraub was by far the the most knowledgeable, providing easily to understand scenarios of various options. Weintraub fit the bill, not only did he BK the LLC in minimal time, he saved lots of money by suggesting a cheaper, quicker and more effective alternative.

We could not have been more pleased. He and his staff did it all, our only involvement was receiving timely updates.

Hopefully we don’t have to go through another BK, but if we do, Weintraub is the only attorney we would trust.

    Meeting of Creditors

    Meeting of Creditors

    This takes place approximately five weeks after the case is filed. You will need to attend and provide answers under oath to questions about things such as your assets and liabilities. It is very informal and typically takes approximately five minutes.
