BANKRUPTCY :: BUSINESS
Running a business of any type is a challenging proposition, and in a volatile economy, many business owners can be overburdened by financial difficulties. If your business is failing financially and you cannot pay creditors, it is critical that you understand how bankruptcy works and what options are available. Since bankruptcy may not, in fact, be the right option, it is important to select a qualified, knowledgeable and experienced attorney in bankruptcy law.
At Barnett & Rubin, we have over 30 years of experience advising and representing business owners in bankruptcy matters. We understand how business owners sacrifice greatly for their businesses and the heartache that comes with the potential filing of bankruptcy. Our attorneys provide the expert guidance that you need during this difficult time.
