Bankruptcy doesn’t just help you get a fresh start financially. It also provides specific legal rights designed to protect consumers from creditor efforts to collect on pre-bankruptcy debts while they are in a bankruptcy.
Even though these protections are part of bankruptcy laws, sometimes creditors violate those protections. And in those cases, Kellett & Bartholow can work with you and your bankruptcy counsel to help protect your rights and recover compensation for the consumer’s harms, losses, and expenses (including attorneys’ fees and costs), and in appropriate circumstances, even punitive damages may be available.
