Brian’s Background as a DFW Bankruptcy Attorney
Before joining the law firm, Brian worked as a bankruptcy attorney at the largest firm in Dallas County, which was based in both Dallas as well as with a Fort Worth division where he primarily focused on bankruptcy cases. Brian also worked as a civil litigation attorney and a trial attorney.
For those folks who are unfamiliar, the concept of bankruptcy for a business as opposed to that of a consumer situation is quite different. While a Ch. 11 case is made famous through the news, it is rarely used for consumers except in cases of high net worth individuals. If there were a wealthy person who ended up facing serious financial troubles, but who had considerable assets and large financial liabilities, he could use bankruptcy via chapter 11 of the code to reorganize his financial affairs. Aside from a situation like this, a chapter 11 is simply not a good option for most consumers. On the contrary, a Ch. 13 or 7 bankruptcy are regularly employed as a powerful legal tool for clients in consumer cases. Chapter 13 is known as a “wage earner’s bankruptcy” due to the fact that it involves a repayment plan that requires an income in order to be able to make the monthly trustee payments. These trustee payments are divvied out to creditors according to their stature. For some clients, the chapter 13 payments are paid only to secured creditors due to the fact that their budgets in the plan allow only for this amount of money to barely be paid out to these creditors in order to be able to catch up payments on major assets such as a home, car, or other vehicle.
In other situations, a Ch. 7 case would be more appropriate. Often, a homeowner is behind on a mortgage to an extend that saving the home from foreclosure is simply not a long-term viable option. In cases like these, a chapter 7 bk would allow the consumer to buy time, staying in the home as long as legally feasible through a blocking of the foreclosure action with the bankruptcy’s automatic stay.
