Our Practice

Chapter 7

A case filed under Chapter 7 of the United States Bankruptcy Code typically provides the most straightforward means of discharging debt and obtaining a “fresh start.” Sender Wasserman Wadsworth represents both business entities and individuals, whether debtors or creditors, in Chapter 7 cases.

Every Chapter 7 case, from the simplest to the most complex, requires strategic planning and analysis. Whether you are a debtor or a creditor, your case will receive hands-on attention from attorneys, not legal assistants. We are not a “bankruptcy mill.”  Our attorneys are intimately involved in every stage of the Chapter 7 process.

We have extensive experience in Chapter 7 proceedings. Two of our partners, Harvey Sender and Dave Wadsworth, are on the panel of Chapter 7 trustees for the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado. Harvey and Dave have administered thousands of cases as trustees. We also represent other trustees and have represented clients in connection with all aspects of Chapter 7, including contested exemption and discharge litigation.

As creditor attorneys, we frequently represent banks, lenders, landlords and equipment lessors in seeking relief from the automatic stay, lease terminations and recovery of collateral. We also have experience representing creditors petitioning for involuntary bankruptcy relief.

Whatever the issue, Sender Wasserman Wadsworth has the knowledge, resources and expertise to effectively navigate the Chapter 7 process.
