Emerald Coast Lawyers for Debtor & Creditor Bankruptcy

Offering Valuable Guidance and Advice in Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Creditor Rights

Making a decision to file bankruptcy is never easy. It should be a decision of last resort. Many times there are long-term considerations that must be addressed before the final decision to file can or should be made. Chesser & Barr, P.A. provides legal representation for both business debtors and creditors in bankruptcy.

Our bankruptcy practice focuses on Chapter 7 (straight bankruptcy or liquidation bankruptcy) and Chapter 11 (reorganization) cases. We represent debtors and creditors:

  • Individuals with complex consumer matters, including individuals who have debts related to business.
  • Corporate debtors.
  • Individuals and businesses that have been subjected to illegal collection practices.
  • Creditors in creditor rights matters including dischargeable actions and obtaining relief from the automatic stay.
  • Local counsel representation to out-of-state law firms with case in the Northern District of Florida. Representative clients in this area include banks, credit union, mortgage and finance companies

In addition to helping clients file Chapter 7 or Chapter 11 bankruptcy, we also provide representation to Plaintiffs and Defendants in adversary proceedings, including fraudulent transfer and avoidance actions.

Chesser & Barr, P.A. understands that a corporate debtor seeking to restructure under Chapter 11 will have unique business matters that must be dealt with in a timely manner. Our firm can assist business owners and corporate entities with all phases of restructuring, including taking the necessary steps to allow for the continued operation of critical business functions so that daily operations can continue.

We are a debt relief agency. We help individuals and businesses file for bankruptcy under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.
