Areas of Law
Areas of Law Description
At Shaked & Posner, we can help you on the following legal issues:
- Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
Chapter 7 bankruptcy can help eliminate debts, including credit cards, medical bills, personal loans and telephone bills. There are many myths about filing bankruptcy. We offer a free initial consultation to give you the answers. We are well-equipped to help people all over New York, including Brooklyn and the borough of The Bronx, as well as in Westchester County and White Plains.
- Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help people who are behind on their mortgage, have significant equity, have disposable income or do not otherwise qualify for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 allows you to restructure your debt into manageable monthly payments and keep most of your property, including your house and car.
- Loan Modifications
With record numbers of homes facing foreclosure including in The Bronx, most lenders are willing to negotiate rather than attempt to sell a foreclosed home in a depressed real estate market. Our lawyers will represent you in negotiations with your lender to reduce, modify or change the terms of your loan.
- Bankruptcy and Your Credit
Many people are reluctant to file bankruptcy because they think doing so will damage their credit. In reality, the opposite is usually true. If you have serious debt, filing bankruptcy may be the simplest way to address your debt problems and improve your credit.
- Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
If you receive a collection letter from a debt collector or collection lawyer, our lawyers will examine the letter at no charge. If it is in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, our lawyers can sue the debt collector on your behalf and recover damages for you.
- Business Bankruptcy
As a small business owner, your personal finances may be closely intermingled with the finances of your business. If you are facing mounting debt problems, finding the right solution may involve talking to a lawyer who understands both business bankruptcy and personal bankruptcy.
- Preference Litigation and Fraudulent Transfer Litigation
Our lawyers are widely known for their nationwide practice in the niche area of defending preference and fraudulent transfer lawsuits. We have defended hundreds of clients throughout the United States, including Fortune 500 companies, small businesses and individuals.
- New York Divorce Law
Divorce in New York is no-fault, meaning you do not need a particular "ground" for divorce. However, matters such as spousal support, property issues, child support and custody need to be addressed. We help people all over New York with their divorce needs from Rockland County to The Bronx.
- Real Estate Transactions
Buying or selling a home, apartment, condominium, cooperative or commercial property is one of the largest transactions you are likely to make in your lifetime. Without legal advice, it can also be one of the riskiest.
