Galveston County Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Lawyers

Help from the Only Board Certified Bankruptcy Attorney in Galveston & Brazoria Counties

Chapter 11 is used to help both businesses and individuals who struggle with debt but do not fit the requirements of Chapters 12 or 13. At John E. Smith & Associates, we have more than three decades of legal experience helping thousands of clients through the often complex process of Chapter 11.

We begin by listening to your needs to determine if Chapter 11 is right for your particular situation. It is usually designed for larger cases and can be more expensive and time-consuming, which is why determining the best course of action at the start of your matter will not only help you save time and money, but can find the most expedient path to a better financial future.

Our Galveston County bankruptcy attorney will help guide you through the legal process. Contact the firm online or call our legal staff at (281) 954-3161 to schedule your consultation.

What Is Chapter 11?

Also known as the “reorganization” chapter, Chapter 11 is typically used to allow businesses to stay afloat by reorganizing their debts to include additional revenue sources and cost-cutting plans. In Chapter 11, a debtor will keep possession of their assets and an automatic stay is put in place to keep creditors and debt collectors at bay while protecting the business or individual from liens and lawsuits.

This is an often complex process and includes a number of steps. Our Galveston County bankruptcy attorney can help you:

  • File the initial petition for protection under Chapter 11
  • Draft your plan for reorganization
  • Confirming the plan with the court
  • Amending the plan or repayment agreement as necessary
  • Complying with the terms of your approve plan
