Creditor’s rights in bankruptcy

Gary Nitzkin April 22nd, 2007 Comments Off

When a debtor files for bankrutpcy, I know enough to be mildly dangerous. However, when the bankruptcy gets messy, complicated and/or ugly, I bring in other counsel like Mark Shapiro, Tracy Clark or Stuart Gold.

Congratulations to Nitzkin and Associates

Gary Nitzkin July 13th, 2006 Comments Off

I freely acknowledge that self promotion on a blog is not appreciated by readers. However, I have decided to break that rule this time because it is important for attorneys and client to know when a collection attorney’s services are necessary. We just collected a $192,000 judgment that we received in April 2006. The judgment [...]
