Bankruptcy

Some consumers and some business debtors respond to debt-collection efforts by filing bankruptcy. Whether the consumer or business debtor filed bankruptcy before or after the client placed an account with K&F, K&F’s bankruptcy attorneys can help.

K&F’s bankruptcy attorneys represent secured and unsecured creditors in Chapters 7 (Liquidation), 11 (Business Reorganization), 12 (Agricultural) and 13 (Consumer Reorganization, also known as Wage Earner) bankruptcy matters. We also represent creditors in the defense of preference actions and adversary proceedings, and prosecute non-dischargeability claims. K&F bankruptcy attorneys practice in Missouri, Kansas, and Southern Illinois, and, where necessary, in bankruptcy courts in other states.

Depending upon our clients’ needs and the nature of the case, K&F can offer fee options including hourly billing and contingent arrangements. In addition, recognizing industry trends, K&F offers flat-fee schedules for common bankruptcy matters, such as motions for relief from stay, proofs of claim, and objections to Chapter 11 and 13 plans. The expertise of K&F’s bankruptcy attorneys also supports the firm’s other practice areas when bankruptcy issues arise in non-bankruptcy matters. For example, where a debtor files bankruptcy to halt foreclosure or replevin proceedings, K&F bankruptcy attorneys can obtain relief from the resulting stay quickly and efficiently so that the proceedings may resume.
