Susan Fuertes has over 25 years of experience in the bankruptcy courts in Texas.  She currently represents a Chapter 13 Trustee in the Eastern District of Texas, and she has many years of experience representing mortgage servicers and investors in the Southern, Northern, and Western districts of Texas. She has represented Chapter 13 Trustees, Chapter 7 Trustees, debtors, and creditors.  Bankruptcy is not something you should navigate on your own.  It's a complicated process with many unique rules and forms.  

If you need assistance with a small business Chapter 11, Susan would love the opportunity to speak with you regarding your case.  Some exciting changes to the Bankruptcy Code took effect in February 2020 that benefit small businesses, and these protections were further expanded by the CARES Act in March 2020. Please contact Susan to determine if a small business case is right for you.

If you are an individual or married couple, schedule an appointment with Susan to determine if a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy might be right for you.

If you are a creditor seeking representation in a bankruptcy matter, you should not attempt to navigate a bankruptcy on your own. Tight deadlines, specific forms - these are just some of the things that can be difficult when a business or individual causes you to become involved in a bankruptcy matter.  If you are a creditor, it is important to begin your involvement in the bankruptcy case early, as missing a deadline can have devastating consequences, including the disallowance of your claim. 

While a debtor or a creditor can legally participate in the bankruptcy process without being represented by a lawyer, it is not recommended, and it is probably not the best route for you.  Please call the office for a free 30-minute phone consultation to determine what may be best for your situation.
