Nicholas Gebelt Bankruptcy Attorney - Whittier, CA

My name is Nicholas Gebelt, and I’m a bankruptcy attorney who represents both debtors and creditors here in Whittier, California.

Let me start by talking about what I do for debtors because most of my practice focuses on helping them. I file for bankruptcy protection under Chapters 7, 11, and 13, either to get rid of debts entirely, say in the Chapter 7, or to make the paying of those debts — in whole, or in part — a manageable process in either Chapter 13 or Chapter 11. In addition, I do Subchapter V bankruptcies. Subchapter Vs are somewhat streamlined versions of Chapter 11s.

I also represent debtors in bankruptcy litigation, either in adversary proceedings — lawsuits in the Bankruptcy Court — or in contested matters. I have a very good track record. Many of the adversaries involve challenges to the discharge of a particular debt or, to the entire bankruptcy, as well as disputes over assets. If you are a debtor in need of representation, I can do a very good job for you. Read More
