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

What is cash collateral? Perhaps the best starting point to understanding the concept is with a relatively common example. Suppose the debtor has a rental property encumbered by a mortgage. The note undoubtedly has an assignment of rents provision. This means that the creditor has a lien against the debtor’s...
