The Press Room


For a creditor, receiving notice that a customer/debtor has filed for Bankruptcy protection, does not leave the creditor without recourse. The Bankruptcy attorneys of O'Reilly Rancilio P.C. evaluate the position of the creditor/client to determine whether they are unsecured or secured (to what degree) and then counsel the client as to their particular options depending upon whether the debtor has filed for bankruptcy protection under Chapters 7, 11, 12, 13, or even 15 of the Bankruptcy Code. Our staff is versed on the changes to the Bankruptcy Code and stays apprised of proposed/pending amendments.

Our attorneys are licensed and appear in all of the Bankruptcy Courts located in Michigan.
