Protecting Creditors in Los Angeles Bankruptcies

To recover money from debtors in a bankruptcy proceeding, you need a lawyer who knows how the other side practices. If you hire an attorney who has experience representing only creditors, he or she may not know the weaknesses in the other side’s case.

At the Enterprise Law Firm, in Los Angeles, attorney Giovanni Orantes represents creditors and debtors throughout Southern California. He helps debtors protect their assets from creditors in all forms of bankruptcy. He also helps creditors salvage what they can when a debtor files bankruptcy. We offer a free initial consultation to look at the challenges you face and give you honest answers about your rights and options.

The following pages provide more information about creditors’ rights in bankruptcy:


  • Rights of creditors: While the bankruptcy process is designed to help debtors, there are rules and regulations in place to protect the rights of creditors as well.
  • Property liens: Many creditors hire an attorney to represent them in a bankruptcy filing because they have a lien on real property. While bankruptcy’s automatic stay can stop you from foreclosing on property, you can file a motion for relief from the motion of stay.
  • Mechanic’s liens: If you have a mechanic’s lien on property that is involved in a bankruptcy proceeding, the law gives you priority over all other lien holders. Many people who hold mechanic’s liens do not realize the leverage they have.

We also handle bankruptcy litigation such as preference payment and fraudulent conveyance.
