Bankruptcy Services

“Our experience allows us to assess a situation and very quickly see the permutations of what might happen. We know what legal theories to apply and what negotiation tactics work under certain circumstances, and we use that knowledge to create highly strategic plans for our clients.” – Thomas S. Linde, Member

Schweet Linde & Coulson, PLLC handles all aspects of the representation of creditors, trustees and creditors’ committees in bankruptcy court proceedings. Services include motions to lift the automatic stay, objections to confirmation of Chapter 13 plans, reaffirmation agreements, proofs of claim and defense of objections thereto, defense of creditor’s interest to proposed sales free and clear of liens, defense of creditor’s interests in complex Chapter 11 proceedings including objections to disclosure statements and plans, reclamation actions and defense of creditors to avoidance actions commenced in bankruptcy court proceedings, including lien avoidance actions, preference actions and fraudulent transfer actions. SLC also routinely commences objection and exception to discharge actions on behalf of creditors when the facts and law warrant.

We understand bankruptcy law and know when to object when debtors test the limits of the law. With two principal partners having served as past Chairs of the Bankruptcy Section of the King County Bar Association, our reputation for excellence and in-depth understanding of the law precedes us in our work with other attorneys and in the courtroom.
