SA&P has a high volume bankruptcy practice that offers the features association clients need:  Economical, creative and timely protection of association rights in bankruptcy.

Effective representation in bankruptcy requires not only knowledge of local bankruptcy practice, but also the experience and reputation built up by years of working with the bankruptcy debtor's bar, Chapter 13 Trustees and Chapter 7 Trustees.  Bankruptcy practice frequently involves negotiating deals among the debtors and multiple creditors.

We use the latest technology to ensure our associations are always aware of the status of their cases.  We have extensive experience with association accounting software commonly utilized by association management agents.

We offer flat fees on various bankruptcy procedures, and are always cost conscious in the handling of every collection matter.
