Practice Areas



Chung & Press aggressively represents our clients faced with bankruptcy matters. We have substantial experience representing parties on all sides of bankruptcy cases, including trustees, secured and unsecured creditors, and business and consumer debtors, in cases under Chapters 7, 11, 12 and 13 of the Bankruptcy Code. We handle matters involving plan confirmation issues, secured creditors’ efforts to obtain relief from the automatic stay, objections to discharge for fraud and other misconduct, preference and fraudulent transfer litigation, lien avoidance, exemption disputes, and all other areas of bankruptcy law.

Because we provide bankruptcy services to consumers, among others, we have been designated a Debt Relief Agency pursuant to federal law. We help people file for bankruptcy protection and relief under the United States Bankruptcy Code.
