Maryland and Virginia Trial Lawyer
The bankruptcy court presents an interesting alternative to state court, federal court and specialty courts (such as the various tax courts) in some situations.
Bankruptcy courts, of course, provide a forum in which to decide bankruptcy-specific matter such as the dischargeability of specific debts by the debtor.
However, the bankruptcy courts can also provide a forum to litigate other issues one would not necessary expect such as tax claims and, importantly in the current environment, claims related to mortgages under the federal Truth in Lending Act (TILA) and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA).
When you meet with our office, we can discuss whether this option has advantages in your particular situation.
