Langley & Banack has a very active business and personal bankruptcy practice. Our bankruptcy lawyers have been involved in virtually every type of bankruptcy related case, including litigation which arises in the context of bankruptcy and related proceedings. Langley & Banack is proud of its reputation and expertise in the bankruptcy area and frequently represents creditors, creditor's committees, debtors, shareholders, trustees, landlords, and other interested parties. Our bankruptcy lawyers also have experience handling municipal bankruptcies under Chapters 9 and 15 of the Bankruptcy Code, as well as experience handling issues under Chapter 13.
A bankruptcy lawyer is active in national, multi-disciplinary groups, including the TurnAround Management Association and the American Bankruptcy Institute. One of attorneys is a licensed CPA and another worked for a national accounting firm. Further, one of our attorneys has been a professor of law at two different law schools, where he taught Bankruptcy Law; the same attorney served as Chief Bankruptcy Judge for the Western District of Texas.
Langley & Banack's bankruptcy lawyers write and speak frequently and thus have earned a distinguished reputation at both the state and national levels. Several are listed in American Lawyer's and Texas Monthly's annual listings of best lawyers.
Although the Firm practices in many areas, because we very proudly represent consumers in bankruptcy matters, we are required by the Congress of the United States, at 11 U.S.C. §528 (a)(4) to state: "We are a debt relief agency. We help people file for relief under the Bankruptcy Code."
