In this week's episode, we interview Samantha Dammer, owner of Tampa Law Advocates to discuss Chapter 7 Bankruptcy for businesses.
Samantha has been practicing just as long as I have - 18 years as of the recording of the podcast episode, and has been practicing bankruptcy in Florida for 10 years.
Some of the issues we discuss:
- When would a Chapter 7 be appropriate for a business
- Why would a business want to file bankruptcy
- The benefits (and some drawbacks) to filing a business Chapter 7
- The mechanics of a business Chapter 7
- And other topics
You can contact Samantha at 813-288-0303 or visit her website at www.tampalawadvocates.com.
In this week's episode, I welcome my friend Matt Lapointe, an attorney with the firm Blalock Walters in Brandenton, FL.
Matt and I were talking recently about the number of clients I have who all fear being taken to prison for failure to pay a debt - called debtor's prison. In fact, debtor's prison no longer exists and so Matt, a self-described history buff researched the issue of debtor's prison and we discuss this history of debtor's prison in this week's episode of the podcast.
You can reach Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org or 941-748-0100. Matt focuses on corporate and transactional law (meaning he does not go to Court, although he has attorneys in his firm who do if necessary).
I found an interesting article about success rates in Chapter 13, reorganization cases that I summarize in this week's episode.
For purposes of the article and podcast, "Success" means that the debtor completed all payments in his Chapter 13 bankruptcy. The results are interesting in determining:
- Should you file individually or jointly with a spouse?
- Should you file on your own or with an attorney?
- What are the Success Rates on your second chapter 13 (after the first one was unsuccessful).
Please let me know what you think of this statistical analysis, and if you want a free copy of the report, please contact me at Shawn@Yesnerlaw.com.
