Because filing for bankruptcy can lead to a clean financial slate, the federal government doggedly pursues alleged abuses of the bankruptcy process. Filers are required to list all of their assets and debts. In a Chapter 11 filing, a business must present a plan for how it will reorganize. Making errors in the bankruptcy filing or the reorganization process can lead to fraud-related charges for:
- Hiding assets when filing for bankruptcy
- Giving false testimony about hidden assets
- Abusing power as debtor in possession
With previous experience litigating a large Chapter 11 case in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Joe has strong knowledge about the bankruptcy process. He has used this knowledge to help people facing federal charges related to bankruptcy resolve their cases.
