Preference Defense Litigation

Los Angeles Preference Litigation Defense Lawyers
As a creditor, accepting payments from a debtor who files for bankruptcy within 90 days of a bankruptcy filing can create a liability to the bankruptcy estate in certain circumstances. Such payments may be the basis for what is known as an “avoidable preferential transfer”, a complicated situation that can lead to hefty legal expense and time spent searching for resolutions.

At Margulies Faith LLP our attorneys leverage nearly 30 years of experience defending preference lawsuits and handling bankruptcy litigation matters.  Our Los Angeles based attorneys provide representation to clients throughout Southern California and the United States.  Our experience allows us to provide you with creative guidance and the most cost-effective and favorable resolutions possible.
