Helping People Find A Way Out Of Debt Problems

Any person or business in financial distress has to make some hard choices. One of these decisions is whether to file for bankruptcy relief. An experienced bankruptcy lawyer can help you decide if bankruptcy or some other alternative will make a difference. At the Law Offices of Fintan L. Dooley, our Bismarck-based law firm works with individuals and small businesses across Western North Dakota. Our attorney, Fintan Dooley, has practiced bankruptcy law for many years, and has helped many clients find a way out of crushing debt.

Bankruptcy Is An Option, But It May Not Be The Only Option

Filing for bankruptcy offers significant protection to debtors. Despite these protections, it is not right for every person or business. When you work with our law firm, we will look closely at your situation to determine the best options for you. We will explore all alternatives before advising you to take this step. For businesses, some alternatives could include:

  • Assignment for Benefit of Creditors (ABC): In an ABC, a third party will be "assigned" assets and will be responsible for selling these assets and distributing the proceeds to creditors.
  • Appointment of a receiver: In this situation, a receiver is appointed to manage the finances of a company that cannot fulfill its obligations to its creditors.

If bankruptcy is in your best interests, however, we will take decisive action on your behalf. For individuals who qualify under the bankruptcy means test, Chapter 7 bankruptcy can help you get a fresh start.

Businesses may be able to file Chapter 7 bankruptcy. A Chapter 7 bankruptcy may be the right choice for businesses looking to liquidate.

Surface owners: Do you suspect your land or water has been contaminated by the oil industry?

Mineral owners: Do you suspect you have been defrauded or underpaid for oil or gas produced from your property?
