Attorney Profile

Focusing his practice on bankruptcy and other debt relief-related matters, Robert N. Grossbart is an attorney at Grossbart Portney & Rosenberg.

Mr. Grossbart provides legal assistance to clients who have become overwhelmed by their seemingly insurmountable financial obligations. For many consumers, Chapter 7 is determined to be the best alternative. Under this type of bankruptcy, a debtor's nonexempt assets are liquidated by the trustee, with the proceeds being used to repay a portion of what is owed to creditors. Afterward, most of the remaining unsecured debts are discharged in a short period of time.

Many filed bankruptcy's led to litigation against creditors for a variety of reasons. I actually enjoy representing debtors who's rights have been violated

Mr. Grossbart also has extensive experience in Chapter 13 cases. These are generally designed for people who have a reliable source of income that can be used in a court-approved payment plan that lasts from three to five years. It also allows petitioners to keep their assets if the plan is adhered to, and at its termination, many of the remaining unsecured debt balances are discharged.

Apart from bankruptcy, Mr. Grossbart has assisted clients who are in danger of losing their homes to foreclosure, and in this regard, he has worked on loan modification proposals, mortgage abuse and forbearance. Mr. Grossbart has additionally represented victims of debt collection tactics that are prohibited by various federal and state laws.
