    Attorney Profile

    Focusing his practice on bankruptcy and other debt relief-related matters, Robert N. Grossbart is an attorney at Grossbart Portney & Rosenberg. From the firm’s offices in Baltimore, Maryland, the city in which he was born and raised, he represents clients in the greater metropolitan area and throughout the state. Admitted to practice in Maryland, Mr. Grossbart is additionally admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States.

    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.

    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. His successful track record has earned him an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a 10.0 “Superb” peer review rating through Avvo, among other accolades.

    *AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell® is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Rating™ fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
