|Attorneys at Law|
Bankruptcy and Workouts: If you've lost your job, had domestic or health problems, or just overextended yourself, debt collectors and collection attorneys can make your life a nightmare. Whether you're facing a foreclosure, garnishment or attachment, or you just can't pay your bills or taxes, we can help. We represent individuals and businesses throughout Maryland and D.C. in workouts and in Chapter 7, 11, 12 and 13 bankruptcies. Filing for bankruptcy will stop the harassing phone calls and letters. It will stop a foreclosure on your home, lawsuits, garnishment of your wages or attachment of your property. And in most cases, you keep all of what you have. Putting your life back on track and getting a fresh start—this is what we can help you do. We are also co-lead counsel in the $1.5 billion Norwest Mortgage Class Action now pending in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland. You can read the First Amended Complaint here.
Personal Injury and Medical Malpractice: One of our special areas of expertise is in personal injury and medical malpractice cases. A former insurance defense attorney, Mr. Weiss knows how to get fair compensation for your injuries. And we work closely with you and your doctor to make sure that you get the care and treatment you need.
Collections and Creditors' Rights: Getting paid is often difficult, and we are in the forefront of "creditor's rights," the lawyer's euphemism for collections. Representing commercial interests, doctors, hospitals and private individuals, we can help you get paid.
Business Law: An outspoken proponent of home-based business, Mr. Weiss has fought for fair treatment for and recognition of the special contributions of these economic growth centers. He is skilled in the organization of small businesses and in drafting contracts and documents that help protect you and your business.
Estates and Trusts: You need a will to make sure that your family is provided for, your children get the guardian of your choice and the IRS gets as little of your estate as the law allows. But you need more than this. You need good advice about what you should do. We can help you navigate through the thicket of often confusing laws to see that your wishes are carried out. Whether through wills, living trusts, living wills, or powers of attorney, we will help you set up an estate plan that does what you want and will protect your family.
