About Craig Palik

Craig represents individual and corporate debtors as well as creditors, trustees and equity interest holders and has handled all aspects of the representation of his clients in Chapter 7, 11, 12 and 13 bankruptcy cases. Craig has previously served as lead counsel in heavily litigated adversary proceedings and contested matters involving objections to discharge, preference claims, fraudulent transfer claims, equitable subordination, motions for relief from stay, title defects, disputed proofs of claim and appeals arising from there. He has also represents clients in state court litigation matters including commercial litigation, debt collection and foreclosure actions.

Honest and reliable, Craig helps his clients through the bankruptcy process with knowledge and patience. He is skilled in determining the best possible strategy to ensure his clients a positive outcome from their bankruptcy filing or litigation.
