“I want my clients to fully understand the problem at hand and all solutions that are available. I am assertive in pressing for the best strategy and plan to extricate my clients from their financial problems. I am looking to give my clients hope of a good financial future.”

About Jim Greenan

As one of the best bankruptcy attorneys in the State of Maryland, Jim has been successfully assisting his clients with their financial matters for over 40 years by developing a strategic action plan that is personalized and thorough.  Jim has represented and advised all types of businesses including construction companies, government contracts, hotels, fitness facilities, IT firms, golf courses and medical practices, to list a few, through complex and high-profile Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.  He also has extensive commercial litigation experience representing banks, lenders, financial institutions and creditors in state and federal courts in Maryland, D.C. and Virginia.

Jim’s practice is focused on consumer and business bankruptcies and reorganizations, with an emphasis on restructuring the finances of businesses and individuals. Jim is committed to guiding his clients through a plan that takes all possible outcomes into consideration before implementation, and strives for a solution that is in their best interest. 

Jim leads a team of lawyers with vast experience in restructuring business and individual finances. He and his team have a tradition of providing the highest standards of client service and responsiveness. Personalized and individual attention is based on a team approach, allowing clients to benefit from the combined expertise and years of experience.

Outside of the office, Jim stays active hiking, climbing, golfing and kayaking. He says “I love to climb mountains, but not the Everest type! My favorite climbs are in the mountains of Colorado, Utah and Wyoming.”
