We have decades of experience in the area of Creditor Rights & Bankruptcy.  Primarily representing banks, credit unions, trade creditors, and other lenders/creditors, we have been involved in many Chapter 11, Chapter 7, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases, receiverships, out-of-court workouts, foreclosures, Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) sales, inter-creditor agreements and disputes, preference actions, and similar matters.  We practice in the United States Bankruptcy Courts for the Western and Middle Districts of Tennessee, for the Northern and Southern Districts of Mississippi, and for the Eastern and Western Districts of Arkansas, as well as in the state and U.S. District Courts of Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

Why Hire Our Firm?

BHAMM lawyers first talk with our creditor clients to determine their goals and to develop a cost-effective strategy, taking into account the expected outcome. Oftentimes settlement or other compromise can achieve a reasonable net recovery sooner than protracted proceedings, but when such resolution is not possible, it can be important to vigorously assert and carry out the client’s position while closely monitoring other developments as the matter goes forward.

One of our members, Paul Matthews, has been board certified in both Business Bankruptcy and Consumer Bankruptcy for approximately 20 years, and is one of only a handful of lawyers in the Tri-State Area who is board-certified in both subject areas. Paul is recognized in the bankruptcy law field by Best Lawyers in America and Mid-South Super Lawyers.
