Due Diligence

Our clients are engaging in more and more third-party relationships, which allow credit unions access to more products and services and allows for the benefit of external expertise. This outsourcing results in increased member services, competitiveness, economies of scale, increased delivery channels, and allows our clients to reach new members.

Bankruptcy

Representation of Creditors:

The lawyers of Sherpy & Jones believe in providing responsive service to its clients that enables them to navigate the bankruptcy system to their highest benefit. Our clients are able to successfully avoid unnecessary losses by receiving practical advice and guidance based on decades of combined experience. We are available to attend and question debtors at §341 meetings of creditors, draft and present reaffirmation agreements, and object to flawed Chapter 13 plans.

Our lawyers work to ensure that creditors receive adequate protection, that debtors obtain insurance covering collateral, and that Proofs of Claims are properly filed to allow for the full benefit of cross-collateralization, if appropriate. We frequently obtain relief from the automatic stay so that collateral may be reached and sold. While we concentrate on cases falling under Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 of the bankruptcy code, our attorneys also handle complex cases falling under Chapter 11 as well as Adversary Proceedings.

Foreclosure

Representation of Creditors:

South Carolina is a judicial foreclosure state. We pursue foreclosure for our creditor clients, including complex issues involving probate / estate property, quiet title actions, and the creation of easements to encumbered real property. Our attorneys are able to cure a whole host of problems created by a problematic mortgage closing or defective chain of title.

We also represent creditors with junior or subordinate liens on real property being foreclosed, in a defensive posture, to help ensure that the client’s rights are protected. Our lawyers are trained to represent judgment creditors in surplus funds hearings and file claims on their behalf.
