Our firm’s attorneys bring more than 80 years of legal experience and regular contact with its credit union clients. This ongoing relationship means clients’ needs are regularly reviewed and met, often preventing expensive problems from arising in the first place. Our approach keeps credit union’s money where it belongs: with the credit union and its members.
We have experience in advocating for clients in bankruptcy-related litigation matters, including avoidance actions, objections to discharge, dischargeability actions, preference claims, subordination claims, plan confirmation objections, relief from stay motions, and other disputes under the Bankruptcy Code. In addition, we regularly represent clients in breach of contract cases, actions under guaranties, replevin actions, and fraudulent transfer claims. Lustgarten & Roberts advises its clients with respect to newer regulatory concerns such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and other federal and state regualtions.
