We can represent you in Federal bankruptcy court to get relief from the automatic bankruptcy stay. The stay prohibits you from filing an eviction or attempting to collect past due rent, unless you do it with the permission of the bankruptcy court. If you are an Arizona commercial landlord, the automatic stay bars you from locking the tenant out of the property unless you get relief from the stay.

If your tenant has filed a Chapter 7, or Chapter 13 bankruptcy the fixed fee to obtain relief from the stay is $650. This is the only fee in most Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 cases. If the matter is set for an evidentiary hearing, the you will be billed on an hourly fee basis for preparation for the hearing and representation at the hearing. The vast majority of motions for relief from the automatic stay in Chapters 7 and 13 cases are resolved without an evidentiary hearing. We can advise you up front, whether or not your matter is of the type which might get set for hearing.
If your tenant has filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the advance fee is $750 and all legal work on the matter will be billed at an hourly rate. The amount of legal work required to resolve a Chapter 11 case is variable. It depends on whether or not the client wants to work with the debtor during the reorganization, or seek relief from the stay.
