Board Certified Bankruptcy Attorney

Largo Personal Bankruptcy Lawyer

Clearwater Chapter 7 & 11 Bankruptcy Attorney


My reputation is primarily that I am a debtor's attorney, committed to helping honest people get out of debt. I am a board certified bankruptcy attorney, Daniel J. Herman. For more than 25 years, I've focused primarily on bankruptcy law. I offer compassionate and caring counseling to clients regarding Florida bankruptcy cases and issues including consumer bankruptcy and commercial bankruptcy as well as complex or unusual bankruptcy cases, which other lawyers often refer to me.

Contact me at the law office of Daniel J. Herman, in Largo, Florida, at 727-584-8161 for creative legal solutions to your financial problems.

Practice Areas

I also represent creditors including corporations, individuals, family trusts, etc. when their account debtor frustrates collection by filing for bankruptcy protection. In such cases, my goal is to maximize bankruptcy laws for the creditor's greatest gain. As a testament to the quality representation I provide and the reputation I have gained, I have received and held for 15 years an "AV" rating* from the Martindale-Hubbell peer-review rating system.

My job includes the following:

  • Represent clients in Chapter 7 cases, Chapter 13 cases and Chapter 11 cases.
  • Properly assess and assert or defend claims in bankruptcy.
  • Determine amounts owed and legal rights.
  • Help creditors assess what actions are appropriate and financially reasonable.
  • Attend creditors' meetings with my client in cases I file to enquire about assets or transfers that may lead to higher recovery than is proposed by the debtor.
  • Determine additional rights and protection to maximize rights and recovery when creditor is secured by a lien on real or personal property.
  • Advise as to the extent to which further representation is needed.
  • Detailed discovery regarding assets, rights and transfers may provide more recovery to creditors.
  • Perform litigation necessary to preserve claims, collateral and rights.
  • Guide clients through understanding secured, unsecured and tax debt issues.
  • Help businesses with winding down and closing.

I represent clients to defend preference actions as well. Preference in bankruptcy involves a debtor attempting to recover payments made by the debtor to a creditor before the bankruptcy petition was filed. I defend preference recipients in preference recovery actions.

In addition to bankruptcy law, I also handle assignment for the benefit of creditors, in which a business owner has a business with value to sell as a going concern. When there would not otherwise be an interested buyer due to the debt that the buyer would have to take on, assignment for benefit of creditors involves the court approving sale for a buyer to acquire the business while avoiding creditors' pursuit after the purchase.
