New Jersey Bankruptcy Attorney

“A new opportunity in life, unhampered by the pressure and discouragement of preexisting debt.”

– Bankruptcy as described by The Supreme Court of the United States

Filing for Bankruptcy in New Jersey

Filing for bankruptcy is one of the biggest decisions that an individual, family, or business can make. You need the best bankruptcy attorney in New Jersey to represent you, and I want to be your bankruptcy attorney. Having represented thousands of individuals and businesses since the early 2000s, my expertise and reputation speak for themselves. I am a life-long New Jersey resident, practice Statewide exclusively in the New Jersey Bankruptcy Courts, and have an outstanding reputation with the bankruptcy judges, bankruptcy trustees, and with bankruptcy attorneys statewide. I am an expert in bankruptcy law and have the pulse on how the bankruptcy court, bankruptcy trustees, and local bankruptcy rules are operating at any given moment in New Jersey.

New Jersey Bankruptcy Lawyer

I am fortunate to have a thriving boutique bankruptcy law practice. You shouldn’t choose just any bankruptcy lawyer. And on my end, I want to ensure that we have an excellent attorney client relationship. My goal as your attorney is to be your zealous advocate, be there every step of the way to guide you through the process with certainty, and to explain what is a complex area of the law in plain English so you understand bankruptcy in clear, concise terms.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

Chapter 7 Personal Bankruptcy

The biggest hurdle to filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in New Jersey is qualifying for one. In a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, an individual or married couple is seeking a complete forgiveness of their personal debts with no repayment to their creditors. Over the past few years, there has been heightened scrutiny by bankruptcy trustees for individuals seeking this complete forgiveness. An in-depth consultation will determine whether or not you can qualify for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy, and if Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is the right option for you.

Chapter 7 Business Bankruptcy

The moment that a Chapter 7 Business Bankruptcy is filed in New Jersey, the business must immediately stop operating. In many instances, a business may no longer be financially viable, have large debts that cannot be satisfied, pending lawsuits, or is no longer operating. A Chapter 7 Business Bankruptcy can be a cost-effective method to wind down a business and stop business creditors and commercial landlords from collection efforts. A Chapter 7 Business Bankruptcy can also be an effective tool to address lawsuits against a business.

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy

New Jersey Bankruptcy LawyerIf you own a home, to guarantee that it is protected in bankruptcy, a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is necessary. In Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, you can repay as little as $150.00 per month to your creditors for 36 months. In exchange, you can protect your home and other assets. There are income limits to file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. In New Jersey, many individuals and married couples do not qualify for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy based on their household income, and Chapter 13 is the best way for them to reorganize their finances and get out of debt. Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is based in Federal Bankruptcy Law. However, critically, there are local New Jersey Bankruptcy Laws and local practice rules and nuances that determine Chapter 13 eligibility and qualification. Let me walk you through how Chapter 13 works and how it can benefit you. Please don’t jump to conclusions on qualifying for Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 Bankruptcy on your own.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy

You may be over the debt limits to file for a personal Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. Or, you may own a New Jersey business and want to reorganize your business debts or liquidate the business assets in an orderly fashion. If so, we will need to consider Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. Chapter 11 Bankruptcy can be cost-prohibitive. The filing fee for a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is $313.00. To file a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, the filing fee is $1,738.00. The costs for a Chapter 11 case are amplified accordingly. We can determine together whether a Chapter 11 will be beneficial.

Creditor’s Rights 

Are you a business owner or individual who has received a notice that an ex-business partner, business entity, spouse or ex-spouse, or someone who owes you money or property has filed a Chapter 7, Chapter 11, or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy? Or, is an individual or business threatening to file bankruptcy to deny you money owed, property, or rights? If so, I am here to represent you as a creditor to protect your rights and get you what you deserve. Reputation and experience are everything when hiring a New Jersey Bankruptcy Attorney. My statewide practice, dedicated exclusively to bankruptcy law ensures that I will know the parties involved in your matter and will guide you with expertise. If representation is necessary, I look forward to being of assistance. Many times, an hour of my time, to advise of your rights as a creditor can be sufficient.

Foreclosure Defense 

Are you delinquent on your mortgage? Have you been served with a Notice of Intent to Foreclose? Foreclosure Summons and Complaint? Foreclosure Judgement? Is a Sheriff Sale Scheduled? Foreclosure Defense and bankruptcy law go hand in hand. If an Answer to a Foreclosure Complaint has not been filed yet, I need to do so in a timely fashion per New Jersey State Law to protect your rights. It may make sense to apply for a loan modification. If so, I have the ability to analyze the specifics of your mortgage to determine the modification terms your lender is obligated to offer you. If you can afford to bring your mortgage current over 36-60 months, a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy may be your best option. In Chapter 13 Bankruptcy, you resume making your regular mortgage payment, your lender considers you contractually current, and the arrears are amortized out over 36-60 months. One a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy is filed, all foreclosure actions and Sheriff Sale actions are stayed (stopped).

Jonathan somehow made me feel great about declaring bankruptcy. During the lowest point of my life, all of my accounts frozen, I called Jonathan and... he personally answered and got my case filed within 15 minutes. He not only got all my assets unfrozen as fast as possible, but he got me a great deal and now I’m starting over with a clean slate. This experience almost makes me want to get sued for half a million dollars again, just so I can have the pleasure of dealing with Jonathan again!read more

I want to start by saying Jonathan made me feel so comfortable with the whole process of filing for bankruptcy. I literally text him 30 minutes prior... to the hearing with questions. He called me and walked me through what was going to be asked of me. ( with Covid-19 we had to do court via phone) Even by phone it felt like Jonathan was sitting right next to me. He was so encouraging, letting me know that I would still have a life post bankruptcy and it is not the end of the world. I can't say enough good (or should I say GREAT) things about him. There are so many other chooses for lawyers around that have millions of other clients that make you feel less then important. But, Jonathan and his assistant Tammy were with me every step of the way. I am glad that I had him handle my case.read more

Jonathan is an extremely knowledgeable and effective bankruptcy attorney. He makes the process of filing for bankruptcy as painless as possible. He... is very responsive to emails and phone calls. Aside from that you will never find a more warm, friendly, and caring attorney. He is truly an amazing human being.read more

I found Jonathan to be extremely helpful and easy to work with. Obviously, if you have to go to a bankruptcy attorney, you're a little stressed out.... But Jonathan's demeanor was very relaxed and really helped me feel more at ease with my situation. He always listened to what I had to say and made time for me to explain areas in which I was confused, whether by phone call or appointment.I noticed some bad reviews, but I can honestly say that to me, it sounds like they went to a completely different law firm than I did. From Jonathan to his support staff, they were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend Jonathan to anyone (including family!) who needs a bankruptcy lawyer.read more

He has the confidence and integrity that you would seek in an attorney .read more

Jonathan was very reassuring since our first meeting. He simply stated mortgage modifications were not his area of expertise but had a team that is... well versed in the subject. We were having such a difficult time independently working with our mortgage company. Although they led us to believe we had a temporary modification, right from the start they slipped in additional undisclosed fees after the “contract” had been signed. It has been an uphill battle ever since.We sought legal counsel and Jonathan agreed to assist us, just as we were contemplating “walking away” from our home (not an easy decision to have to consider). I cannot express how comfortable he made us feel through this process. He drew up a contract to represent us and while we SLEPT, he did just that — represented us, advised us accordingly and communicated with us only when necessary. We have had an experience with an attorney whom I literally had to argue and seek assistance from another attorney, in order to make him do that for which he had been consulted and paid. We only seek legal counsel when we are not being treated fairly and know there are laws and established processes of which we have no knowledge or experience, to protect us.Jonathan is not arrogant and we felt he genuinely was concerned about our ordeal. He did not know us personally; we were completely honest with him so that he could get a sense of who we are and advocate on our behalf.When dealing with professionals, there is nothing more comforting than being able to trust them and the process, to rest assured they are working on our behalf; unfortunately this is not always or even usually the case — we left his office flabbergasted! Not only had Jonathan brought us to a better position, but he vowed to continue advocating to bring forth a legal outcome that would put us in an even better position to not have to continue struggling to stay afloat.Do not trust the mortgage company, although the application process is absolutely the same, they may not make the modifications as indicated to the full extent of the law. We believe if it’s legally possible, Jonathan and the I. Mark Cohen Group will advocate to make it happen. Thank you Jonathan!read more

Jonathan worked extremely well with me over two years with my loan modification. He kept me very well informed during the entire process. Even when... he wasn't in the office and I had concerns, he contacted me with the answers I needed to help until he returned to the office or the problem was resolved. He has and continues to be extremely patient with me and my financial circumstances in my position to pay my bill. I would totally recommend his services to anyone.read more

Choosing to go bankrupt as a young 30 year old was one of the scariest decisions I had to make. As a single mom, with no financial help, and a lot of... debt piling up from over the years, it was my only choice. I remember the morning I took off of work to find a lawyer and after hanging up with so many, I felt like my decision was going to end up more harm than good. And then Jonathan called me back. From the minute we spoke, I knew I was going to be okay. I knew that his process was proper with the law and would keep me safe. Jonathan was always available to answer questions and even took on the job of easing my emotions. I am beyond thankful for his expertise in bankruptcy, his attention to detail, his availability, and for the actual care I felt as his client. I highly recommend Jonathan for anyone considering filing. He will not steer you wrong.read more

Who knew working with an attorney could be so much fun! Granted, no one puts the top down on their convertible and puts their puppy in the passenger... seat to go visit a lawyer. It's not a happy time. However, I was treated with the upmost dignity, respect, and professionalism. Jonathan really knows the law. I would happily recommend Jonathan and use his services again.read more

With his expertise, he was able to get us everything we wanted and needed in our "new" home. We were grateful for his time and quick responses. Thank you, Mark and staff of I.
