Our clients know the LainFaulkner Difference

From corporate executives and attorneys to judges and trustees, professionals who understand the intricacies of bankruptcy, litigation and situations involving challenging business issues recommend LainFaulkner.

United States Trustee

“I wanted to express my appreciation for the efforts made by LainFaulkner in this chapter 11 case. All parties acknowledged that with proper cash management procedures, this could be a successful business. With your firm’s intervention, the trust was able to confirm a feasible plan. Without your firm’s intervention, this would have been a chapter 7.”


Attorney, user of claims and preference service

“They are great to work with and have this [claims resolution and preference analysis] down to a science. When all was said and done, the Trustee ended up with approximately a 50% distribution rate for unsecured creditors – much better than predicted early on in the case.”


Correspondence received from Attorney, Texas-based commercial litigation firm
