The Law Offices of Craig A. Burnett
assists clients with filing bankruptcy
in Sonoma County, helping them choose the best options and meet all requirements.
Bankruptcy falls under federal jurisdiction, managed through a network of 94 U.S. judicial districts with bankruptcy courts that review filings and hear motions. While the public may think in terms of Sonoma County bankruptcy law, these laws are not locally or state generated, with the exception of California laws for bankruptcy property exemptions. Bankruptcy laws in Sonoma County are based on the United States Code, Title 11—Bankruptcy, the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act (BAPCPA) of 2005, and other federal laws regulating bankruptcy.
When final judgments, decrees, and orders are adverse to bankruptcy petitioners, their lawyers may immediately appeal on their behalf. Because appeals must adhere to applicable bankruptcy rules and case laws, legal experience and expertise is instrumental for success.
Attorney Craig A. Burnett has 25 years of experience dealing with bankruptcy law and appeals, and devotes his practice exclusively to this area of law.
