After 80 collective years of practice, we are more passionate and committed to our clients’ futures than ever before.
Flexible & Accommodating
The Small Business Reorganization Act of 2019 has changed the game for small business owners who need to file bankruptcy. We have devoted our time and resources to understanding every detail of this act, and we are fully prepared to help small businesses derive the same level of success through Chapter 11 bankruptcy as their corporate counterparts.
If you decide you would like to avoid bankruptcy and/or litigation, we can help you navigate out-of-court debt restructuring. Whether we negotiate with your creditors, conduct informal liquidation, or help you obtain consolidated loans with lower interest rates, you can trust us to provide counsel backed by thorough planning and meticulous attention to detail.

We understand that debt can place an unbearable strain on individuals and their families, often leading to marital, physical, and psychological distress.

LSAS Attorneys is also one of the few firms in South Florida that represents borrowers saddled with student loan debt and facing Administrative Wage Garnishments. While most creditors need to obtain a court order to levy your bank account or deduct from your paycheck, the government can commence wage garnishment any time after you default on your student loans. Our team can help you protect your funds, advocate for your rights, and investigate alternative methods of debt relief, including a potential bankruptcy hardship discharge.
