In 1991, J. Scott Bovitz and Susan M. Spitzer formed Bovitz & Spitzer.
Bovitz & Spitzer handles bankruptcy matters in the Central District of California: Los Angeles; Santa Ana; Riverside; Woodland Hills (San Fernando Valley); and Santa Barbara (Northern Division).
Bovitz & Spitzer represents management and equity of business debtors, business and consumer creditors, asset purchasers, and other interested parties in chapter 7, chapter 11, and chapter 13. Bovitz & Spitzer regularly serves as "local counsel" to other law firms and the "bankruptcy law library" to corporate in-house counsel.
Bovitz & Spitzer handles contested matters and bankruptcy litigation (adversary proceedings). For example, we represent clients in automatic stay, preference, fraudulent transfer, Ponzi scheme, lien priority, dischargeability, objection to discharge, and exemption litigation. We file and prosecute objections to chapter 11 and chapter 13 plans.
Bovitz & Spitzer handles bankruptcy appeals before the district court, the Bankruptcy Appellate Panel, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Bovitz & Spitzer is involved with debtor-creditor matters, assignments for the benefit of creditors, asset protection, and exemption planning.
Bovitz & Spitzer handles disputes arising under the Uniform Commercial Code (regarding the attachment, perfection, priority, and foreclosure of UCC liens on personal property).
While Bovitz & Spitzer primarily represents creditors, investors, and management, we will advise individuals about their bankruptcy options. Thus, Bovitz & Spitzer is (at times) a "debt relief agency." Prospective debtors: should not incur debt in contemplation of bankruptcy; and do not have to employ an attorney to file bankruptcy. Please see the discussion about "debt relief agencies" on our site.
Usually, there is no charge for an initial telephone call regarding a prospective legal matter. If we tentatively accept your case on the telephone, we normally set up a meeting to discuss strategy and tactics in more detail.
Please call to confirm our current rates. Sorry, but Bovitz & Spitzer does not accept credit cards.
