At Berger, Fischoff, Shumer, Wexler & Shumer, LLP, our bankruptcy team will prepare you and your paperwork for your 341 meeting. Our experience has prepared us to know what the Court Trustees will ask for. Some paperwork may need to be sent in ahead of time and other times, paperwork needs to be presented at the meeting. Our Nassau County Bankruptcy clients and Suffolk County Bankruptcy clients are always well prepared. Since they are well prepared, our clients are seen in a better light than those that may not prepared by their attorneys, or those who inadequately prepare themselves.
