What we do

Bankruptcy

So many creditors’ claims are victimized by bankruptcy cram downs, lack of adequate protection, repeat case filings, and other acts of debtors who depreciate and destroy creditors’ collateral and diminish recoveries. LRGR employs aggressive techniques to stab straight on at the heart of a debtor’s case, resulting in either surrender of the collateral or protection of the creditor’s interest throughout the case. LRGR handles a full gamut of bankruptcy issues that are presented in contested matters and adversary proceedings. Cases are monitored closely to assess each debtor’s compliance and address elements of default.

Real Property Foreclosure

The Real Estate Foreclosure department of LRGR employs Georgia’s non-judicial scheme for effectuating a quick foreclosure of the subject real estate, performed within Freddie Mac and Freddie Mae guidelines. LRGR handles foreclosure actions from notice of the default to recording the deed under power. LRGR also engages in any necessary title clearing to provide its clients with clean and marketable title. Such title clearing services include obtaining pay off information, clearing outstanding liens, filing title claims and conducting any required litigation in the superior courts of Georgia to effectuate a complete and valid foreclosure sale. The Firm handles defensive foreclosures, as well, to protect the junior lien holder’s interests. The Firm also handles post foreclosure matters, such as REO Real Estate Closings and Evictions.

Personal Property Foreclosure

LRGR employs Georgia's creditor-friendly laws designed to protect the lien holder from adverse claims of repairmen, towing companies and defaulting debtors who hide collateral. LRGR’s work is efficient, and the resulting writ of possession and order requiring turnover are obtained quickly and are enforceable in all counties of Georgia. In the event a debtor or party in possession fails to turn over the collateral, he may be held in contempt. Furthermore, the Firm utilizes the State of Georgia laws that insulate creditors from paying repair bills and storage fees in most instances.

Real Estate Closing

LRGR offers comprehensive residential real estate closing services for purchases, sales, and refinances throughout the state of Georgia. Our attorneys and staff maintain strong working relationships with agents, mortgage companies, and other real estate professionals throughout the state. We operate under Georgia title standards. Our law firm is centrally located in Atlanta, Georgia, with easy access for all real estate closing participants. LRGR provides information beneficial to purchasers, sellers, real estate agents, lenders, mortgage brokers and title companies.
