Our Chicago Debt Relief Lawyers Defend Client Sued by a Creditor


Recently, our Chicago consumer law attorneys, Attorney Paul M. Bach and Attorney Penelope N. Bach asked the bankruptcy court to review a case for our client, Renato Casali. Casali filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy on July 31, 2013. Prior to filing, Casali opened a home equity line with Parkway Bank & Trust, a local financial institution. Upon discovering Casali’s choice to file for bankruptcy, the institution filed a lawsuit against him.

Parkway Bank & Trust stated that Casali made knowing misinterpretations when he sought relief from the loan. The institution claimed that one of their debts is considered non-dischargeable due to the United States code, 11 U.S.C. § 523(a)(2)(A). This code states that a bankruptcy will not release an individual from any debt in the form of property, finances, or services attained by fraud, false pretenses, or false representation. In the complaint, Parkway Bank & Trust attempts to explain that Casali did not provide accurate statements when he borrowed money from the institution.

However, Mr. Bach and Ms. Bach of Atlas Consumer Law argue that Parkway Bank & Trust fails to provide any evidence that can prove Casali made knowing misinterpretations when he obtained a mortgage loan from Parkway Banks & Trust. As a result, our Chicago consumer lawyers have asked the bankruptcy court to review the case and grant Casali the ability to discharge the loan by filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
