Moulton Bellingham's bankruptcy practice focuses upon the representation of creditors. Our bankruptcy lawyers have decades of experience representing creditors in bankruptcy cases under chapters 7, 11, 12, and 13 of the Bankruptcy Code. Moulton Bellingham does not represent debtors or Debtors-In-Possession. Gerald Murphy, Greg Murphy, and Doug James served as Chapter 7 Trustees, earlier in their careers. Our attorneys have also been actively involved in the Bankruptcy Section of the Montana Bar Association.
Our bankruptcy practice covers the entire state of Montana. Most bankruptcy hearings in Montana are conducted using the Bankruptcy Court’s video conferencing system, which allows attorneys to participate in hearings across Montana without having to travel. There is only one Bankruptcy Judge for the entire State of Montana.
