Judge Martin Teel, sitting in the United States Bankruptcy Court in Greenbelt, recently ruled in the case of In re: Mitchell that a law firm, who received timely notice of a bankruptcy filing, could not get a pass on its failure to file a timely proof of claim. As a result, the claim was denied and the law firm was barred from receiving any portion of the Chapter 13 plan payments. This case underscores the need to be aware of the claims filing deadline and procedures for filing a proof of claim. If you are a creditor in a bankruptcy case, make sure you consult with an experienced bankruptcy attorney!
