Madeline A. Trainor

PARTNER


Throughout her years in practice, Ms. Trainor has represented Chapter 7, Chapter 13 and Chapter 11 Debtors before the U.S. Bankruptcy Courts in the District of Columbia and Virginia, including acting on behalf of debtors from the initial consultation and planning stages through discharge in asset and no-asset Chapter 7 liquidations; through confirmation and discharge in Chapter 13 Wage Earner Plans; through completion of Chapter 11 Reorganization Confirmed Plans (corporate and individual); and through the appeal process to the Fourth Circuit.

Ms. Trainor's practice includes defending clients against preference, fraudulent conveyance, and discharge litigation; as well as protecting clients from foreclosures. In representing debtors, she draws upon her own expertise, as well as the vast experience in the firms’ other practice groups to provide advice and counsel on matters arising in any chapter proceedings including public and private sales of assets, financing, restructuring of debt, determination of the validity and extent of secured liens of creditors, valuation of assets, analysis and prosecution of bankruptcy causes of action, and formulation and presentment of feasible and confirmable plans.

She has consistently represented creditors in Chapter 7, Chapter 13 and Chapter 11 cases, representing both individual and corporate secured and unsecured creditors, lenders, shareholders, and potential purchasers both in bankruptcy and workouts. In addition, she has represented Trustees in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 matters throughout her career.

Ms. Trainor is often referred cases from real estate attorneys, or counsel in divorce (or other domestic relations) practices, for consultation and representation when these areas of the law overlap or conflict with one another. She also litigates cases in Virginia and DC state courts involving issues in real estate, estates, and divorce.

Ms. Trainor has an AV® Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating possible.
