We understand bankruptcy—from every angle.

Spiro & Browne is a Richmond, Virginia law firm specializing in bankruptcy and commercial litigation including bankruptcy adversary proceedings, receiverships, and trustee representation. We have over 50 years of combined experience working with individuals and businesses on both sides of the table, representing creditors as well as debtors in bankruptcy courts and litigating disputes in state and federal trial and appellate courts.

As bankruptcy and litigation attorneys, we deliver high-caliber representation with big firm experience, skill, and training—combined with the personal attention, access, and affordability of a small firm.

We know how bankruptcy works. We can help you decide which option is right for you—a straightforward chapter 7? A more complicated chapter 11? Or do you need something more specialized like a subchapter V small business reorganization or chapter 13 bankruptcy proceeding? We do them all.

We can help you find a resolution that lets you move on.

Sometimes, bankruptcy lawyers can find a way to avoid bankruptcy adversary proceedings. Maybe a creditor is giving you a hard time about repayment terms, but if you could negotiate those terms, you’d be fine. Or maybe all of your business’s money problems would go away if you could just get out of a franchise agreement that isn’t working or resolve another dispute or lawsuit. Maybe a receivership or nonbankruptcy workout is the answer you need.

Whether you’re trying to save your home, your business, or your self-esteem, we can help.

We have the expertise and know-how of a big law firm.

We’ve learned the ropes in big-name Richmond law firms. We have the top-notch training and experience you’d get with a big firm. We know the rules and the tricks. We know the ins and outs of the system. We know the players.

Working with larger firms involves bureaucracy and overhead, though. We started Spiro & Browne so we would have the flexibility to provide personalized service on our own terms.

We provide the personal service and flexibility of a small firm.

Bankruptcy and litigation can be stressful, complicated, and confusing. You need a lawyer who has time to walk you through the process, explain your options in plain language, and work collaboratively with you to find a solution that works for you.

From our side, we like to get to know our clients. As a small bankruptcy law firm, we have time to take your calls, listen to you, and answer your questions. You won’t ever be stuck talking to a lower-level associate who doesn’t have the answers. And we have the freedom to set up affordable fee structures that are as creative and flexible as you need them to be.

Whatever kind of financial mess you’re in, there’s a way out. We can help you find it.

We also represent clients in commercial disputes and fraud litigation.

Bankruptcy isn’t all we do. We handle all kinds of issues that need to be fought out in court, whether it’s a breach of contract, fraud litigation, or another type of commercial dispute. If someone or something is holding you or your business back, we’ll go to bat for you. We’ll help you develop and then execute a strategy to efficiently resolve disputes. If your matter needs to go to trial, we have decades of experience actually trying cases to both judges and juries throughout Virginia.

We serve as local counsel in Richmond and before other courts in Virginia.

We offer expert local counsel representation for lawyers and clients with matters before the federal and state courts in Virginia. We’re skilled in navigating the Eastern District of Virginia’s “rocket docket,” we’re familiar with all state courts in Virginia, and we know all the nuances of the bankruptcy courts. We’ve helped numerous large national firms navigate Virginia courts as local counsel, offering strategic guidance rather than merely passing filings along.
