Chad A. Kelsch is the founder of Kelsch Law Firm P.A. and focuses his practice in the following areas:
(1) Bankruptcy and Creditor/Debtor Rights
Chad has extensive experience in all facets of bankruptcy and on behalf of a wide range of different players in the bankruptcy arena. He has represented individual and business debtors, bankruptcy trustees, creditors, and unsecured creditors’ committees in Chapters 7, 11, and 13. Some of Kelsch Law Firm's clients include Scheherazade Jewelers, The Happy Gnome, and All American Readers. Chad has experience in seeking/defending lift stay motions, seeking avoidance of and defending fraudulent transfer and preference claims, filing proofs of claim, filing bankruptcy petitions on behalf of individual and corporate debtors, and prosecuting/defending discharge and exemption objections. In addition to bankruptcy representation, Chad assists clients with debt negotiation, asset protection, judgment enforcement, and offers in compromise.
(2) Real estate
In his real estate practice, Chad has helped guide clients through foreclosure, short sales, deed in lieu negotiation, boundary line issues, title issues, contracts for deed, purchase agreement non-disclosure, and association liens/violations. There is often quite a bit of overlap with bankruptcy and real estate, so the fact that Chad has extensive experience in both is of great benefit to his clients.
(3) Construction law
Chad works with contractors and homeowners embroiled in construction law disputes, often involving mechanic's liens. Placing himself in the shoes of his clients, Chad applies a creative problem-solving approach to efficiently bring resolution to property improvement disputes that can quickly grow very expensive. He has also represented contractors in ERISA-related litigation with local unions, and served as an expert at trial.
