Biography

Chad Van Horn, Esq. is a South Florida business leader and founding partner attorney of Van Horn Law Group, P.A.

Through a combination of dedicated philanthropy, spirited entrepreneurship and legal expertise, he applies his resources and network to helping people—whether it's through his board leadership with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward County, his efforts developing startup ventures that bring jobs to the local economy, or practicing bankruptcy law to provide solutions to economic hardship.

While his volunteer work and entrepreneurial spirit play a major role in his life, Chad's success as the founder of Van Horn Law Group, P.A. has garnered him significant praise in the legal community. Chad, a Florida State Bar-certified attorney since 2009, started working in bankruptcy law as a law clerk in 2007 while he was attending law school at night.. A testament to his work ethic, Chad quickly made a name for himself and eventually established Van Horn Law Group, P.A. to utilize his skill in a way that would better serve individuals and businesses throughout South Florida dealing with the pressures of debt, foreclosure and loss. Chad's legal acumen extends beyond bankruptcy, leveraging extensive proficiencies in varied areas of law, including business and real estate transactions, commercial and real estate litigation, loan modifications and landlord-tenant disputes.

Chad's work in the legal system has been applauded by both his clients and his peers. He is a recipient of the AV Preeminent Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, an online information and rating service for attorneys across the nation. This distinction, which is the highest possible rating given by Martindale-Hubbell, is a reflection of Chad's hard work and commitment to excellence. Van Horn Law Group is only one of the many entrepreneurial endeavors in which Chad has achieved success.

Legal Answers
21 Questions Answered
Q. My husband and I paid for a chapter 7 bankruptcy but never ended up filing, can I get the money back from the attorney?
A: Did you sign a retainer or engagement letter? If so, you should review that to determine your rights. If the fee is non-refundable you would not have a right to get it back but the attorney may work with you on a partial refund.
Q. Can I file bankruptcy if I have a judgement against me that I can't afford to pay.
A: Absolutely. Judgments are one of the main reasons that individuals chose to file bankruptcy. You may want to move quickly as once the creditor receives the judgment, they can engage in post-judgment activities like garnishment or seizure of assets.
Q. Can I apply for a loan and still file for chapter 7 if I am denied the loan?
A: Applying for the loan will have no impact on your bankruptcy filing. This happens quite often as people try to avoid bankruptcy by getting a consolidation loan.
