“I utilize my understanding of business and knowledge of bankruptcy law to help clients thrive in the future.”
Knowledge in law and finance. With backgrounds in both law and finance, Attorney Jason S. Rigoli is able to bring the two worlds together in helping his clients efficiently navigate the bankruptcy process. Jason represents individuals, businesses and business owners in Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 proceedings, when unanticipated or catastrophic events lead to financial difficulties. Jason also represents trustees and practices commercial litigation, adding to the perspectives he offers clients seeking legal remedies.
Solutions that benefit the client. Jason quickly understands the financial and ownership structures of a business, how it operates, and what occurred to cause its problem. With a ready grasp of the client’s point of view, he can recommend a course of action in keeping with the client’s objectives. Jason does not assume that bankruptcy is always the right solution. Rather, he analyzes the problem, listens to the client’s expectations, and utilizes his insight to ensure that bankruptcy will work to the client’s advantage. Jason’s overall goal is to help clients make the best decisions about their futures, whether that involves reorganization to keep a viable business operating, or liquidation to provide relief and protection.
Outside-the-box thinking. An associate in the firm, Jason joined Furr & Cohen in 2011 after graduating from law school. Previously, he clerked for the firm while attending law school. Jason holds an undergraduate degree in finance, and welcomes the opportunity to utilize the breadth of his education in managing complex cases. A natural multi-tasker, Jason relishes thinking outside the box to provide his clients with creative solutions.
