Personal Property Disputes

Personal property issues can arise in the context of many types of disputes, such as bankruptcy and creditor actions, insurance disputes, business valuation disputes, and torts. The fundamental issues at the heart of such disputes typically involve either the value or the financial damages related to the personal property involved.
