Charity Bird

Charity began her bankruptcy and commercial litigation practice with a boutique firm in Atlanta, where she focused on representing small Chapter 11 business debtors and Chapter 7 trustees in bankruptcies and related litigation.

Charity also has extensive experience representing companies, lenders, and individuals in collections matters, lender liability suits, foreclosure actions, lien rights, and other general commercial litigation. Charity’s clients value her problem-solving skills and her ability to take charge in navigating them through difficult circumstances.
