Call (718) 340-3385 now to schedule a free consultation with our knowledgeable bankruptcy lawyer.

Know Your Options

Many NYC taxi drivers are struggling to make ends meet these days. Some are facing foreclosure, and others owe their lenders more than their medallion is worth. If you are seeking to get out from under the burdens of your taxi medallion loan, there are a few main options you can consider.

To get out of debt and have a fresh start, you may want to:

  • Renegotiate with your lender for a loan modification that lowers your monthly payments and encapsulates your past-due payments
  • File for Chapter 13 bankruptcy to obtain a manageable three- to five-year repayment plan
  • File for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, surrendering the medallion to your lender and attempting to discharge your future liability
  • Allow the lender to foreclose and retake possession of the medallion and file bankruptcy if they file a motion for a deficiency judgment

We understand that each medallion owner’s situation is different. During a free consultation, we can evaluate your circumstances to determine what option is right for you.
