Paul Feinman has practiced in the areas of creditors’ rights and real estate law since 1989. A Lynchburg native and resident for most of his life, Paul attended Dartmouth College and graduated from Washington & Lee School of Law in 1986. He then practiced for two years in the Litigation Department at Jackson & Kelly, a large regional law firm based in Charleston, West Virginia. Paul returned to Lynchburg in 1988 where he worked as the Law Clerk for the Hon. William E. Anderson, Judge of the U. S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Virginia. After his clerkship, he re-entered private practice, now focusing his practice on the creditor side of bankruptcy. He also began developing his real estate practice, and later a substantial estate planning practice, which included federal estate tax planning.

Paul has been admitted to practice before the Virginia bar and the Federal District Courts for the Eastern and Western Districts of Virginia. His practice includes all facets of creditor representation, including foreclosing on collateral or crafting work-outs with borrowers prior to bankruptcy, and protecting a client’s interest if a borrower, tenant, or other related party has filed a bankruptcy proceeding. Paul also handles all aspects of commercial real estate acquisitions and loans.
