The American Board of Certification has announced that Bradley S. Salyer, an attorney with Morgan & Pottinger, P.S.C., has successfully completed the requirements for national certification in Creditors’ Rights Law. This achievement makes Salyer one of only two ABC board certified lawyers in Creditors’ Rights in Kentucky.
Creditors’ rights matters involve state, federal and bankruptcy courts, and legal issues such as secured transactions pursuant to the Uniform Commercial Code, creditors’ rights in bankruptcy proceedings, and commercial and consumer collections.
ABC certification recognizes lawyers who have met rigorous and objective certification standards in the fields of creditors’ rights law and bankruptcy through experience, substantive knowledge and peer recognition. To become certified, Salyer devoted more than 30 percent of his practice time and 400+ hours to creditors’ rights related matters over the past three years. He also earned 60 hours of continuing legal education and passed an extensive, day-long written examination covering creditors’ rights issues.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the best bankruptcy and creditors’ rights attorneys, former judges and law professors in the country,” said Salyer. “Fulfilling the ABC certification standards demonstrates my commitment to providing creditors with quality, cost-effective representation.”
Salyer’s practice at Morgan & Pottinger focuses on creditors’ rights, bankruptcy, commercial litigation, loan workouts, loan documentation and appellate law. He was appointed by the United States Trustee to the Panel of Chapter 7 Trustees for the Western District of Kentucky in 2017. He also leads M&P’s Bowling Green office and was instrumental in the firm’s efforts to open an office in South Central Kentucky.
Salyer joined M&P in 2009 after graduating from the University of Kentucky College of Law, where he served on the Moot Court Board. He is a member of the firm’s Policy & Procedures and Marketing committees.
