Former Georgia county commissioner files for bankruptcy

lawyer in a lawyers library

The former Gwinnett County commissioner who stepped down after being accused of bribery and influencing votes has now filed for bankruptcy, according to an article in the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. Kevin Kenerly opted to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection instead of a Chapter 13 filing. He likely made that choice because of his level of debt did not comply with the debt limits set forth in the Chapter 13 bankruptcy laws.

In his bankruptcy filing, Kenerly reported assets of less than $50,000 and debts of more than $3.5 million. Those debts include a $1.6 million mortgage on a Georgia mansion, which is currently listed for sale for $2.8 million. He also owes nearly $6,000 on unpaid condominium association dues for a Florida vacation home and more than $65,000 in car loans for three separate vehicles, all of which were purchased in 2009.

The newspaper reports that Kenerly filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on the first Monday of this month. Because people who file on that first Monday are generally attempting to avoid having their home foreclosed upon on the first Tuesday of the month, the filing may be a sign that his home is nearing foreclosure. However, Kenerly has not confirmed that suspicion.

Kenerly is currently facing criminal charges after a 10-month investigation grand jury investigation reportedly found that he had been overpaying for parcels of land to be used for county parks and benefiting from his actions. He stepped down from his position in November 2010 after serving as commissioner for 16 years.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I contacted getting old and getting old regarding some old tax debt and credit card debt that I needed to address and had been putting off. miss Irving in the office was very very nice and put me at ease. I met with Jaime Gingold. She was very nice and explained the procedure to me and what would be left owing to the Internal Revenue Service and the State of Georgia after my case was done. My case has now been completed and I am on my way to a new start. Thank you Gingold and Gingold for all of your help.
