Efficient Debt Collection Services in Tennessee, Including Contingency Fee Options

We can help you or your business to collect accounts or debts from people or businesses in Tennessee. Often, such assistance can be provided on a contingency fee basis, meaning our fees may be based on and payable from the amount actually recovered rather than on an hourly or flat fee basis. Our services range from formal demand letters and the filing of lawsuits, to the pursuit of garnishments, levies, and other avenues to collect and enforce judgments.

Creditor Representation in Bankruptcy

Protect Your Rights

When your customer, client, borrower, or debtor files for bankruptcy protection you need prompt and experienced representation to protect your rights and enforce your claims. We can assist you in recovering your collateral, collecting your accounts, and protecting your liens. We regularly represent creditors in Chapters 7, 11, and 13. Our comprehensive services include, but are not limited to, filing proofs of claim, lift stay motions, treatment of executory contracts or leases, objections to confirmation or discharge, and defense of preference claims.

Collect Out Your Out Of State Judgment

If you have obtained a judgment from another state against a business or person residing or owning property in Tennessee, we can assist you in enforcing that judgment in Tennessee. Because each state can only enforce judgments within its own borders, formal legal proceedings are usually required to collect judgments from sources in other states. We regularly file proceedings to domesticate and then collect judgments rendered in other states.

Foreclosure and Repossession

Experienced Legal Support for Foreclosure and Repossession Proceedings

We know that as a secured lender your first priority in case of default is securing and disposing of your collateral. Often, recovery of your collateral is hindered by a debtor’s bankruptcy filing. We regularly assist secured creditors in the repossession of personal property and the foreclosure of real estate collateral. When bankruptcy arises, we can help you recover or secure your collateral.
