Protecting Your Creditors’ Rights
At Klinger, Robinson & Ford, LLP, our legal services include assisting businesses and individuals with a wide range of highly technical collection matters in a cost-effective manner.
Claims In Bankruptcy
The creditor should contact an attorney as soon as they receive notice of bankruptcy from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. An attorney can help maximize the recovery from a bankruptcy estate, and verify claims are filed before deadlines expire. Let us file your proof of claim and monitor the case.
Claims In Probate
When a person dies owing money to a creditor, the creditor has a limited amount of time to file a claim in the decedent’s estate or to otherwise pursue collection. Let us file your claim in probate and monitor the case.
Foreclosure, Repossession And Replevin
The debtor stops paying. The creditor wants the collateral. Our job is to get that collateral while maintaining full compliance with state and federal laws and regulations in consumer, agriculture and commercial cases.
If a creditor’s collateral, pending collection lawsuit, or other matters become subject to bankruptcy jurisdiction, then there may be an adversary or contested matters requiring immediate attention. Further, if a creditor received payment prior to a debtor’s bankruptcy, the creditor may be facing a “preference” action.
Post-judgment garnishment of wages or bank accounts has become a difficult process in Iowa. Procedures vary from county to county. Further, a recent court decision called into question the constitutionality of Iowa’s garnishment notice laws, prompting ongoing revisions of the garnishment statute.
