Debt Collection

Debt Collection - Creditor Rights

Our corporate law attorneys are skilled in helping business owners establish collection policies in accordance with North Carolina and federal law governing debt collection. When lawful, routine collection procedures fail to produce adequate results, we are skilled and experienced litigators in the area of creditor rights and debt collection.

At Coward, Hicks & Siler, we work with creditors at all phases of the collection process. Our lawyers help protect the rights of creditors through collection litigation. We pursue collection of debts on behalf of our clients.

Judgment from a court of law in a creditor’s favor for debts owed by an individual or business is only an acknowledgement by the court that a specific sum of money is owed by one party to another. Collecting against a judgment can be a long-term, frustrating process. From leveraging debtor assets to assigning liens, we help creditors ensure the best likelihood of future judgment collection.

A consultation with one of our lawyers will help you understand your rights. Call and schedule yours today. We can help.
