Consumer and Commercial Debt Experts

Why hire A debt Collection Specialist?

Debt collection is a highly specialized field of practice with its own unique laws, rules, and terminology. Many people without any legal education may understand what a Plaintiff and Defendant are in a lawsuit, but few people know, or have heard of, the terms “replevin,” “writ of execution,” or “garnishments.”

Both federal and state law is frequently enacted in the debt collection area.  As specialists, we keep abreast with changes in the law so that we can help you as efficiently as possible

At Halpern Cottrell Green, we take a different approach. We strive to be available for clients and consumers during business hours, and that everyone who contacts Halpern Cottrell Green can easily discuss their file with an attorney or staff member.
