NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Weltman, Weinberg & Reis Co., LPA, a full-service creditors' rights law firm now in its 88th year of client service, is pleased to announce it has been honored as the recipient of the 2018 National Creditors Bar Association (NCBA) President's Award.
The award is given annually to the firm that has demonstrated significant leadership in the creditors' rights industry. Weltman was selected as this year's winner in recognition of its work defending the firm – and the industry at large – with regard to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
“We are truly honored and humbled to have been chosen by the NCBA to receive such a prestigious award,” remarked Weltman Managing Partner Scott S. Weltman. “This represents continued vindication for our firm, since emerging victorious in July in the lawsuit brought against us by the CFPB. We are proud of our operation and the reputation we have built, and would like to thank the NCBA for this recognition.”
Mr. Weltman was on hand to accept the award, along with Shareholder Charles G. Pona and National Director of Collections David B. Tommer. It was presented at the NCBA 2018 Fall Conference & 25th Anniversary Celebration in Nashville, Tennessee.
