Consumer Collections

A Single Solution for All Your Consumer Collection Matters

The Consumer Collections Group at Weltman, Weinberg & Reis Co., LPA provides comprehensive consumer collection services to many of the Top 10 banks in the U.S. and some of the most well-known brand names in the world. An established and recognized creditors' rights firm, we represent clients of all sizes, in any industry, in all types of consumer matters. From large recovery portfolios down to individual, complex matters, our goal is simple – to leverage our experience and our resources in order to provide our valued clients with the consistent, effective recovery they need and deserve. 

Our recovery programs are designed with our clients' best interests in mind. We make sure our client teams have a thorough understanding of your unique business objectives before preparing a strategy customized to your portfolios. We can begin with front-end collection demands, review collectability and assets, or move it directly to litigation. Our services include skip tracing, asset searches, credit bureau checks, early out programs, collateral recovery (replevin), auditing, file reporting, and accounting procedures.
