Reputation and Results You Can Count On

Our attorneys have many years of experience in purchased debt collections and litigation and understand the importance of a reliable collection and litigation partner in order to maximize the return on your portfolio investment. Our regular appearance in numerous courts within our jurisdictions has allowed us to develop an in-depth understanding of each system and judge in order to achieve the best results for our clients. Our staff has relationships with court personnel who appreciate the fact that they are dealing with an experienced law firm who has a track record of handling matters in a timely and professional manner.

Large for Resources Yet Small for Intimacy

We believe in personal attention and are always accessible via phone, email or in-person to respond to your questions and provide status updates. We will travel anywhere that our clients’ needs dictate. To enhance your staff development and education, Weltman provides first-rate online or in-person educational seminars. In addition, we will help keep you informed of current laws and trends through our industry newsletters, blogs and client advisories.

Our Initial File Review is Critical to Your Success

We will review each file to identify the proper recovery stream. We can move a file directly into front-end contingency collections, send the file to our asset search department or go directly to suit. This screening ensures your files are handled properly and expedited quickly, saving you time and money.

Reporting and Communications

Weltman utilizes the Internet for e-mail and document transmission. Through our password-protected eClientNet, we provide you access to your account work product, progress reports detailing collection activity, performance statistics, inventory lists and accounting information.
