A Strong Legal Ally For Lenders And Creditors
At Roderick Linton Belfance, LLP, we aggressively represent our clients in areas of commercial and retail debt collection litigation and the enforcement of creditors’ rights. Our clients include small and large businesses, providers of professional services (including doctors and other health care professionals), landlords, co-ops and condos, banks and finance companies, and even individuals. With law offices in Akron and Medina, we serve clients throughout Northeastern Ohio and beyond.
Strategic Debt Collection Litigation
We are skilled in collecting debts under loan agreements, negotiable instruments, promissory notes (in both secured and unsecured transactions), retail installment contracts and open accounts. We regularly litigate cases brought or defended under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) involving recovery of unpaid balances from the sale of commercial goods and in actions to recover property subject to creditor’s liens.
Different types of collections actions require different collections strategies. To gain the fullest measure of relief possible, some of the legal tools that may be invoked involve:
- Suit against guarantors
- Garnishing wages
- Seizing bank accounts
- Filing liens
At Roderick Linton Belfance, LLP, we listen to our clients and work with them in devising a strategy to secure the greatest monetary recovery possible in the shortest amount of time.
Experienced Consumer Lending And Lender Liability Litigation
At Roderick Linton Belfance, LLP, we have decades of experience defending local and national banks, as well as other financial institutions and lenders against claims brought by borrowers and in the commercial context. Such cases routinely allege violations of federal statutes such as:
- Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act
- Truth in Lending Act
- Home Ownership Act
- Equal Credit Opportunity Act
- Equity Protection Act
- Fair Debt Collection Practices Act
These cases may also allege violations of state consumer laws, and/or common law theories of fraud, unconscionable lending practices, breach of fiduciary duty and lender negligence.
Our knowledge of these areas of law and our experience in defending financial institutions in state and federal courts permit our attorneys to efficiently and effectively defend our clients’ litigation interests and achieve the desired results.
