Carefully Handling Collections For Businesses

Person 2

Collections work involves the recovery of funds on open accounts, promissory notes, or breaches of contract.

The law office of Weems, Schimpf, Haines, Shemwell & Moore (APLC) is one of the most experienced in the Shreveport area in the collection of debt and in creditor representation. The business law firm has represented institutional clients with annual collections in excess of four million dollars, as well as individual clients collecting on small open account debts.

Our Shreveport collection attorneys handle all phases of the collection process, from giving proper notice to the debtor through filing suit, to obtaining a judgment in court, to collection on that judgment. We are experienced in registering foreign judgments, handling judgment debtor exams, and filing garnishments and foreclosures.

Creditor representation extends to handling matters in bankruptcy court where the firm’s attorneys regularly represent both secured and unsecured creditors and file proofs of claim on behalf of clients. Our attorneys are experienced in representing the rights of creditors in Chapter 7, Chapter 11 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, and are very knowledgeable about the plan confirmation process.
