COLLECTIONS & CREDITOR
Tieman, Spencer & Hicks helps individuals and businesses collect money due to them. We assist a wide range of clients in enforcing their rights, including individuals dealing with a single debt, companies with several outstanding balances, and collection agencies with hundreds of files ready to move to the legal system. We realize that a creditor’s ability to protect its interests and enforce its rights quickly and aggressively may make the difference between payment in full and a sizable loss.
We produce results by efficiently guiding cases through all stages of the collections process, from sending demand letters and negotiating settlements, to filing lawsuits, obtaining judgments, and finally, registering judgments, filing liens and garnishing wages. We have obtained millions of dollars in judgments and for the past 10 years have regularly delivered payments of over $1.2 million annually to one of our largest creditor clients.
Our firm has experience in dealing with the various requirements of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act (MMPA). Our memberships in ACA International: The Association of Credit and Collection Professionals and the Missouri Collectors Association help us to stay informed of the latest changes in Federal and State law as well as trends in the industry.
Whether you are just beginning to explore your options or have already obtained a judgment our expertise can guide you through the legal system and deliver the money that you are rightfully due.
CONTACT OUR FIRM
David S., Area Operations Manager
“We’ve had attorneys who weren’t nearly as responsive as Lee’s firm has been for us. Our business can be complicated at times and we routinely deal with large national corporations. It’s comforting to know that any legal issue we have, big or small, that all I have to do is make a phone call and will get a helpful response that same day.”
Janey R. , Managing Member of Company
“Lee has been with us thru the thick and the thin of our business operations. We are currently in a substantial growth phase which has largely been accomplished by refinancing we were able to obtained when Lee drafted the paperwork to restructure multiple layers of internal ownership for us. We couldn’t be happier with our relationship.”
Marcia R., CEO of Company
“In today’s world, you need to be proactive in dealing with employment issues, and that is exactly what Lee’s firm has done for us over the years. Our company is in the health care industry and we employ approximately 200 people in different locations. Lee has counseled us on the ever-changing legal issues relating to employment law, helped us prepare/revise our employment handbook and represents us as needed when litigation has occurred in both state and federal courts.”
James L., Chairman of the Board
“The nature of an interstate trucking company requires an experienced lawyer being available at all times to evaluate and timely respond to a variety of situations and issues. Lee (and Ralph Hicks before him) has consistently been there for us over the years, as well as helping us with the transition to the next generation running our business.”
Gregg B., President of Company
“Lee’s law firm has represented our family businesses for years, most recently assisting us with a multi-million dollar sale of one of our companies and the complex buyout of a manager/shareholder in a different company. We couldn’t be happier with the high-quality legal representation we have consistently received from all of these attorneys.”
