Let us collect for you!

We don’t just go for the judgment, we go for the MONEY! And…we have a track record in settlements and post judgment collections to prove it.


    • Unlike many collection firms, we always make ourselves available to respond to YOUR questions and needs in a timely way.
    • Our firm has over 40 years experience in successfully handling collection cases.
    • We will be there with you from the initial claim review through your getting paid.
    • We have handled thousands of these cases and have secured favorable verdicts for our clients in nearly all of them.
    • We work to resolve cases without the need for your clients to appear in court.
    • We pride ourselves on our mastery of the Rules of Civil Procedure and the relevant statutes and case law.
    • Our understanding the complex nature of collections such as garnishments, bankruptcy, probate, and foreclosure allows us to be particularly effective in resolving these cases.


The cases we typically win:

      • Retail – We collect against consumers for all types of debts such as credit cards, medical bills, utilities, and many others.
      • Commercial – We handle secured and unsecured debts for small and large businesses. We have represented business such as banks and other lenders, landlords, equipment lessors, contractors, and insurance companies. These claims often involve a breach of contract, and we are as comfortable relying on a statement of account as we are with enforcing personal guarantees.
      • Foreign Judgments – We are happy to continue to assist attorneys, individuals, and businesses across the country to register judgments taken in other states and enforce those obligations in Missouri
      • Automobile Deficiency – We work with dealerships and banks when a balance remains due on an installment contract, or after repossession and re-sale of a vehicle.
      • Replevins – We get your stuff back! When our clients are entitled to possession of leased goods, we quickly secure an Order for Immediate Possession. We do this especially quick when there is a danger of someone destroying or taking your property. We then pursue the amount owed that remains unpaid.
      • Landlord Evictions – We represent landlords in evictions and collections. Please click HERE to visit this section.
      • Construction – We file mechanics’ liens on real estate, as well as pursue the lawsuit to enforce the obligation. We also use the Missouri Public Works Prompt Pay Act (section 34.057 R.S.Mo.) and the Private Prompt Pay Act (section 431.180 R.S.Mo) when applicable.
      • Post-Judgment – Some clients come to us already having secured a judgment, but have been unable to collect anything from the defendant. We can help you execute on your favorable result.

The 3 Main Steps of the Collection Process.

Step 1: We Review Your Account:

      • We do a detailed review of the information you provide on your claim, and identify and locate the people who owe you money.
      • We provide you with recommendations on the best way to proceed.
      • Once we enter you into our collection system, we provide prompt reporting on the progress of your collections.

Step 2: Negotiation and Litigation.

      • We work to secure payment from those who owe you money without the need to go to court.
      • If our demand for payment do not result in you getting paid, we will then file a lawsuit and proceed with litigation.
      • There are many, many, possible events and outcomes once we file the lawsuit. Our expertise allows us to effectively narrow down all the options that provide you with the best possible results.
      • We forward settlement offers to you and will negotiate with the defendant to achieve maximum payment.

Step 3: Collection.

      • If those who owe you money want an extended payment arrangements, we seek voluntary judgment securing your right to court enforcement.
      • If those who owe you money resist voluntary payment, we move directly towards obtaining judgment in your favor based on our vast experience and knowledge of collections.
      • We employ a variety of investigative methods and services to effect collections for our clients.
