SBA 505 Closing Counsel
Collections and Judgment Enforcement
Here is a list of the areas in which Mr. Houts most often practices. Some clients seek Mr. Houts out for unusual legal matters because he sees his role as an attorney as that of a problem-solver, not necessarily a lawsuit-maker. Sometimes, you just have to use the courts, but we willl try to find a solution that doesn't involve giving the decision over to a third party, like a judge or a jury, if we can avoid it.
Primary Practice Areas:
Negotiated resolutions, work-outs, demand, and suit to collect on consumer and commercial debts. Collection of judgments by levy, garnishment, and all available legal means. Foreclosure and secured transactions. Assessment and action on fraudulent and unlawful bank transactions.
Representation in Bankruptcy Court if your debtor files. Unlawful Detainer as necessary and/or incident to collection proceedings.
NOTE: Training Seminars are available for Banks, Credit Unions, and other financial institutions on compliance, collections, Bankruptcy, and Fair Debt Collection.
Flexible service in closing your CDC's SBA 504 Loans and providing the required opinion letter. Limited review and complete closing assistance available.
