Creditor-Debtor Law

MPBA provides comprehensive counsel and advocacy for both creditors and debtors.

Whether involving routine trade debts, catastrophic losses, or money judgments, we have the experience to guide creditors to cost-effective solutions that maximize recovery.  We have experience with all manner of state law remedies, including but not limited to:

  • Prejudgment and Post-judgment Garnishment
  • Attachment and Execution
  • Supplemental Proceedings (aka Debtor Examinations)
  • Creation and Perfection of Liens, including Judgment Liens on Real Property, Material  and Labor Supplier Liens, Lis Pendens, etc.
  • Lien Enforcement and Foreclosure
  • Receiverships

We also have extensive experience in recovering assets that have been fraudulently transferred in an attempt to avoid collection. Our experience in the related practice area, bankruptcy, ensures seamless representation in the event that a debtor files for bankruptcy.

Likewise, where one of our business clients is the debtor, we have experience working with lenders and other creditors to reduce the debt, minimize the impact on the debtor and his or her business, and resolve the matter as efficiently as possible.  We frequently negotiate and structure creative debt solutions to ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients.
