Chicago Debt Collection Lawyers

Creditors' Rights and Debt Collection Attorneys in DuPage County, Cook County, and Northern Illinois

Since 1983, Walinski & Associates, P.C. has successfully represented creditors for debt collection actions in Chicago and the surrounding areas. Our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of all areas of creditor's rights law, and we put our extensive experience to work to provide innovative and cost-efficient recovery solutions for each client we serve. We work with lenders of all types and sizes. Whether you need assistance with a mortgage foreclosure, judgment enforcement, credit card collection, or any other type of debt recovery, we can develop an effective legal solution, customized to fit your needs.

One-Stop Debt Recovery Solutions for Mortgage Lenders

The mortgage foreclosure process is complex and time-consuming. If all the legal steps are not followed and the paperwork is not in order, mortgage lenders can encounter greater difficulty bringing the process to a swift and fruitful conclusion. We have several decades of foreclosure experience, and we work closely with our clients through each step of the process. We thoroughly examine each individual case, taking into account all relevant factors to develop the best path toward a positive outcome.

For example, in some cases, a foreclosure alternative such as a loan modification, short sale, or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure might be the best approach. If your debtor has filed for bankruptcy, we can most often resume the foreclosure proceeding with a lift-stay motion. If you are a second mortgagee, we take aggressive steps to ensure your interests are fully protected and you are able to maximize recovery efforts, even though you are not in the first position on the loan.

We represent lenders not consumers

Personalized Debt Collection Attorneys in Chicago

Many law firms that handle high volumes of loans operate similarly to foreclosure mills or collection agencies. They hand off their loans to paralegals or legal assistants with limited experience, often yielding disappointing results. At Walinski & Associates, P.C., we are hands-on attorneys who work directly on each case. We value personal relationships, and we pride ourselves on client interaction. We stay in close contact with our clients, and we provide ongoing updates, so you are always kept informed. Our successful track record and commitment to providing highly personalized client service has helped earn us an 5/5 AV Peer Review Rating from Martindale-Hubbell, one of the nation’s premiere legal rating services.

Results-Oriented Chicago Creditors' Rights Lawyers

We understand that in the world of debt recovery, there is never a "one-size-fits-all" approach that works in all circumstances. With each case we handle, we have no pre-set agenda or formula; our only goal is to produce optimal results for our clients. Our attorneys are strong negotiators and skilled litigators. Whenever possible, we seek to negotiate a favorable settlement and avoid litigation. If negotiations break down, however, we are ready and able to aggressively pursue your interests in front of any and all available venues. If you are a lender (of any type or size) who needs to collect unpaid debt from a business or individual, contact our office today at 312-704-0771 for a personalized consultation with one of our experienced Chicago debt collection attorneys.
