Need a Collections Attorney?

Attuned To Clients’ Legal Needs

Collections cases can arise from a number of scenarios. Perhaps you loaned money and were never paid back. Perhaps you loaned money for an investment that turned out to be nonexistent or far different than what was presented to you. Perhaps you were cheated, taken advantage of, defrauded or otherwise wronged.

Fortunately, the law provides a path to recourse in such situations. Through a collection lawsuit, you may be able to recoup your losses. In many cases, going the court is not necessary; the very act of filing a suit establishes powerful leverage for negotiating a fair settlement.

At Gallagher Krich, APC, our San Diego-based collection attorneys represent plaintiffs in all types of collection cases, including:

Our lawyers have more than 23 years of combined experience helping individuals and businesses obtain recovery. We are skilled in litigation, settlement negotiation, mediation and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. Recently, we settled a collections case for $100,000.

We are creative problem-solvers who are adept at formulating effective strategies. To discuss your case with one of our lawyers during a free consultation, please contact us using the form below or at 858-926-5797.


Unlicensed Contractor Claims and Judgment Collections

In California, individuals who unknowingly hire unlicensed contractors are entitled to recover all funds they paid to the contractor. We represent clients seeking such recovery.

We also represent judgment creditors who are seeking to enforce their judgments. The collection process in such cases may involve engaging in a judgment-debtor examination, which is similar to a deposition. Because the examination may be central to your collection claim, it is to your benefit to engage an attorney to represent you.

At Gallagher Krich, APC, our lawyers are known for their zealous advocacy of client’s causes as well as their civil and courteous approach. We take a team approach to solving problems. As a small firm, we provide personalized attention that is attuned to each client’s unique needs.

What was thought to be a simple breach of contract turned into a nightmare. Through their tenacity and their deep knowledge of the law, we were successful. There is no reason to look any further as you will not get any better representation than this firm. I highly recommend them and strongly suggest that if you are considering starting a business or are already managing one, this firm will guide you, avoiding the troubled waters businesses sometimes find themselves in.

Johnny Nitti helped us with our estate plan. He was very meticulous while drafting the plan and spent enough time to explain the details to us. He filed the deed with county recorder and paid for the fees himself. Overall, Johnny did a great job and we definitely plan to work with him in the future for any updates to our EP.

Look no further. I came to Tom Gallagher with what I thought to be a simple contract law breach. It was because of the tenancy and knowledge of the law that Tom brought to the table and is the reason that we prevailed and I was able to recoup the losses I had recognized. I cannot give a higher recommendation for this group. It is not just contract law either. I would recommend this group for any of your potential legal issues. Their excellent knowledge of the law and their skills will help to prevent potential issues. Use them for all your personal or cooperate needs. You will not be disappointed.
