We have helped our clients negotiate and reorganize millions of dollars of debt, avoid foreclosure, preserve company assets and continue business operations.  In fact, we are one of the few firms in the Pacific Northwest that has significant experience representing farmers and agricultural businesses in Chapter 12 bankruptcy proceedings.

When our clients are creditors, we help them recover amounts owed under contracts and business disputes through private mediation, arbitration or litigation in state and federal courts. Our attorneys have helped our clients collect millions of dollars owed to them through a variety of judgment collection procedures, including execution and sheriff sales, foreclosure, garnishment, fraudulent transfer litigation, charging liens, and other collection procedures.
