What Is A Creditor Rights Attorney?
A creditor rights attorney typically practices in 1 of 2 courts. There are state courts, where clients go to recover personal property (replevins) or collect money.

State court actions may include a replevin hearing. This action seeks to repatriate personal property with the lender.

Our staff is highly skilled in getting the pieces “just right” to make these seizures effective.

Colorado Replevin Law
One of the many ways our firm assists banks, equipment lessors, auto finance companies, and other financial institutions in asset recovery, repossession, and collateral recovery efforts is through a complaint for replevin. Replevin is an efficient way to legally repossess collateral from the stubborn debtor when self-help has failed.
Procedurally, a verified complaint is filed, together with a motion for issuance of a show cause order. The hearing schedule is expedited. We obtain further orders to insure that the collateral is maintained and safeguarded during the procedure and timely returned, or made available, to the lender after hearing. Our years of experience have taught us the various extra steps needed to recover collateral efficiently.
Several years ago, our attorneys recognized a procedural flaw in the replevin rule. We drafted language correcting the problem and submitted the change to the Colorado Civil Rules Committee. This committee approved our change and forwarded the new version to the Colorado Supreme Court. The new rule took effect on January 1, 2004. It is still in effect today! The new rule will save creditors significant time and money in recovering personal property.
