Client Testimonials


“Ron is terrific.  He knows everything there is to know about collection law and has the common sense smarts to get things done.  We have worked with him for many years, and he has done a fabulous job for our company.”

“I needed some assistance on a fairly old judgment that my client’s prior attorney had obtained.  Ron not only helped, but the judgment is now, for the first time in over 10 years, being paid.  Ron went all the way to Florida to collect on a California Federal Bankruptcy Judgment and was successful in obtaining a levy that forced the debtor to fall to his knees and settle the case.  After 10 years of chasing, my client is extremely happy with Ron’s services.  Ron is probably the premiere collection attorney in California.  His contacts, his abilities, and his demeanor are the best for a collection attorney.  Compassionate and understanding but, unlike many other collection attorneys, he will not back down even against the fiercest opponent or debtor.  A class act – one that would be very hard to match.  Oh, and by the way, he is a nice guy too.”
