This area of law needs little explanation. If someone owes you money and will not pay, often a firm letter from a lawyer will be effective in collecting the debt. If that is not successful, a law suit will be required. The debt may be personal such as a loan to a friend or relative. It may be a result of a business transaction. Monteith, Baker, Johnston & Doodnauth Professional Corporation will help you collect what is owing to you.
If you are the one owing the debt, we may be able to help you reach a compromise to satisfy the debt for less than the full amount owing. If there is an unjust claim against you, we will defend it vigorously on your behalf.
