Experienced Louisiana Debt Collection Lawyers Fighting for Your Rights as a Creditor

Mansfield Melancon’s debt collection attorneys always strive to get the best possible outcome for our clients who are creditors with past due debt owed to them.  We represent a wide variety of businesses with consumer and commercial debt in Louisiana.  We believe that an individual, customized approach to each debt is essential.

Timing is critical to the recovery of debt.  The recovery rate decreases with the passage of time while costs simultaneously increase.  Some debt may be declared uncollectible due to bankruptcy, death, prior liens, or judgments.  The debt collection lawyers at Mansfield Melancon advise the client immediately to minimize expenses and time.
