Kristen Redman helps creditor clients navigate the complicated Bankruptcy system with much more ease than if they had to manage their claims individually and works with all involved parties to negotiate the most favorable treatment for the creditor client’s claim. She also works with clients that are pursuing actions in both state and federal court for breach of contract issues, money owed, post-judgment enforcement, and domestication of foreign judgments. Kristen often works with creditor clients to initially resolve claims for balances owed in an effort to avoid litigation, and to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations as to debt collection. She has a broad range of experience in bankruptcy litigation, state collection disputes and post-judgment enforcement. Daily, Kristen works closely with other firm attorneys to ensure optimum results for clients seeking satisfaction of outstanding debts.
Prior to practicing law, Kristen worked in banking for more than eight years which gives her keen insights into the financial services industry.
