Practice Areas

Business

Sometimes business circumstances arise that are unavoidable and lead to conflict and ensuing litigation. Matheny Sears Linkert & Jaime, LLP is deeply experienced in courtroom matters and enjoys a widespread reputation for prevailing on behalf of our clients, regardless of the challenge. While the firm’s practice areas are increasingly diverse, the firm’s roots are in litigating our clients’ disputes through successful resolution. Our 30-year reputation for trying cases has grown from those roots, and our litigation skills remain at the core of our service to our clients. Recognizing our excellence in this regard, Martindale-Hubbell has for many years conferred its highest rating—of “A-V”—on the firm.

As part of the firm’s dedication to effective and complete legal representation to all aspects and needs of a business’ operations, the firm offers experienced counsel in negotiating, litigating, and collecting debts owed to clients. The firm takes pride on cost effectiveness, understanding that paying more money than can realistically be recovered in a collection effort  does not serve a client’s financial or business interests in any way. The services we offer include: negotiating and drafting agreements for payment; instituting collection actions in court; obtaining judgments by default or trial; executing on judgments utilizing all methods recognized under the law; and arbitration and mediation of creditor/debtor disputes.

For more than ten years, Matheny Sears Linkert & Jaime, LLP has been approved by, and appointed by, CUNA to represent Credit Unions of all sizes in virtually every legal controversy that may arise from or affect the operations of Credit Unions. The firm has also been privately retained by many Credit Unions to represent them in other, non-traditional litigation contexts. On every aspect of its representation, the firm has always maintained close contact with Credit Union management and  its General Counsel to reach the most cost effective and optimal outcome.
