Why Choose Us?
We have a state of the art creditors rights practice which covers every county in Kentucky and Ohio. We have represented secured creditors, especially manufactured housing finance companies, for 36 years in every conceivable type case in state and bankruptcy court. This experience proved to be a perfect transition to storage building RTO cases, which we have been handling since 2013. Since that time we have handled over 100 cases for various NBSRA members in counties throughout Kentucky and Ohio. The firm led the way in obtaining a groundbreaking decision from a Kentucky trial court upholding the rights of an RTO lessor against a person claiming to be a bona fide purchaser without notice. We truly enjoy working with RTO companies, which are a breath of fresh air compared to the typical national financial services entities that make up the bulk of the firm’s practice. We hope to make storage building RTO an even bigger percentage of our case inventory in the years to come.
