Paula acts for both parties seeking payment of debts and those looking to defend a claim where it is alleged that they owe a debt to another party.
No matter what the economic climate, disputes regarding liability to pay debts, the quantum and various other factors will occur, and it is important to have a lawyer on your side with experience and expertise in dealing with your dispute.
Subject to the amount of the claim in question, claims will typically be dealt with in the Magistrates or the Supreme Court.
Paula is very experienced in dealing with debt disputes, with more than 15 years of acting for Plaintiffs and Defendants in such disputes. She is mindful of costs when dealing with disputes of this nature and the importance of counselling clients about legal costs vs the quantum of the debt in dispute, so that clients are not ultimately paying more in legal costs than the debt being disputed, coupled with the stress of the dispute itself; especially when it becomes litigious.
Paula can assist with pre and post litigation debt recovery matters, acting as counsel in court, and most importantly, ensuring client understanding as the matter progresses.Get in Touch
