Fowler Bell will handle your collection needs.





We understand that business success is founded on a healthy bottom line. We recover outstanding debts with speed, practicality and professionalism.

Our approach to both contested and uncontested collection matters is practical, responsive, and efficient. Armed with a thorough knowledge of both substantive and procedural law, we devise recovery strategies that are practical and effective. Clients have access to the full resources of our firm and benefit from our network of relationships with attorneys nationwide.

We will collect consumer and commercial debts as well as debt secured by liens on real property working quickly and diligently to reduce claims to judgment and judgments to recoveries. The department develops individualized work plans to collect debts, enforce out of state judgments, garnish wages or bank accounts, locate assets, and represent claims in bankruptcy.

We are members of the Commercial Law League of America and the National Association of Retail Collection Attorneys. Our attorneys are admitted to practice before the state courts of Kentucky, the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Western District of Kentucky and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
