Whether it is commercial loans, consumer loans, such as credit cards, mortgages, unpaid invoices or other trade credit, or other kinds of loans, the task of collecting amounts owed can be difficult for creditors without effective legal representation.
When it comes to collecting debts, whether secured or unsecured, Hamilton Duncan has the extensive experience our clients need to recover what is owed. With a dedicated team of lawyers, paralegals, legal assistants, and an established network of investigators, tracers, bailiffs, realtors, appraisers, and process servers, we are the premiere collections firm in the Fraser Valley and among the leaders in British Columbia.
