Creditors' Rights / Collection

We are one of the leading creditors' rights firms in California. Unlike a "collection mill," we do not use an army of paralegals to dial for dollars - we aggresively litigate to recover for our clients. We frequently handle judgment collections for other attorneys who lack our expertise in this field.



Serlin & Whiteford, LLP has been at the forefront of evolving receivership law, including but not limited to the use of receivers to enforce the judgments and conduct foreclosures. We represent receivers and creditors in the receivership context.


Unlike many collection firms, Serlin & Whiteford, LLP does not cease work due to the mere happenstance of bankruptcy. Instead, the same high level of expertise is applied on a different playing field, including non-dischargeability actions, plan confirmation litigation, and the like.

Business Entity Formation / Operation

Serlin & Whiteford, LLP also assists clients with formation and operation issues of corporations, partnerships, and limited liability companies.

Real Estate Transactions

By reason of its extensive real estate banking experience, Serlin & Whiteford, LLP is well equipped to assist clients with all manner of real estate issues, including title work, mechanics liens and related litigation, foreclosures, as well as sales and financing transactions.

Business Transactions

We also have an extensive practice in business buyouts, business lending, and workouts.
