Wolcott Rivers Gates is a full service law firm and has been serving the Hampton Roads community for over 115 years. As a full service firm with approximately 30 attorneys, we have expertise in nearly every area of law that your Board may confront. Without limitation, we can handle any litigation or collections matters. We pride ourselves in doing our work in a cost effective and efficient manner providing unsurpassed customer service. We are an active member of the Community Associations Institute (CAI) and its Southeastern Virginia Chapter and our attorneys have published and lectured on several areas of the law affecting community associations.
We have a staff of dedicated collections paralegals whose only job is to handle collections accounts and do everything in their power to collect unpaid assessments all while providing you with excellent customer service. Many collections companies stop providing services the moment a bankruptcy is filed. However, this is not the practice at Wolcott Rivers Gates. We offer our clients the ability to monitor and oversee a bankruptcy filing to ensure that the client has every opportunity to collect any money due and owing and that debts are not improperly discharged, causing problems down the road. Separate and apart from our collections department is a dedicated bankruptcy department made up of paralegals whose only job is to focus on the bankruptcy matters that this firm handles. With dedicated staff for both collections and bankruptcy you can be assured that your files are getting the attention they need and deserve.
Beyond collections, the attorneys at Wolcott Rivers Gates are equipped to handle any issue your association may face. From negotiating contracts, to handling contract disputes with third party vendors, defending lawsuits by homeowners against the Association, to zoning issues we are ready, willing and able to assist your association.
