Hinshaw Partner Dave Schultz Recognized as a "Top Attorney in Collections" by Collection Advisor Magazine

September 28, 2018

Hinshaw partner Dave Schultz was recently named a "Top Attorney in Collections" by the trade publication Collection Advisor, a well-known industry publication. Recognized attorneys were nominated by their peers for their contributions to "improve collections through legal collections, creditor defense and legal consultation."

In the publication, Dave was asked by Collection Advisor to weigh-in on what he believes the biggest challenge for collection attorneys today is and how they can overcome it. "I approach this question from the perspective of a defense attorney who represents collection attorneys in litigation and compliance matters," Dave explained. "The biggest challenge that I see for collection attorneys is their ability to keep up with the FDCPA case law. Related to this is the increase in FDCPA suits against collection lawyers for conduct that occurred in collection lawsuits."

Dave concentrates his practice on defending Fortune 500 companies, debt buyers, debt collection agencies, lawyers, lending institutions and others in consumer litigation and counsels organizations throughout the consumer financial services industry on risk management. At Hinshaw, he has successfully defended hundreds of consumer law cases (including pursuant to the FDCPA, TCPA and FCRA) and other class actions.
