Alvin I. Gilmore Esq.

Cleveland, Ohio

I have been a collection attorney for several years. I started my career while attending law school working as a collector in the Cleveland area for the public sector. After law school I worked as a chief attorney for the Veterans Administration investigating claims and determining validity. In addition I worked for other Collection and Bankruptcy firms in Northeast Ohio and opened my own practice over 25 years ago.

Our many years of experience, knowledge and proven techniques in the collection field have afforded my firm great success. Every claim is thoroughly reviewed and investigated insuring all facets are utilized when determining the best course of action to pursue each claim. We accept claims for varied amounts and treat each one individually and with equal importance.

Our firm has recovered many accounts for my current and newly acquired clients. Our firm looks forward to assisting you with your collection needs. You may contact us to place your claim(s) via facsimile, by email or through the U.S. Mail.
