Program

Christopher J. Willis, a Ballard Spahr consumer financial services attorney based in Atlanta, served on a panel at the NARCA 2013 Legal Symposium on Consumer Debt Collection. When asked to define collection attorneys, Mr. Willis responded that practicing collection law is "most certainly" the practice of law. Collection operations are subject numerous federal and state laws, in which collection attorneys must be completely conversant. He could think of no industry subject to greater record-keeping scrutiny and auditing than debt collection. "The collection law firm is one of the most audited entities on the planet," he said. "That takes a real lawyer."
