"Creditors have better memories than debtors." ~ Benjamin Franklin

Debt Collection and Creditors' Rights Attorneys

Debts on paper are not money. Compelling debtors to actually pay, surrender collateral or fulfill their contractual obligations is easier said than done, especially in the state of Texas. At Wells & Cuellar, P.C., we have built a successful law practice by collecting debts and judgments while protecting the interests of businesses in all types of litigation.

By retaining the law firm of Wells & Cuellar to pursue debt collection or resolve your commercial dispute, you engage the services of a skilled problem-solving team. We have helped a broad base of business clients achieve innovative and advantageous results through strategic transaction management, negotiation and out-of-court dispute resolution. When litigation is necessary, our trial lawyers are ready, willing and able to meet the challenge.

Uniquely Qualified to Protect Your Interests

Founding attorney D. Brent Wells is board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization in Commercial and Consumer Law, certified as a specialist in Creditors' Rights Law by the American Board of Certification, and often sought as a neutral in mediation and arbitration of Debtor/Creditor and Commercial or Consumer matters. He leads a team of three other attorneys who are committed to ideals of integrity, creativity, and energetic representation of their clients, within the bounds of the law.

The Texas creditors' rights lawyers of Wells & Cuellar strive to maximize recovery and minimize your losses and legal expenses, and we can capably defend against claims or initiate legal action to protect your company. Texas is one of the most hostile places for creditors to get satisfaction, and recoveries are never guaranteed, yet we have consistently recovered for clients for almost 30 years.

There is no magic, and there are no unauthorized shortcuts or questionable tactics to what we do. We strive for lawful results through the time-tested ideals of diligence, teamwork, looking at the problem from different angles and conscientiously doing our homework on the debtor. We have many longstanding clients because we take pride in our commitment to professional ethics and work hard to earn and maintain their trust.
