Hunt & Henriques is one of the largest debt collection law firms in California. It is also the principle debt collection attorney for Citibank in the state. Located in San Jose, Hunt & Henriques also represents original creditors Capital One Bank, Daimler Chrysler Financial Services (DCFS) and Discover Bank; and, debt buyers Portfolio Recovery Associates and Midland Funding, LLC. While I have heard complaints about the non-attorney debt collectors employed by Hunt & Henriques, I have found their trial lawyers to be capable and reasonable.
Due to their large caseload, Hunt and Henriques is always willing to talk settlement. Principle attorney Michael Hunt once summed it up this way: “Bill, if I had to try all my cases, I’d go broke.”
While Hunt & Henriques will settle its Citibank cases and DCFS cases, it will also take these cases to trial. Citibank has a team of witnesses available to testify in California, and DCFS has offices in the state and will also have a witness at trial. Discover, however, is less willing to produce a witness, so more favorable settlements may be available in these cases.
Debt Buyer Portfolio Recovery Associates from New York typically will not send a witness to trial, so favorable settlements are available here as well. Hunt & Henriques has been known to walk away from – dismiss – its low-value Midland Funding cases, rather than try them.
