Lisa Schmeh is a managing director with Cortland Global ( Her firm provides special asset and commercial loan work out services for financial institutions, credit unions, non-bank lenders and loan portfolios acquired from seized banks. The rules and regulations governing these assets can be quite convoluted. For litigation matters involving collection actions and defaulted borrowers, Lisa relies on the expertise of The Callins Law Firm.

The very first matter on which Lisa worked with Callins was not routine. “This particular case involved personal bankruptcies, dissolved entities and uncooperative borrowers. The matters involving the litigation case was very time-sensitive,” says Lisa. “Callins adhered to the court-mandated time table without failure.” What impressed Lisa most was the Callins staff’s ability to consistently stay on top of everything and meet deadlines while still being proactive in making recommendations to Cortland. “They kept us apprised throughout the process so that we could make informed decisions. They offered thoughtful legal expertise while understanding the business issues at the same time!”

“Cortland’s lending client and Callins already had a relationship in place when I began working at Cortland,” says Lisa. “However, I’ve since had the option of using other firms, but I continue to call on Callins for assistance, especially on more complex matters. I know they produce quality work.”

“The team at Callins Law is very responsive to our needs and proactive in keeping us informed. Their work is both timely and high quality.”
