As a leading Commercial Collections Law Firm Hull, Swingley & Betchie Aggressively Pursues Its Clients’ Legal and Financial Interests
For a vendor or service provider, collecting past due commercial accounts can be a complicated and time consuming process often requiring the investment of more time and resources than the debt is worth.

Retaining a Montana-based commercial collections law firm solves these problems. With every case Hull, Swingley & Betchie takes, it is our goal to recover the debt owed in the most efficient and cost effective manner possible. We handle the entire process from start to finish, fighting to protect your legal interests and get results. The charge for this service is not due until we have obtained an actual recovery and its amount is based on the amount recovered.
