About Us

At Keith D. Weiner & Associates Co., LPA, our practice is guided by the overriding ambition to establish rewarding and long lasting attorney/client relationships based upon a foundation of value, accountability, reliability and integrity so that both parties succeed. This starts with our commitment to advancing and protecting our clients’ rights in courts of law and public opinion by providing sage advice and counsel. We believe that sound and sometimes prudent advice will help our clients operate within the bounds of the law and prevent them from suffering unnecessary and unexpected losses, fees and costs. We do not strive to be the largest creditors’ rights law firm. Rather, we strive to build healthy relationships based upon a commitment to meeting our clients’ needs and by protecting the industry in which we have built our careers and reputation.

There are 3 cornerstones to our philosophy. First, within the Creditors’ Rights field we limit our focus to debt collection, foreclosures, bankruptcy and related areas. We do not practice in other areas outside of Creditors’ Rights and we do not represent debtors. Therefore, our concentration and focus are always aligned with our clients’ needs. Second, we reinvest in technology to provide as much transparency to our clients as possible so they know the status of their files and so we can generate data they need on an adhoc basis. Along the way, our clients should take comfort in knowing that their data is secured through a strong network, office and desktop data security policy, as well as a tested disaster recovery program. Third, we continuously educate and train our attorneys, support staff and clients. Our attorneys possess knowledge and insight into the latest trends, which enables them to advise clients on how to avoid problems before they start and to develop creative theories to prosecute their cases. We continuously train our staff so they understand the significance of their job duties. We discuss case law and the mistakes that other firms have made in our industry, and we review policies and procedures so there is complete accountability. We educate our clients through client bulletins, webinars, and visits to their offices, and we join them at industry conferences and events.

We believe that if we limit our practice to what we know and do best, reinvest our profits in technology and strive to gain knowledge while sharing the same with our staff and clients, we will build well balanced relationships with healthy foundations. We simply ask our clients to embrace our philosophy and partner with us so we can succeed together as leaders in our industry.

Our Fees

Our fees are competitive and conform to industry standards. In most instances, the following fee arrangements are available:

1. Collection matters are handled on a contingency fee basis, but an hourly option is available and sometimes requested by clients who hold large balance claims. At a clients’ request, fees for collection matters can be billed on a per item flat fee basis for letters, pleadings, motions, and executions.

2. Uncontested foreclosures and related bankruptcy and eviction matters are most often billed on a flat fee basis according to the Fannie Mae guidelines. Contested matters, and counterclaims, generally require additional flat fee or hourly billing, subject to client approval;

3. Uncontested replevin cases are also handled on a flat fee basis. If the right to recover possession is opposed, the matter is converted to an hourly fee basis, upon client approval;

4. Mechanic’s lien matters are treated the same as replevin cases, unless they involve multiple properties, or otherwise relate to unusual subject matter;

5. Our firm is also pioneering the availability and use of alternative fee arrangements (“AFA’s”) for legal services that have traditionally been billed hourly. The availability of AFA’s is a product of our firm’s ambition to deliver legal services in an efficient and cost-effective manner, and help clients more effectively forecast and contain costs. AFA’s are available for an ever expanding range of matters, including litigation defense, discovery disputes, and appellate practice.
