Replevins / Asset Recovery

The Firm handles vehicle and equipment repossession matters in all Florida Courts.

In Florida, a secured creditor can utilize self help repossession (i.e. peaceably retaking possession of its collateral from a debtor after default, without resort to legal process). Fla. Stat. §679.503 specifically provides for this remedy.

When self help repossession is not possible, Chapter 78 of Florida Statutes sets forth the judicial remedy of replevin. Replevin is generally used by a creditor seeking to repossess property securing a debt when the location of the collateral is unknown, or when the debtor has locked the collateral in a garage. Under the statute, replevin is available when:

1. The debtor has failed to make payments, or otherwise defaulted on the obligation.

2. The property has been seized or levied by another party, and the creditor wants to protect its rights in the property.

Flat Fees for Most Cases
Hourly billing by attorneys simply is no longer the standard in the legal field. Clients want to know from the beginning the amount of legal fees they will incur for each matter. The Firm bills a majority of its work on replevin cases on a flat fee. Flat fees provide cost certainty so bankruptcy and collection departments budget for their legal costs more accurately.
