In October of 2009 we were referred to William Gustafson by a friend who had had a case with Mr. Gustafson and had been impressed by his integrity and thoroughness. At that point we had already been trying for 4 1/2 years to have a business loan repaid. We had worked through 3 attorneys without success.
After a half hour phone call Mr. Gustafson did some investigating, believed the resources were available to repay us and gave us the opportunity to hire him. Although the whole process took an additional three years, this January, 2013, we received the final payment of our loan, all of our attorney fees for eight years and a portion of the interest promised in the loan!
Throughout the process we were impressed with Mr. Gustafson's tenacity, brilliant stategy, integrity and willingness to answer our questions and entertain our desires and ideas. He kept us informed on what was happening and answered our e-mails and phone calls in a timely manner.
He definitely has thorough knowledge of the legal system in his specialty, of how the plaintive might respond and how to prevail upon the debtor to meet his obligation to us.
We have referred Mr. Gustafson to our friends and would recommend him to anyone seeking to collect on a debt. We have met no other attorney who seemed as interested in working on our case as we were in having a satisfactory resolution. We are very grateful for his expertise.

I was referred to Mr. Gustafson by a business associate about 6 moths ago.I called him about my collection case and talked to him- not a secretary or associate. He spent about 30 minutes on the phone with me answering all of my questions about my case and what the approximate cost to me would be. I felt comfortable talking with him and he suggested that I take some time to think about what we had discussed. He also did not charge me for this phone call.
I talked to two other collection attorneys and decided to hire Mr. Gustafson. I am so glad I did so. He immediately started to work on my case. Within a few months, he was able to collect all of the money due me and he even got my customer to pay my court costs and attorney's fees. I later found out that Mr. Gustafson has been a collections attorney for more than 30 years.
If I ever need to hire a collections lawyer again, I will call him first.
