If I could give Bill Gustafson 10 stars, I would.
Bill’s knowledge, creativity, persuasive techniques and authoritative demeanor is why I have been successful in collecting on my judgment.
My case was a complicated one in which I needed to obtain a judgment in one state before I could collect in a different state. Before consulting Bill about my situation, I was pretty sure I was never going to see a dime of the money I had loaned to a friend. I had a million questions on what my legal rights were, what the laws were, what to do next and how to get started. I found Bill online and started asking him questions. Before I ever paid Bill a cent, he gave ideas on what I could do, answered every question I had and consulted with me for months before I was even able to retain his services to begin the collection portion of my judgment.
Bill was straightforward about the laws and all the issues we may run into along the way. He couldn’t guarantee I would be able to retrieve the money I had loaned but we had a shot. I could tell from my communication with Bill that he was determined to do whatever he could to help me and he was going to be well worth his hourly rate.
You get what you pay for. I retained Bill and his persuasive techniques have resulted in my collecting close to $100K, attorney fees, court costs and interest on my judgment. There have been bumps along the way as the defendant has tried to get out of paying me back but Bill has headed them off with court filings and prompt attention to whatever matter popped up. I couldn’t be happier with the results Bill has provided!
Since my judgment was for a large amount, it has taken a while to get the money collected. Because of that, I have needed Bill to stay involved with my case to ensure payment on my judgment. I am always amazed when I read Bill’s convincing correspondence to the defendant to continue the collection and always feel so lucky that he is on MY side!

After a year of frustration getting a judgement paid by my ex-husband, I hired Bill. He was pleasant, strategic, pragmatic and ultimately got the job done with a series of actions that can best be described in retrospect as an excellent chess game. He enabled justice to be served for my kids' education and futures. How can one adequately appreciate that? I recommend him without reservation.

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.
