Four attorneys join to expand capabilities, geographic footprint

AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Barron & Newburger, P.C.—a law firm with over three decades of experience in consumer and commercial litigation, insolvency and bankruptcy litigation, and compliance and regulatory affairs—today announces the opening of offices in California, Colorado, and New York. Adding to its offices in Houston and the main office in Austin, Texas, the move propels the firm's presence to a national presence and with the hiring of four new attorneys, builds new areas of expertise and capability.

Since 1981, Barron & Newburger has been building its track record of representation of commercial clients, creditors and collection industry members in litigation, regulatory and compliance affairs, business transactions and reorganizations from its headquarters in the state capital of Texas—Austin—adding a Houston office in 2011. Today, with offices in five cities around the country, Barron & Newburger has cultivated a depth and breadth of expertise that goes beyond central Texas, with the firm's attorneys deeply attuned to regional and nationwide needs.

"These strategically selected attorneys and hubs will allow us to bring our renowned level of unique, personal and proven service to the consumer finance industry clients increasingly in need of solutions," commented Manny Newburger, a Shareholder and Vice President of Barron & Newburger. "We think the insolvency and bankruptcy, compliance and regulatory affairs, and commercial collections industries will be pleased with the expertise we continue to offer."

Newburger, who joined the firm in 1983, is known nationally for his expertise in consumer and commercial law, and has helped build the firm's collective reputation representing collection agencies, law firms, debt purchasers and other participants in the financial services industry, including compliance and collections technique training, policy and procedure development, regulatory representation, and litigation defense.

Barbara Barron, the Founder of Barron & Newburger added, "The recent growth of the firm allows us to expand our offerings to the credit and collection industry of creative legal solutions in litigation, bankruptcy, regulatory representation, and compliance. In addition to being able to serve clients in more jurisdictions we are now able to offer general counsel services for firms that do not wish to add a general counsel to their overhead."

Barron has decades of experience in bankruptcy and insolvency, FDCPA law, commercial litigation and small business advisory work. She has worked with clients in effecting out of court workouts and has represented debtors, creditors, trustees and creditors' committees in bankruptcy proceedings throughout Texas. She has particularly represented numerous restaurants in restructuring their affairs both inside and out of bankruptcy proceedings.
