Crawford & von Keller, PLLC is a full-service creditors’ rights and litigation law firm in North Carolina. We have extensive experience in a wide variety of practice areas, and are supported by a committed staff of legal professionals. Our clients can expect professionalism, tenacity, and individual attention when they consult with us.

At Crawford & von Keller, PLLC, we are devoted to helping our clients navigate various legal issues, including bankruptcy, foreclosure, collections, replevins and repossessions, evictions, litigation, landlord/tenant disputes, real estate issues, settlements, and transfers, and more. We also offer legal assistance to clients dealing with loss mitigation issues and REO (real estate-owned) services. We work expeditiously to seek the best possible resolution for our clients.


We represent North Carolina creditors who have suffered losses after a debtor files for bankruptcy. Even though filing for bankruptcy offers debtors some protection from debt collection and discharges many types of unsecured debt, creditors still have certain rights, particularly when it comes to secured debt. Our creditors’ rights attorneys are here to advise you of your legal options and advocate for your rights during bankruptcy proceedings.


Our attorneys have the knowledge and resources to deal with various foreclosure-related matters in North Carolina, including commercial and residential. No matter what type of financial institution you are — be it a bank, a mortgage company, a credit union, or another type of lender or loan servicer– our team can help you enforce your rights as a creditor and will guide you through every stage of the foreclosure process, from the first missed payment to eviction. We can help with various issues that often arise in relation to foreclosure including: drafting demand letters, title disputes, lien releases, loss mitigation, and much more. We will also fiercely defend you against counterclaims made by the opposing debtor.


Our collections attorneys handle both consumer and commercial collections cases. Whether you are seeking to recover a debt from an individual or another business, our team has the skills and experience to help guide you through the collections process and aggressively seek the debt you are owed. We assist our clients with various legal issues related to collection, including fraudulent transfers, domestication of foreign judgments, and subrogation and receivership, among other issues.


A replevin action is also sometimes referred to as a Claim and Delivery. This action enables a creditor to recover certain types of secured debt and property from a debtor. Common examples include automobiles, mobile homes, and commercial equipment. Our replevin attorneys will provide you with legal counsel throughout the repossession process and will fight for your rights as a creditor when a debtor files for bankruptcy.


Evictions can be costly and time-consuming. Our attorneys have the experience and resources to help guide you through evicting a tenant in a manner that saves you time and money. Our firm understands that eviction can be a traumatic event in people’s lives, which is why we take pains to approach the eviction process with sensitivity and professionalism while also aggressively pursuing your desired outcome.


Our litigation attorneys can help our clients with a broad range of legal issues, including civil litigation defense, commercial litigation defense, creditors’ defense, business disputes, and breach of contract. With our extensive experience in the courtroom, our team understands the importance of being prepared for trial and will work tirelessly to resolve disputes in a professional but tenacious manner. We will craft a winning legal strategy on your behalf so that you can continue to focus on other business concerns. 

Landlord/Tenant Disputes

When a landlord/tenant dispute arises, our lawyers will be ready to help you come to a resolution, always keeping your best interests in mind. Having an experienced attorney on hand to help correct miscommunications and advocate for your rights can be beneficial. We have represented clients on a variety of legal issues, including lease drafting, lease negotiations, lease review, and, when necessary, both commercial and residential evictions.

Real Estate

Our real estate attorneys understand the complexities of real estate matters and have regularly represented clients dealing with corporate or business transactions and litigation. We work expeditiously to resolve your case according to your desired outcome. We handle a wide variety of real estate issues, including tax sales, partitions, foreclosures, evictions, boundary disputes, quiet title actions, and more. Whatever your specific real estate issue may be, we can provide knowledgeable counsel and representation at every step in the legal process.
