Our Practice

Municipal Creditors' Rights

GRB Law is a leading Pennsylvania law firm engaged in the collection of delinquent taxes and claims on behalf of our municipal clients.

Focused on a system that emphasizes the collection of our clients’ claims first and legal action second, the Municipal Creditors’ Rights group at GRB Law works closely with our clients to create a fair and effective collection process.  With over 30 years of experience in local collection law, our attorneys regularly advise our clients on all aspects of applicable state and federal collection laws and procedures.  In addition to the enforced collection of our client’s delinquent tax and municipal claims, including real estate taxes, water and sewer claims, local earned income taxes under Acts 511 and 32 and other local taxes, we also represent our municipal clients in a variety of other legal matters such as litigation, bankruptcy, administrative law and anti-blight initiatives.
