McGlinchey Stafford PLLC
Jon Ann Giblin represents lenders, banks, credit unions, and other clients in bankruptcy matters, collections, and creditors’ rights issues throughout the state of Louisiana and across the country. She regularly guides creditors in consumer and commercial bankruptcy proceedings, always striving to protect and improve their collateral and financing positions. Many of Jon Ann’s clients are financial institutions, lenders, or creditors based outside of Louisiana who have collateral that ends up in the state.
With extensive experience of more than two decades, Jon Ann assists secured creditors in recovering collateral through replevins and executory process foreclosures on both movable and immovable property. In her litigation practice, she works closely with the firm’s other litigators in handling collections-related matters and creditors’ rights enforcement disputes and represents landlords in commercial evictions and lease litigation issues. Jon Ann also helps keep clients in compliance with the Fair Debt Collections Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Louisiana Lease of Movables Act and performs briefings and training on the regulatory framework so organizations can prevent problems down the road.
Additionally, Jon Ann lectures frequently on such topics as creditors’ rights, bankruptcy, and federal statutes pertaining to collections and related topics. She also regularly trains firm clients who are taking the Nevada Collection Manager’s Examination on the statutory regulations which comprise the examination.
Jon Ann particularly enjoys handling consumer bankruptcy cases because she tends to get the motions resolved not long after they are filed. Louisiana’s bankruptcy bar is a relatively small and familiar group, and very rarely does she get into protracted litigation there. Clients benefit from the relationships with the judges and officials that Jon Ann cultivates and maintains. Her practice encompasses motions to lift stay, objections to confirmation of plans, adversary proceedings, objecting to discharge, valuation hearings, and defense of preferential transfer actions.
Jon Ann’s previous experience as a business manager enhances her ability to serve clients. In all aspects of her work, she emphasizes professionalism, client service, and responsiveness.
