FIRM HELPS AMASS MORE THAN A HALF-MILLION DOLLARS FOR CITY OF PORT ARTHUR
McCreary, Veselka Bragg & Allen P.C. Attorneys at Law in coordination with the court resolves monies owed to the City of Port Arthur, Texas
ROUND ROCK, Texas (March 21, 2016) – The City of Port Arthur and McCreary, Veselka Bragg & Allen P.C. Attorneys at Law (mvba) resolve $847,937.98 of municipal court fines and fees in the first six months of a new partnership.
mvba entered into a contract with the city September 2015 and has made considerable strides in the first six months with $508,152.74 paid in full to the city. The firm specializes in collection services for delinquent tax and non-tax related programs and the City of Port Arthur is one of many clients who have entrusted mvba to collect outstanding court fines and fees from people having outstanding citations. mvba’s innovative approach has proven effective and beneficial for the city in recovering those hundreds of thousands previously unpaid and is continuing the same efforts towards the remaining amount outstanding.
“mvba’s efforts have been enhanced by the cooperation we have received from the municipal court staff and the partnership that has been created between the law firm and the City of Port Arthur,” Craig Morgan, Partner at mvba, said. “We continue to examine ways to help the city in its efforts to collect these outstanding balances.”
The Port Arthur area has more than 57,750 residents. The funds recovered by mvba on behalf of the City of Port Arthur will greatly benefit the city.
