Attorney Chesley Oriel started handling and assisting in collection matters during law school; so his experience in the “collection world” exceeds fifty years!
What sets Attorney Chesley Oriel apart from other attorneys who handle collection matters is that he tries to think “outside the box”. A perfect example involves a Condo Association that contacted him to help them collect outstanding condo fees that were owed by a condo owner. Rather than simply help the Condo Association collect the condo fees that were outstanding, Attorney Oriel was able to get the Condo owner to transfer the ownership of the condo to the Condo Association for nominal cost, plus he got the mortgage lender to discharge two mortgages for “zero” payment. Attorney Oriel’s efforts resulted in the Condo Association then selling the condo and it made several thousands of dollars that it never anticipated receiving. Yes, it was a windfall, that would never have occurred had it not been for Attorney Oriel, thinking “outside the box”.
Attorney Chesley Oriel has a history of receiving referrals from other attorneys, because they know that if there is “something” to collect, he will collect it.
