Florida-based Padgett Law Group (PLG) announced today that the firm has expanded its Arkansas practice with the acquisition of local default services law firm Dyke & Winzerling, PLC (D&W). The acquisition is effective today, September 1, 2017.
With the acquisition, PLG will add several attorneys, support staff, and an expanded office presence in the state. PLG will maintain a GSE-compliant brick-and-mortar operation in Little Rock, AR, providing a complete suite of default services state-wide for its mortgage servicing clients. PLG already provides national bankruptcy services.
“This acquisition deepens our commitment to performing high quality legal work throughout the state of Arkansas and is a valuable addition to our regional footprint,” said Robyn Padgett, Director of Operations/Chief Operating Officer of Padgett Law Group. She added, “Our clients were eager to see us move into Arkansas and this partnership will allow us to aggressively grow our presence throughout the state.”
“While our name is changing and we’re coming into the larger Padgett Law Group brand, our culture and satisfied client base we’ve built over the years will stay the same. We were looking for a partner that shared our values and that our clients respected. We found that partner in Padgett Law Group. We’re excited about our future in Arkansas,” said J. Dyke, Managing Member Attorney. As part of the transition, Dyke (and attorneys, Mary Winzerling, Mitch Berry and Renee Price) will join the PLG team. Additionally, J. Dyke will act as Arkansas Supervising Attorney for PLG.
Effective immediately, existing D&W email addresses will begin forwarding to PLG accounts (formatted as [first initial] and [lastname]@padgettlaw.net). An updated escalation matrix and firm-wide contact sheet has already been distributed to clients.
