Padgett Law Group (PLG), a Legal League 100 member firm and a leading regional default services law firm serving the southeastern United States, is celebrating 25 years of service. PLG currently operates in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Texas.
“When I founded this firm 25 years ago, my vision was for a dynamic, responsive legal practice that despite success
would never lose sight of our boutique, hands-on beginnings. That, and our focus on people, has remained a hallmark of PLG throughout the years and I’m thrilled that this milestone comes on the heels of our expansion into the Texas market,” said CEO Timothy D. Padgett.
“Tim and I are fully focused on the development of PLG. We’re continually developing and deepening our client relationships; developing our internal technology, processes, and staffing; and looking at our growth from a conservative, balanced approach to ensure we can meet clients’ needs while maintaining the Padgett approach to how we do everything,” said Chief Development Officer Robyn S. Padgett.
The firm was founded in Tallahassee, Florida, in 1993 by Timothy D. Padgett, who today retains his day-to-day management role within the firm, serving as CEO. The firm expanded throughout the state of Florida, adding offices in Tampa and Fort Lauderdale to provide state-wide coverage.
In 2015, PLG acquired Topping & Associates, PC, which expanded the firm’s practice into Georgia. Today the PLG
executive team is based in the firm’s Atlanta office located in the financial services hub of Buckhead. The Atlanta
office also manages and processes all Georgia default and bankruptcy matters.
The firm expanded into Tennessee in 2013 and operates out of its physical site in Memphis. The firm’s
entry into Tennessee was well received by clients with year-over-year growth exceeding projections by over 30 percent annually.
PLG acquired Arkansas-based default services firm Dyke & Winzerling, PLLC in 2017, and today operates a full-service default practice covering the entire state from its physical office in Little Rock. Success in Arkansas has been
tremendous with production growth of 160 percent inside of 12 months.
In November 2018, PLG announced the firm’s second organic expansion with the opening of its Dallas, Texas, office
and the commencement of full-service default legal services statewide. Anchoring the Dallas office is the firm’s
new Managing Attorney of Bankruptcy Operations, Keena Newmark, Esq. PLG’s bankruptcy practice is national and
covers the continental United States, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
