Johnny Stewart lawyer

Clawson and Staubes is ready and willing to assist creditors, lenders, banks, financial institutions, businesses and individuals navigate the legal process throughout state and federal courts in South Carolina from the vantage point of our Columbia office. Our creditors’ rights attorneys are well-equipped to handle a wide variety of legal matters in the area of debtor / creditor law, including foreclosure, bankruptcy, collections, repossession, judgment enforcement and evictions.


The team of attorneys and staff at Clawson and Staubes in the foreclosure group are eager to provide our clients with quality representation while delivering quick and efficient results at the least expense practicable to the client. We represent national, regional, and local mortgage lenders and servicers throughout South Carolina in both commercial and residential foreclosures. Where possible, we strive to avoid foreclosures recognizing that turning a defaulting loan into a performing asset is often the most-desired result for all parties involved in a foreclosure action. This can be accomplished through loss mitigation efforts, loan workouts, and other retention and non-retention options. However, our team is focused on providing dispositive results when a resolution cannot be achieved through these means. Our attorneys are experienced handling cases through all stages of the foreclosure process. We frequently handle contested, litigated, title curative, and post-sale eviction matters commonly encountered when prosecuting foreclosure actions.
