Ore. AG Announces Shutdown of Debt-Collection Law Firm

The state attorney general of Oregon announced today an agreement under which a law firm has been closed and one of its name partners agreed to give up his license to practice after multiple alleged violations of state and federal debt-collection law.

A press release details the accusations against McGavic & Finney and founding partner Derrick McGavic, who will also pay $70,000, according to AG John Kroger.

A phone call placed by the ABA Journal to a number listed for McGavic’s office reached the Law Office of Kristan K. Finney, which apparently is a debt collection firm run by his former partner. A message seeking comment did not receive an immediate response.
