The Rodenburg Law Firm represents collection agencies, commercial forwarders, lending institutions, auto and consumer finance companies, debt buyers, state colleges, health care organizations, and other creditors in credit matters including consumer and commercial collections. We trace our origins to 1976 when now senior partner Clifton Rodenburg set up shop with Bruce Johnson and Roger Gackle with one secretary, an IBM Selectric typewriter, and four telephones. In the 1980s, we were the first law firm in North Dakota to computerize collections and one of the few in the country to have a multi-jurisdictional collection practice. In 1981, Mr. Rodenburg authored the current North Dakota garnishment statutes. In 1993, he was in the first group of fewer than 50 lawyers in the country, and the first lawyer in North Dakota, to become certified in Creditors' Rights Law by the Academy of Commercial and Bankruptcy Law Specialists.
