Unclaimed Property

Unclaimed Property Attorneys

Right now, there are state-run trust funds across the country that are sitting on billions of dollars in unclaimed property that are owed to individuals and businesses. This property comes from a variety of sources, but for one reason or another, that property never makes it where it is supposed to, causing them to fall under the protection of the government. However, these state-run trust funds are not going to come to you to tell you they have your property. If you want to claim that unclaimed property, you will need someone who can recover it for you. The asset recovery lawyers at Poulson Law recently recovered a single asset worth $1.4 million which had been held by a state trust fund for 30 years.

Our attorneys have decades of forensic experience in tracing title to unclaimed property from a variety of sources, including:

  • Legal settlements and awards
  • Tax rebates
  • Bankruptcy claims
  • Defunct bank accounts
  • Assets lost during employee turnover
  • Property lost during office closures
  • Property held under old company names
  • Property lost due to damaged/lost records

Poulson Law represents debtors-in-possession and their successors and assigns in identifying and recovering assets that were abandoned or otherwise unclaimed by liquidating entities. While corporations and other organizations that liquidate their assets are supposed to take steps to ensure that property goes where it is supposed to, a combination of circumstance can lead to assets remaining unclaimed.

Let the unclaimed property attorneys at Poulson Law help you recover what is rightfully yours. We can help you recover unclaimed property, and ensure your assets return where they belong. With billions of unclaimed assets sitting in state funds, you potentially have a great deal to gain.
