Legal Services for Financial Institution

WHO WE ARE

McMichael Taylor Gray, LLC (“MTG”) is a full-service default and creditor right law firm delivering quality, cost-effective legal services for financial institutions throughout most of the southeast. The founding partners of MTG established a forward-thinking, client-focused law firm, centered on an unwavering commitment to the following core values: excellence; integrity; honesty; and respect.

BIG SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY SIZE LENDER

From the outset, MTG’s ambitious goal of growth and expansion to serve the needs and expectations of its clients, while strictly adhering to the firm’s core values, has resulted in a law firm of dedicated, responsible, and competent professionals.

In the age of high volume, low touch firms, MTG takes a special interest in each client, providing the same level of service and value we seek in our own business relationships. As a result, MTG is committed to providing results for your default needs. Regardless if you are a community bank, a multi-state or national lending institution, MTG has a solution for you.

What We Do   

OUR COMMITMENT TO OUR CLIENTS

At MTG, we understand our clients are often operating from a position of loss in managing their non-performing portfolios. Our commitment to assisting our clients in customizing a strategy unique to their needs is our number one priority. With this in mind, we are dedicated to providing superior legal services for financial institutions in a cost-effective manner, while maintaining the highest standards. Please leverage our growth, services, and legal footprint to your advantage; however, it is our promise that the size of our firm will never outgrow our commitment to you.
