About Us

Principal Attorney:
Josephine Yang-Patyi

I am a passionate advocate for creditors and claimants, especially continuing care service providers, in different forums. I have focused my practice in the areas of collection of accounts receivable and recovery of assets for continuing care and other health care providers throughout New York and Pennsylvania. My approach to each matter is bottom-line oriented and wholistic; I strive to attain the best business results for my clients and understand that it is better to be paid cash than to have a judgment against a debtor with exempt income and assets only.

My continuing care service practice consists of representation of continuing care service providers and hospitals in collection and asset recovery matters in Supreme Court, Surrogate's Court and Bankruptcy Court; commencement of guardianship proceedings for residents on behalf of facilities; assistance of continuing care service providers in their implementation of better admission and collection procedures; review of facilities' "Medicaid pending" cases to determine residentsí Medicaid eligibility; in-house training to continuing care providers; prosecution of appeals of Medicaid decisions at Fair Hearings, Article 78 Proceedings and in the Appellate Divisions; and enforcement of judgments.

I regularly handle litigation in cases involving creditor's rights, commercial/business disputes, contract disputes, fraudulent conveyances, fraud, estate administration, employment discrimination, and mechanicís liens, as well as post-judgment enforcement. I have represented creditors and debtors in bankruptcy appeals and defended avoidance actions in bankruptcy proceedings throughout the United States. I've successfully conducted non-jury trials in bankruptcy courts, state courts and hearings before administrative agencies. Further, I regularly serve as a court-appointed referee in foreclosure and partition cases.

I am the Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel of Results! Dental Collection Services, LLC d/b/a Results! Collection Services, a claims agent and collection service agency that currently serve creditors, especially dental and medical providers in ten different states. I am also the President of ProAction Revenue Management, LLC, a consulting firm that specializes in cash recovery and cash management for continuing care service providers, hospitals and physicians' groups.

I have lectured and presented on recovery issues for the New York State Bar Association and before health care providers and long term care associations. I am currently representing my clients in cases pending in Onondaga, Cortland, Oswego, Madison, Jefferson, Oneida, Cayuga, Otsego, Chenango, Herkimer, Lewis, St. Lawrence, Broome, Delaware, Tioga, Tompkins, Chemung, Montgomery, Ontario and Monroe Counties.

I am fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
