Get Paid With PACA

Dooley Gembala helps growers and marketers when they have customers who are slow to pay or don't pay at all. We use the Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act (PACA) to protect our clients and make sure they get paid. Our services include representing clients in federal lawsuits related to PACA, working with the USDA on administrative actions, helping clients as creditors in bankruptcy cases, and advocating in other settings.

Many lawyers aren't familiar with PACA because it's a unique set of laws that only applies to the produce industry. However, at Dooley Gembala, we have extensive experience with PACA and use it regularly to help our clients.
