Hunt & Kahn, P.A.                                                  1-800-777-2602

A Florida Law Firm Advocating for Creditor's Rights




Hunt & Kahn, P.A., was established in 1977 as Bruce E. Wagner, P.A. as a law firm whose primary focus was criminal defense.  In 1980, the firm began representing creditors and several years later phased out its criminal law practice in favor of debt collection, accounts receivable management, and general civil litigation.  The firm has undergone several name changes over the years but its mission remains the same.  In 2005 the firm name was changed from Bruce E. Wagner, P.A. to Wagner & Hunt, P.A. in recognition of Deryl Hunt becoming a member.  In 2012 the firm underwent a name change to Wagner, Hunt & Kahn, P.A. in recognition of Jeffrey Kahn becoming a member.  Finally, in 2013 the firm name was changed to Hunt & Kahn, P.A. as founding partner Bruce Wagner announced his intention to step back and phase into retirement.
