Proven advocate asserts your rights through the collections process
When customers or clients fail to make payments for the goods or services your company has provided them with, we can help you hold them to account. We assist with collection actions that include these tasks:
- Receipt and review of your files — Our firm will analyze your records to determine the debt amount and type, how late the payments are, and any correspondence between your business and the debtor that has ensued.
- Demand letter — Our attorney will send a letter to your debtor demanding payment. If the debtor responds to the letter, we work with you to see if circumstances warrant discounting the debt or setting up a payment schedule that can be met.
- Lawsuit — If litigation is the best course of action, we will work to obtain a favorable result as quickly as possible. Although rare, if trial becomes necessary, our attorney will vigorously defend your right in court to collect the payment you're entitled to.
- Judgment — Depending on the court's judgment, we can attach liens on the debtor’s real estate and move to file wage garnishments to secure payment on the debt. These garnishments take money from the debtor’s bank account, paychecks and any other sources of income. If we cannot locate a debtor’s place of employment, we can compel the debtor to appear in court for a post-judgment deposition and testify about the finances.
- Enforcement — If the debtor fails to appear at the deposition, our attorney can file for contempt of court. We usually reach out to the debtor before this becomes necessary, but we won't hesitate to take action when other collection attempts fail.
We understand the laws governing debt collection and will advise you on the most efficient and timely course of action to recover the payments you're entitled to. We are persistent and assertive and will work to compel debtors to meet their obligations to your business.
