Attorney Demand Letter for Payment is Effective Debt Collection Tool
Sending a demand letter for payment when trying to collect account receivable puts your client on notice that your company is preparing to send the account to a third party to collect if payment arrangements are not made. We have written about the differences between commercial collection agencies and commercial debt collection law firms. Creditors that use a collection agency end up paying higher contingent fees upon collection of the account when the collection agency sends the account to a collection attorney when the collection agency cannot collect on the debt without litigation. Collection agencies are not licensed to practice law.
Demand Letter for Payment May Save Your Company Money
The Gebeloff Law Group has started an attorney demand letter program for creditors seeking to recover past due collection accounts. The attorney demand letter for payment advises your customer that this is their last attempt to make payment arrangements before your company may decide to pursue legal action to collect on the debt. The demand letter for payment also serves a purpose to verify that the customer still has an active mailing address so that in the event litigation is necessary to collect on the debt, the sheriff will be able to serve a summons and complaint.
Our law firm offers creditors a flat rate for sending a demand letter for payment. The demand for payment instructs your customer to make payment arrangements directly with your company. By offering a flat fee, our clients may save money because they will not have to pay a commercial collection agency a contingent fee which usually ranges between twenty and thirty-five percent.
Many creditors look to our law firm to provide complete debt collection services. Our demand letter for payment is just one tool for debt collection that our law firm provides. We invite companies to call our firm and see if sending an attorney demand letter for payment of past due accounts is right for their company. If the attorney demand letter for payment is not effective alternative collection tactics can be explored.
