Collecting Debt in December – Collection Attorney Can Help

Debt Collection -Recovery  in December – Not the Most Wonderful Time of the Year to Collect Money

December brings the holidays and with it small business owners not only having to pay their suppliers, but also have the added pressure of having to buy presents for their friends and families. Our debt collection law firm has noticed a trend that many of the companies who we make collection calls to attempt to recover our clients’ past due account receivable   overwhelmingly have the same outcome – “We really do not have the money to pay this invoice and/or  open account.”  Our collection attorneys have noticed that cash flow for most small businesses is on the decline making it harder for our clients to secure timely payments on their account receivable.

Collection Law Firm Florida

Collection law firm – Collection Attorney

Our collection attorney law firm believes that in most cases it takes a collection lawsuit to get the attention of your customer. Until a lawsuit is brought to collect on your company’s open account receivable, your customer may be out buying holiday presents for their friends and family, rather than paying your company on past due invoices.  When it comes to collection money, our collection lawyers believe that time is not on your side.  The more legal pressure that is put on your customer to pay past due invoices, the greater are the chances to recover the money due and owing to your company.  A collection agency is not always the best option to collect money.

We Are Not a Collection Agency

When you call our debt collection law firm, you will be able to speak to our collection attorney to devise a debt collection strategy that best fits the needs of your company and takes into account the financial position of  the customer who owes your company money.

Hurricane Irma – Harder to Collect Money in Florida

Collecting  Money Owed After Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma has brought the Florida economy to a halt. The strain on small businesses may make it harder for your company to collect money from customers to whom you have extended credit.   Hurricane Irma has caused many businesses to board up and close.  This will obviously have an economic impact on everyone and may make it more difficult for your customer to make payments that are  due  because of  cash flow issues.  Once the storm clears,  and things get back to “ business as usual” in Florida,  it is important for your business to stay on top of their collection accounts.

Collection Lawyers - Collection Attorneys

Collection Attorney – Debt Collection Law Firm

Our debt collection law firm is sympathetic to cash flow problems that small businesses may encounter. However, unless your company stays on top of collecting money owed to your company, your company’s account receivable may end up on the bottom of the stack of invoices your customer must pay.  Our collection attorney will make demand for payment and stress the urgency that your customer make payment arrangements to pay the debt owed to your company.  If payment arrangements are not made, our debt collection law firm will recommend that suit be started to collect the money.

Call Our Debt Collection Law Firm

Once a lawsuit is commenced to collect the money owed to your company, if your customer is serious about paying the past due invoices, a payment schedule can be set up. The payment schedule would be filed with the court. If the customer missed a payment, your company would be able to secure a judgment for the amount owed to your company.   Litigation does not always secure payment of money owed to your company.   However, once suit is filed your customer should feel the urgency to get the debt owed to your company resolved.

Collecting Money in Florida – Collection Agency – Florida Collection Attorney

In past blogs, we have discussed the difference between using a Florida commercial collection agency rather than a Florida debt collection attorney. Collection agencies are not licensed to practice debt collection law. A collection agency typically will make collection calls and send a few collection letters to your customer to collect your money. If the collection agency is not successful, they then have to charge you a higher contingency fee and send the case  to a collection lawyer.

Debt collection Law Firm Florida

Florida collection law firm

A  debt collection law firm contacting your customer first to make demand for payment, has a bigger impact than your customer receiving a collection letter from a commercial collection agency.  A debt collection lawyer  after sending a demand letter  and calling your customer demanding payment, can then recommend that a lawsuit be started to recover the money that is owed to your company.

Florida Debt Recovery Law Firm

Once a lawsuit is started to recover your money, your company now has greater control over the debt collection process.  Your customer will either recognize the debt and attempt to make payment arrangements with our office – hire an attorney, if there is a legitimate dispute to the debt or ignore the debt collection lawsuit. If the lawsuit is ignored, your company would be entitled to have a default judgment entered against your customer for the amount of the open invoices, costs and interest as allowed under Florida Law.

Debt Collection Demand Letters

Pre-litigation demand letters may be an effective way for creditors to save on paying contingent collection fees. The Gebeloff Law Group is about to launch a new division, AttorneyDemandLetters.com. The program will give creditors two options to choose from:

1) A Demand letter would be sent to the debtor   urging the debtor to make payment arrangements directly to the creditor. The Demand Letter program is for a flat fee. Gebeloff is looking to save creditors from paying high contingent collection fees to commercial collection agencies when a Demand Letter from a commercial collection attorney may be all that is needed to convince the debtor to pay the creditor.

Debt collection demand letter

2) The second option adds a phone call from our commercial collection law firm. The call would be placed by a commercial collection attorney directly to the debtor. The debt collection letter coupled with a debt collection phone call from a collection lawyer will give the debtor a sense of urgency that they should consider paying the creditor before the possibility of incurring additional legal fees and costs defending a debt collection law suit. The Gebeloff Law Group again would simply charge a flat fee for this debt collection service.   If the pre-litigation collection service is not successful, the creditor would then be given the option to pursue the past due collection account in the more traditional manner once the claim is placed in The Gebeloff Law Group’s debt collection litigation cue.

The Gebeloff Law Group has teamed up with ScaleUp Consulting, a Miami based agency to help promote the Attorney Demand Letter program and set up technology so clients as well as potential clients can login and place their accounts for debt collection. The Scale Up Consulting team has been very easy to work with and help our commercial debt collection law firm take their vision and make the vision a reality.

Call the collection attorneys at the Gebeloff Law Group to discuss all your company’s debt collection needs. We are always happy to devise a debt collection strategy that is customized for all our client’s debt recovery needs.
