Guide to Internal Debt Collection Procedures

Past blog posts have addressed the major differences between commercial collection agencies, collection law firms and debt collection attorneys. A collection agency does serve a purpose in some instances when your company may have a high volume of collection accounts with small balances where repeated debt collection calls may be all that is needed to collect your company’s money. However, collection agencies are not licensed to practice law. A commercial debt collection law firm gives creditors a stronger approach to attempting to recover the company’s past due account receivable.

Collection Agency of Collection Attorney Letter Demanding Payment

Our debt collection law firm has set up a new attorney demand letter service. For a flat fee our collection lawyer will draft a letter demanding payment of your company’s past due account. Putting the power of an attorney behind your demand for payment will let your customer know your company is serious about pursuing collection of the account.  If the demand letter fro payment does not result in your company receiving payment, our collection law firm can tailor a more traditional debt collection strategy which may include litigation to attempt to recover your money.

Call Our Debt Collection Law Firm

When you call our debt collection law firm one of our collection attorneys will speak to you about your company’s collection policies and procedures. Together we will work on a debt collection strategy that is right of your company, whether simply a letter demanding payment or starting a lawsuit to collect on the past due account receivable.

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.

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.

The sub-title of the debt collection book is “Don’t Let Your Company’s Money Burn.”

Collecting your money-Debt collection methods

Guide to Internal Debt Collection Procedures

The debt collection attorneys at our commercial collection law firm believe that if more companies were more proactive with their internal procedures relating to collecting their past due accounts, they would find that there would be a higher rate of recovery on accounts that they extend credit to.

The eBook discusses the differences between collection agencies and collection law firms. Using a commercial collection agency can be useful in some situations. However, credit managers should be mindful that a collection agency is not licensed to practice law. When using collection agencies, if the collection agency is unable to collect on an account, they then must send the file to a commercial collection law firm. The collection agency will charge your company a higher contingency fee as the collection agency will act as a middleman and want to retain a percentage of the contingency fee.

 

The eBook also discusses the debt collection process once a file is turned over to either a collection agency or debt collection law firm. Once a lawsuit is filed to attempt collection of past due accounts, the various scenarios are discussed.   The e-Book gives an outline of the debt collection process. The collection attorneys at The Gebeloff Law Group are always happy to answer any questions your company may have. We will discuss the differences between commercial collection agencies, commercial collection law firms and how each may or may not be appropriate to help your company recover past due accounts.
