Collection Lawyers Versus Collection Agencies

When collecting debt, your company should be aware of the differences between using a collection agency to collect your company’s money versus using the collection lawyers at a debt collection law firm. Collection agencies are very limited in what they can legally do to attempt to collect past due accounts. Collection agencies can only send demand letters and make debt collection phone calls. A collection lawyer not only is able to make collection calls to recover past due accounts, but can send demand letters for payment.   The power of a collection lawyer signing a demand letter for payment has a much bigger impact than a debtor receiving a demand letter from a collection agency.  When a debtor receives a letter from a collection lawyer, they are made aware that litigation may be imminent to collect on the debt.

Senior Debt Collector Joins The Gebeloff Law Group

A Commercial Collection Law Firm

The Gebeloff Law Group has added a Senior Debt Collector to its staff. The addition of the debt collector will assist Mr. Gebeloff in securing prelitigation  payments from debtors. The philosophy of The Gebeloff Law Group is to provide its clients commercial debt collection services in an effective and cost efficient manner. If voluntary payment is not obtained prior to litigation, the debt collector will help gather valuable information about the debtor, including, but not limited to, the nature of the dispute, assets the debtor may or may not have and/ or if the debtor’s officers may have set up other entities in an effort to defraud creditors.

We have discussed in prior blogs the difference between our commercial debt collection law firm and commercial collection agencies. Collection agencies also use debt collectors but, too many times debt collectors are limited in their effectiveness as they are constrained. Collection agencies are not licensed to practice law. A commercial collection agency must eventually send your debt collection case to a collection attorney if the collection agency is unable to collect on your company’s past due account receivable. The collection agency then will charge the creditor a higher contingent collection rate.

 

Our debt collector will also work on post judgment collections. Too many times after a judgment is obtained, not enough pressure is brought upon a debtor to make payments to satisfy the judgment. Commercial collection agencies cannot bring proceedings supplementary to implead third parties and/or pursue third parties for fraudulent transfers. We are optimistic that the addition of our Senior Debt Collector to our staff will increase the percentage of the recovery of bad debt our clients send to our commercial collection law firm.

Please feel free to call our debt collection law firm and ask to speak to one our experienced debt collection staff. We would be happy to discuss the differences between using a collection agency, collection agencies and/or using a collection attorney with a commercial collection law firm to collect your pre-judgment or post judgment debt.

The Purpose of an Attorney Demand Letter in a Collection Case

Upon receipt of a new claim in our office, our lawyers send  a debt collection demand letter to the debtor. Our law firm demands that payment be made for the amount that is due and owing to our debt collection clients. The collection demand letter sent to the debtor serves several purposes. The first is to let the debtor know that our collection firm has been retained by the creditor. We are also able to determine if the address is valid to serve the summons and debt collection lawsuit on the defendant if  our collection attorneys  are unable  resolve the matter pre-litigation.

During this initial period of time, our collection attorneys will also determine the corporate identity of the debtor. The lawyers from our debt collection law firm will make telephone demands on the debtor. Our collection firm strives to give our  debt collection clients an assessment as to the prospects of collecting their money on their past due receivables. In this tough economy our attorneys try  to determine if there is a legitimate dispute on the account, the debtor has cash flow problems or simply is flat out ignoring demand for payment of the debt.

Please feel free to contact our collection law firm and speak to our Florida collection lawyer about the specifics facts surrounding your Florida debt collection case. You may mail or email your supporting documents to our collection firm. Our Florida collection attorney will review your account and then contact you to devise a strategy for your collection matter.
