Creditors often ask us what the difference is between using a Florida collection agency or several Florida collection agencies as opposed to using a Florida Collection Attorney or Florida Collection Law Firm. Florida collection agencies do have their purpose. If you are looking for a debt collection strategy that sends out collection letters to debtors and then follows up with repeated calls demanding payment, a collection agency may work when the age of the account receivable is not that old. But, over time, or even now with businesses having a harder time with their cash flow, collection letters and phone calls from a Florida collection agency may not be enough to get your money collected.
When you use a Florida debt collection law firm or a Florida collection attorney or lawyer, the Florida collection lawyer will be able to start a lawsuit to help you effectuate collection. Receiving a summons and a complaint on a collection case starts the clock ticking for the debtor. The debtor now either knows it will have to offer a plan to settle the collection suit, hire a lawyer to defend the Florida collection lawsuit filed by the lawyer. If the debtor fails to respond, the Florida collection lawyer and or Florida collection law firm will be able to move to enter default judgment. The Florida collection lawyer will be able to then begin to look for assets to garnish.
In summary, Florida collection agencies at times can get the results a creditor is looking for. But, in the end, the urgency for the debtor to act to pay a creditor money that is due is much stronger when the collection demand for payment comes from a Florida collection lawyer or law firm.
