Collection agencies are unable to start suit to collect money. A collection agency is not licensed to practice debt collection law. Collection agencies send out a series of collection letters and then attempt to collect money by making repeated phone calls.

Use a Florida Collection Attorney to Collect Money
Once judgment is entered, there are many different post judgment options that our collection attorney will discuss with you. Simply a collection agency is limited in what it can do to collect money. Collection agencies do have their purpose, but creditors typically find that placing an account for collection with a collection attorney has many advantages over placing an account for collection with a commercial collection agency.
Florida Collection Agencies Differ From Florida Collection Law Firms
Many creditors continue to send past due accounts to Florida collection agencies. Florida collection agencies send demand letters for payment to your customers that owe money. A collection agency can make debt collection phone calls to attempt to recover your company’s past due accounts. Many creditors come to our debt collection law firm after their account has been with a collection agency. What our collection attorney finds after reviewing the delinquent account is that a collection agency holds on to the past due account for too long. Florida collection agencies loss profit when they need to forward your collection account to a debt collection law firm. The reason is that the collection agency has to split the contingent collection fee with the debt collection lawyer.
Florida Collection Agencies and Fictitious Collection Agency Names
Our law firm is not a Florida collection agency. Florida collection agencies are not licensed to practice law. We see many Florida collection agencies take on fictitious names that lead not only companies to believe they are a Florida debt collection law firm, but deceptively try to lead your customers that they are collection attorneys licensed to practice debt collection law. By way of example, a Florida collection agency will take on the fictitious name Jones, Williams and Smith. The Florida collection agency then instructs their debt collectors to make collection calls stating they are with the firm of Jones, Williams and Smith. That is a highly deceptive practice misleading your customers who are in collection to believe they are being contacted by debt collection attorneys from a Florida debt recovery law firm.
