The Debt Collection Process

When an account is sent to our law firm for debt collection, the first step our collection lawyer takes is to check the corporate status of the debtor. If the corporation is dissolved, our collectors begin to look into whether the officers and/or directors of the entity have formed a new corporation. If so, our collection attorney will discuss with you pursuing the new entity and its officers for the debt.

 Our law firm will send a demand letter for collection.   Our law firm also makes collection calls to attempt to collect your money before recommending a lawsuit.  If our demands to collect your money go unheeded, we then proceed with a lawsuit to collect your money. Once suit is filed, there are several scenarios. The debtor can ignore the suit, in that case a default judgment is entered.  The debtor faced with a lawsuit, now pay the outstanding account receivable, or offer a payment plan. The defendant in the collection lawsuit may retain counsel and contest the lawsuit.  Many times, when a debtor hires a lawyer to contest the suit, it is a delay tactic. Our collection attorney will aggressively attempt to move the case to trial to avoid further delays.

There are many scenarios that occur when collecting a judgment.  Our debt collect team welcomes you to call our law firm and ask to speak to our collection attorney about your debt collection case.  We would be happy to discuss your collection case and devise a debt collection strategy   for you.
