We Identify the Reason for Non-Payment

When our collection attorney contacts your customer, we can ascertain whether the reason for non-payment are legitimate or an attempt to avoid paying your company.  Business debtors are often accomplished at evasive tactics.  Our debt collection law firm knows that there are many debtors who are making payments at a slow pace, and not thinking about paying you interest. Our collection attorney will make it clear that an amicable payment arrangement needs to be made. Without a concrete promise for payment, our debt collection law firm recognizes that your company most likely will continue to be dragged out and paid when the debtor wants to pay, if ever.  Today companies are not afraid to play the corporate shell game. They close their business and open under another corporate name. A blatant attempt to avoid paying your company’s receivable.

Collecting debt in Florida is not always a straight forward process.  Florida is known as one of the friendliest States for debtors to reside. There are many exemptions in place that makes it hard to attach assets when you hold a valid judgment.   Gebeloff believes that, in part, through his marathon training, he is able to look at each collection case that he  is retained, as  not a short sprint, but  a process that  takes time and a sound debt collection strategy put into place.   Our debt collection law firm has been representing creditors in all industries for many years and is very familiar with the delays and stall tactics debtors will try to employ to keep  our debt collection clients from recovering the money that is justly owed to them.

Statute of limitations on debt collection cases in Florida are five years for written contracts and four years for oral contracts.

When an account receivable is placed for collection relating to goods sold and delivered the statute of limitations is four years.  Our debt collection attorney will confirm to you that when attempting collection of account receivable, the earlier you place your claim with our Florida debt collection law firm or with a commercial collection agency for that matter, the odds of being able to collect your money increase.

Collection Agency – Collection Attorney – Collection Agencies

 Collection Agency  or Debt Collection Law Firm

As the economy continues to struggle, our debt collection attorneys continue to contact businesses attempting to collect money on past due accounts. Our collection lawyers are finding many honest business owners admitting to owing the debt, but because of their own personal cash flow struggles are not able to pay the debt in a lump sum payment. Our debt collection law firm is entering into many  debt repayment plans.  Creditors should keep in mind that until a matter is in in suit, there is no real teeth in the debt repayment plan. Many times, our collection attorney will recommend starting suit to recover money and then enter into a repayment plan secured by a court order.

Florida Collection Agencies - Florida Collection Agency

Florida Collection Attorney Gebeloff

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.   Many times a collection agency will try to collect the account for an extended period of time when in reality a debt collection attorney  will  be more effective. The debt collection law firm is able to file a lawsuit to collect past due accounts. The collection lawyer will then be able to either settle the account or secure a judgment for the amount that is owed.

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.

Hurricane Irma – Harder to Collect Money in Florida

Collecting Money Owed After Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma has brought the Florida economy to a halt. Pretty much the only businesses working at the moment are those working to clean up the debris, tree removal companies and restoration services for properties affected by the hurricane. Whether businesses can’t get employees in to work, the office is damaged or no one will be wanting to purchase their products, a lot of businesses are stuck in the mud. The strain on small businesses may make it harder for your company to collect money from customers to whom you have extended credit. Hurricane Irma has caused many businesses to board up and close. This will obviously have an economic impact on everyone and may make it more difficult for your customer to make payments that are due because of cash flow issues. Once the storm clears, and things get back to ” business as usual” in Florida, it is important for your business to stay on top of their collection accounts.

Collection Lawyers - Collection Attorneys

Collection Attorney – Debt Collection Law Firm

Our debt collection law firm is sympathetic to cash flow problems that small businesses may encounter. However, unless your company stays on top of collecting money owed to your company, your company’s account receivable may end up on the bottom of the stack of invoices your customer must pay. Our collection attorney will make demand for payment and stress the urgency that your customer make payment arrangements to pay the debt owed to your company. If payment arrangements are not made, our debt collection law firm will recommend that suit be started to collect the money.

Call Our Debt Collection Law Firm

Once a lawsuit is commenced to collect the money owed to your company, if your customer is serious about paying the past due invoices, a payment schedule can be set up. The payment schedule would be filed with the court. If the customer missed a payment, your company would be able to secure a judgment for the amount owed to your company. Litigation does not always secure payment of money owed to your company. However, once suit is filed your customer should feel the urgency to get the debt owed to your company resolved.

Debt Collection – Collection Law Firm or Collection Agency

Collecting on Past Due Accounts Using a Collection Agency or Debt Collection Law Firm

For small business owners, collecting on past due accounts from your company’s customers is time consuming and keeps you from focusing on your company’s core business.  Because of that, many businesses turn to commercial collection agencies and or debt collection law firms to assist with debt collection efforts.  A collection agency can offer some value for those companies that have many small balance accounts that need to be sent to outside collection.  However, as we have previously talked about in previous articles is the fact that collection agencies are not licensed to practice law. A collection agency must send accounts to collection attorneys and debt collection law firms for further debt collection efforts once it is determined that the collection agency will be unable to collect on the past due debt. In doing so the collection agency raises its contingent collection fee.

Collection Agencies Can Serve a Limited Purpose

Debt collection law firms send out demand letters as well as make debt collection calls to your customers just as a commercial collection agency would do.  However, a major distinction between a collection agency and a debt collection law firm is that the demand for payment of your company’s past due accounts will come from a collection lawyer.  Receiving a demand letter for payment from a collection attorney lets your customer know that your company is prepared to take your customer to court if an amicable resolution to the past due account cannot be reached. In addition, your company will not have to pay an inflated contingency fee by sending accounts directly to a collection law firm as your company will not have to pay the collection agency an extra fee for simply sending the past due account to a collection law firm.
