 Collection Agencies Have Limitations

For most small businesses, having to engage in collecting past due accounts becomes frustrating. For small business owners cash flow is crucial to keeping the lights on and the business up and running.   Having to take the time and resources to attempt to collect past due accounts internally takes away from the time the business should be focusing on their core business.  There are commercial collection agencies to consider. But, perhaps a better alternative is utilizing debt collection law firms who focus their practice on representing business that are owed money. We have talked in past blogs about the limitations of using a collection agency to collect your company’s money.

Collection Agencies Are Not Licensed to Practice Debt Collection Law

A collection agency cannot hold themselves out as a  debt collection law firm nor can they legally practice debt collection law.  Collection agencies send a series of collection letters and then attempt to collect past due accounts by making debt collection telephone calls demanding payment.  Collection agencies also typically will charge a contingent collection fee between 25% to 40%.   If a lawsuit is required to sue a debtor for your money, the agencies typically will raise the contingent fee even higher.

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.

How Fast Can Judgment Be Obtained in a Debt Collection Case

How Fast Can Judgment Be Obtained in a Debt Collection Case

Our debt collection client’s frequently ask our collection attorneys-lawyers how long will it take to collect their companies past due account receivables. It is important to note that every debt collection case is unique. Below we will summarize what to expect when your account receivable manager places an account for debt collection with our law firm.

If after a debt collection lawsuit is filed by our collection law firm, the debtor files no responsive pleading to the complaint, twenty (20) days after the summons is served, default will be entered. Thereafter, our debt collection client simply has to execute an affidavit of proof and our collection lawyers-attorneys will prepare a Motion for Default Judgment. In this scenario Judgment can be obtained anywhere from thirty (30) to forty-five (45) days.

Debt Collection Case

Debt Collection Case

If a debt collection case is disputed by a debtor, the timing of a debt collection case depends on the dollar amount of the account receivable. In Florida, if a debt collection account is under $15,000.00 that would put the account in the jurisdiction of the Florida County Court Judicial System. In Florida, debt collection cases filed in the County Court typically go to trial within four to six months after the debt collection case is filed. Debt collection cases filed by our debt collection law firm in Florida that have an account receivable above $15,000.00, put the account in the Jurisdiction of the Circuit Court. Cases in this jurisdiction typically take longer to go to trial than debt collection cases that are filed in the County Court.

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.
