Collection Lawyers Versus Collection Agencies
When collecting debt, your company should be aware of the differences between using a collection agency to collect your company’s money versus using the collection lawyers at a debt collection law firm. Collection agencies are very limited in what they can legally do to attempt to collect past due accounts. Collection agencies can only send demand letters and make debt collection phone calls. A collection lawyer not only is able to make collection calls to recover past due accounts, but can send demand letters for payment. The power of a collection lawyer signing a demand letter for payment has a much bigger impact than a debtor receiving a demand letter from a collection agency. When a debtor receives a letter from a collection lawyer, they are made aware that litigation may be imminent to collect on the debt.

In past blogs, we have discussed the difference between using a Florida commercial collection agency rather than a Florida debt collection attorney. Collection agencies are not licensed to practice debt collection law. A collection agency typically will make collection calls and send a few collection letters to your customer to collect your money. If the collection agency is not successful, they then have to charge you a higher contingency fee and send the case to a collection lawyer.
Florida collection law firm
A debt collection law firm contacting your customer first to make demand for payment, has a bigger impact than your customer receiving a collection letter from a commercial collection agency. A debt collection lawyer after sending a demand letter and calling your customer demanding payment, can then recommend that a lawsuit be started to recover the money that is owed to your company.
Florida Debt Recovery Law Firm
Once a lawsuit is started to recover your money, your company now has greater control over the debt collection process. Your customer will either recognize the debt and attempt to make payment arrangements with our office – hire an attorney, if there is a legitimate dispute to the debt or ignore the debt collection lawsuit. If the lawsuit is ignored, your company would be entitled to have a default judgment entered against your customer for the amount of the open invoices, costs and interest as allowed under Florida Law.

Thanksgiving means a lot of different things to different people. However, for a small business it may be time to start looking at different areas of the business that may need adjustments to better help with the overall cash flow of the business. Collecting on past due account receivables and/or setting up credit and collection procedures for your company may be one of those areas that with paying closer attention to collecting past due accounts, might make a difference.
Collection Law Firm to Collect Past Due Accounts
Commercial Collection Agency
Our debt collection law firm offers small businesses a variety of options to consider. Commercial collection agencies are one way, but our collection attorney has discussed in past blogs the difference between a collection agency to collect past due accounts and a collection lawyer in a debt recovery law firm to collect your company’s past due account receivable.
Our Collection Attorneys Can Help Collect Past Due Account Receivable
Our firm has recently added a flat fee commercial demand letter for payment of debt. Our clients were asking us for examples or templates of collection letters but, most found that a debt collection letter coming from a collection attorney was more effective than the company simply sending a letter demanding payment. A company should send a demand letter for payment first, but after time passes it will become apparent when a company is simply stalling or cannot pay on the past due account. If your company is interested in exploring our debt collection law firm’s flat fee letter to collect on past due accounts, feel free to visit our website.
Of course, or debt collection firm offers the same traditional collection agency services – letters and phone calls, but unlike a commercial collection agency, our commercial collection lawyers will be able to bring suit to attempt collection of your company’s past due account receivable when warranted.
Implementing an effective debt collection strategy for your company
Collection Attorney, Stephen Gebeloff is set to release his eBook to help companies with internal debt collection and external debt collection policies and procedures. The eBook is entitled “Collecting Account Receivables.” The eBook was written to help companies tighten up their internal collection procedures. The sub-title of the debt collection book is “Don’t Let Your Company’s Money Burn.”
Guide to Internal Debt Collection Procedures
The debt collection attorneys at our commercial collection law firm believe that if more companies were more proactive with their internal procedures relating to collecting their past due accounts, they would find that there would be a higher rate of recovery on accounts that they extend credit to.
The eBook discusses the differences between collection agencies and collection law firms. Using a commercial collection agency can be useful in some situations. However, credit managers should be mindful that a collection agency is not licensed to practice law. When using collection agencies, if the collection agency is unable to collect on an account, they then must send the file to a commercial collection law firm. The collection agency will charge your company a higher contingency fee as the collection agency will act as a middleman and want to retain a percentage of the contingency fee.
The eBook also discusses the debt collection process once a file is turned over to either a collection agency or debt collection law firm. Once a lawsuit is filed to attempt collection of past due accounts, the various scenarios are discussed. The e-Book gives an outline of the debt collection process. The collection attorneys at The Gebeloff Law Group are always happy to answer any questions your company may have. We will discuss the differences between commercial collection agencies, commercial collection law firms and how each may or may not be appropriate to help your company recover past due accounts.
Using a Florida Collection Agency or Florida Collection Agencies
Florida collection agencies continue to collect debt in Florida. A collection agency in Florida needs to register with the State of Florida to have a collection agency license. A Florida collection agency may be a good fit for company that has a high volume of low balance claims for collection that are too small to justify filing a debt collection law suit. Florida collection agencies typically send our collection letters and then use debt collectors to make debt collection phone calls from their Florida collection agency office.
Even though a Florida collection agency may hold a license to collect debt in Florida, there really is no oversight over the Florida collection agencies over what tactics they may employ or how effective they may be at collecting debt in Florida. More credit managers are recognizing that they no longer need to place their debt collection claims with Florida collection agencies. A Florida debt collection law firm offers the same services as a Florida collection agency. However, what is important to recognize is that Florida collection agencies do not hold a license to practice law.
Florida Debt Collection Agency
If a Florida collection agency want to suggest that a collection case needs to go to an attorney, the Florida collection agencies have to outsource the collection matter to a Florida collection attorney. The end result is the Florida collection agency has to charge you a higher contingent fee as the Florida collection agencies now have to act as a middle man and will charge a premium on top of what the Florida collection law firm charges.
Our Florida collection lawyers will be happy to discuss the difference between Florida collection agencies and Florida collection law firms. In some instances utilizing a Florida collection agency may be a good option. However, in most cases using a Florida debt collection law firm will prove to get better results as the debtor recognizes that using a Florida collection law firm over a Florida collection agency means that your company intends to use the Florida courts to help your company recover its money.
