Frequently Asked Questions

Collections

Q. What advantage is there for my business to use an attorney to collect debts?
 
A. Very often, our clients have sent request after request regarding unpaid invoices to their customers with no results. However, when these same customers see an attorney's letterhead, they realize that the business is not going to back off; and in fact, is serious enough to hire an attorney which could ultimately result in court costs to the delinquent customer in addition to the unpaid bill. Therefore, our clients achieve results without the necessity of going to court in most cases. Those instances when it is necessary, we have the knowledge to see that the correct steps are followed along the way to achieve the desired result in court.
