Do You Need a Debt Collection Lawyer?
Collecting debts is never easy. However, when a debtor avoids collection correspondence or phone calls and refuses to (or cannot) repay the debt, this only makes the situation worse for all parties involved.
A debt collection attorney can represent your business, devising the right strategies to reclaim money or property loaned to the debtor. Credit collectors can make the calls and send out letters, but in many cases, their debt collection practices provide very limited results beyond this.
Something about a strongly worded letter on legal stationery, in addition to the potential threat of legal action from a debt collection attorney like those working for our firm, seems to motivate debtors into action.
Consumer protection laws help to shield debtors from harassment and unscrupulous behavior from creditors. Nonetheless, this doesn’t mean that your business has no recourse. While our lawyers work towards peaceful and negotiatory resolutions, litigation is always a possibility to settle past due accounts.
Collection Business Debts
No one wants to take things directly to the courtroom. A lawsuit is often a time-consuming, arduous, and expensive procedure that may not be worth it in the end. We always recommend that businesses do what they can to collect from customers before immediately engaging in a lawsuit.
Measured approaches in collecting on accounts typically yield the best results. Start simple with debt collection letters. These simple reminders keep in touch with debtors and ensure they remain aware of missed payment with an opportunity to correct the situation. Most businesses will send up to three letters before escalating the situation further.
What About a Collection Agency?
Whether or not your company chooses to enlist a collection agency ultimately depends on your unique, individual situation. Debt collection in no way applies a one-size-fits-all solution. Nevertheless, ensure your chosen agency is licensed, bonded, and operates in compliance with the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act).
It is always important to remember from either side in a debt-collection situation that consumer protections remain in place to limit and stop debt collection agencies from applying any harassing, abusing, or other questionable tactics towards debtors.
