An overview of the collections process

  • Receipt and review of your files.
  • Demand letter — Our attorneys send a letter to your debtor demanding payment.  If the debtor responds to the letter, we work with you to see if you want to discount the debt and to set up a payment schedule.
  • Lawsuit — If the debtor does not respond, we seek your permission to file a lawsuit. Once suit is filed, our attorneys move quickly to obtain a judgment in your favor before trial. Although rare, if trial becomes necessary, our attorneys vigorously defend your right to collect payment.
  • Judgment — A judgment gives our attorneys the opportunity to get the debtor’s attention. We attach liens on the debtor’s real estate and move to file wage garnishments to secure payment on the debt. These garnishments take money from the debtor’s bank account, paychecks and any other sources of income. If we cannot locate a debtor’s place of employment, we can force the debtor to appear in court for a post-judgment deposition to testify about the finances.
  • Jail — if the debtor fails to appear at the deposition, our attorneys can have the debtor jailed for contempt of court. We usually reach out to the debtor before this becomes necessary, but if the person continues to refuse to pay what he owes, we have no problem with sending him or her to jail.
