An overview of the collections process
1. Receipt — We review your files.
2. Demand letter — We 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.
3. Lawsuit — If the debtor does not respond, we seek your permission to file a lawsuit. Once the suit is filed, we move quickly to obtain a judgment in your favor before trial. Although rare, if trial becomes necessary, our firm vigorously defends your right to collect payment.
4. Judgment — A judgment gives you 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 and testify about the finances.
5. Jail — If the debtor fails to appear at the deposition, our firm can have the debtor jailed for contempt of court. We usually reach out to the debtor before this becomes necessary, but if people continue to refuse to pay what they owe, we have no problem with sending them to jail.
