Collecting commercial or retail debts is rarely as easy as making a phone call or sending a strongly worded letter. Debtors can be extremely creative and persistent in their efforts to avoid their obligations, often concealing assets, avoiding service and throwing up roadblock after roadblock. That is why lenders and small business owners who need assistance in collecting outstanding debts should have a lawyer who is equally relentless and innovative on their side.
At Marc Brown, P.A., our attorneys have extensive experience representing creditors in every type of collection matter and have a track record of success in realizing recoveries on delinquent accounts of all sizes.
Maximizing Efficiency and Effectiveness in Debt Collection
Whether you have one delinquent customer or a large portfolio of outstanding receivables, we take a strategic and cost-effective approach to collections. We understand that every day that goes by and every dollar that goes to attorneys’ fees hits your bottom line. That is why we maximize efficiencies in our efforts, whether in negotiations with debtors or in litigation.
We also know that commercial collections can be fraught with risks beyond just writing off bad debts. Efforts that run afoul of strict federal and state laws involving debt collection can expose creditors to additional and significant liability. We have a full understanding of all applicable debt collection and consumer protection laws and conduct ourselves accordingly without dampening the effectiveness of our collections work.
