Our primary goal is always to help you. If you’re a small business owner, it is extremely frustrating when you’ve invoiced a customer and sent past due notices only to be completely ignored or told continuously that the payments are coming when they’re not. On the other hand illness or the loss of key customers can leave a business unable to pay its bills.
Atlanta Debt Collection Lawyer
Whether you are a claimant or a struggling debtor, I will meet with you to go over your unpaid bills, and determine the best strategy for you. I can also review any promissory notes or invoices upon which collection efforts will be based. Often times, the first step in collecting is to send out a demand letter to the debtor. There are federal laws which govern how debt collectors may proceed. By hiring me, you don’t need to worry about whether or not you are acting promptly. I will give the debtor a set time period upon by which to respond, and if they do not respond I will continue with collection efforts in a way approved by you. If we are not able to settle the matter informally through correspondence, we will discuss whether it is in your best interest to file a lawsuit against the debtor. The decision to file a lawsuit will be ultimately up to you, but I will give you all the pros and cons of litigation so that you can make a reasoned decision that works best for you and your company.
As a debtor, it is usually possible to work out payment plans and avoid litigation. Debtors who are proactive and work with their creditors may be able to manage their debt without litigation or bankruptcy. If bankruptcy is necessary, we have attorneys who can help you file.
