Why it is Important to have an Aggressive Business Collection Attorney
An aggressive approach is key to getting the most money from your customers who are on your collections list.
Often, a company that fails to pay your invoices will be in debt to several others as well. There could be several claims on your customer’s limited funds, and their business will be inundated with payment demands. Under such pressure, your custmer will pay the account that is most likely to cause them the most legal problems.
As the saying goes, “the squeaky wheel gets the grease.” An aggressive business collection attorney will communicate to the customer that owes you money right away your intention to move quickly on collections. An aggressive business collection attorney will send a personalized demand letter that cannot be overlooked and thrown onto a pile of generic form letters from other collectors. The delinquent account holder will know right away that you are serious about getting paid.
If a judgment is necessary, an aggressive attorney will move forward quickly garnishing the debtor’s bank accounts and making the appropriate filings for the sheriff to seize vehicles or real estate. Again, speed is important. You want to be the first creditor to lien and seize the company’s assets.
Even the most aggressive attorney will have a difficult time collecting if the debt is aged. To give your attorney the best chance at success, you should forward delinquent accounts to him/her as soon as it is apparent that the customer is unable or unwilling to pay.
Occasionally customers without financial problems will refuse to pay due to a dispute over performance, product quality or some other matter. In this instance too, an aggressive, speedy approach will get the matter resolved while the facts are still fresh and any needed evidence is still available.
Creating a relationship with a collection attorney is the best way to ensure consistent and speedy recovery. As a business partner, your lawyer can address delinquent accounts while they are still fresh and collectible or handle disputes over product or performance issues before they escalate. Having an attorney just a phone call away when you have a matter that needs immediate attention, will get you better and faster results.
