An overview of the collections process

  1. Receipt and review of your files
  2. Demand letter — The firm’s attorneys send a letter to your debtor demanding payment. If the debtor responds to the letter, the firm works 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, the firm’s attorneys seek your permission to file a lawsuit. Once the suit is filed, they move quickly to obtain a judgment in your favor before trial. Although rare, if trial becomes necessary, they vigorously defend your right to collect payment.
  4. Judgment — A judgment gives the firm’s attorneys the opportunity to get the debtor’s attention. They 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 they cannot locate a debtor’s place of employment, they can force the debtor to appear in court for a post-judgment deposition to testify about the individual’s finances.
  5. Jail — If the debtor fails to appear at the deposition, the firm’s attorneys can have the debtor jailed for contempt of court. They usually reach out to the debtor before this becomes necessary, but if people continue to refuse to pay what they owe, the firm’s attorneys have no problem with sending them to jail.
