Why Hire a Debt Collection Lawyer

Debt Collection Lawyers

Hiring an attorney directly in debt collection matters has certain advantages that should be considered before contacting a collection agency to handle the matter for you. First, unlike debt collection agencies, we can initiate legal proceedings or filings in court when a debtor is unwilling to begin payment on a debt. Secondly, from the perspective of you, the client, our office assumes the headache and stress associated with finding debtors, contacting them, and initiating collection actions. Third, you do not have to pay both the collection agency and its attorney to which it refers cases. Lastly, in many cases our debt collection attorneys work on a contingency fee basis: if we don’t recover debt for our clients, we don’t get paid in those situations.

Regardless of whether you’re a landlord, business, professional practice, municipality, credit union, bank, finance company or individual, the Law Offices of Caudle can help. To schedule a free consultation and learn how we can help you, contact debt collection attorneys Caudle Law Firm today.

Contact Debt Collection Attorneys

As debt collection attorneys, we can often expedite collection on a debt by leveraging certain allowances within the law involving wage garnishment, asset forfeitures, interrogatories, and property liens. Using interrogatories as a post-judgment collection tool we can force the judgment debtor to reveal assets and prevent them from encumbering and/or disposing of those assets. Failure of a debtor to respond to an interrogatory summons or obey orders issued in an interrogatory proceeding can result in the debtor being cited for contempt and being subjected to a fine or imprisonment or both. In a number of cases, issuing a demand letter [pre-judgment] or an interrogatory summons [post-judgment] is often sufficient to convince a debtor to begin the process of repaying a debt.
