Through our two decades of experience, we have streamlined the collections process to recover our clients’ funds as expeditiously as possible. Collections cases are straightforward when they involve what’s known in the legal world as a “sum certain” amount due. This means you have documentation, like an invoice or account statement, establishing a definite amount due for goods you sold and delivered, or services you performed. This is a common scenario for many of the types of clients we work with, such as:
- Accountants, consultants, healthcare providers, and other professionals
- Builders, plumbers, HVAC, carpenters, electricians, and other skilled trade contractors Marketers, graphic designers, and other creative professionals
- Telecommunications service providers and media companies
- Event planners
- Investors, developers, and property owners
- Vendors and merchants
- Manufacturers and wholesalers (both domestic and foreign)
- And many more
Some clients ask us to make initial contact with their debtor via a good faith demand letter, which we are happy to do. However, most debtors we deal with tend to ignore letters and only respond to strength. That’s why we recommend filing a lawsuit expeditiously to get your debtor’s attention.
If the defendant answers our complaint and asserts counter claims and affirmative defenses, the matter shifts form a standard collections case to a Commercial Litigation matter, and we will proceed to litigate the case to its final disposition. If the defendant does not answer our complaint, which is often the case in “sum certain” collections matter, we have a streamlined process for obtaining a default judgment, which we can then work with a sheriff or marshal to enforce on your behalf. For more information on that, check out our Post-Judgment Enforcement practice.
