Florida Monies Owed Help
Russell Law and Patrick Russell, Esq. , a Florida Debt Collection Attorney are available to assist you with your Florida collection case. Monies may be owed to you because of a loan, for the sale of goods, or for the provision of services. When monies are owed to you and payment is refused, you should seek the services of a lawyer to protect your interests. Collection efforts should be undertaken as soon as possible because if you should fail to act in a timely manner, you may be forever barred from collecting what is owed to you by law. Additionally, it is a statistical fact that persons who start collection actions sooner have a higher chance of collecting what is owed to them. To assist in your collection case, you should gather together all written documents that support your claim including any contracts, letters or emails to or from the debtor, invoices, shipping receipts, payment history and/or any accounting records. Copies of all your documents should be made and provided to your lawyer.
Florida Monies Owed Benefits
There are many advantages to using a law firm to collect your debt rather than a collection agency. First, collection agencies are limited by law in what they can do. Collection agencies cannot provide you with legal advice nor can they file a lawsuit on your behalf. Normally, all collection agencies will do is to send several demand letters, make a telephone call, and if there is no response, they will close their file. Unlike a collection agency, Russell Law can and will file a lawsuit on your behalf if proper payment is not received. In our firm, your collection matter will be handled as an individual case and not on a volume basis like those at a collection agency. As part of our normal operating procedures, you will receive detailed updates and status reports on your case. We will provide you with assistance for the pursuit of all of your legal remedies, including recording liens, pursuing a levy on personal property or seeking garnishment of wages and bank accounts. When possible, Russell Law and a Florida debt collection lawyer will seek the recovery of all of your attorney's fees and costs from the debtor. Finally, our office can review your contract, transaction documentation, credit procedures, and billing methods to reduce your collection problems in the future.
