MEETING OUR CLIENTS' NEEDS

Keeping our clients in the loop isn't just an ethical obligation as a law firm -- it's our standard and at the heart of our firm's values. We take pride in dedicating ourselves to outstanding customer service. We work diligently to serve you as not only legal professionals, but as a flexible extension of your own team, available on demand.

From our first handshake, we will work to develop a complete and comprehensive understanding of exactly how you do business and your collection needs. We don't want to waste your time with repetitive phone calls and e-mails trying to understand why and what your debtors owe you, so we train our staff to understand your contracts and accounts and create a positive working relationship with every client.

We'll provide prompt, substantive responses to your inquiries, and will prepare comprehensive reports on a regular basis (and on demand) to make sure you understand the status of your accounts. 

in the courtroom 

Litigation is the foundation of our practice. Our attorneys have nearly a century of trial experience and we believe courtroom fundamentals are the key to delivering successful results.

Our attorneys assess every file before the first demand letter goes in the mail. We evaluate your contract, confirm the proper parties, review your underlying communications, and verify your claim amount to make sure no money is left on the table. 

Some lawyers like to take the easy way out, settling for pennies on your dollars. There are times when a settlement is in your best interest, but we will hold the hard line and will forcefully pursue your claims in court when necessary. After we take a judgment in your favor, we have experience with every facet of the collection remedies permitted by the court rules and we're not afraid to roll up our sleeves to relentlessly collect the money you are owed.

Over the years, one of our proudest accomplishments has been to earn the trust of, and partner with, some of the country's foremost white-shoe law firms -- top lawyers who understand that when it comes time to get their clients paid, there's no other team willing to aggressively pursue comparable results. 

OUR COLLECTION PHILOSOPHY

We partner the power of a law firm with the internal resources of a collection agency and the kind of location and asset information you'd expect from a private investigation firm -- all under one roof. With this combination, we work to ensure top dollars net to you at every stage -- from initial demand to post-judgment collection efforts.

We do whatever we can to resolve every account before filing suit with a healthy mix of diplomacy, assertiveness, and persistence to help motivate your debtors to pay the money you've earned and are owed, but that doesn't just mean we're eager to settle. 

When litigation is necessary, we rely on our courtroom experience and make it a priority to monitor and review the latest laws, regulations, and court decisions affecting our industry and yours.

We stay up to date on ever-changing state and federal collection laws; the local court system and their rules; and we cultivate relationships with judges, clerks, local counsel, and court officers to ensure our clients have a competitive advantage for favorable results.
