We receive most of our new cases by mail, email or fax and we are pleased to begin your case quickly. The steps to have us start a collection action for you are as follows:
You may select one of the fee types we offer. Review of Contingent Fee or Hourly Fee to make a selection. If you decide to select one of the contingent fee (percentage) agreements, you will want to review the topic of About Costs so you will be comfortable with the court costs that must be spent to pursue your collection.After you have made a selection between Contingent Fee or Hourly Fee, you may retrieve the appropriate fee agreement from among these pages. We offer several types of collection alternatives.
If your case involves a collection which has not yet begun against a California resident debtor, and you select a percentage or contingent fee, please review our Contingent Fee Retainer Agreement Prejudgment. Alternatively you may wish to consider our Hourly Fee Retainer Agreement. Hourly fees are rarely appropriate on smaller cases as discussed in the topic of Contingent Fee or Hourly Fee.
