We effectively service clients who have cases between $10,000 and $2,000,000. We are a quality law firm, not a collection agency or a mill operation. We Sue! We don’t send whiny letters and don’t usually even contact the debtors before we start the lawsuit unless required by law. We don’t make repetitive phone calls and have no phone collectors.
We offer a choice between contingent fees (a percentage) or hourly fees (charged by the hour). See our FAQ page on which is right for you and how to make the choice. We recover more money, more often than other attorneys or collectors. If you are a contingent fee client and we don’t recover, there is no fee. The out-of-pocket filing fees for the court enforcement documents, motions, hearings, and liens and the fee for the process servers are generally small.
