Dothan-Based Collection Attorneys
Our law firm specializes in the collection of delinquent accounts on a national level with our attorneys being licensed in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. We handle the majority of our collection placements on a contingency basis which means that there is no fee owed unless we are able to collect. To place accounts with our office please download our placement form. Our goal is to assist our clients with the management of their accounts receivable. Many of our clients engage our services prior to a delinquency status. Once an account is placed with our Collections Division we begin collection efforts immediately. This includes sending demand letters, attempting verbal communication directly with the debtor and possibly filing litigation. It is important to us that our clients have confidence that any account placed with us is being handled quickly and efficiently. Our clients are provided with a unique CLIENT LOGIN through our website where they can view the progress being made on any account placed for collection at any time. Should litigation become necessary, we will discuss the litigation process with our client and the cost that may arise from such action. Because we recognize the importance of being good stewards of our clients’ money, we only recommend filing suit in situations where we believe that recovery is highly likely. Our firm is proud to have a Collections Division comprised of experienced and professional collectors to assist clients. Lauren Donaldson has over 20 years of experience in the collection industry.
If a consumer has the ability to pay, our collection professionals provide the debtor with every opportunity to resolve an account in a timely manner, whether by paying in full or through other payment arrangements. We provide a variety of payment options for consumers through our office and even have a “Consumer Login” which allows consumers to make secure payments over the internet via a credit card. Inevitably, some consumers simply ignore our collection efforts despite having available income or assets to pay their debts owed. In those circumstances, we recommend proceeding with litigation and judgment remedies to collect the debt.
Our staff is always respectful and courteous to a consumer while at the same time taking a firm stance toward payment of the debt owed. We recognize that our actions are a reflection of our clients that we represent and, as such, we work hard to maintain a good relationship with our clients’ customers. Our core belief in diplomacy, respect, and tact creates our exceptional results while maintaining the best public image for our clients.
In today’s difficult financial times, we understand the importance of a strong collection and litigation partner necessary to address the unique nature of commercial debts owed. That is why we have established a Collections Division staffed with experienced attorneys and support staff who have the knowledge and ability to provide you the collection effort necessary to resolve your accounts receivable issues. We understand the impact that delinquent receivables can have on a business and the urgency needed to resolve the accounts as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our recovery approach is designed to help you reduce delinquency, increase recovery, improve cash flow and minimize losses, all at a fair cost with optimized net-back to your bottom line. Many businesses do not involve a collection firm until the account is delinquent.
