You've come to the right place. If you are a creditor (e.g., a small business or professional service provider) who is seeking payment of debts owed to you by individuals or other commercial entities, a collections lawyer can help.
Use FindLaw to hire a local collections lawyer when other debt collection methods have failed to help recover and satisfy outstanding debts, enforce rights under liens, and recover real or personal property (repossession) of insolvent debtors.
How do I choose a lawyer?
Consider the following:
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
