Collecting Consumer And Commercial Debt

When individuals and businesses won't pay your bill a creditor faces a choice. You can try to collect the bill yourself or hire a collection agency. However, sometimes you need the power of the law behind you.

If you run a business and you want to get your money quickly, a better choice would be to hire an experienced lawyer who has the skills to use the power of the courts to get the job done. Even better, you need a lawyer who has the wisdom to know how to analyze your situation to optimize your recovery.

Experienced Collections Lawyers

Attorney Lori J. Frank at the law office of L.J. Frank, P.C., has more than 25 years of experience collecting debt on behalf of businesses all over the country.

We represent creditors in cases involving a wide variety of issues, including:

  • Commercial collections
  • Mediation
  • Lifts of Stay
  • Student loans
  • Equipment Leasing
  • Factory Supply Contracts
  • Domestications of Foreign Judgments

Solutions Tailored To Each Case

No two cases are exactly alike. The strategies we use depend upon the exact circumstances of each case. We analyze the issues involved and find the solutions that will work best.

In Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases, we work to lift court-ordered stays on collections so creditors can get their money back. In Chapter 13 cases, we object to repayment plans that are unfair to our clients and work to find a better way.

When possible, we reach out to the debtor to work out a solution. When that approach won't work, we file suit.

We settle most of our cases out of court, but we are fully prepared to go to trial when necessary to help our clients recover their money.

Post-Judgment Actions

It always feels satisfying to receive a judgment in favor of our clients. Unfortunately, a judgment doesn't deliver any money by itself.

Sometimes, our work is far from over even after we have secured a judgment. Whether the debtors are individuals or businesses, we work to find concrete solutions to recover their loans, using methods such as wage garnishment or garnishment of bank accounts and tax refunds.
