  • Don’t Write off Your Bad Debts Send them to an Aggressive Collections Attorney and not a Passive Collection Agency

When you just can’t seem to get the debtor to pay you, you are left with three choices. These are:

  1. Waive your debt and bear the loss, or
  2. Work with a debt collection agency for collecting your unpaid debt and waste your time, or
  3. Hire a collections attorney to take legal action against the debtor to aggressively seek debt recovery.

Operating in the industry for over three decades, we would advise you to come to us instead of writing off your bad debts or going to collection agency. We have the experience, skills, knowledge and above all passion to pursue your case aggressively to turn bad debts into debt recovery and money in your pocket.

Hiring a passive debt collection agency for debt recovery will do you no good. In fact, it will waste your time. You may find yourself at square one even after months of working with a debt collection agency.  We say this because a debt collection agency is not able to take aggressive legal actions. Indeed, a collection agency cannot take any legal actions in court. All it can do is employ perhaps the same or similar techniques that you have already used when following up with the debtor like sending demand letters and make phone calls to retrieve delinquent accounts.

However, when you hire us, we assure you that our attorney will pursue your claim aggressively working to put the right and best the legal actions in place to recover your money from delinquent debtors. Our attorney will go directly to court to attempt to collect bad debt; which collection agencies cannot. At the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC our philosophy is simple– “GET YOU PAID”. Click for more….

  • Unlike Others We Aggressively Seek Pre-Judgment Attachments to Secure Debt Recovery

Usually attorneys wait for the court to enter the judgment before they take legal actions against the debtor.

We don’t!

At the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC, we work proactively and aggressively by taking measures such as using pre-judgment security tools to secure the debtor’s assets while the lawsuit is pending and before the judgment is passed.

We use pre-judgment attachments with or without notification to help you secure debt recovery. As the name suggests, these pre-judgment security tools are made available by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that prevent the defendant or debtor from taking any action that can reduce their ability to pay off debts to the creditor.

In other words, these security tools prevent the debtor from selling, transferring or moving their assets. Pre-judgment attachments can be and are sought, where appropriate, on real estate and bank accounts and personal property. Click to learn more about pre-judgment security attachments.

  • A Judgment without a Plan for Collection will not lead to Debt Recovery

Many creditors often don’t know that winning a judgment in the court doesn’t necessarily mean that it will lead to debt recovery. Well, it does state who won the judgment and who is required to pay but unfortunately, debtors may not take judgments seriously. In fact, many of them would just treat it like a piece of paper and discard it. This is exactly why you need a proper plan of action to enforce the judgment properly and recover monies. And this is what our attorneys do best.

Our experienced debt recovery lawyer will first review your case thoroughly and research about your debtor’s assets. Based on our evaluation and findings, and leveraging on our experience we will then select the best legal tools and strategies to implement a plan of action that help recover your unpaid bills.

  • We Domesticate Foreign Judgments in Massachusetts

At times creditors operating outside Massachusetts find it extremely difficult to recover debts from debtors who reside and operate in the State of Massachusetts. This is pretty much because of the fact that judgments won in other states or internationally cannot be directly enforced in Massachusetts.
