"Relentless Collection Attorneys"

Our philosophy is simple: We never give up. We pursue your debtor until either you get paid or no one else can get you paid. We treat your debt as our debt and tirelessly pursue debt recovery. We are the last name that your debtors want to hear.

When we first get a file in from a client, we look to see what the debtor is about, who it does business with, and what is posted on social media. From there we determine which collection tactic would be most effective in swiftly collecting our client’s bad debt. Unlike others who write demand letters and make calls, we figure that you have already done that and want an aggressive and relentless debt collection action. That is exactly what we provide: No calls. No letters. Just Action through litigation.

Absolutely. A mechanic’s lien, when done properly gives certain individuals in the construction industry the right to have a security interest in the property that they have helped to improve. The beauty of the mechanic’s lien is that if you are timely and have the right paperwork, you can perfect a lien on property owned by a person or entity with which you have no contractual relationship. It is one of the only liens left that you may record at the registry of deeds before obtaining a court’s permission. However, the requirements of the Massachusetts Mechanic’s Lien Statute, c, 254, require strict adherence to the documents required to be able to record and perfect a mechanic’s lien and the time in which the lien must be recorded. At the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC, Attorney Alan M. Cohen has nearly three decades working with mechanic’s liens.

Unfortunately, unlike most other states, a foreign judgment from a sister state court cannot be domesticated by registration. This means that we have to file a new suit in Massachusetts to perfect and enforce your judgment. The Law Offices of Alan M.

An ex parte attachment is an attachment sought and obtained from the court without notice to the defendant pursuant to certain Massachusetts Rules of Civil Procedure and Massachusetts General Laws. When the facts warrant, the courts may allow a creditor to attach a debtor’s property without notice where there is a sufficient likelihood that if the debtor were to receive notice of the attachment, the debtor would remove or encumber the asset. It is not common that a debtor will leave money in a bank account when given notice of a bank attachment. The Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC seeks, where appropriate, to attach ex parte the debtor’s bank account through “trustee process” (“bank attachments).
