How Aggressive Collections Attorneys Can Aid in Massachusetts Debt Recovery

Have you lost all hope of recovering a long-overdue debt? You’ve tried everything in your power, but the debtor doesn’t respond or keeps making excuses to buy more time. You’ve already tried hiring an agency, but they say there is nothing more that they can do. You might be preparing to write off these dues as bad debts — but there is still light at the end of the tunnel. The experienced collection attorneys at the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC will work relentlessly to make sure you recover your bad debt.

Collection agencies are passive organizations that make the same effort you were making before you brought them on board. They send letters and demand calls, which are usually worth nothing but a waste of your time and resources. At the end of the day, a collection agency will collect only low-hanging fruit and tell you that there is nothing more that they can do to help you. A debtor who is unwilling to pay has to be pursued much more aggressively, and our diligent debt collection attorneys have the skills and knowledge to make this happen.

Why Hire a Collections Attorney?

There are several reasons why a business should hire an experienced collections lawyer who focuses on debt collection. An experienced collections attorney will do more than merely advise you on what you need to do. Instead, they will help you collect on the debt by filing a lawsuit against the debtor, seeking and obtaining attachments on the debtor’s assets, and even garnishing their wages post-judgment so that you can get paid for your judgment debt.

As a creditor, hiring an attorney who has decades of experience in judgment collections can put a plan in place that will increase your chances of receiving a judgment payment from the debtor. The Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC focuses on debt collection in Massachusetts. As experienced collections attorneys, rather than providing a multitude of services to our clients in many different areas of law, we prefer to focus on debt collection and construction litigation with an expanded coverage area, which has resulted in our incredible success in Massachusetts debt collection.

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, but 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 collection methods to secure the debtor’s assets while the lawsuit is pending and before the judgment is entered.

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 offered by the laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to prevent the defendant or debtor from taking any action that can reduce their ability to pay off debts to you.

These security tools prevent the debtor from selling, transferring, or moving their assets. Pre-judgment attachments can be applied to real estate and bank accounts through motions such as ex parte attachments on trustee process, real estate and personal property. We also use methods such as reach and apply injunctions to help collect your bad debt.

Massachusetts Mechanic’s Lien Statute Requires Strict Compliance with Rigid Requirements

Likewise, if you are operating in the construction industry as a supplier, subcontractor, sub-subcontractor or general contractor and the owner, general contractor or subcontractor fails to pay the debt they owe to you for the services rendered and/or goods provided, we can help. Our experienced and knowledgeable mechanic’s lien attorneys can provide you with complete information about your debt collection rights and prepare all of the necessary documents to create, perfect and enforce your mechanic’s lien on private (as opposed to public) property in Massachusetts.

Massachusetts mechanic’s lien laws protect suppliers as well as contractors seeking debt payments. These laws, when timely and properly used, help protect contractors and suppliers against the non-payment risk. 

A mechanic’s lien is collateral. It can protect contractors and suppliers from losses when it is timely and properly filed, perfected, and enforced. However, to take full advantage of this right, one must make sure that it is filed correctly and in conformance with the law. For this, it is vital to go to an experienced mechanic’s lien attorney like Alan M. Cohen.

There’s No Time to Waste When Collecting Delinquent Debts

Smart business owners who find themselves in the uncomfortable situation of having to collect outstanding payments from deadbeat customers turn to the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC in Massachusetts, and for good reason. While you can rest assured that we are going to be aggressive in our approach to getting back your payments — meaning no useless and time-wasting phone calls, emails and letters — it is also vital for business owners who are staring at a backlog of unpaid invoices not to waste any time when it comes to the collection of their delinquent debts. 

There are many options a debt collection attorney can turn to in Massachusetts, such as seeking pre-judgment security against your debtor. For a business owner looking to get paid, keep in mind the importance of time and its impact on your chances of collecting a debt. In normal circumstances, the older a delinquent commercial account gets, the more difficult it is for the business owner to get a payment.
