No Calls. No Letters. Just Relentless Ethical Judgment Collection by an Experienced Debt Recovery Attorney Alan M. Cohen

Few things are as frustrating as dealing with a client that just won’t pay even after you’ve made multiple attempts at convincing them. The truth is, many business owners are not good at collecting overdue invoices. That’s because they are focused primarily on sales because without sales, you don’t have a business. But without collection you just have bad debt.

Sure, they make collection calls, but be honest, those calls are made haphazardly at best, at worst, the phone call for your money turns into a half hour sob story, of how the debtor’s dog died because they didn’t have any money for the veterinarian, or some other mumbo-jumbo. The result, your business suffers because of the cash flow that’s been cut off.

Business owners who find themselves in this situation need to realize, that 9 out of 10 times, when calling the person who owes the business money, they are going to come up with some excuse for not paying, or better still, come up with an excuse for not having to pay the business at all.  After you’ve waited weeks on end for the customer to pay their overdue invoices, it is clear that they do not have any intentions of paying you.

Seek Professional Help

This is where business owners need to turn to the professionals of debt collection. Obviously, we’re talking about an experienced debt collection attorney here. Having experienced debt collection attorneys such as the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC by your side can significantly increase your chances of getting a judgment payment.

Instead of going with a debt collection agency, which does not have the legal authority to get you back your money, hiring an experienced attorney who is knowledgeable in bad debt recovery and debt collection in Massachusetts, and will immediately sue your debtor to work to get you paid will be your best chance of getting paid for overdue invoices. We l get straight to the action and immediately file a lawsuit on your behalf against your debtor.

We will also take the necessary legal action to seek to attach the debtor’s bank account and post-judgment, we can seek to garnish their wages. A collections agency cannot do any of this. So, hiring an experienced debt collection attorney will increase your chances of getting paid.

Aggressive Post Judgement Debt Collection

As experienced debt collection attorneys, the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC is well aware of the rules and regulations of debt collection in the State of Massachusetts. After we have obtained a default judgment order against the debtor, we evaluate how to proceed to best get you paid. Sometimes our attorneys may determine the best-case scenario is filing a motion to garnish their wages. Sometimes, we just send the sheriff or duly authorized constable to seize their assets or shut down the debtor’s business (at least temporarily) to try to get you paid. Sometimes we look again to see if there are new companies that may owe the debtor monies that we can reach and apply. Sometimes we take post-judgment depositions of the debtor’s bank accounts and just follow the money trail. Sometimes we force the debtor to testify under oath on their employment status, bank accounts, property, or any other asset that they might be hiding.  And sometimes we choose to do all of the above and then more.

We will not rest until we either get you paid or none could get you paid.

It’s important here to note that all of the strategies for debt collection that are used by the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC are ethical and follow the rules and regulations of Massachusetts collections law. We work hard to do everything legally in our power to get you paid.  We are relentless.

Once the assets of the deadbeat have been discovered, we can move towards post-judgment attachments and can also pursue supplementary process or wage attachments as well. In short, we do everything in our power to get you paid. This includes document depositions of bank accounts and credit cards. Whenever our post-judgment discovery gives us a clue of the debtor’s assets, we zero in on those assets so that it can be used to pay off your debt.
