A commercial collection attorney you can trust can be invaluable to your business. After all, when a customer promises to make regular payments but, instead, makes only occasional payments, some creditors can be left with a “deer in the headlights stare” and wondering if debt recovery is truly on the way.
On the one hand, you want to retain the customer and collect as much money as possible without the cost of an attorney. However, allowing the debtor to control the conversation can give the customer sole discretion as to when and how much he or she will pay, perhaps even later seeking a discount of the principal and a waiver of the interest.
Typically, a receivable more than 60-90 days requires serious action. If the customer refuses to enter into a written agreement admitting the amount due and fails to regularly make substantial weekly or monthly payments which they can afford and you do nothing, you have lost control of your money.

How Do I Collect Past-Due Debts in Massachusetts?
There are many legal steps you can take to collect old and new past due receivables for goods and services that you supplied and/or rendered. B2B and B2C collection agencies and even other lawyers simply send a threatening letter once a month or make a few phone calls. We take a more aggressive approach:
Investigate the Debtor’s Situation
Our first step is to investigate the debtor’s situation. What assets does the debtor have? Do they or the personal guarantor(s) own real estate? Business interest? Litigation?
Prepare Pre-judgment Motions
We prepare prejudgment motions seeking prejudgment security. Commercial debt collections Lawyer Alan M. Cohen personally reviews each pleading. Mr. Cohen or his associate will appear before the judge on your behalf. We will put our courtroom skills to work for you seeking ex parte attachments, as well as attachments with notice so that you can obtain prejudgment security, which will allow you to get paid when you prevail.
Request Prejudgment Security
When we draft your complaint, affidavit, and ex parte motion, our collections attorneys work to persuade the court to grant you pre-judgment security. We aggressively fight for the right to seize and freeze your debtor’s bank accounts, real estate, and other assets to secure the payments that are owed to you.
Serve the Attachment & Notify Your Debtor
After we obtain the allowed attachments, we have the sheriff serve the bank attachments and record real estate attachments to give you security to obtain the payment of your bad debt.. When successful, the first time your debtor will find out about us will be after we have attached its assets.
Our relentless collections attorneys work on your behalf to persuade the debtor to pay through our aggressive, effective, and ethical negotiation tactics. When necessary, we use non-binding mediation. If that fails, we will try your case before a judge or jury.
