Options for Settling Outstanding Consumer Debt

When a consumer does not respond to collection attempts, a creditor can either write off debt or pursue their rights in court. Writing off too much bad debt becomes reputational and can disincentivize payment on receivables generally. Write-offs also may have significant negative effects on the entire economy, such as rising healthcare costs, reduced consumer spending, and reduced access to credit for those who need it most. Legal collections can help establish the right incentives. We skillfully help creditors navigate legal collections with the right combination of poise and action. We engage in:

  • Pre-litigation communication attempts
  • Litigation & discovery
  • Trials
  • Pre-judgment and post-judgment settlements or payment plans
  • Garnishments
  • Levies
  • Judgment liens
  • Hospital liens
  • Bankruptcy claims
  • Probate claims
