Debt Collection Defined
Debt collection is simply the attempt to collect the debt of another. The typical scenario is that a customer owes you money for either goods or services rendered. When your attempts to resolve this claim with your customer fail, you should seek the counsel of a Florida Debt Collection Lawyer to help you. The sooner you get the file into the hands of the lawyer the better your chances are for recovering the debt. Statistically it has been shown that the successful recovery of a debt decreases for each day that passes.
Debt collection matters also involve the receipt and prosecution of Florida worthless checks. The passing of a worthless check in Florida entitles the victim to pursue a claim for three-times the value of the check as damages in addition to the face amount of the check. There are specific procedures that must be followed to pursue a worthless check claim and a client is well advised to obtain a lawyer for assistance with these matters.
The collection of final judgments is perhaps the toughest of all collection matters. With Florida judgment enforcement, clients will often find that obtaining a final judgment in a case is often easier than collecting the amount owed on the judgment. There are specific strategies that should be taken to ensure optimal recovery of amounts owed on judgments. A strong and successful strategy will incorporate several activities including post judgement discovery, aggressive investigation of assets and income, garnishment and levy.
Finally, collection defense is also a vibrant area of collection law. Clients will need counsel and assistance in those instances when they are being pursued for a debt that they do not owe. In Florida collection defense cases, a collection lawyer should be retained as early as possible to challenge collection agencies and their aggressive methods. Debt verification and the strategic planning of a sound defense early on can be invaluable in defending your case.
