Utilizing A Broad Range Of Collections Methods
Occasionally, you might run into a person who simply refuses to pay for work or services you have provided, or refund your money when you rightfully deserve it. In a tight economy, this type of behavior only gets worse. Thankfully, our attorneys can help you overcome these obstacles by recovering the money that is rightfully owed to you.
If our stern initial demand letter is left ignored, we will follow up with more aggressive collections methods. This may include court action to wage garnishings, obtaining personal property liens, or seeking an order for the sheriff to seize personal items and hold them at a public auction for your benefit. In fact, once a judgment is obtained from the court, we may help you pursue incarceration for the person who has failed to pay you what you are owed.
