When you a small business owner you rely on the payments from your customers to pay your bills and stay in business. So what happens when your final notices just aren’t working? How do you get the money you are owed? The Attorneys at Robinson, Seiler & Anderson in Provo can help you get the money you deserve with a collections attorney. Listed below are some ways a collection attorney can help you in your situation.

 

How to Collect Business Debts

If you’ve completed the work or delivered the product, sent the invoice, and have received no response, you still have some options. Use a measured approach to collect on the account. Start by sending a debt collection letter, reminding the customer or account-holder of their missed payments and providing an opportunity to correct the situation. You can send an initial letter, a follow-up letter, and a final demand letter before escalating further. If you still don’t have a response from your customer you can begin the legal processes of collecting debt.

 

How a Collections Attorney can Help

A collections lawyer can help you in a number of ways. First, you can receive personalized help with your situation. A lawyer will be able to explain the proper procedures and help you draft a well-crafted debt collection demand letter or offer other solutions to your issue. A lawyer may also be able to advise you on whether to use a collection agency or seek a court-based remedy to ultimately collect on the debt, by filing a lawsuit and hopefully receiving a judgment in your favor. A collections lawyer can also guide you through the process of collecting on your judgment.

 

If you find yourself in a situation where you are unsure whether you can collect the debts you are owed on your own or if you need a collections attorney, schedule a consultation with the Attorneys at Robinson, Seiler & Anderson in Provo. We can advise you on the steps you need to take in order to get the money you are owed.
