Which means that we definitely stand out from the crowd. The question is why do we stand out from the crowd?
Many of the marketing people from legal firms and debt collection agencies insert debt collection attorney search terms into their website. So that you will find them, just like you found us (more about us later). Most or many of them do not specialise in debt collection but realise there is money to be made. They have clever marketing people.
On google and this website you will find attorneys who are out there looking for your custom. They will tempt you with no win no fee offers.
Resolute collections will give you information to decide if you need an attorney or not. You might even be able to collect debts owed to you, using your own knowledge and determination. At the very least you have something invested in this debt.
Why Do You Need An Attorney?
This seems like an obvious question. “I need a debt collection attorney because I need a debt collected”. The assumption is that you are unable to collect the debt by yourself. The first thing an attorney is going to do is ask for his fee upfront.
You will be asked full details of the debt and all communication you have had with the debtor.
Now you are out of pocket a few hundred dollars and your valuable time yet nothing has happened.
The attorney will send out a demand letter, which you could and may have sent by yourself. However, an attorney’s letter will look more “legal”. But make no doubt this, it is a template and has been used 100’s of times before.
Specialized Debt Collection Attorney
Is the attorney specialised in this field or did they have a nice advert and website? If you are searching the web there are a few guidelines that might help you.
If you search using this phrase allintitle:Debt Collection Attorney (no full stop). It will reduce the number of options from 130,000,000 (yes one hundred and thirty million) to a manageable 4,000. Or make a standard google search with “near me” or “your city” added to the end of whatever term you have used. You can also use allinurl:debt collection attorney as a search term. Simply copy and paste either of these search terms highlighted in yellow into Google or Bing.
Is A Collection Attorney Essential
You can find almost any type of users’ guides on the internet. What cannot be found is the experience a debt collection attorney will provide you in court. If you are going to end up in court – get an attorney. Do you want a different approach? Then Resolute Collections could be your answer.
When you go to court, you are going to have to depend on the letter of the law and fact. There will be no escaping this and an attorney is the best way forward. Sometimes it is the best paid attorneys who get a successful verdict – sometimes.
Cost Of A Collection Attorney
Even the best priced collection attorney is going to set you back $125 per hour. For an experienced debt collection attorney, expect to pay $350 per hour or more. You will then have to estimate how long a defended case will take in working hours. We suggest you plan for a worst-case scenario.
If a case is undefended it might be because the debtor has no assets or dies not care. Needless to say, that neither of these is good for you.
Some debt collection agencies will offer a no win no fee. You might pay up to 40% or more in commission. Proper legal eagles will not offer this sort of deal. A proper attorney will value their time and experience. Consider your options.
If you are at all confident that your debtor has assets and will pay, opt for a set fee. On the other hand, if you are not confident find an no win no fee debt collection attorney. Resolute Collections are obviously a solution for a fixed fee.
Debt Settlement Negotiation
If you intend to settle your debt claim through negotiation, then we highly recommend that you engage a debt collection attorney. You are probably the worst person to negotiate a settlement if it is not a skill you use regularly. They have talents and skills which we mere mortals do not have.
Using an attorney will take all the emotion out of any negotiation. Remember to set your fee for their time. You might want to consider a set fee with performance commission.
Time needed: 15 minutes.
