Important Distinctions Between A Debt Collection Law Firm And A Collection Agency
Why use a debt collection law firm instead of a collection agency? Texas law places strict limitations on how debt collection agencies operate. Most debt collection agencies use idle threats and offer the debtor pennies-on-the-dollar discounts in order to encourage repayment. In order to make a profit, agencies typically operate on a contingency basis — keeping a percentage of the amount collected. While the collection agency will keep its entire contingency percentage, the creditor will only see a fraction of the amount due from the debtor.
Our lawyers have legal authority to pursue and seize assets, file lawsuits and recoup court costs and attorney fees for debt collection cases. Our fee structure differs from most collection agencies because we place great emphasis on due diligence. We take great strides to ensure that you receive the full amount you are entitled to under the law.
We assist our clients in all phases of debt collection, including:
Our legal team has more than 70 years of cumulative experience, much of it representing national and international clients who are involved in debt collections or judgment litigation with debtors anywhere in Texas.
