Why Hire A Collections Attorney Over A Debt Collection Agency?
There are many collections agencies that offer services to those seeking to recover money owed. While these agencies are capable of working within the law as they try and collect on your behalf, they are limited in some capacities. A collections agency will not be able to represent you in court. They can request payment, but you would either have to hire a lawyer if they are unsuccessful, or they will hire a lawyer for you and pass the expense on to you. When you are working with a lawyer to collect a debt, you have counsel who will understand the legal requirements and ramifications of the entire process starting at the beginning. A debt collection lawyer can handle every step needed to recover your funds, from formally requesting payment to filing and winning a lawsuit if necessary.

Our Collections Process Protects Your Interests
Federal and Indiana debt collections laws can be very harsh against a creditor who is employing practices that are considered to be abusive. For this reason, it’s best to have an experienced collections lawyer who understands effective practices that don’t end up costing you more in the long run. Additionally, our experience in these legal procedures allows for us to give you a reasonable expectation of the time and difficulty that you may face in our efforts to collect for you. After receiving and reviewing your documents, we will establish a thorough plan to recover your debt in a manner that is best for you and your business. The general process includes:
A Demand Letter
A GDS Law Group, LLP lawyer will send a letter asking that the debtor pay what is owed. If they respond, we will try to set up a payment schedule out of court that works for all parties.
Filing A Lawsuit
If the demand letter is unsuccessful, a lawsuit can be formally filed in Madison County court. The court will attempt to locate and formally serve the debtor with the official complaint, and hopefully, this convinces them to work with us and quickly resolve the issue.
Obtaining Judgment At Trial
If the other side cannot legally dispute the facts we argue, an agreed judgment will be entered. If there is a dispute, we will be prepared to enter litigation and obtain a favorable resolution to the proceeding.
After judgment is granted, we will be able to secure payment of the debt by attaching liens on the debtor’s real estate and filing for wage garnishments, if necessary.
