Hold Debtors Accountable with the Help of a Lawyer
When you provide a service or product to a client, you expect and deserve to be paid in full. When the other party fails to pay for monies owed, you and your business suffer as a result. Because attempts to collect on your own can be ineffective, hiring a commercial collections lawyer to act in your best interests can help you get the results you want. Attorney David M. Newman has been practicing law for over 20 years and provides aggressive legal representation for business owners.
Mr. Newman is committed to communicating with you through each step of your case, so you can feel informed, empowered, and ultimately, fully compensated.
In addition to offering free consultations, Mr. Newman works on a contingency basis for many commercial collections cases. This means you do not have to worry about paying for legal services until you are compensated. To schedule a case review, message us online or call us at (425) 748-5200.
Do You Need a Commercial Collections Lawyer?
Mr. Newman can help small businesses, lenders, and individuals who:
- Have not been paid for a service or product
- Have debtors whose accounts are past due
- Have debtors that are threatening to file for bankruptcy
During a consultation, we can listen to the details of your situation and honestly recommend whether legal representation is right for you.
Hiring a Lawyer vs. Collecting Debt On Your Own
Hiring a lawyer is simply the most effective way to get the compensation you are owed. Depending on your unique case, we may recover on your behalf through:
- Judgment enforcement: While a court can provide documentation that supports your claim, a lawyer can come up with creative strategies that facilitate payment.
- Wage garnishment: With wage garnishment, the court can order money to be deducted from the debtor's paychecks until the debt is paid off.
- Bank-account garnishment: Bank account garnishment allows us to remove the contents of a bank account to pay off unpaid debt. A lawyer can assist in the process of finding the corresponding account. Some funds, such as federal benefits, Social Security benefits, and child support, cannot be garnished.
- Asset seizure: Also known as asset forfeiture, this is a confiscation of assets to collect a debt.
- Supplemental proceedings: During supplemental proceedings, you and your lawyer will attend a hearing during which the debtor will be asked about their current financial situation.
- Negotiated debt settlements: If you prefer to settle outside of court, Mr. Newman can help you negotiate a just settlement.
Soliciting the help of a lawyer ensures that your case is handled effectively and efficiently. Mr. Newman knows how to use the tools available to you and ensure highly successful outcomes. As a result, many previous clients have left positive reviews of their experience with our practice.
