Unfortunately, the alternative of going to court needs to be considered in many of the claims placed with our collection agency. Typically, debt collection litigation is not that expensive since the debt collection attorneys we use work on a contingency basis. However, it can be a lengthy process and there is no guaranty of success, which we define as actually collecting, not just winning the lawsuit.
We carefully evaluate all options and explain them to our clients when debt collection litigation has to be considered. When litigation is the only option, we believe that evaluating the potential return on investment is the key criteria for our clients to consider. Many factors go into this equation.
