At Harrison & Johnston, we have extensive experience representing creditors in every type of collection matter and have a track record of success in realizing recoveries on delinquent accounts of all sizes.
Collecting commercial debts is rarely as easy as making a phone call or sending a strongly-worded letter. Debtors can be extremely creative and persistent in their efforts to avoid their obligations, concealing assets, avoiding service, and throwing up roadblock after roadblock. That is why lenders and business owners who need assistance in collecting outstanding debts should have equally relentless and innovative lawyers.
Maximizing Efficiency and Effectiveness in Debt Collection
Whether you have one delinquent customer or a large portfolio of outstanding receivables, the attorneys at Harrison & Johnston take a strategic and cost-effective approach to collections. We understand that every day that goes by and every dollar that goes to attorney’s fees hits your bottom line. That’s why we maximize efficiencies in our efforts, whether in negotiations with debtors or in litigation.
We also know that commercial collections can be fraught with risk beyond just writing-off bad debts. Efforts that run afoul of strict federal and state laws involving consumer debt collection can expose creditors to additional and significant liability. We have a full understanding of all applicable debt collection and consumer protection laws and conduct ourselves accordingly without dampening the effectiveness of our work.

Our efforts involve every tool available to enforce the rights of creditors.

We also provide vigorous defense against any debtor counterclaims in such proceedings. All of our efforts are focused on keeping the process moving as swiftly as possible, aggressively fighting any tactics designed to thwart or slow the collections process.
