Many businesses are too quick to write off debt as a loss or sell debt for pennies on the dollar to a collection agency. While some debt is simply not worth pursuing, we can perform a thorough investigation and cost/benefit analysis so you can make a fully informed decision.

The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act places a great deal of responsibility on the debt collector to behave professionally, rather than in a threatening, abusive, or deceptive manner. We adhere scrupulously to the law, so you never have to fear civil liability for unlawful collection practices.
