Collections Attorney in Fort Lauderdale Helps Clients Recover Funds

Florida firm maximizes efficiency and effectiveness in debt collection

Collecting commercial or retail debts often requires more than a phone call or a strongly worded letter. Debtors can be extremely creative and persistent in their efforts to avoid their obligations, often concealing assets, avoiding service of legal documents and throwing up roadblocks. That is why lenders and small business owners pursuing the payments they are owed should have a lawyer who is equally relentless and innovative on their side. At Marc Brown, P.A. in Fort Lauderdale, we are a Florida firm with extensive experience representing financial institutions, contractors, landlords and other creditors in every type of collection matter. With a track record of successfully realizing recoveries on delinquent accounts of all sizes, we can be counted on to maximize the likelihood of a favorable result.

Knowledgeable advocate handles all type of debt collections and recoveries

Effective collection requires knowledge of bankruptcy law, the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and the Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act. It is also critical to have a practical understanding of the methods that work best to help businesses recover what they are owed. We have developed a strong track record handling matters that involve the collection of:

  • Florida and out-of-state judgments
  • Accounts receivable
  • Secured and unsecured loans
  • Promissory notes
  • Personal guarantees
  • Credit applications
  • Bad checks
  • Unpaid invoices
  • Delinquent condominium association fees

Whether you have one delinquent customer or a large portfolio of outstanding receivables, we take a strategic and cost-effective approach to collections. We understand that every day that goes by and every dollar that goes to attorneys’ fees affect your bottom line. That is why we maximize efficiencies in our efforts, whether in negotiations while litigating against debtors.

Thorough litigator handles wage and bank account garnishment actions

Creditors who have not been paid can initiate proceedings to garnish a debtor’s wages or bank accounts under Florida law. We explain what must be established in order to secure a Writ of Garnishment. Some clients opt for this process because court authorization can be obtained and funds can be recovered without alerting the person or company that owes you. Regardless of the type of debt involved, our firm prepares the necessary support for such relief and advocates for you in court if the target seeks to remove the garnishment.

Seasoned lawyer uses a full range of other legal collection methods to secure payment

Our efforts involve every tool we can use to enforce the rights of creditors. We litigate debt collection actions in civil courts as well as alternative dispute resolution proceedings. If you are working on a building or repair contract and are looking to file a mechanic’s lien or bond claim, we’ll advise you of the relevant deadlines and procedures. As trusted counsel for general contractors, subcontractors, businesses that provide materials and other clients within the construction industry, we’re well versed in the best ways to achieve a prompt, successful resolution in these matters. Our firm also provides vigorous defense against any debtor counterclaims in such actions.
