There are some things that you should think about before you contact an attorney. The first thing you should do is gather up the information that your collections attorney will need. Get any agreements that you may have had or have with that delinquent account or the debtor, and any invoices or tickets that you’ve sent the delinquent customer. Also gather records of any payments that they may have made. Assemble this information, as well as any letters that you’ve sent out to the debtor asking them for payment, including any email correspondence.
Timing is important. You don’t want to wait too long to take action on any delinquent accounts. There are applicable statute of limitations that apply, and that is something that the collections attorney will also ask also about. Your attorney will ask the date you started providing products or services and when the debt was due to determine if the statute of limitations has run,
Tell your attorney if there are any liens that you could record or liens that you could place on any specialized, fabricated products that you may have fabricated for the client. If you did some oil and gas fieldwork, there may be liens that you can place on the oil and gas lease.
