Collections

As a small business owner, sooner or later you may run into a situation where your customer is not paying their bill. This can cause serious hardship for your business, and make it difficult to pay other necessary operational expenses.

If you have a debt to collect, but are concerned about getting into legal battles with the person who owes you money, we can help you determine the best course of action.

The Law Offices of Daniel T. Goodwin strives to maintain a professional, respectful relationship with debtors, and our attorneys and staff have the background to effectively navigate the legal process for optimal results. Our team has access to specialized knowledge and tools that allows us to perform skip tracing and asset location services that are typically not available to collection agencies. We have also cultivated strong relationships with private investigators and process servers to help locate a debtor who has gone off grid.

When it comes to collecting a debt, our attorneys’ decades of experience with litigation and business law will guide you on whether a particular legal solution is also an optimal business solution.

If your debtor files for bankruptcy, we can enter our appearance in federal bankruptcy court and ensure your legal interests and creditors’ rights are protected to the fullest extent during the bankruptcy process.

If you are a contractor or other service provider, we can help you file a mechanics lien to collect what is owed to you.

If you have obtained a judgment against an individual or company, our attorneys can help you collect on the judgment though:

  • Obtaining a lien on real property
  • Wage garnishments
  • Bank levies
  • Other property attachments, with garnishment, sale and levy
  • Charging orders
