When you need to collect an overdue debt, it is critical to talk to a lawyer to make sure you are complying with debt collection laws. A lawyer can help answer all of your legal questions about debt collection. A lawyer will first need to understand the amount and type of debt you are owed (secured vs. unsecured) and what contractual relationships are in place in order to advise you on the next steps you can take -- whether that is filing a lawsuit or drafting a demand letter.
Prepare for your first meeting or call with a debt collection lawyer using Priori’s debt collection resources, including our debt collection worksheet. Our debt collection checklist helps you think through key legal questions about debt collection in advance of your meeting with your lawyer. You can even send your debt collection worksheet directly to your lawyer, so your lawyer can prepare ahead of time and make your interaction as productive and cost-effective as possible. If needed, Priori can also connect you with a lawyer in our vetted network who can assist you with your legal questions about debt collection.
