Attorney Drafted Collection Letters
Demand letters can be an effective way to collect debt. Having access to an attorney can help you with debt collection matters related to your business.
Issues to Consider with Collection Letters
Debt collection letters should be well written and follow best practices. Here are several key elements you may need to consider.
- Amount Due
- Days Past Due
- Note on previous attempts to collect
- Summary of their account
- Instructions for how to reply
- Due date for payment
- Any late fees or penalties
- Your contact information
- Applicable laws, including the statute of limitations or time limit to file court action if the issue is not resolved
Demand letters can be an effective way to collect debt. However, there are issues you may need to consider. You can have more success if you have an attorney review your letter before you send it. When you join LegalShield, you can submit your documents for review and get consultation on how to address the situation. Depending on the type of business legal plan, a designated number of document reviews are included each month and year at no additional charge.
Have an Attorney Write a Demand Letter
When a debt collection situation calls for a more aggressive approach, having an attorney write a collection letter on behalf of your business can let the other party know you are serious.
- Are you unsure about drafting a demand letter or handling the matter by yourself?
- Do you have a particularly prickly debtor that requires a more direct approach?
- Is the debt you’re trying to collect rather large and you want professional help?
If you’ve sent invoices, followed up with emails and left voicemails with no response, it may be time to have an attorney collect the debt for you. All small business plans from LegalShield include attorney drafted collection letters sent on your behalf. Depending on the type of business legal plan, a designated number of collection letters each month are included at no additional charge.
