Lawyer Drafted Collection Letters

Demand letters can be an effective way to collect debt. Having access to a lawyer can help you with debt collection matters related to your business.


The Benefits of Writing a Demand Letter

When a tenant or other customer is in default of a contractual obligation to pay you and initial efforts to collect the debt have stalled, it may be time to write a strong demand letter. Here are the key benefits of sending a final demand letter:

  • Demand letters can result in delinquent debtors taking the situation more seriously.
  • Demand letters can cause a debtor to make a payment or settle.
  • Should you end up in court, your arguments will be well organized and ready to go.

If you have questions about whether it's time to send a demand for payment, you can join LegalShield today and be on the phone with a provider lawyer in as little as 4 business hours after initial contact.

The Elements of an Effective Demand Letter

Effective demand letters generally include certain key elements. While your language should be strong, keep it polite. Attacking the debtor will only harm your chances of collecting the funds you are owed.

  • The facts of the situation. Who did what and when? 
  • Reference relevant terms from any contract signed between the parties. 
  • A specific demand. Exactly how much is owed? 
  • A deadline with a specific date.
  • A statement that you are prepared to pursue legal remedies if your demand is not met. 

With LegalShield, you get access to lawyer-drafted demand letter templates, legal consultation on an unlimited number of business legal matters and your lawyer can review your demand letters prior to sending them.

How to Get Better Debt Collection Results

Working with a lawyer who can guide and assist your business related to debt collection efforts is a great first step. LegalShield small business members often receive better results by having their lawyer assisting in the debt collection process. 

A debt collection letter on a provider law firm’s letterhead can make a significant impact. All small business plans include a certain number of demand for payment letters each month and year, written and sent by your provider lawyer. Furthermore, instead of a letter, a provider lawyer can make a call to seek to resolve the matter for no additional charge. 

Not only do demands directly from a lawyer get better results, but you also do not have to pay commissions on the funds collected.
