Collecting debt for small businesses in the greater Cleveland area for over 16 years!
Attorney Hall provides experienced legal services for business to consumer collections, debt recovery, landlord-tenant disputes, and creditor's rights within the greater Cleveland Area. For the past 20 years, 16 as an attorney, she has successfully collected debt and helped keep the client-debtor relationship healthy.
After graduating from Wittenberg University she joined her family business in Cleveland, Ohio. This business provides goods and/or services prior to payment and there were many past due accounts the company had to send to a law firm for collections, where the firm kept 33% of what they collected. Ms. Hall began her own small claims division within the company and filed suits herself, as an officer of the company, on their past due accounts. However, some things non-lawyers just can't do, including filing a garnishment. She solved this problem by attending law school at night while she continued to work full time. She became the in-house counsel for the family business and took over 100% of account receivable recoveries.
Ms. Hall collected millions of dollars for her family business and other small businesses owners. Contact Attorney Hall to help collect your company's unpaid invoices at a low contingency rate of 20%. Ms. Hall has been an attorney in Ohio since 2006 and in the U.S. Northern District Court of Ohio since 2007.
Extending credit to customers is an easy way to increase sales In some industries extending credit is not only common, but also expected. While extending credit to your customers has significant benefits there can be an issue when the customer fails to pay on time.
Collecting from customers that can’t or won’t pay you is one of the trickiest parts of running a business. If you're too lenient, you may not ever get paid and if you're too strict you could lose a good customers who just need a little flexibility.
I work hard to keep my client and his customer relationship in tact, which can be done even when litigation is required. Extreme collection efforts are not always necessary to get your money, especially when a collections attorney is involved. However, if litigation is required, I will protect your interests at all stages of the process; from the initial contact with the debtor, the preparation and mailing of a demand letter, filing a lawsuit and if needed post-judgment collection by garnishment of wages, attachment of a bank account and/or examination in person of the judgment defendant’s assets. For years I have attended hearings in Cleveland Court, Bedford Court, and Euclid Court as well as the Northern District of Ohio Bankruptcy Court, to collect unpaid invoices so business can keep their business profitable.
Debt collection is a highly regulated industry and you need to adhere to legal guidelines. While you’re an expert in your line of business, you may not know enough about debt collection and the laws that surround it. A debt collection attorney, on the other hand, must keep up to date on all state and federal laws pertaining to the collection of debt.
When you think of a family owned business, most people think a mom-and-pop stores. A lot of times this is true, but not always. I doubt you think small when you think of Walmart. Either big or small, being profitable is necessary. That means collecting unpaid invoices for goods and or services you have provided to a customer.
Some try and collect in-house, but unless you are an attorney there is only so much you, even an officer of the company, can do when it comes to obtaining and collecting on a judgment. Sending your accounts to an attorney with a collection agency will increase your chance of payment in full and leave you free from the stress of collections, especially since I don't get paid unless you get paid! For 16 years I have represented clients in Cleveland, Euclid, Bedford and more in the greater Cleveland area.
Many times construction and restoration projects involve insurance claims or a payment plan. That means companies are putting up their own money to buy the supplies and pay their laborers before the company gets paid. So what do you do if they don't pay? What if they keep the insurance funds? What can you do? Do you need to hire a collection agency? An attorney?
I understands how to help you protect and enforce your lien rights. If contractors and suppliers don’t get paid on a construction project you want to make sure a mechanics lien is in place to secure payment. There are steps/notices that must be done prior to filing for a mechanics lien and they all have a somewhat short window to be completed. It is important you do not miss your window. All general contractors, subcontractors, laborers, construction managers and suppliers of any tier are afforded the protection of mechanics liens
