Our success is a direct result of the high caliber of our collectors and our unique collection techniques. Each collector has at least 10 years of experience. Many on our staff have advanced college degrees (MBAs, JDs) and have experience as senior company executives (CEO, CFO, General Counsel). These qualifications enable us to succeed where others fall short. We collect throughout the USA for our California clients.

Collection Agency Tips for Los Angeles Businesses:
The California economy continues to struggle, but in late 2012 we see some definite positive trends. Most importantly, real estate prices are rising in many areas after years of incredible difficulty. This will have a positive effect on many industries, companies, and individuals. Some may even experience significant growth that will strain their ability to pay on a timely basis as working capital financing is still difficult to get for small and mid-size companies.
If your delinquent customer is a large, well known company, then something is wrong. If you can't figure out what is wrong, then you need a professional team on your side to protect your interests and get your money. The longer you wait without making progress, the harder it becomes to get paid. Your contacts move on to new jobs, commitments are forgotten, paper trails are harder to pull together, trust deteriorates, small issues get larger, and a host of other problems may be encountered that are difficult to navigate successfully.
If your delinquent customer is a small or mid-size company experiencing explosive growth and they are just having working capital issues, then careful patience and monitoring may be all that is required. But if their excuse for not paying is for any other reason, you could be on the path to never getting paid. The sooner you act with customers who are struggling financially, the better chance you will have in recovering the most money possible. As time goes by, collectability goes down, and if their financial position worsens, the amount you may be able to collect could decline significantly.
If you are reading this, most likely you need help and you need it now. When evaluating collection agencies, they key issue is not the contingency rate, but the likelihood of that team collecting your money. We have very competitive contingency rates, but most importantly, a superior team that generates superior results. Contact us today and we'll be working to get your money tomorrow!
