Creditors Rights

DOUGLASS & ASSOCIATES CO., L.P.A. serves as general counsel to a variety of corporations and organizations, providing our clients with complete legal services.

Pre-suit collection letters issued by a law firm distinctively communicate the critical point a delinquent account has reached. The expertise of our collection account representatives, under the guidance of experienced attorneys, informs debtors of our client's legal rights to payment. All telephone and fax contacts are managed within our firm under the direction of attorneys, not by a regional or national call center. The advantage to our clients is that more dollars are recovered sooner because debtors are frequently more willing to negotiate acceptable payment arrangements in an effort to avoid legal action. We can file suit when appropriate, saving valuable time.

Our membership with the American Alliance of Creditor Attorneys, Inc. (AACA), the National Association of Retail Collection Attorneys (NARCA), Ohio Creditor's Attorney Association (OCCA) and Hubnet gives us the ability to handle legal accounts nationally. If it becomes necessary to file suit outside our primary service area of Northeast Ohio, we can, with client consent, handle the suit through one of the networks of qualified collection attorneys. All information can be electronically transferred to a qualified collection law firm in the jurisdiction where our clients need representaion.

We have a sophisticated dual server computer system designed specifically to service collection accounts and to generate management reports. This allows you to keep track of your recoveries. We provide detailed statements monthly on each account within ten (10) days of the close of the month. We can receive and report on collection account activity via e-mail.
