Experienced Collection Attorney
Loads new cases, from the referral form. Scans in docs for petition, so we need a clean copy of the note and accounting statement indicating the balance due. Prepares affidavits and sends out the dunning letter. Contact with these office personnel will be regarding clearing up submissions that may be unclear, or requesting copies of docs if they are not legible. Docs have to be clear enough to read or the account cannot be filed.
Once affidavits are received, petitions are prepared with docs submitted by the client. They are packaged and either filed through the mail in groups big enough to make a trip to court cost effective. Also petitions are filed electronically if the court has been automated to receive such filings.
Once the petition is filed it is given a court date. The scheduling department schedules the court dates in the calendar and arranges for coverage from outside counsel.
Judgments once obtained are scheduled for garnishment. If the parties do not have a payment plan in place or have missed a payment they are garnished. This department looks for employment and files a garnishment, post payments as they come into the office and posts direct payments as they are reported from the client’s branch offices.
