At Bristol & Dubiel LLP, our Texas debt collection attorneys create debt recovery solutions for businesses across the nation that have collection accounts in Texas, including Dallas, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. Whether you’re a small business with a single unpaid debt in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, or a Fortune 500 company with large collection matters, we have the skills and experience necessary to help you recover the money you are due. Our Dallas debt collection attorneys represent all types of businesses, including those that provide goods or services, both secured and unsecured. We will thoroughly examine your case and determine whether the debt is valid, and whether it would be cost-efficient to attempt to recover that debt through litigation.
We handle commercial debt collection of secured and unsecured debt. Such debts commonly include open accounts, defaulted promissory notes, lease obligations and breach of contract claims or any other obligation to pay a debt. While individual debtors in Texas are afforded a number of statutory and constitutional exemptions concerning their real and personal property, business entities have no exemptions. There are several remedies the commercial creditor can pursue to collect its debt or judgment in Texas including sequestration/replevin
, receivership and execution
Commercial debts are not subject to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and so our first communication with the commercial debtor often is through the service of process where a Sheriff, Constable or private process server, personally delivers a copy of the lawsuit along with Citation to the business debtor’s designated representative. However, there are circumstances in which our clients believe that an ongoing business relationship is still salvageable and, therefore, a demand letter may be the better route to take and make one last attempt to resolve the debt prior to filing a lawsuit. Each case is different and we will discuss all options with the client prior to the initial communication to determine the fastest way to get the unpaid debt resolved.
