Lawyer Drafted Debt Collection Letters

Demand letters can be an effective way to collect debt. Having access to a lawyer can help you with debt collection matters related to your business.

Issues to Consider with Collection Letters

Debt collection letters should be well written and follow best practices. Here are several key elements you may need to consider:

  • Amount Due

  • Days Past Due

  • Note on previous attempts to collect

  • Summary of their account

  • Instructions for how to reply

  • The due date for payment

  • Any late fees or penalties
Your contact information
  • Applicable laws, including the statute of limitations or time limit to file court action if the issue is not resolved

Demand letters can be an effective way to collect the debt. However, there are issues you may need to consider. You can have more success if you have a lawyer review your letter before you send it. When you join LegalShield, you can submit your documents for review and get consultation on how to address the situation. Depending on the type of business legal plan, a designated number of document reviews are included each month and year at no additional charge.

Have a Lawyer Write a Demand Letter

When a debt collection situation calls for a more aggressive approach, having a lawyer write a collection letter on behalf of your business can let the other party know you are serious.

  • Are you unsure about drafting a demand letter or handling the matter by yourself?
  • Do you have a particularly prickly debtor that requires a more direct approach?

  • Is the debt you’re trying to collect rather large and you want professional help?

If you’ve sent invoices, followed up with emails and left voicemails with no response, it may be time to have a layer collect the debt for you. All small business plans from LegalShield include lawyer-drafted collection letters sent on your behalf. Depending on the type of business legal plan, a designated number of collection letters each month are included at no additional charge.
