Collections Law

Don't get in line, get paid! You provide services or sell products to a customer or client and they do not pay you. They keep promising to pay, to no avail. You want to try to maintain some goodwill with the client but you need the money. How long are you waiting before sending the matter to an attorney? My advice in these trying economic times is act now.

You are probably not the only one who the customer/client owes money. In addition, they may be contemplating bankruptcy. We have varied approaches based on whether you desire to maintain some business goodwill.

Attorney Ahearn represents hundreds of businesses throughout Massachusetts and assists them with their collection issues. His Office has been quite successful in getting their clients paid. A collection agency can only go so far. They can send a letter or two and make some telephone calls but that is the extent of their efforts.

If you retain this office, we will employ all legal means to get you paid. Our efforts may include a simple demand letter, filing a civil lawsuit, attaching bank accounts, garnishing wages or attaching real estate in order to secure assets to satisfy a judgment.

The best news is that it does not cost you anything out of pocket. Our legal fee is contingent upon recovering money for you. Our fee is based on a percentage of the amount collected and is very competitive.

You may be able to recoup attorney's fees and costs, in addition to what is owed to you if the clause below is in your contract or invoice and was agreed to and signed by the customer/client prior to the service being performed or goods sold. Typically a contract will have the following clause:

Customer agrees and acknowledges that payment for the above invoice is due and payable in full within 10 days of the date listed above. Customer further agrees and acknowledges that the customer shall pay a charge of 1 ½% per month (18% annually) on all amounts past due. The customer agrees to pay, in addition to any amounts due, all costs reasonably incurred to collect any outstanding balances owed including, but not limited to filing fees and attorney's fees.
