St. Ignace Debt Collection Attorney

J.D. Praasterink understands that one of the most challenging aspects of running a business, particularly a small or family business, is collecting debt. Using the services of a debt collection attorney offers a number of benefits. For business owners, having an attorney pursue unpaid debts allows them to keep their attention focused on the work of their business, and to avoid debt-collection practices that could threaten their business image or reputation, especially in the age of social media. A debt collection attorney knows how to collect payments in accordance with Michigan and federal law, and when the time has come to escalate from demands for payment to a lawsuit.

Individuals who are owed debts often have even less leverage than businesses do to collect what is owed them. Involving an experienced St. Ignace debt collection attorney can make evasive debtors willing to return phone calls, and make payment arrangements.

Help from a debt collection attorney is not an expense; it's an investment that reduces your stress and increases your cash flow. Contact St. Ignace attorney J.D. Praasterink today for a free consultation to learn more how he can help you or your business collect on unpaid debts and accounts.
