Commercial Collections

Scafidi Juliano, LLP is not a collection agency. All accounts are handled directly by experienced attorneys, pursuant to specifically-tailored collection strategies and these strategies are communicated in advance, and consistently followed. We understand that decisive action is often the most successful method of collecting payment so we pride ourselves on being able to commence the formal legal process without delay—we often file suit and appear in court on motions for prejudgment relief within hours of referral.

In addition to this aggressive approach, we find that consistent client communication and early account referral improve the likelihood of collecting on even the most challenging accounts. For this reason, we occasionally offer alternative fee arrangements to fit a client’s needs.

Without the inherent barriers to communication imposed by the billable hour, our firm’s clients are encouraged to refer accounts for collection before the erosion of any available legal options and without trepidation that they are writing a blank check, funding a legal process that they cannot control. With early and consistent client communication, maximum results naturally follow.
