Our Cost-Conscious Pledge: More Negotiation & Less Litigation
We understand that one of your major concerns is cost, including legal costs. Our mission is to reinforce the urgency of your claims. By stressing timely resolution, we are able to resolve many matters without filing a lawsuit. Indeed, we have determined that the perceived potential of going to court enables us to negotiate from a position of tremendous strength. Because we work on a contingency basis, we are result-oriented, thereby making Ring & Green APC more cost-effective than other collection alternatives.
We make absolutely no settlements without your authorization. As soon as an offer is on the table, we contact you and discuss the offer's merits. Then, we continue to negotiate—a proven method that has repeatedly yielded results far above our clients' expectations. We always focus on lump-sum settlements and accept Visa and MasterCard. For most payment plans, we use promissory notes. The promissory note enhances our chance of collecting if payment ceases and litigation becomes necessary.
Of course, if we cannot negotiate a settlement that is acceptable to our client, we will discuss whether a lawsuit is appropriate on a case-by-case basis. If litigation should become necessary, we effect prompt pursuit of the matter and have the resources to do so. Our firm has handled virtually every type and size of creditor lawsuit, including successful enforcement of major levies involving U.S. Marshals with block-long moving vans.
Recovering Your Money
Upon input of your assignment, we immediately send the debtor the first in a series of well-crafted collection letters, along with an acknowledgment to you confirming we have commenced our efforts. Each collection letter is specifically tailored to the particular category of claim. When appropriate, we conduct our correspondence in Spanish. As a matter of course, we thoroughly analyze each file to determine all liable parties and collectability, inputting all essential data into our state-of-the-art collection software. At no extra cost, we order address updates and run the debtor through various bureaus and search engines, both to identify additional responsible parties and to locate all additional addresses—ever expanding our ability to make contact. Per arrangement on account, we also can apply our skip tracing and title search capabilities to lock down firm assets for further action.
Speaking directly with the responsible party also is a key to Ring & Green APC's success, which is why we waste no time in making our first collection call. We use our best efforts time and again to reach all responsible parties and collect. Although we are aggressive in our efforts to recover what is due to you, we do not compromise courtesy and respect in our communications with debtors.
Putting Our Clients First
At Ring & Green APC, you, the client, are our foremost priority. Our philosophy is to solve problems, not merely process cases. We never lose sight of the fact that it is your money we are recovering. We keep all our clients fully informed as to our activities through monthly statements, current trust accountings, and timely payment upon receipt of proceeds. On the 15th of each month, we send monthly progress reports to each of our clients. These reports include all payments due to our clients from monies deposited into our trust account during the previous month. Online viewing is also available. You always will find us to be accessible and available. We are there to listen to your concerns, and we remain in constant communication until your collection matter is settled.
