Hanna & Jarbo – Debt Collection Attorneys

Small Business Debt Collection Services

In an ideal business situation, you would expect debtors to remit payments as soon as an invoice or repayment falls due. Even where they default, necessitating initiating collection measures, you still hope they will honor the agreement and clear their dues.

As you know that’s not always the case.

Compliant Recovery

Despite the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforcing strict regulations to safeguard American borrowers against unfair collection practices, inexperienced and rogue debt collectors are still prevalent. Engaging such agencies to help with debt collection for your small business can be a risky move. 

In most cases, engaging in illegal actions such as issuing threats to debtors, demanding amounts above the set legal limit, revealing their indebtedness to other people (co-workers, family members, etc.) tend to backfire on the debt collector. 

Debtors who understand their rights will often capitalize on such loopholes to file a violation complaint, which can land the collection company in deep trouble, in addition to not being able to recover the money. On top of potential litigation, such misconduct by the collection agency can end up ruining your reputation, leading to loss of business.  

At Hanna & Jarbo, we are well-conversant with debt collection laws  which enable us to remain complaint while aggressively pursuing the debts. And in case a debtor goes into hiding, making it difficult to recover the debts, we can skip trace them and initiate the collection process.


We prioritize recovery through out-of-court negotiations as we believe this is essential in fostering good relations with the customer. However, if the debtor ignores our agreements or communication, we often escalate the case to the court. 

Generally, we only file a case if we are confident we have a good chance at winning. Hence, we conduct thorough preparation by gathering all the necessary documents and facts to build a strong case and increase our chances of winning.

Wage Garnishment

Whenever a debtor fails to submit payments as agreed, we may request the court to issue an order instructing their employer to withhold a certain percentage of their salary.

Specialty Practice Areas

Engaging a specialty debt collection firm for your small business guarantees better outcomes. Usually, specialty lawyers have in-depth knowledge in their area of specialization, meaning they are well-conversant with the best approaches to take to get the accounts settled. 

Thanks to their expertise, they spend lesser time studying the case, which leads to less downtime. Specialty lawyers also have a solid reputation, which can intimidate opponents, giving them an upper hand in negotiations.
