Why you need an Atlanta Debt Collection Attorney
The laws governing collecting debt in Atlanta, can be a bit overwhelming to the common business owner. All you really want is the payment for the services or products that are owed to you by one or more of your customers. Every business has some type of plan to contact customers that are late with their payments whether 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, or 120 days. However, some businesses do not really have the time to chase after customers and constantly make demands for payment, as they have to keep providing their service or products to other customers that are paying their payments in a timely manner. When you have contacted a customer that is in arrears with their payment and they still do not send payment or stop answering your telephone calls, you should consider contacting a Georgia Debt Collection Attorney.

• Can I collect attorneys fees and collection costs on top of the debt
• Can interest be added to the balance due and collected from the debtor
• What is the statute of limitations for a debt collection case in Georgia
• Can I file suit against a debtor with just an oral contract or do I need a written contract
• Should I use a collection agency or a collection lawyer to collect a debt that is owed to me
