Legal Remedies

CRFSolutions offers a variety of legal processes including traditional legal services for commercial credit grantors. Out of state accounts are forwarded through our legal department to a network of collection attorney's. There are a segment of accounts that qualify to be litigated through a process known as "Perfecting" an account. This involves litigating accounts that have had a mechanic lien filed. CRFSolutions also provides an innovative small claims process for certain accounts that are better qualified for small claims.


Legal Remedies

CRFSolutions has been a member, in good standing, of the Commercial Law League of America since 1992. We have a select network of attorneys nationwide. Unlike other agencies, our high collection work standards and intense research has kept our legal dept from being a dumping ground for uncollectible accounts. Therefore, when our attorneys receive files from our agency, they know they are receiving clean collectible files and therefore give the benefit of impeccable legal services. CRFSolutions  will determine a minimum balance that is deemed as cost effective to pursue through litigation. If there are accounts that are below the predetermined threshold, and have a positive chance of being collected through litigation, we will make the recommendation to authorize litigation.


Legal RemediesEven in a good economy, the cost of suing your customers for money they owe you can be very expensive due to the filing fees and the attorney fees involved. In addition, the legal process can be, and usually is, very time consuming and can seem to go on forever. These reasons lead most Creditors and Collection Agencies across this country to write off millions of dollars of debt because the individual balances owed are not large enough to warrant the cost of legal action. You can believe that most of your customers are aware of this and use this knowledge when they decide on which invoices to pay.

An option that you should consider for these types of customers is Small Claims Court. Judgments are obtained much faster then standard legal accounts at a fraction of the cost. Disputes are resolved inexpensively and quickly and the rules are simple. The hearing is informal and the judgment is just as enforceable as any Municipal or Superior Court judgment. Best of all, in most States lawyers are not allowed. That fact alone explains why things move so much faster in Small Claims Court.

From the first day we opened our doors in 1991, CRFSolutions has offered this alternative to all of our Clients, and the results have been significant. To date, we have administered thousands of Small Claims cases on behalf of our Clients which have enabled CRFSolutions to collect money that other agencies would have given up on. Over 20 years later, we are still the only collection agency in the country that offers this truly unique service, and we can administer Small Claims actions for you in any State where it is available.

Let us show you what Small Claims can do for you!!
