Debt Collection Law

Winegrad, Hess, Friedman & Levitt, LLC’s attorneys have significant experience in the collection of debt for professionals, businesses, individuals, community associations, and private utility companies. Our client-focused approach to debt collection includes pre-litigation, litigation, and post-judgment efforts, all designed to maximize our clients’ recovery.

We fully understand and comply with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act as well as Maryland statutes to make sure that our clients are in compliance and not at risk for costly violations.

We have sophisticated computer software that allows us to provide unprecedented data and personal service to our clients for each matter referred to us for collection. Our attorneys use the latest technology to locate and track debtors’ addresses and place of employment so that they can be served and judgments collected.

If possible and consistent with our clients’ interests, we pursue alternate dispute resolution options such as arbitration and mediation. If traditional court litigation is unavoidable, we aggressively use all pre-trial, trial, and appellate tools and proceedings to achieve our clients’ objectives. Our attorneys fairly assess each matter and advise our clients of the risks and costs of litigation or other potential resolutions. When a favorable settlement is an option, our attorneys skillfully pursue that resolution as well.

Our attorneys work with creditors concerning debt collection in the following areas:

  • Obtaining Judgments
  • Post-Judgment Collection Procedures
  • Wage and Property Garnishments
  • Collections for community associations
  • Foreign Judgments
  • Preparation of Promissory Notes
