“The nature of any business, unfortunately, leads to a percentage of bad debts. Hann typically assigns files to Mr. Sklar to collect balances that Hann was unable to resolve internally. Mr. Sklar is able to obtain judgment on our behalf and collect on balances that Hann otherwise would have had to write off as bad debt.”

How long will it take to collect my claim?2022-03-24T23:07:16-04:00

This will depend on whether it is necessary to file a lawsuit to enforce collection. We generally recommend filing suit if your obligor will not resolve the claim amicably at the outset of our collection efforts. With the recent budget cuts, many New Jersey Courts suffer from staffing shortages that delay the processing of routine paperwork in both contested and uncontested cases. Contested lawsuits are typically resolved in 6–18 months or less, depending on whether the matter is heard in Special Civil Part (for balances less than $15,000) or Superior Court (for balances in excess of $15,000).

Can I recover my attorney’s fees from the consumer?2022-03-24T23:07:13-04:00

You may be able to recover reasonable attorney’s fees as determined by the court if you have a written agreement signed by your consumer that contains a provision allowing either one or both parties to recover attorney’s fees in the event suit is filed to enforce the agreement. In a contested case, you can recover your fees only if the court determines that you are the prevailing party. Unless there is a statute providing for the recovery of attorney’s fees in your specific type of case, you will not be able to recover attorney’s fees without a signed contract providing for them.
