Seeking some advice on how to pursue a client who has failed

Customer Question

Hello,
Seeking some advice on how to pursue a client who has failed to pay their invoices to my branch. I work for a small staffing firm (my branch in located in Florida; Corporate out of North Carolina).
Several months ago, a client decided to stop paying their invoices and has since vanished. The client was a payday loan collections company. We have considered serving paperwork to the client at their home address, but are not sure if this is our best course of action. After doing a bit of general research, I am of the understanding we would have to pursue this differently because of the type of business the client ran.
The client did sign a contract with us stating they would pay all bills, and that we would pursue legal action should invoices for our services not be paid.
Do you have any recommendations on the best way to pursue this matter?
Thank you for your time.

How old are the invoices?

Expert:  Infolawyer replied 3 months ago.

Normally I would suggest a sending a final invoice notice, then farming out to a collections law firm to handle on contingency fee basis. You may also phone the client and advise this will happen, and work out a payment plan which avoids the process, in writing.
