Not certain if attorney has bankrutcy experience as we nver ha to use him for same. Good point about consultation. It has been a while since I had to deal with collection agency, but I thought they usually do not collect fee unless they collect and then it is usually a significant portion
Yes however they have not indicated they are filing bankruptcy . . . only closing business. I searched through PACER to see if there were any actions, but none indicated.
We do not have any information regarding who they may be using for legal representation if any
Well, here's a thought, if you really feel that they just don't have the cash and won't, (this is kind of out there), but what about being pro-active and seeing if they'll barter with you ... are there assets, (hard or soft), equipment, client/customer lists anything at all that might be of value to you that you might be able to use to settle, before they just "high-tail it and run?"
OR possibly work off the debt by providing some sefvice you need
Just did a search and it appears that there may be Lawyers in your state that will work on contingency (and my gut is that they may be more creative, know more avenues, etc. than the typical collection agency)
I believe everything has a lien on it (UCC filings), but that is a great idea, thank you.
Do you mind my asking what is you( and their) business?
are you still there?
Looks like you may have stepped out of the chat .... I'll give it a few, and then switch to Question and Answer mode ... We can still continue the dialogue (brainstorming), just not in real-time ... but back to your original question, I think a phone consultation with your attorney should be the first stop
