Debt Collection

Debt Collection Attorneys serving Mount Prospect and Orland Park Illinois

Unpaid debts can drastically impact not only a business’ bottom line, but also individuals’ financial stability. At Cohen Jutla Dovitz Makowka, LLC our attorneys are experienced in using individually tailored strategies to help you collect on what you are owed so that you or your business is not left in a vulnerable position due to the actions of others. We understand that collecting debts can be difficult, whether it is for unpaid business invoices or delinquent judgements from a court proceeding, and that in many cases the time that is involved can put a significant burden on businesses and individuals who are attempting to go about their usual activities.


It is often a good idea to seek the assistance of an attorney when handling debt collection matters. Federal laws, such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), govern the actions of both creditors and debt collection agencies, and can put an individual or company in a litigable position if they inadvertently violate these regulations. Not only does retaining an attorney to assist with your debt collection activities bring their knowledge and resources to your side, it will also ensure that you do not accidentally run afoul of these statutes.

Preserving Client Relationships

In some cases it is in a company’s best interests to attempt to preserve their relationship with a client who has become delinquent in their payments. Businesses, especially small businesses, do sometimes have periods of financial difficulty, and that does not necessarily indicate that they are not viable as a company. When a business has been a good client for years, working with them when they are having troubles can often assure a loyal, reliable customer for years to come. Our legal team at Cohen Jutla Dovitz Makowka, LLC specializes in negotiating with both tact and firmness in these sorts of situations: with a little bit of understanding and flexibility we believe that most business relationships can be preserved with creditors still collecting what they are due.
