Collecting a late debt payment is always a challenge for business owners, and in the state of Pennsylvania, legislature protecting consumers and vendors against debt collection makes it even more difficult.

Corporate Collections Services
Aspects of corporate collections our attorneys handle include but are not limited to:
- Business to business debt collection
- Writs of attachment
- Writs of possession
- Bank account levies
- Wage garnishment
- Assets investigations
Prejudgment Writs of Attachment
Even with a court judgment to pay a debt in place, that judgment cannot be followed through if there aren’t enough funds to fulfill the judgment. Because of this, debtors will sometimes attempt to evade having to make payments by transferring or even concealing funds from the court. In order to avoid this problem for creditors, our attorneys can file a motion for a prejudgment writ of attachment once debt collection litigation is underway. This writ of attachment will prevent the debtor from moving or hiding financial assets, so that a payment judgment can be satisfied, and the creditor can receive what they are rightfully owed.
Repossessions and Bank Account Levies
While we always conform strictly to the regulations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and the Fair Credit Extension Uniformity Act (FCEUA), our attorneys know when to get aggressive. We can file a motion for an asset repossession, such as repossession of a vehicle, piece of property, or other collateral, or push for a bank account levy by procuring a writ of execution from the courts. A bank account levy will freeze a debtor’s account, and entitles the creditor to the full amount of funds granted by the writ of execution.
At Berkowitz Klein, we understand that businesses need to maintain their bottom lines to continue to thrive and prosper. Failure of a debtor to pay what is owed can cause not only mental stress, but long-lasting financial damage.
