Protect your company if someone wants to discharge a debt

If you work for a company that either extends credit or provides goods and services, you rely on the timely payments from those indebted to you to continue operating. When people try to avoid their financial obligations to repay your company, it can hurt your bottom line.

Communication guidelines under the FDCPA

The word "harassment" is often thrown around quite liberally when it comes to debt collections. Many in Dallas may understand that they legitimately owe on their debts; they just do not like to be reminded of it. You (as a business owner) have every right to collect what is owed to you; at the same time, you do not want your reputation damaged by those who you have to pursue for outstanding debts. A question that is often posed to us here at Palmer & Manuel PLLCB by clients in your same position is what does the law dictate when it comes to communicating with those that owe your company money? 

What limitations are set on debt collections?

It is not uncommon for a small business in Texas to have customers owe it money. Depending on the type of business you run, you may often sell items to customers on credit. Doing so means that you should also have a collections process in place to go after customers who do not pay their debt. When you do any type of collections, you should understand debt collection laws in the state to ensure you are not breaking any.

You deserve payment

You did the research, connected with your clients and complied with all of the necessary regulations to get your financial business off the ground. With all the work you put into it, you expect other people to do the same and to repay their part of your partnership. At Palmer & Manuel PLLC, we want to help you get what you are owed if your Texas investments do not go exactly as planned. 

What are your rights when a client files bankruptcy?

If you own a business in Texas, you likely rely on customers' timely payments to pay expenses and fund growth. When a customer not only fails to pay you but also files bankruptcy to prevent any sort of debt collection action, you may be torn between pursuing the debt into bankruptcy or giving up the claim altogether. If you are like many business owners, you may assume that pursuing the debt is not worth your time or money.  But this might not be the case at all.
