Debt collection law firms, also known as creditor’s rights law firms, focus on the collection of debt through the court system. While traditional collection agencies are not authorized to file lawsuits against debtors, collection attorneys specialize in taking debt cases to court to try to obtain court-ordered judgments against debtors. In addition to teams of legal professionals, many collection law firms have extensive collection operations that conduct more traditional debt recovery activity.
