Committed to serving all your legal needs
The first step to resolving a collection case can sometimes be the last. We work to quickly make demands upon and connect with your customers to resolve past due balances through payments in full, settlement agreements, and monitored payment plans.
After exhausting all pre-suit collection efforts, we file lawsuits to obtain judgement, and recover the commercial debt, personal property or collateral.
Perfection and Enforcement of Liens
There are tools available to help make sure you are paid for your services or your property is returned. Whether you are pursing mechanic's liens, UCC liens, other statutory liens or lien foreclosure, we are here to help.
After a judgment is obtained, our work begins. Our services include asset investigation, garnishments, levies, debtors' examinations and foreclosure. We work to help recover everything possible post-judgment.
Foreign Judgment Domestication
In order to enforce judgment in a location other than where the original judgmnet was obtained, we offer foreign judgment domestication. We see to it that judgments from other states are entered and docketed in states where the judgment debtor may have assets.
Credit Procedure Audit
Every step of our credit process review is meticulous. We cover every aspect, including a review of credit application, guarantees and review and revision of policies and procedures.

How We can Assist You with Preference Actions
When customers file for bankruptcy protection, sometimes businesses are served with a demand letter or a complaint by a Bankruptcy Trustee to recover payments made by the customer to the business within 90 days preceding the bankruptcy, this is called a Preference Action. We assist clients in defending against preference actions. We advise clients on defenses they can assert if they are hit with a preference lawsuit. We outline our client’s available defenses to prevent the Trustee from recovering funds for the bankruptcy estate. In most cases you will have a deadline of 30 days from the date the Summons and Complaint was issued by the court to respond to the lawsuit.
“The connection to WFJ is so valuable. Not only do we benefit from Daniel (Reich) personally managing our accounts and answering our questions, but we have access to a nationwide team of professional collectors and attorneys. We could not replicate all those contacts on our own.” -Credit and A/R Manager Yokohama Tire Company
