We handle only commercial (B2B) collection matters, with over 20 years’ experience helping businesses collect unpaid receivables throughout New Jersey.

If you’re not ready yet to engage us for litigation, we offer a complimentary DIY collection letter and a minimal flat-fee, collection attorney demand letter service.

Once you engage us, we apply immediate, aggressive pressure to resolve the matter quickly and save you litigation costs.

    • Before filing, we typically send the debtor an unfiled draft of the lawsuit with a final demand for payment. This lets the debtor know that we’re serious and ready to file.

      • If the matter then resolves, it saves you time and hundreds of dollars in filing and service fees.

      • If not, we file the suit and work aggressively towards judgment.

    • Our general approach is to take an aggressive stance early on, and maintain it until you recover payment.

Your file receives the direct attention of an experienced commercial collection attorney. Mr. Bender does not delegate to support staff the review of your claim or our own debtor investigations.  We believe your success begins with thorough attorney preparation.

Throughout the entire process, you will receive regular updates, prompt responses and open communication from Mr. Bender directly.

Unlike many larger firms, we can offer you more flexible fee options in the form of contingency, hourly or blended (hybrid) fee arrangements.
