Nationwide Legal Support

Miller, Ross & Goldman provides our clients with comprehensive legal support in all 50 U.S. states through our nationwide network of commercial collection attorneys.

Although more than 90% of all commercial claims placed with us are successfully recovered free of any need for legal remedies to enforce payment through the courts, some situations may require a collection lawsuit to protect our client's financial interests.

When a lawsuit is prudent and necessary, we will contact you to discuss our recommendations and obtain your written authorization to proceed on your company's behalf. In the event we exhaust our collection efforts without a successful payment resolution, we will evaluate the merits of legal action through the process outlined below.

Claim Legal Review Process

In most cases, the following criteria must be met to warrant consideration for legal action:

  • The principal balance owed is at least $5,000.00 U.S. Dollars.
  • Your indebted customer is an active business, or you have a contract that includes a Personal Guarantor.
  • Valid and legible documentation in full support of the indebted claim has been provided.
  • Your indebted customer and/or its Guarantor, has not filed for bankruptcy protection.

Provided these conditions exist, we will then advise you of the costs and process necessary to move forward with legal action to enforce collection of your commercial claim through the courts.

Exclusive Contingency-Based Collection Attorney Fees

As a Client of Miller, Ross & Goldman, you will not be charged hourly attorney fees for the collection lawsuit to be filed and handled on your company’s behalf. Our legal contingency rate of 35% will apply only to funds successfully recovered as a result of the elevated process.

Please note that certain circumstances may require conversion to an hourly retainer, including: The debtor files a countersuit; The case requires a legal workload beyond the scope of what is practical on a contingency basis; contractual legal venue is in a jurisdiction outside the debtor's state. Please contact our team with any questions or concerns.

You will be invoiced for court costs, filing fees and service of process fees, which must be paid before legal action can commence. These additional costs will also be pursued from your indebted customer (the defendant), in addition to the past-due balance owed, whenever possible.

Exceptions to Contingency-Based Legal Fees

Some legal claims involve of complex range of situational elements that require a comprehensive amount of due-diligence, legal research, discovery etc. in order to build and present a solid and compelling case. In such instances, a contingency-based fee agreement without a non-contingent fee or hourly retainer may not be possible. These circumstances include:

  • A countersuit filed by your indebted customer
  • Complex contractual disputes
  • Claims involving fraud or any other alleged criminal conduct
  • Claims requiring mediation and/or arbitration
  • Claims that must be tried in more than one jurisdiction
  • Claims that lack sufficient evidentiary support
  • Claims involving multiple witnesses and/or requiring depositions

In the event legal action against your indebted customer cannot be handled solely on a contingency basis, we will contact you to discuss an augmented strategy best-suited to the situation. Any time a non-contingent fee or hourly retainer is indicated, as our Client, you can be assured of the most competitive rate possible to aggressively pursue a successful outcome.
