Curtis, Curtis & Brelinski, P.C. has helped banks, credit unions, manufacturers, doctors, accountants, construction firms, and other businesses and individuals collect debt in Jackson and throughout Michigan for decades. Our collections team has the experience, knowledge and determination required to quickly move from intake to post-judgment collections, so that you can get your money as soon as possible.

Our Debt Collection System

There is no secret to collecting debt successfully. It takes a system with processes and procedures. It requires diligence and constant attention and follow-up. It takes a good working knowledge of the statutes, court rules, and unwritten procedures followed by the court clerks.

From the start, we review the information and documents to understand the situation. We analyze the known facts and consider the unknowns in order to develop a collection plan with our client. Based on the plan, our collection team moves swiftly from demand letter to post-judgment, all the while gathering information about the debtor to assist with collecting your money.

Our collections team utilizes state-of-the-art software that allows us to carefully track the progress of each collection matter. Our system diaries important follow-up dates and alerts us when a debtor has failed to cooperate, so that we can quickly follow up with the appropriate step. This system also allows us to provide our client with accurate updates regarding the status of their collection matter.

Our lawyers and legal assistants know the court clerks and their preferences, and we maintain relationships with certified court officers and process servers in Jackson and throughout the State of Michigan, to ensure that the debt collection case is moving forward as it should, without needless delays, from case filing to post-judgment garnishments and seizures.
