OUR MODUS OPERANDI

The traditional procedure followed by most attorneys, is to 'chase processes' i.e to issue summonses and to follow up with further court processes as quickly as possible in order to generate maximum fees. That is not what we do.

We have found from many years' experience that -

  • persons owing money usually only start taking matters seriously when contacted by an attorney, knowing that the attorney can 'take them to court';

  • the best way to achieve payment is by continuous personal contact;

  • if matters are explained to a debtor in a reasonable and understandable manner, they are usually amenable to entering into a payment arrangement; and

  • if the matter is conducted by personal contact and payment arrangements, it is seldom necessary to go as far as issuing a summons, taking judgment and executory steps.
Our contacts with debtors are mostly resolved by formal payment arrangements and, if possible, putting debit orders in place.
