gavel and scales of justice

A national network of attorneys paired with data-driven processes help us expedite lawsuits for our clients.

In-House Legal Counsel & Staff

Our local attorney personally handles the majority of our New York accounts. Additionally, he manages a nationwide network of attorneys for past due consumers that reside outside of his service area. His staff works very closely with our clients as well as the collection staff to obtain the correct information to justify legal action.

Suit Authorization Requests

If a consumer refuses to make any attempt to pay an account, and attachable assets or employment is verified, CBHV will recommend that legal action be taken. At that point, a “Suit Authorization Request” letter is sent to the client. Once the client verifies the balance as correct and gives written authorization for legal action, legal proceedings can commence. CBHV advances all court costs and attorney fees.

Experience & Efficiency in Lawsuits

We currently expedite over 100 lawsuits a month for our clients. A computerized system has been developed, which allows for the efficient processing of the paperwork associated with each lawsuit. Some of the procedures used to insure prompt and vigorous disposition of all legal accounts are:

  • Consultation twice a week with the process servers, to insure timely serving of summonses (a major problem in many legal offices)
  • An automated tickler file system for the timely processing and filing of all paperwork
  • Personnel are utilized to perform any required asset or employment searches
  • Periodic follow-up with county sheriffs and city marshals to insure prompt handling of bank/property levies and garnishees
