We handle your business debt collection so you can focus on running your business.

Mr. Emerick, a seasoned business debt collection lawyer in Dallas, and President of the Law Offices of Sam Emerick, P.C. helps creditors obtain payment on debts. Mr. Emerick delivers efficient and tangible results to creditors and businesses who are looking to collect a debt.

The Law Offices of Sam Emerick help business creditors who are frustrated attempting to collect debt. Many times, creditors believe that they will be able to resolve the problem on their own; a letter requesting payment, a phone call asking for an explanation, or a proposed meeting regarding delinquent accounts receivable. Unfortunately, these measures rarely produce any tangible results.

I have helped many businesses turn receivables into cash. With thirty-five years of legal knowledge and experience representing and advocating for my clients, I have the knowledge and experience in business debt collection matters to help make the best decisions about your collection problems.

Creditors often seek the help of collection agencies. This won’t help. Collection agencies aim to collect debt while receiving a percentage from creditors on the amount collected. Collection agencies are rarely successful in securing payments from debtors.

Collection agencies lack the legal muscle and ability required to obtain judgments and enforce payments through post-judgment collection through the courts in Dallas. Typical tactics of collection agencies involve contacting debtors by phone and mail. The aggressive and unprofessional approach of many collection agencies has led to statutory restrictions embodied in the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

As a licensed attorney and Dallas debt collector, Mr. Emerick understands that filing suit against the debtor is your only realistic way to recover your businesses’ money. Before filing a lawsuit, Mr. Emerick’s law office may negotiate with a debtor, but normally, Mr. Emerick will file a lawsuit seeking a judgment on the amount owed.

From there, Mr. Emerick uses his 35-year legal experience and all available legal remedies to secure payments from debtors. Some solutions may involve skip-trace and asset-search, then after judgment, garnishments of bank accounts, and turnover of the debtor’s assets. If you are frustrated by unsuccessful attempts to recover debts and monies owed, contact a seasoned collection lawyer in Dallas, Sam Emerick at the Law Offices of Sam Emerick, P.C.

Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress IIED: Texas Courts Part 1

Today’s blog will concern the tort of Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress (IIED) in Texas Courts civil proceedings and focusing especially on this tort as it relates to the Dallas Texas collection attorney. Defamation and wrongful discharge, have a different set of standards and are not addressed herein. How do Texas Courts define Intention Infliction of Emotional Distress? The Dallas Court of Appeals held in 2013, that actions for IIED are available when a person intentionally inflicts severe emotional distress in a manner so unusual that the victim has no other recognized theory of redress, also holding that such cases are rare. Hairston v. SMU 441 SW3d 327 (Tex. Civ. App- Dallas 2013, pet. denied). Also, see Hoffmann-La Roche v. Zeltwanger 144 SW3d 438 (Tex. 2004). What are the legal ‘elements’ of IIED? The elements of a cause of action for IIED proceedings are as follows: The Plaintiff is a [...]

Unconscionability, Waiver, Limitation Of Liability: Part III

Q—What is the ‘discharge’ defense? Another sticky area of contract defenses is the area of discharge, on account of plaintiff’s repudiation of the contract or plaintiff’s own material breach of the contract.  If plaintiff repudiates a dependent promise or materially breaches the contract itself, then the defendant will allege that it has been discharged from performing the contract, due to plaintiff’s repudiation of the contract.  Long Trusts v. Griffen 222 SW3d 412 (Tex. 2006). Stated another way, a party that does not perform its own obligations cannot enforce the remaining terms of the contract against the defendant.  Interestingly, of course, from defendant’s point of view, if the plaintiff repudiates the contract, or if plaintiff materially breaches the contract, this will also support defendants own breach of contract claim against the plaintiff, through a counter-claim by the defendant against the plaintiff. Q—What about the ‘venue’ for breach of contract lawsuits?   [...]

Unconscionability, Waiver, Limitation Of Liability: Part II

Q-- What can be done if my contract is unconscionable? If a portion of the contract, or the entire contract, is found to be unconscionable, the court has several choices: Refuse to enforce the entire contract Sever out the unconscionable portion from the contract Limit the application of the unconscionable provision Q—Is a Waiver a defense available to the Defendant? What is it? Another contract defense often seen by Texas Collection attorneys is the contractual defense of waiver.  Waiver is usually defined as an intentional relinquishment of a known right and is either made expressly or indicated by conduct, that is inconsistent with an intent to claim such right.  Ulico Cas v. Allied Pilots 262 SW3d 773 (Tex. 2008). For instance, conduct such as prolonged silence or inaction may amount to a waiver.  Waiver may be implied only to prevent fraud or inequitable consequences as plaintiff’s intent is the primary [...]
