If you are part of a legal case involving debt collection, you may want to hire a debt collection attorney. A lawyer with experience in debt collection can help fight for your rights as a consumer, defending you against a debt collector or creditor. Conversely, if you have successfully sued someone but still haven't been paid, a debt collection lawyer can help you recover money you are owed.

In some cases, debt collection attorneys work for a percentage of the amount owed and only receive payment when you collect your money.
