About Eric

Learn Eric’s areas of practice.

I am a graduate of Columbia University and Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law. I have over twenty-five years of experience representing creditors nationwide.

The Schutzer Group, PLLC, is dedicated primarily to the practice of debt collection, litigation and judgment enforcement. [1] 

The Schutzer Group, PLLC () is located in New York, is staffed by a team of experienced collectors and attorneys extensively trained in Federal, State and local laws affecting the collection industry. Our approach is persistence and insistence, while always maintaining a high level of professionalism. We utilize the latest technologies to skip trace and locate debtor’s assets. I believe the combination of my personnel, company philosophy and collection techniques are responsible for the high rate of success and the ability to collect accounts where the competition has failed.

Although we make every effort to resolve your accounts receivables with your clients on a voluntary basis, when legal action is proper, you can rest assured we will not let your accounts stagnate in order to avoid fee splitting with outside counsel like other collection agencies or overbill you like other law firms.

After obtaining a judgment, me and my team, using our knowledge and experience along with the latest technologies including special access to private and public databases, are able to recover the full amount of the judgments plus any accrued interest by: finding debtors anywhere in the U.S.; locating their employer and garnishing their wages; locating their bank accounts and seizing them; uncovering stocks & bond accounts and taking them; locating real estate and personal property and levying and/or put liens on them; locating their spouses assets and attacking them; discovering assets which were transferred to another person or company to avoid paying a judgment and seizing them; and with regard to corporate debts, attacking the personal assets of the underlying owner. We have become recognized as leader in the field and our services are commonly utilized by many large institutions representing a broad spectrum of industries as well as by fellow attorneys who have previously been unsuccessful in their attempts to collect their client's judgments.

 Feel free to give me a call if you have any questions, would like to set up a consultation to see if me and my law firm can be of assistance to you.


Very truly yours,

Eric P. Schutzer, Esq.

Completed work
Thank you Mr. Schutzer. I had nearly given up on collecting the moneys I was entitled to when I met you. You were extremely diligent and communicative in the process, which ultimately came to a great conclusion.

Eric Schutzer Attorney
Eric was attentive, patient and totally knowledgable regarding the matter he handled for me. He was available when I needed to speak with him, and he made me feel that my case was important to him. He is professional and efficient, and I would highly recommend his services.

This attorney was able to do where many others have failed. In the past everyone I used was out done in their attempts to collect from a debtor that without question owed me the money. Mr Schutzer was a professional in all regards and in the end reasonable with his billing.

Superb lawyer
I have had occasions to use other lawyers in the past for my collection needs, but Eric got the results quickly and in the most professional manner. I was truly impressed. He was easy to work with, explained everything he was doing and extremely effective. I highly recommend him and his company.

I highly recommend
He is an incredibly talented lawyer who really cares which is not easy to find. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about many topics of the law he was invaluable to help me with my case. I had a previously lawyer who was not good and thanks to Mr. Schutzer her was able to turn about my case which I know was not easy even though I am not a lawyer. I would highly recommend without any reservations.

Best Collection Attorney/Law Firm
I tried collection agencies and other lawyers to collect money for me but none of them were successful. Eric Schutzer and his law firm The Schutzer Group were recommend to me. They were extremely professional and I was very impressed with their level of knowledge. They were able to accomplish what others were not, they were able to get me the money that was owed to me together with interest and court costs. I highly recommend them to anyone who is trying to collect a debt.
