Unpaid lawyer bills

As I enter my seventh month of independent (solo for now) practice I'm dealing with the practical issue of a fairly high rate of unpaid receivables. So, I am going to immediately begin using a third-party collection agency.

I recall a recent discussion between lawyer colleagues balancing using a collection agency versus just suing clients. I know the preference was using the collection agency. I think the main rationale is avoiding ARDC complaints or malpractice complaints from clients.

I'll tell ya how it works!
