Results-oriented, Professional Debt Collection Tactics
At J. Mark Heldenbrand, PC, we emphasize a results-oriented approach to debt collection, working hard to help our clients receive the money they are owed from borrowers, customers, and clients. In our experience, we have found that debtors are often more willing to pay their debts when collections are handled in a polite, courteous manner. Furthermore, professional collection tactics reflect well on our clients, while being effective. Our success is measured by the many long-term relationships we have established with Arizona creditors.
Obtaining a Judgment, Garnishment Order & Other Collection Options
Before taking active measures to collect on a debt, a creditor must receive a judgment in court declaring that the creditor has the legal right to demand payment from the debtor. This generally involves filing a lawsuit against the debtor. Once a judgment has been granted in a creditor's favor, various tools are available to locate and convert debtor assets.
In certain cases, we can obtain a garnishment order, which allows a creditor to take a debtor's property or wages before the debtor has possession of the property or income. Under a wage garnishment order, a creditor can contact the debtor's employer and require the employer to deduct a certain portion of the debtor's wages each pay period and send the money to the creditor. Other methods of collecting on a judgment debt include a levy on the debtor's bank account and/or liens on the debtor's property.
Given our knowledge and understanding of the methods used by creditors to collect on debts, J. Mark Heldenbrand, PC is an invaluable resource for debtors who need assistance dealing with creditors and settling their debts. We have helped many businesses proactively assess their legal options in regard to outstanding bills, and negotiate new and more favorable terms with creditors, thus allowing businesses to continue operations and return to financial stability.

J. Mark Heldenbrand, PC has assisted clients in commercial and residential landlord-tenant matters for over 25 years. Mr. Heldenbrand is one of Arizona’s leading experts in these areas, and regularly speaks at related continuing education seminars.
Legal services, including both commercial and residential leaseholds/tenancies, include:
- Rent collection
- Lease disputes
- Defense of lawsuits
- Defense of fair housing claims
- Transactional work, including drafting of leases, addendums and purchase agreements
- Commercial lease disputes
Negotiating and entering into a commercial lease should be done with guidance from an expert. A commercial lease is normally a long-term, binding contract, often involving large sums of money. These types of relationships are normally the product of significant negotiations between a commercial landlord and tenant. As an example, there are no standard forms for commercial leases. If you plan to enter into a commercial lease, or are already in one, either as landlord or tenant, our office can assist with any and all legal issues that may arise.
Residential Landlord Leases
While generally simpler than a commercial lease, residential leases still pose numerous legal concerns to landlords and tenants. For example, landlords must comply with numerous consumer protection laws, such as the Fair Housing Act (which prohibits discrimination in the sale, rental, and financing of apartments or homes based on race, color, national origin, religion, sex, familial status, and handicap), as well as laws capping security deposits and protecting tenant privacy.
