Legal Collections (and How to Avoid Going to Court) with David J. Cook

Episode 17

We've covered Canada, but we haven't talked as much about collecting debt in the United States. Today we're talking to a top US collections lawyer, so let's crunch some numbers. The United States sees about three times as many lawsuits per capita as Canada. It's a tough field. David J. Cook is a San Francisco collections attorney with an impressive track record. He's a prolific author and penned "The Debt Collector's Handbook" published by the American Bar Association, covering every aspect of debt collection, including enforcing court judgements. He worked (and won) the highest profile collections case in American History against OJ Simpson. David Cook's insights can help you understand collections, and how to avoid legal collections, in the United States.
