This is an attorney's guide to balancing numerous cases in different locations while following both state and federal laws and regulations and also using the most effective policies and procedures to meet each client’s specific needs.

This valuable guide by Michael L. Starzec and Christopher R. DiPlacido provides assistance for attorneys dealing with collection litigation issues. The 2019 edition contains a thorough examination of new Illinois Supreme Court Rule 280 as well as the addition of two new chapters: the first discussing motions to reinstate from a breached payment plan and the second summarizing common counterclaims and other actions. Other topics considered in the handbook are theories of liability, assignments, small claims pleading requirements (notice pleading), defending against motions to dismiss, case-specific motions to dismiss, adherence to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, trial practice, and much more. There is thorough discussion of each topic with best-practice guidance provided, as well as Practice Pointers and checklists that will aid the regular collection practitioner as well as someone new to the field.
