In many law offices and collection agencies around the country, new staff and young attorneys get hired on a regular basis, and some come to the table with very little knowledge of creditors rights, bankruptcy and debt collection practices. ALQ has a number of educational pamphlets and guides that will give every newcomer a quick but thorough run down of commercial collections that will support their knowledge and skills, to aid in getting the new collector up and running. Many of them are available on our website. Some of our educational materials include:

How to write a solid plan for building a sustainable book of business
Attorney at Law Magazine
One of the easiest ways to fail in business development is to fail to plan. Currently, 95 percent of attorneys don’t have a written plan for how they are going to grow their book of business this year. A business development plan should include the big picture of what you want to accomplish over the next 12 months, and also break down your actions and behaviors on a daily basis.

Businesses can actually learn from hackers
Inside Counsel
Rather than corporations getting angry at hackers and cyber-criminals who break into their networks, they may want to learn some of their methods and strategies in order to improve their own cyber protection.

What our clients have to say:
We have been working with ALQ for over 10 years and they are a fantastic company to deal with. They are very responsive with any questions or concerns that arise. I would recommend ALQ over any other law list!

— Shelby Truesdale, VP of Client Services, R.R. Beach Associates, Dover, Delaware

20 years ago, Beau Hays and I took a leap of faith and decided to begin a commercial practice together. One of the first things we did was to attend a CLLA meeting in Chicago. At that meeting, I had my first introduction to the ALQ list, meeting Tom and Nancy Hamilton. Upon returning to Atlanta, we signed up for the ALQ listing and have continually been in the ALQ to this day in our present firm. Through the intervening years, ALQ has been a valued partner to our business, providing referrals and introductions to new contacts and sources of revenue. With the addition of Jeremy Brown to ALQ’s team, their commitment to our firm has strengthened. But, above and beyond the business relationship, I count the people at ALQ as friends and colleagues, whose help and encouragement have been a pillar of support through the years.

— Emory Potter, Partner, Gonzalez Saggio Harlan, Atlanta, Georgia
