New York (PRWEB) March 27, 2009
Eltman, Eltman & Cooper PC, a leading credit and collections law firm specializing in judgment enforcement, has developed an investigations program unique in the accounts receivable management industry. In addition to using state-of-the-art technology and data-mining techniques, the investigations unit capitalizes on the experience and professionalism of former NYPD detectives. Where some companies might use "skiptracers" to locate debtors or their assets, the Eltman firm has committed itself to the rigorous professionalism of the world famous NYPD.
The investigations team, lead by a former commanding officer in the New York City Detective's Bureau, is comprised of several former detectives and ranking police officers. Drawing on their formal investigations training, each team member has brought fresh investigative tactics and fine-tuned techniques to locate debtors and assets. These novel techniques are a defining characteristic of Eltman's investigative prowess and have lead to a formalized case management system unmatched by any other investigations unit in the industry.
To accommodate the ever-growing operations of the investigations team, the firm opened a freestanding Intelligence Gathering and Data Verification Center that brings together industry investigators specializing in all niches of investigations in one location. The "Intel-Center" houses lead auto and utility investigators as well as the highly trained and closely supervised Special Enforcement Investigators. Recognizing the importance of collaborative relationships from their time with the NYPD, the team works cooperatively with civil enforcement entities, including local sheriffs and marshals, to expand enforcement initiatives.
The quality of information produced by Eltman's proprietary investigations unit has been instrumental in the firm's ability to collect on accounts where previous agencies have failed. The unit's diverse team of investigations professionals and its multifaceted investigations strategy allows for assets to be located and seized through various means and for debts to ultimately be liquidated to the greatest profit for the firm. Proven to be much more successful than traditional methods of debtor location and "skip-tracing," Eltman's investigations unit sets the firm apart from its industry competitors. Lastly, Eltman's self-developed unit ensures that the firm's investigation efforts are administered under the strictest adherence to the law and managed in a way that is consistent with the firm's high ethical standard.
