Re: Amounts owed to [CLIENT]
This firm represents [CLIENT] in connection with amounts due to him from [DEBTOR]. If [DEBTOR] is represented by counsel in this matter, please forward this correspondence to your attorney and notify me immediately of such representation
As you surely know, [DEBTOR] currently owes [CLIENT] $[XXXX.XX] for missed payments pursuant to an agreement the parties reached in $[XXXX.XX], which set up a payment schedule through which [DEBTOR] promised to pay [CLIENT] on a monthly basis until [DATE], in satisfaction of the debt it owes [CLIENT]. In addition, $[XXXX.XX] more in payments under that agreement will come due between now and [DATE].
[CLIENT] requires immediate payment of amounts overdue and, following that, prompt payment of future amounts as they come due. Failing either of those things, [CLIENT] is prepared to pursue legal action against you for the full amount he is owed, plus attorney fees and costs. This will subject your firm to levy, garnishment, and seizure of assets to satisfy the amounts owed. I think it is fair to say that the fundamental facts that would be at issue in such a lawsuit are not really in dispute.
On behalf of [CLIENT], this firm is prepared to serve a complaint in the form of the unsigned draft complaint attached to this letter should you fail to make payment as specified within 1 week. Payments should made out and addressed to [LAW FIRM].
Please contact me if you have any questions.
