When it comes to collecting on our overdue account receivables, “We Thank Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager.” Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager uses a consultative approach to collections to allow for maximum recovery, 100% of monies due us within a short time frame. Their focus and professionalism have continually gotten us paid without having to expend our resources to chase bad debt which allows us to concentrate on business. With Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager, it has always been a superb one stop client service with the results we wanted. We highly recommend this collections law firm.

We had a debtor that stopped paying us completely. The past due services dated back from September ’08 to February ’10. We did the work, and expected to be paid. At this point, the claim was four years old. We were unable to collect within house, so we reached out to FFGN on November 8, 2011 and the full amount was collected on April 11, 2012. We needed the touch of FFGN, who had the ability to take it to litigation (should it have needed to go). The debtor ignored the demands made by FFGN and so they recommended to proceed with the Summons and Complaint. That got the debtors attention and we got paid. Jocelyn’s team was able to collect- without our time and money being spent in the Court room. Not only did they collect 100% of the monies due, but FFGN dealt with the debtor respectfully while keeping our bottom line on the forefront. Next time I won’t wait for years to turn the claim over to Jocelyn and her team.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks for all you have done to collect the debt from our delinquent client. We had exhausted all our efforts when we turned to FFGN for help and they came through big-time. Their professional, deliberate approach did the trick. You were able to get a judgement against the debtor and we are pleased to be receiving regular payments. Without you we would still be owed the money. With your help we have prevailed. Next time I promise not to wait so long to bring you in to a situation like this.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the firm of Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager for their hard work and dedication in assisting us in debt recovery for our clients. When our own team of experienced collection specialists feel that a claim must be escalated to legal demand, we send our New York accounts to FFGN. In the 2 1/2 years that we have been forwarding these claims, we always encounter an extremely efficient, effective and responsive team of individuals. Everyone in the office is professional and dedicated to meeting our needs. Their collection efforts and results speak for themselves. Their firm affords us one of the highest recovery rates among the arsenal of law firms we utilize nationwide. Whether it is an up to minute status report or a "client friendly" explanation of legal terms and litigation procedure, FFGN provides us with service, collection expertise, and above all, results!

I have known FFGN throughout the past 20 years. Within those years, they have been working with our company's Coface North America, C.N.A. Insurance and Continental Insurance. Over these years we have always felt our documentation was treated with confidentiality in mind. We have enjoyed a high rate of recovery, clear communication and documentation has always been our goal and her firm has provided this to us on each case. Ms. Nager and her staff have always been professional, helpful and recognized the importance of keeping our clients and our staff up to date and current on each file. It is with pleasure that I provide this recommendation.

I am very satisfied with the professional services provided by Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager. This law firm is highly professional, aggressive, diligent, when it comes to debt collection. I wouldn't use any other firm.
Ed Herbst, Zalmen Reiss & Associates
After looking for an effective law firm to assist my company in collecting its aged receivables, we retained the law firm of Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager and have been completely satisfied. We have received a high level of personal attention, and had some great success with some very difficult cases. The firm analyzes all cases and customizes the appropriate solution, whether it be suing for non-payment, foreclosing on a lien or suing the general contractor based upon a breach of fiduciary duty. FFGN put in a tremendous effort and did not stop until my company received what was due to us. We highly recommend Frank, Frank, Goldstein and Nager!
Stephen G. Hrivnak, Midland Elevator Company
I want to thank you and your colleagues for helping us to successfully collect a debt from a very difficult client. We had been trying unsuccessfully for about three years to collect the balance owed on almost three dozen invoices. All we ever managed to do was listen to our client's long and very annoying litany of lies. Fortunately for us, our accountants knew of your firm and highly recommended your services. I wish you continued success and will happily recommend your services.

For the past several years, Jocelyn has efficiently and effectively handled our collection cases; and we have been very pleased with the outcomes. Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager's rate of recovery has consistently exceeded our expectations. In addition, Jocelyn is responsive and a pleasure to work with. The service we receive is efficient and professional. I highly recommend the services of Jocelyn and her firm.

Jocelyn was a key vendor that I used to assist my firms in understanding their rights under the law and the remedies they have to recover fees that are owed to them. The look on the faces of the business owners that come out of Jocelyn’s sessions are always the same; owners are stunned but empowered to know they have the ability to capture what they believed to be lost fees. Jocelyn’s firm is like no other debt collection firm I have encountered, in that they focus on education for their clients. Jocelyn and I have now agreed that she will speak at my Columbia University sessions for Minority, Women-owned and Local contractors as I begin my role there as Executive Director of Construction Business Services. Jocelyn is scheduled to instruct a seminar next spring at Columbia University’s Construction Mentorship program called “Protect Your Bottom Line: Effective Strategies for Getting Paid”. Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager, P.C. is able to act as consultants to educate clients. This helps to minimize exposure to past due receivables, increase cash flow and reduce negative receivables, ultimately helping their businesses grow.

Jocelyn was given a 500K debt to collect that was already 6 months past due, and it was obvious that we would not get paid. What is truly incredible is that we reached a settlement of the COMPLETE amount that was due us as well as the interest costs in carrying this debt. What makes her incredible is that this company is foreign based, and yet she was successful in finding and freezing their assets in the US. She also was very successful in collecting a 100K invoice that was already 6 months past due, and due to her efforts this was settled to our satisfaction. There is no one better!!!
