A Mechanic's Lien was improperly filed against our client’s building. I immediately contacted Jocelyn Nager of FFGN. Jocelyn quickly assessed the events and facts of the underlying claim and confirmed the lien was invalid. She contacted the lienor on our behalf and was able to quickly resolve this matter without costly litigation. Due to Ms. Nager's legal expertise, we paid a reasonable amount to purchase an application to vacate the Mechanic's Lien. Luckily, we were able to resolve this issue in a timely manner. Due to the firm's sensible knowledge of the Mechanic's Lien Law, Taube Management was not required to spend time or money to vacate the lien. Ms. Nager negotiated a settlement that led us to pay a reasonable amount to the vendor. I highly recommend Ms. Jocelyn Nager as my contact for all legal needs.

WindowRama has been a client of FFGN for almost two decades. During that period, Jocelyn has represented my company's interests against various debtors. They have represented us through our credit insurance products and as a direct client. Whenever a claim was sent over to Jocelyn and her firm, they have done their best to collect. We keep very clear records and files. We have FFGN pursue the corporation as well as the personal guarantor, and have the contracts/documents to back them up. This aids in FFGN not settling our claims for less than 100% of what we are entitled to and are able to collect the principal, the interest, and the attorney's fees. Communication is very important to me and they continuously keep us in the loop, with consistent updates on our files and status reports. If we want an additional update, all we have to do is call and we are connected with the attorney handling our file. I highly recommend FFGN for debt collection needs.

We had a highly disputed claim with one of our customers. Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager, P.C. had been recommended to us by a friendly competitor, so we decided to give them a chance. Jocelyn and her team were terrific. They pushed the case forward almost to trial and thwarted the debtor’s attempts to delay the case. The firm worked the case throughout the 17 months of litigation to push the case to ‘trial ready,’ to the point where the debtor was ready to settle. The claim was settled for more than the debtor had ever offered. Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager, P.C. put the debtor in their place while applying pressure through to the end to make sure the deal closed. Jocelyn and her team maintained contact and great communication throughout the entire settlement process. Thank you all for your help!

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 carry this debt.

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!!!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your firm for your outstanding collection performance and success! When we first met, you made promises that you would stand out among the rest and you were certainly correct! We are most excited about the recent settlement that you were able to obtain on our behalf from a very difficult debtor on a claim that was almost two years old. It was handled professionally, promptly and most of all you always had my company's best interest in mind. Your fees have been more than competitive and your staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. It has truly been a pleasure working with your firm and I look forward to many more years of working together.

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.

FFGN has provided us with the counsel and support we needed to achieve the best possible outcome with our collection issues. Our parent company requires us to utilize arbitration and Jocelyn and her team have been very effective at securing collection without having to engage costly arbitration services and court costs. Jocelyn Nager and her team are always a pleasure to work with. They are efficient, effective, and responsive to our needs and most importantly – deliver results. I would recommend FFGN to anyone seeking help with their debt collections.

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.

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.

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 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.

Collecting money was generally the last thing on my mind, until it was the only thing on my mind. As a rapidly growing business cash flow become more and more important, and the defects of a non-existence collection policy became very apparent.

Jocelyn was a godsend. We engaged her to review and develop a credit and collection policy. We met for a few hours in my office where she asked great questions and learned about my business, customers, employees, software capabilities, and current procedures. We discussed business challenges and how it was imperative to have a strong collection policy. It was only after truly understanding my business, industry and staff, that Jocelyn began to make recommendations which were discussed, adjusted, and finally agreed upon. Within a few weeks a comprehensive credit policy was drafted, my staff trained, and the policy implemented. Jocelyn was kind enough to follow up on multiple occasions to ensure her work she completed had value and that we had implemented her recommendations. My average receivable period has declined, and my cash flow is up. We are one step closer to getting organized thanks to Jocelyn.
