The American Lawyers Quarterly is a directory of law firms which specialize in collections, creditors’ rights and bankruptcy. The ALQ directory has been the definitive source for attorney representation in the collection industry since 1899 (over 120 years). Collections are generally handled by our listed counsel on a contingent fee basis. There are law firm referrals for all cities, county seats, and sizable towns in the United States, Canada, and most commercial centers throughout the world. American Lawyers Company standards have been maintained in accord with all published American Bar Association Rules and Standards for law lists.
Qualified forwarders of collection business have access to an excellent service department which is maintained in our Cleveland office.
