— Nancy Seiverd, President, CMI Credit Mediators Inc. ;
I have been involved with commercial collection agencies since the late 1970's and have worked with American Lawyers Quarterly as a claim forwarder since that time. One thing that has always stood out with ALQ is their ability to establish and maintain a close working relationship with our agency. ALQ's timely communication and consistent follow-up have greatly contributed to our success in the world of legal collections.
— Tony Barille, Diversified Credit Service, Cleveland, Ohio;
When I opened my law practice in California ten years ago one of my first decisions was to join ALQ. This has turned out to be one of my best decisions. ALQ has not only been a constant and continual source to obtain business for our office, it has also served as a vital resource for education and connection within the entire creditors' rights community.
— Lee M. Mendelson, Esquire, Mendelson Law Group, Woodland Hills, California;
I have known Tom and Nancy Hamilton for a few decades now, receiving claims over the ALQ and being involved with them in meetings for the CLLA and IACC.

— Stephen Elggren, Esquire, Law Office of Stephen B. Elggren P.C., Sandy, Utah;
I have been an ALQ listee since the inception of my law practice some forty years ago. Nancy and Tom Hamilton assisted me in establishing relationships with clients, many of whom I am proud to still represent. I have attended literally hundreds of trade association meetings and you can count on Nancy and Tom to make introductions and foster relationships. ALQ has been and continues to be a most vital business partner.

— Jeff E. Rubin, Esq, Talianoff Rubin & Rubin, P.A., Miami, Florida;
There's just simply no words to describe the support and help we received from AMERICAN LAWYERS QUARTERLY. Every time we are in need of a competent and reliable Law Firm we always reach out to them. They are sincerely the best we ever used and had. They reply to all our requests on a timely manner and always refer us the best qualified commercial recovery attorney who in turn will assist and help out our firm and in consequence our clients in all legal services we are in need. Thank you very much AMERICAN LAWYERS you guys are awesome.
— John Roma, Executive and Sr. Director — Attorney Forwarding Division, Roma, Murphy & Horowitz;
Our agency sends hundreds of files to attorneys all over the world every week and none of this would be possible without ALQ’s beautifully organized and intuitive website. The site features are crucial to managing the volume of work we have to get through in a day. Their archive feature has saved us more times than we can count. And we have formed invaluable relationships with attorneys that are now like family thanks to Tom’s recommendations. The ALQ staff immediately responds to any question or need we may have and it’s truly comforting to know that they are in our corner. This is an easy service to recommend. We can’t do what we do without ALQ.
— Shannon Milliken, Rauch-Milliken International, Metairie, LA;
It's hard to believe, but I have been using the American Lawyers Quarterly's attorney forwarding network for about thirty years. Tom Hamilton and his staff have always gone out of their way to assist me in finding the right attorney in any location throughout the world. The American Lawyers Quarterly has been a constant in my career in the collection business and have been a valuable tool for me as a Collection Manager, an agency owner, a debt buyer and now as Risk and Collection Manager for Sterling Funding a Merchant Cash Advance Company. I've watched ALQ evolve with the times as my own career has taken various twists and turns. The American Lawyers Quarterly is an example of what a law list should be maintaining both the finest traditions of the triadic system and at the same time changing its model as the times have changed.
— Barry Kotzen, Manager Collection and Risk, Sterling Funding, Tampa, FL;
I have been listed on ALQ for over 30 years, in good times and bad. They have worked with me, supported me and when possible recommended me to new sources of business. This is a tough and competitive business we are in, to say the least. But ALQ has always been the consummate professional, loyal and concerned to a fault.
— Joel C. Richmond, Law Offices of Joel C. Richmond, Baltimore, MD;
I have had my collection law practice for 23 years. During that time I have learned to fully appreciate consistent and positive business relationships. Among those at the top is my relationship with ALQ. ALQ is fully involved at all levels of the commercial collection business at all times. Tom and Nancy Hamilton's experience and perfect combination of both a professional and personal approach to our industry enables them to provide so much more than simply a listing.
— Kevin L. String, Kevin L. String Co., L.P.A., Chagrin Falls, Ohio;
As a third generation member of the CLLA, I appreciate the long standing traditions of excellence in our industry. No firm exemplifies long standing service and excellence better than ALQ. My family has had the pleasure of both forwarding and receiving business over the ALQ. My grandfather was a co-founder of a commercial agency that used the ALQ beginning in 1927. In 1952 my father opened what is now Lloyd & McDaniel, and became a listed attorney with the ALQ. Our firm has continued the relationship all of these years, and through it all ALQ has distinguished itself as an exemplary industry leader.
— James M. "Buck" Lloyd, Attorney, Lloyd & McDaniel, PLC, Louisville, Ky.;
For more than 35 years I have been practicing law, concentrating on commercial litigation, collections and creditors’ rights in bankruptcy. As a young associate, I always saw the copy of the American Lawyers Quarterly directory on my boss' desk but didn't pay much attention to it. Only in 1988 when my partner Jules Teitelbaum passed away did I first really encounter and understand the triadic system and the world of Law List Publishers. While trying to decide to which publishers the successor firm would subscribe, conversations with colleagues guided me to the fact that ALQ was, without question, one of the first publishers to which we needed to subscribe. During the years since then, I have come to know Nancy and Tom Hamilton as colleagues and friends. Each of them is ever vigilant to make sure that I am introduced to someone I may not know and who may be a source of future business. And, it is not just to receive business that the ALQ is valuable. Often we are asked by a client to recommend a collection lawyer in another part of the country. While I may know someone from my CLLA contacts, when I don't, ALQ is one of my first resources to find someone to recommend. If I am still not sure, I pick up the telephone and call Nancy. ALQ has been and remains a steadfast part of my business resources.
— Wanda Borges, Attorney, Borges & Associates LLC, Syosset, NY;
TL&S has been listed with ALQ for 94 consecutive years. The reasons for this long term relationship are many. Tom and Nancy and their staff genuinely care about the success of your firm. For us, they are not only business partners but have become true friends. They know the decision makers for the forwarders and make a point to introduce you to them not only at conferences but throughout the year. They are reachable, responsive and most importantly, follow through. They keep abreast of and continually inform us of changes in the credit and collection industry. They regularly volunteer their time in leadership roles in the many organizations within our industry. They are ahead of all the rest with their informative industry news and timely topics. We could not exist without them.
— Kevin E. Posen, Managing Partner, Teller Levit & Silvertrust PC, Chicago, Illinois;
ALQ provides fast and convenient access to all kinds of info, listings and answers to all questions legal, whether via referral or direct reply. I simply email our rep, give him a zip code in the SUBJECT line, maybe that the file is retail, $6K or bad check, whatever, and I send it. Usually within less than an hour, the answer is on my email. It’s simple: I have requested a professional recommendation from a professional in their industry. I assume there may be different reasons to recommend one over another. It is a validation, a logic I trust, period. So far, so good! (15 years)
— Jerry L. Ahlrich, CGA, Vice President, NACM South Central, Louisville, KY;
Windtberg & Zdancewicz, PLC has formed a lasting strategic relationship with the American Lawyer’s Quarterly. The relationship exists because we receive quality referrals and can reasonably rely on ALQ's high-caliber professional services. Our firm benefits by the superior referrals we receive from ALQ's other strategic partners, and, when we are referring matters outside of Arizona we use the ALQ resources to locate well-respected and knowledgeable collection professionals. We value the personal relationship the ALQ team brings to the profession and appreciate getting thorough and complete answers to any questions we present to the ALQ team.
— Michael Zdancewicz, Attorney, Windtberg & Zdancewicz PLC, Phoenix, AZ;
Since my start in the collection industry 20 years ago, ALQ has always provided top notch service to its listees. Now, as the owner of my own firm, I appreciate so very much that service along with their team that you can count on! The forwarding agencies and firms that use them are very professional, and they are clients that are a pleasure to work with! We love the ALQ and appreciate the service they provide!
— Debra Harpe, Esq., Law Offices Of Debra Harpe, PLLC, Wilmington, North Carolina;
Once my firm became listed with ALQ, the response was immediate and impressive. In addition to the new clients, ALQ made a real difference in promoting the firm on a national level. ALQ remains the benchmark for law lists in the areas of service and quality claims.
— Todd Hancock, Esq., Prochaska Quinn & Ferraro P.C., Nashville, Tennessee ;
We began working with the ALQ about a year and a half ago and they have been a tremendous asset to helping us find local counsel in the United States. They are very timely with communication and have really helped us eliminate the guesswork from our foreign forwarding. We look forward to working with them many years to come.
— David Zannoni with Cobrosamerias, Mexico City, Mexico;
I have been a listee with the ALQ for over 20 years and am very pleased with the referrals given to my practice. In addition, ALQ is like family in that I can always call and speak with them and get their expert guidance and assistance with building my practice. ALQ was the first law list I called when I went out on my own.
— Jacqueline N. Anker, Law Offices of Jacqueline N. Anker, Santa Barbara, California;
Our office has dealt with the ALQ for the past thirteen years when I opened my own practice. While there are many important comments I might make, I am very impressed by the many referrals that come straight from the "book." ALQ is the first place attorneys look for an out-of-town attorney, and the reason they do that is because of the excellent reputation Tom and Nancy have.
— Jane Z. Hinsdale, Hinsdale Law Firm, P.C., Burlingame, CA;
Our firm is proud to have been listed in the American Lawyers Quarterly for many years. I believe we have been listed since 1925. I believe ALQ does an excellent job of screening the law firms listed in the Directory and refuses to list just any lawyer simply because the lawyer pays a fee to be listed. When local lawyers call me asking for a collection lawyer in another state, I use the ALQ to find a lawyer in another state as I believe any lawyer listed in ALQ will be competent and trustworthy.
— James Vogt, Attorney, Reynolds, Ridings, Vogt & McCart, PLLC, Oklahoma City, Okla.;
I have found ALQ to be the most professional and responsive of all of the law lists. They are always there if you have a particular question or a problem with a given matter. My relationship with them has been nothing short of rewarding both for myself and my business.
— Arthur Rothschild, Managing Member, J.A.M. Collections LLC, Morganville, New Jersey;
We have been engaged in Commercial Debt collection since 1999. It was in 2010, we started working with American Lawyers Quarterly and since then, we have been using the services of ALQ repeatedly. ALQ has the best quality list of service providers around the globe. We are pleased with their prompt responses and helpful services. Their website is a fast and convenient aid in finding collection companies and attorneys to help us in our international commercial collection matters. We contemplate to use the ALQ's services for many years to come.
— Seema Kumar, Director, MNS Credit Management Group Private Limited, India;
As our law firm concentrates on international commercial debt collection, I attend international conferences focusing on this area. Nancy Hamilton also frequently attends these conferences in order to expand ALQ, ALQ’s network of international lawyers and collection agencies and to better serve her clients. She realizes that in this global economy, international commercial debt recovery is an essential part of debt recovery worldwide.

Millennium Collections has utilized the American Lawyers Quarterly law list almost exclusively since our formation in 1997. We have found the attorneys listed in ALQ to be knowledgeable and capable in the field of creditors’ rights, and their representation of our clients’ interests to be more than adequate. The service provided by ALQ is exceptional, and they have always been responsive to all of our needs. We unqualifiedly recommend ALQ to forwarders seeking a solution to their legal requirements.
— Jonathan Rose, President, Millennium Collections Corporation, Vero Beach, Florida;
We have used ALQ as a forwarding source for the last 15 years. We regularly use ALQ's database for entering claims. It is easy to use and an efficient way to refer claims. Tom and the staff at ALQ are quick to respond if we have any questions or need a referral.
— Diana Hampton, Hampton Associates, Inc., Pittsboro, Indiana;
Congrats, Tom. I see continuous growth and influence from ALQ.
— Alia Zhang, Head of Operations at Atradius Collections China, Pudongxin District, Shanghai, China;
ALQ’s longevity serves as evidence enough of its utility in the world of commercial collections. Any organization that has proven its value to several generations of attorneys and collection agencies – not exactly the type of customers known for brand loyalty or unnecessary expenditures on irrelevant memberships – is an organization that deserves our attention. But ALQ isn’t just an impressive relic of the past, but rather a necessity to the entire world of commercial collections now. It continues to serve as a meeting ground of those representing commercial creditor needs. Personally, it’s helped me grow my practice to include clients from all over the country that otherwise would have never known of my existence. Thank you, ALQ, and to its excellent staff. Keep up the good work.
— Daniel Goldberg, The Goldberg Law Office, PLLC, Houston, Texas;
As chaotic as the progress of this industry can be, I know that I can count on Christopher Pona and his team at the ALQ to always make sure that the progress of each case will go smoothly. If a problem does arise, they are on the issue as soon as possible to make sure there are no bumps in the road.
— Laura Levy, Case Management Mgr., Nugen Recovery, Waco, Texas;

— Ray Rotella, Orlando, Florida ;
I have been a listee of ALQ since I established my collection practice in 1977. In addition, I have had the pleasure of knowing Tom and Nancy Hamilton from numerous Commercial Law League meetings over the years. They were extremely supportive when I started my practice and have continued to be an excellent source of new business. They have also been very attentive when I needed an out of state referral or when I just needed some general guidance. I consider the ALQ to be an extremely valuable resource, am proud to have worked with them and look forward to continuing our relationship in the future.
— Jay M. Niederman, Manchester, New Hampshire ;

— Sarah McIver , Legal Department, Biehl & Biehl Inc., Carol Stream, IL;
Our firm has been associated with ALQ for close to 40 years. While there are numerous lists in our industry, it has been my opinion that if you need any type of information or assistance concerning commercial agencies, there is only one place to go and that is to speak to either Tom or Nancy at ALQ. The information they give you is always accurate. If they don't have the information on hand, they will go out and get it for you. They are quality people and it has been a pleasure for my office to know them personally and deal with them on a professional basis.
— Robert S. Saxton, Brooklyn, New York ;

— Robert S. Holland, Esq., Honolulu, Hawaii ;
American Lawyers Quarterly has been and continues to be one of our most valued partners. It is an integral part of our success.

Most importantly, our relationship with ALQ requires minimal administration, which keeps us practicing law and working claims.

— Christine Hayes Hickey, Esquire, Rubin & Levin, P.C., Indianapolis, Ind.;
Whereas I have interacted with ALQ since 2001, I truly started to experience ALQ's value about 5 years ago when I took over as the relationship manager with all of the firms’ law lists. Tom, Nancy and now Jeremy welcomed me with open arms and did everything possible to make it a seamless transition. As both a forwarder and receiver of claims over ALQ I can honestly say that there is no better value. ALQ truly knows what we do and what our capabilities are, because they ask and they listen. In addition, ALQ closely follows this industry and there is no better source of information as to current and future trends then ALQ. With ALQ it’s not just about the work, it is about the relationship!

— Harrell Pailet, Esq., Harrell Pailet & Associates, PC, Dallas, Texas;
ALQ continues to be my exclusive resource in forwarding collection claims for litigation as an agency principal, outside counsel managing litigation for trade creditors, and as independent legal counsel for a variety of business clients. Early in my career, ALQ personnel helped me understand both the mechanics of engaging local counsel – who, where and how – and the practical elements of establishing good working relationships within the Triadic System. Many years later, those relationships are still valuable elements of my practice. The friendly, efficient and proactive service Tom Hamilton and the ALQ staff provide make my work easier, and my work product more effective for my clients. ALQ is the dominant competitor in its market space for very good reasons.
— D. Park Smith, Law Office of D. Park Smith, Hunt, Texas;

— David De Blasio, Harrington Anderson & DeBlasio ;
Thank you Tom and Staff, I was introduced to American Lawyers Quarterly in 1995, as a professional collection agency in Pompano Beach, Florida we began placing files our clients elected to file suit on in 1996. Over the years other 'Books' have tried to solicit our business and I will admit we have tried them and always returned to ALQ, remember, the grass is not always greener ... The quick attention paid to assisting us with a situation, aiding us with placing a particular file with the exact attorney, shows the level of professionalism their team portrays. In addition, I would like to thank all of the attorney's we use for their understanding of our client's demands and for providing prompt attention to all of my requests. The quality of firms who list with ALQ is one of the reasons after 18 years we still use them. The online placement via their website is second to none and streamlines our productivity when placing.

20 years ago, Beau Hays and I took a leap of faith and decided to begin a commercial practice together. One of the first things we did was to attend a CLLA meeting in Chicago. At that meeting, I had my first introduction to the ALQ list, meeting Tom and Nancy Hamilton. Upon returning to Atlanta, we signed up for the ALQ listing and have continually been in the ALQ to this day in our present firm. Through the intervening years, ALQ has been a valued partner to our business, providing referrals and introductions to new contacts and sources of revenue.

Supporting all of this is their service department, second to none, making ALQ number one in our industry.

— William A. Rinehart, Attorney, Rinehart, Scaffidi & Mathews, Milwaukee, Wis.;
My experience with the ALQ list started in the late ‘60s when I worked for Irving Brandwein a collection attorney and his wife with an office on lower Broadway while attending NYU. It was normal for the office to have papers everywhere, like most any office at the time. One afternoon, I arrived after class to one of the cleanest offices ever, no papers and files in sight, everything put away right where it should be. The place had been cleaned to where it shined. I asked my boss what the deal was and he informed me that he expected a visit that day from Harry Benson Meyers, the representative of a very prestigious law list. To an inexperienced kid like me (21 years old at the time), I did not understand the role of a law list in the collection industry. After Mr. Meyers had left, I learned that the ALQ was an extremely important part of the industry that only listed premier law firms. If Mr. Brandwein was around today, he would still hold the same opinion as he did in 1968, and that I myself have come to share as well. The ALQ list is a vital part where business referrals and customer service is concerned.
Although almost 50 years have passed since my first introduction to ALQ, my opinion of them has not changed. The people there continue in the traditions of Harry Benson Meyers, which is why I knew when I started my own law firm, I had to do everything I could to be listed on ALQ. While it took me 6 years to make it happen, I have been a proud member since 1980.

— Wang Yanxiang, Attorney at Law, Guangdong Shentiancheng Law Firm, Shenzhen, China;
Our firm has been an ALQ subscriber continually since 1969. At that time, there was a limit to the number of firms in a single city, but since they were having service problems with a Columbus firm, and since they have always looked out for the interests of forwarders and creditors first, ALQ added us. We have had a close professional relationship in the ensuing 45 years. We are proud of our association with ALQ.
— Frederick M. Luper, Attorney, Luper Neidenthal & Logan LPA, Columbus, Ohio;
As someone who has been in in the industry for a relatively short time in comparison with my peers and competitors, I sometimes feel like the odd man out.

I so appreciate their honesty in all my dealings that it makes it a pleasure to do business with them.
— Meg Scotty, President, Brennan & Clark, Ltd., Villa Park, Ill.;
I became aware of the triadic system and the ALQ when I was employed as a forwarder in a commercial collection agency. As a commercial forwarder, I sent claims to lawyers to be bonded over the ALQ and several other law lists. The ALQ stood out because of the knowledge of the industry that Tom Hamilton and staff possessed, the professionalism of their organization and the quality of law firms listed on the ALQ. In 1996 I was first licensed to practice law and definitely wanted to be listed in ALQ. Tom Hamilton graciously accepted our request for a listing of Philip D. Collins & Associates, P.C. In addition to playing a very important part in my transition from forwarder to receiver, the ALQ has been a consistent source of commercial business over the many years that followed. I am very thankful to Tom, Jeremy and the entire ALQ staff for their help and look forward to continuing our relationship with ALQ.

— Tony Terry, President, CRF Solutions, Simi Valley, Calif.;
Due to a recent change, we decided to look at other options relative to placing and bonding our commercial accounts. We wanted to be sure that the attorneys we used were reputable, that we receive excellent customer service, and that placing accounts would be easy and efficient. After doing some research, it was clear that the ALQ was the direction in which to proceed. We received nothing but positive feedback about the ALQ from the law firms that we presently utilize. We also found that their website was very easy to use and had added features that would benefit our company. We are extremely pleased with the communication and customer service that the ALQ provides and look forward to working with them for all our future commercial collections.

A single phone call or email and we've always gotten a quick response and recommendation for reliable representation.

Thanks to Tom, Nancy and the entire staff for the great work that you do for us.
— Walt Lockhart, Chief Operating Officer, STA International, Westbury, N.Y.;
I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for always being there for us. TGA has been using ALQ for at least 20 years or more and you have never let us down. After a recent meeting with our legal department and those who forward claims to our network attorneys I heard nothing but accolades about ALQ. Donna Owen mentioned that if she ever has an issue Judy Taylor is always there and responds with 24 hours or less and we truly appreciate that! Others on my staff told me that Jeremy Brown is always on the spot when we need him to help us find counsel in a remote area or if we just need a new lawyer to handle a claim in a particular location. Naturally, Kevin and I always appreciate Tom and Nancy not only when we need coverage on a national or international basis, but we also enjoy your company socially at the various trade shows and conferences. Keep up the good work ALQ!!!!

Tom and the entire staff at the ALQ are always available and willing to assist. Not once in six years has the ALQ been anything but exemplary! If any of my colleagues were to ask for a reference, I would tell them to contact the ALQ.
— Tim Grimes, Legal Director, Randall & Richards, Inc., Tucson, Ariz.;
ALQ is a key partner to our agency when it comes to legal forwarding. If we need a new attorney for a new area or a replacement law firm, we call ALQ for a personal referral. We have found that the attorneys referred to us by ALQ have already been vetted and are proven performers in our industry who understand our business and provide service/updates on a regular basis. If we have a problem with a particular attorney, ALQ is more than happy to investigate and find a solution to the problem at hand. The bonding program through ALQ offers a $3.5 million dollar bond which gives both our agency and our creditors peace of mind when it comes to referring their work out to a national network of attorneys. We have won new business because of this bonding insurance, which tells you how important it is to many creditors. Finally, ALQ also has a great Service department in Cleveland to field any questions or issues that may arise in connection with a file placed with one of their listees. This department answers questions and inquiries from both forwarders and receivers, and it is in their best interest as well as their desire to be sure that the working relationships between forwarder and receiver are strong, long-term and problem-free.
— Lee VandenHeuvel, Ross, Stuart & Dawson Inc., Auburn Hills, Mich.;
I've been listed with ALQ since I started my collection practice over 15 years ago and it's been one of the most valuable relationships I've had.

— Stephen A. Bernheim, Attorney at Law, Edmonds, Wash.;
What a wonderful tool their newsletter is for keeping abreast of what's going on.

— Martin Goldman, Law Offices of Martin F. Goldman, Encino, Calif.;
Our law firm of twenty-seven attorneys plus support staff has been a listee of ALQ since our firm began in 1937, when our firm's founder, Marvin Kohner, was a sole practitioner. We can vouch for ALQ's attention to selecting qualified listees. Indeed, when we require the assistance of counsel outside the State of Wisconsin, U.S. District Court, or U.S. Bankruptcy Court geographic practice areas, we regularly consult the American Lawyers Quarterly Directory of Collection and Bankruptcy Law Firms. We consider Tom and Nancy Hamilton and the ALQ staff as an important resource.
— Christopher C. Kailas, Kohner, Mann & Kailas, S.C., Milwaukee;
I have used Tom Hamilton's ALQ lawyer referral service for many years. It has always provided me with valuable information and helped establish quality business relationships. Not too long ago one of those relationships became problematic. It was at that time that both my client and I were thankful we had the protection of the ALQ's Bond program and the personal service and attention that Tom provided. The ALQ's Bond program paid the claims, provided us with security and peace of mind, protected our financial resources and preserved and enhanced our client relationship. I am grateful that Tom and the ALQ were there when we needed them.
— Keith Weiner, Keith D. Weiner & Associates, Co., L.P.A., Cleveland;
ALQ has been an institution in the industry for the past 40+ years. The principals, Tom and Nancy Hamilton, are recognized as two of the industry leaders – both in terms of knowledge and service as well as integrity and professionalism. They have always been candid and forthright leaving me, as a customer, very assured of excellent service. In those rare instances where we have needed their support with local counsel they have been more than responsive. In summary…exceptional service, exceptional people.
— Steve Wolff, McCarthy, Burgess & Wolff, Cleveland;
ALQ has provided exceptional service to our agency since we shifted our focus towards the legal collection market. They are in touch with the firms and agencies needs and do a thorough evaluation before any recommendation. The screening process ALQ employs cuts down on the interview process and ensures the agency is provided with a list of potential firms that fits their needs. ALQ provides excellent customer service and experience… the staff is always accessible and welcoming. You can always trust the folks at ALQ will treat the relationship with the utmost importance and care.
— Noubar Assadourian, JD Vice President - Operations, American Recovery Service Incorporated, Thousand Oaks, Calif.;
I have been the supervisor of legal forwarding for Johnson, Morgan & White for the past 4 years. At the start of my position, the ALQ staff was extremely helpful with both forwarding out cases and recommending attorneys in new areas. In the few issues our agency has had with listees, Tom and his staff have been extremely pro-active in seeking and obtaining resolution. We also forward numerous claims internationally and the recommendations of the ALQ staff, even in remote parts of the world, have been excellent. ALQ has always provided us with quick, great service and I would highly recommend ALQ to any forwarders and attorneys.
— Stacy Finkelstein, Supervisor of Legal Forwarding, Johnson, Morgan & White, Boca Raton, Fla.;

Jeremy from ALQ has always been an instrumental part of my business. He has a great attitude and is always introducing me to new clients. Without ALQ, I would not be where I am today.
— Rudy Gaba, Jr., Attorney, Gaba Law Corporation, Laguna Hills, California;
Over the many years we’ve had a relationship with ALQ, they’ve demonstrated a pro-active approach to introducing us to forwarders of all stripes. This isn’t a mere “introduction” in a casual sense. They’ve gone out of their way to ensure they have a full understanding of our firm's strengths and in that way they’re capable of presenting an accurate picture of how we can assist forwarders. When we have a claim to forward, we know we can always turn to ALQ to gain the best possible researched and qualified representation out of our jurisdiction. And when it comes to listed counsel, we have the comfort of knowing ALQ carries the best possible bonding for the sake of our protection. In addition, we continually utilize ALQ’s website for its many resources. Their most valuable assets are the incredible people who work for ALQ. This crew is 100 percent committed to providing all of us in this industry with the highest standard of service – “EXCELLENCE” is the word that comes to mind.
— David Greenberg, Legal Liaison, Law Offices of Gary A. Bemis, Riverside, California;
We have been with the ALQ for about five years now and are very pleased with their professionalism and the success we have had with their law list.

— David M. Roche, Melton Norcross & Associates, LLC, Frisco, Texas

The assistance of ALQ has been invaluable and we look forward to a long-term working relationship with ALQ.

We feel fortunate to have them as a trusted partner and ally with our legal forwarding and network.
— Roger Blain, TaxServ LLC, McLean, Virginia;
We were introduced to American Lawyers Quarterly in 1995. We are a professional collection agency in Pompano Beach, Florida and began placing files our clients elected to file suit on in 1996. Over the years other “Books” have tried to solicit our business and I will admit we have tried them and always returned to ALQ. The grass is not always greener. The quick attention paid to assisting us with a situation, aiding us with placing a particular file with the exact attorney, shows the level of professionalism their team portrays. In addition, the quality of firms who list with ALQ is one of the reasons after 18 years we still use them. The on-line placement via their web-site is second to none and streamlines our productivity when placing.
— Merri Chris, Office Manager, Voss & Klein LLC, Pompano Beach, Florida;
They give each day their usual 110 per cent, with all the synergy and paradigm shifts that such an event calls for. They bring on their A Game, gather up all that low hanging fruit, and at the end of the day they push the envelope, take it to the next level, hit the ground running, are always proactive, manage our expectations, make friends with the 800 pound gorilla, stop putting lipstick on that pig, expand our bandwith, realize it is what it is, step up to the plate, raise the bar, and remember most of all that the scenery only changes if you are the lead dog. We know how busy they are, but they always work for our best interests, always doing what they do best, which is thinking outside the box, bringing lots of value to the table. And that pretty much sums up the ALQ.
— Gary Hutchinson, Hutchinson Warren & Associates, Romeo, Michigan;
Our firm has been using ALQ for almost 10 years and there is a reason they are our first source when we need a referral. Not only have we found bright and professional attorneys through their List but we have found ALQ’s administrative staff to be a pleasure to work with.

ALQ has been instrumental in the growth of my Firm.

— Brian M. Cloud, Esquire, Cloud & Willis, LLC, Birmingham, Alabama ;

— Sid Burnstein, Managing Director, Abraham, Burnstein & Cohen Inc., Indian Rocks Beach, Florida;
The thought of maintaining a steady referral stream was the most terrifying aspect of developing my own practice. Thankfully, I stumbled upon ALQ within the first year of going solo. The consistent support and service provided by ALQ has delivered results, both financially and psychologically. During these difficult economic times, Jeremy has come through, time and again, with quality referrals at critically important times for the stability of my firm. I can honestly say that I can rest a little easier knowing I have ALQ actively promoting my office to reputable industry forwarders. ALQ continues to be a vital component for the ongoing success of my office. Words cannot express how grateful I am to have them in my corner!
— Caleb J. Langsdale, Langsdale Law Firm P.C., Las Vegas, Nevada ;

After a long day of traveling to conferences I attend across the country, I always see Tom and Nancy or Jeremy smiling at me from across the room at the opening cocktail reception. It is so refreshing to have a friend after the hustle and bustle of the airport.

Through ALQ I not only have developed new clients, but have also made new friends.

Due to a recent change, we decided to look at other options relative to placing and bonding our commercial accounts. We wanted to be sure that the attorneys we used were reputable, that we receive excellent customer service, and that placing accounts would be easy and efficient. After doing some research, it was clear that the ALQ was the direction in which to proceed. We received nothing but positive feedback about the ALQ from the law firms that we presently utilize.

As a thirty year collection attorney, the ALQ List was one of THE most valuable tools to not only grow my business, but to enhance my firm's reputation. The quality of their service, and employees, is unparalled. The relationships they've built within the commercial and retail collection sectors are tremendously strong, which, in turn, enhances the opportunity to gain new clients.

The ALQ on-line presence, including The Eagle, provides extremely useful industry-specific services and information

San Diego Credit Association has utilized the services of ALQ for many decades. This association began operating in 1896 and ALQ in 1899. I believe that our history together is one of the longest relationships that exists in the commercial collection industry. ALQ not only bonds the attorneys that we select for litigation on claims, the staff is an excellent source for references to forwarding attorneys. If we receive a claim in an unusual area and we do not know an attorney in that geographical area, we can count on ALQ to introduce us to the right attorney who is qualified to handle our claim. Tom or a staff member will actually contact the attorney, discuss our claim to make sure that the attorney is a good match and then the introduction is made. We just could not find a bonded attorney on our own without the assistance of ALQ. Need some help with a claim? It's easy ... call ALQ. We have been 100 percent satisfied with ALQ's service and courtesy. Thank you to ALQ and its staff for your friendship and for your assistance.

— Brian Haley, legal coordinator, Windham Professionals, Inc., Salem, N.H.;
For over thirty years, ALQ has been my primary resource for selecting local litigation counsel in my collection practice. ALQ selects quality lawyers and firms, monitors their performance and always supports my (rarely needed) requests for service assistance. As a relatively small-volume forwarder, I appreciate that ALQ staff gives my business the same attention and value as claims from large agencies. As we say in Texas, if it ain't broke, don't fix it...and I'll keep ALQ's web search link among my most trusted professional tools.

ALQ first listed our office nearly 30 years ago. We quickly came to recognize that ALQ is a leader in the industry and that our listing and relationship are of tremendous value. ALQ coached us in procedures, innovations, and effective marketing. We grew from a handful of claims to the volume we enjoy today. Our investment in a listing has truly paid off. Not content to publish a valuable directory, ALQ takes an active interest in bringing business to our door. I appreciate doing business with ALQ because they share my interest in responsive communication, effective marketing, and improving industry professionalism.

I first met Tom Hamilton and the ALQ team when I had my agency in Tokyo for 12 years. During that time, I had many claims across the US in which Tom directed me to the attorneys in the ALQ network who service us greatly . I have always found the warmth, customer care, and professionalism of the ALQ team to be outstanding; and look forward to many more years of working together.

In my past 12 years here at Rauch Milliken International, I have received A+ service and professionalism from the staff of ALQ. The website is a fast and convenient aid in finding attorneys to help us in our collection matters. Our files are delivered electronically and acknowledged by ALQ within minutes of sending. Tom and his staff have always been right there by our side to handle any issues that we may have encountered. I would highly recommend ALQ to anyone needing assistance in this field.

Hunter Warfield has been using ALQ to assist in building our attorney and vendor network for several years. We have not only been pleased, but impressed with the level of service that they provide.

On behalf of Hunter Warfield and its clients, we would like to thank you and your staff for the impeccable level of service provided that is so important to us.

It would be a gross understatement to say that I am very grateful for your recommendation of a fellow ALQ listee to assist me by preparing a brief for trial counsel for defense of an out-of-state judgment, forwarded to me for enforcement by garnishing the PA bank account of a multi-billion dollar company. That attorney rose to the occasion, on very short notice, and produced a wonderful product that is being filed, on time, at this moment. Where would I be without the American Lawyers Quarterly, and Tom and Nancy Hamilton?
— Drew Salaman, Esquire, Salaman Grayson, P.C., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania;
I really must thank you for your support and kindness over the many years. Without people like you, I do not believe I would have achieved the professional attributes which enable me to support my family.
