Frequently asked questions
What is NJIC?
National Judgment Investment Corp., is a national debt recovery firm. NJIC collects monies due commercial creditors who are owed by commercial debtors. Unlike "traditional collection agencies", NJIC uses experienced collectors who are collection attorneys, paralegals and trained business professionals. Based upon NJIC's extensive lawyer network, NJIC can pursue debtors anywhere in the world. This allows NJIC to handle a creditor's claim from initial placement through post judgment recovery.
What are NJIC's Fees?
NJIC's fees on straight collections are always contingent upon the recovery of any monies. If no recovery is made then there is no fee due NJIC. NJIC's straight collection fees are listed in the Fee section of this site and range from 15% to 50% depending upon the dollar amount of the claim. If litigation is required, NJIC's contingency fees are typically 35% of the amount of the recovery. Depending on the nature, age and/or size of the claim, in some situations, there may be charged a non-contingent suit fee to place the claim into litigation. This charge will only be imposed if approved by the client and NJIC.
