Good news! Going to court to file a case and enforce collection of a debt for a principal amount below P100,000 has become cheaper, faster and less complicated.

With the establishment of the Small Claims Courts, you don't need a lawyer to file your collection cases. You can easily do it yourself. Yes, you can appear as your lawyer and secure a final decision in one day. No more debtor appeals in higher courts allowed and you can execute the judge's decision immediately.

In this one-day special seminar workshop, we will teach you how to fill up the forms and templates needed to file your case in court and we will walk you through the procedures on how you can successfully pursue and win a collection case against your abusive debtor! Be your own lawyer. Attend and empower yourself and your organization to collect debts effectively!
