Understanding Debt

Understanding debt collection in Massachusetts requires the knowledge and experience of a Boston creditors’ rights attorney. That is where the Law Offices of Richard N. Gottlieb can help.

The basics of debt are:

  • Secured debt – meaning that there is likely some physical property, known as collateral, that the debtor has offered to secure the loan in case of default.
  • Unsecured debt – meaning there is no property put up against the balance to secure payment.

While secured loans are easier to collect than unsecured loans, both should be in writing within a formal agreement.


If you find a loan in default, or not been paid as agreed upon, you may decide to collect on that loan. A simple default letter may be all that is needed, but many times creditors need the assistance of a qualified attorney to urge the parties to agreement through legal processes that otherwise could result in conflict, mistakes and undue stress.
