About Us

American Financial Management, Inc. (AFM) is one of the world's leading international debt collection firms. We are a third-generation family business location in Chicago. We provide superior client service and, through AFM's Attorney Intervention Collection Program, expedite recovery of your receivables from a time and dollar perspective. From the first day that we receive an account for collection, an in-house AFM Attorney will directly contact your insured from an on-site law office to obtain immediate payment. Our lawyers do not litigate. Rather, our attorneys solely focus on collection and account resolution, on a contingency fee basis. If we do not collect the monies owed to you, then we do not earn a fee.

Here is an overview of why our program generates a 25% higher net recovery rate:
• AFM Attorney directly handles your account from Day 1
• Insured contacted from a law office
• Stronger leverage. More payments. Faster resolution.
• Enhanced professionalism
• Thorough investigative efforts
• NO Collection = NO Fees
• 24/7 Online Reporting
• Comprehensive analysis when legal action must be considered
• Litigation Support through AFM's Attorney Network

In short, we provide attorney service at collection agency rates. In addition to recovering the monies owed to your organization, we improve the status of your receivable. When appropriate, at no cost, we draft settlement agreements that include personal guarantees, promissory notes, and/or agreed judgments upon default. We also complete thorough investigations to locate the obligor and learn about their payment capabilities, which will help you make an informed decision when responding to a settlement offer or when deciding whether to forward a claim to local counsel for possible legal action.

Based on your requirements, desires and goals, we completely customize our Attorney Intervention Collection Program for you. We are a client-focused organization. Our mission is to go above and beyond to provide a 'customer-thrill' or 'wow' experience. We handle each claim with the utmost care, in a professional and comprehensive manner, while keeping your most important needs central throughout our collection pursuit. We are results driven. We are a client-focused organization. Let us create a ‘wow’ experience for you by collecting the uncollectible!
