General info

The American Lawyers Quarterly is an international directory of law firms which specialize in collections, creditors' rights and bankruptcy.

The ALQ directory has been the definitive source for attorney representation in the collection industry since 1899 (over 116 years). Collections are generally handled by our listed counsel on a contingent fee basis.

The directory is published annually, with supplemental updates issued quarterly. However, the most up-to-date information on listed and bonded attorneys, including details not included in the printed version of ALQ, can always be found on our website at

The website also provides the following resources:

* Fully-functioning electronic Forwarding Program with automatic Bonding notification

* Summary of Collection Laws – both U.S. and International
* Operative Guides
* Bankruptcy Court & Secretary of State information
* Industry Resources
* Calendar of Industry Events
* Glossary of Legal Collection Terms
* Links to Industry-related Websites

Forwarders who wish to place legal matters with ALQ listed law firms can register on the site for access to the industry-leading ALQ Forwarding Program. This service is free of charge to members of Commercial Collection Agencies of America.

ALQ also publishes a bi-weekly newsletter, The Eagle, which includes timely articles on industry-related topics. If you would like to subscribe, or submit articles for publication, contact us at
