Who We Are

FHC is dedicated to solving the complex issues surrounding your account receivable needs.




We understand that not all accounts can be pursued in the same manner. In many instances, your debtors are still your clients and you want to keep it that way. That is why before we begin working on any of your accounts we complete a thorough analysis of your needs and we implement a structured recovery plan designed specifically for each of our clients. 


Our management and staff are continually trained on the latest regulatory and statutory changes affecting debt collections. We maintain active and participatory memberships with all of the relevant trade organizations and we provide regular training sessions for our collections staff. Our work environment, training and compensation structure has led FHC to be an industry leader in staff retention rates and in minimizing complaints.
