Collections involve pursuing remedies for enforcing claims once they have been resolved by agreement or in court.
A court judgment once obtained is not self-enforcing. A judgment is just a piece of paper signed by a judge and filed in a court file that says A owes B $XXX. Unless the judgment debtor is an insurance company or a large corporation, steps often must be taken to enforce and collect a judgment. This means pursuing garnishment, attachment, execution on judgments and foreclosing on collateral or on judgment liens. It also often involves a great deal of digging and searching for assets, including obtaining an order requiring the debtor to appear in court and answer questions and produce documents revealing his or her assets and financial condition.
We have experience and have developed forms and procedures for doing all of these things.
