Collections involves the legal process of turning a claim or judgment into “cash in hand.” The fact that a judgment has been signed by the judge does not guarantee that the defendant will actually pay the judgment. The law of collections/enforcement of judgments involves the utilization of various procedures of the courts and local sheriff’s offices to locate and seize the assets of the defendants against whom the judgment was rendered. Those assets are sold and the proceeds applied to satisfy the judgment. The procedures include a variety of procedures including levies, debtor’s examinations, third party charging orders, judgment liens on real and personal property and wage garnishments. DesJardins & Panitz LLP has collected monies in situations when previous lawyers had long since given up trying.
