Practice Areas - Judgment Defense

A creditor is able to obtain much more collection power if they have obtained a judgment against you.  The effects of a judgment range include garnishment of bank accounts, liens on property, and seizing of property with a writ of execution.  Creditors may employ other strategies such as post judgment discovery, in which the judgment creditor sends you questions regarding your assets or forces you into a deposition.  The questions that are asked are required to be answered under oath, and if you fail to answer them correctly or at all, then you may be held in contempt of court.

Judgments should not be ignored.  They can last for 10 years and have the possibility of being renewed for an indefinite period.  Your credit score will be jeopardized as a result of the judgment.  To assume that the creditor cannot collect from you is incorrect.  If you have a judgment against you for a debt, let us examine your situation.  We have assisted thousands of consumers who have incurred debts, and many of them have had judgments as well.
