An overview of the collections process

  1. Receipt and review of your files
  2. Investigation — Our experienced staff of paralegals conducts in-house investigation to locate and identify the parties to be named in a collection lawsuit.  Once the investigation is completed, a collection lawsuit is prepared and promptly sent off to the court.
  3. Lawsuit — Once a lawsuit is filed, attorney Katz moves quickly to obtain a judgment in your favor. Although rare, if trial becomes necessary, he vigorously prosecutes your claim and fights for your right to receive an award for the unpaid debt.
  4. Judgment — As soon as the judgment is entered, judgment enforcement action begins.  Once the judgment is entered, liens are promptly filed and recorded against the debtor’s real estate.  Further, if employment information is known, we take immediate steps to file wage garnishments to secure payment of the judgment.  Bank levies will be served which allow us to seized money from the debtors’ bank accounts.  If we cannot locate a debtor’s place of employment, we can force the debtor to appear in court for a post-judgment debtor examination so that we can question them about their finances and assets.
  5. Enforcement — If the judgment debtor fails to appear for their judgment debtor examination, we will have a bench warrant issued for the judgment debtor which can result in the judgment debtor being arrested and hailed into court where they will be required to submit to the examination proceedings.
