Congratulations on winning your case.
You went to court, presented your case and the judge ruled in your favor, or you possibly obtained a default judgment. Now you hold a Florida judgment and want to collect your money.
It has been estimated that roughly 80% of judgments go uncollected. In fact, Florida law protects debtors with several exemptions and protections such as homestead, head of household, tenancy by the entirety, qualified retirement plans, and many more.
Many plaintiffs are surprised to learn that the court cannot force the debtor to pay. Unless the debtor voluntarily pays, you will need to use various methods to try to collect upon the judgment.
The court may provide you with the proper forms, but that is about it since the court cannot give legal advice.
I am a licensed Florida attorney who specializes in Florida judgment collection. I am also a litigator who will fight to try to get you paid. I normally take cases on a contingency basis where my firm pays all expenses upfront.
Instead of hiring a debt collection agency, why not hire a real attorney who knows exactly how to pursue a judgment? With years of experience, I can save you the time and headache of trying to handle collection yourself.
Not only do I have access to databases for asset searches, bank searches, and skip tracing, but I can have the court force the debtor to disclose their assets.
I use many ways to collect upon judgments such as garnishing bank and brokerage accounts, garnishing wages and commissions, finding hidden assets, obtaining charging orders, having real estate and personal property sold, and more. I can also reverse fraudulent transfers if the debtor tried to hide assets to avoid paying the judgment.
And most of the time, you will not have any contact with the debtor.
Keep in mind that not all debts are collectible. Some debtors truly have little to no assets.
If I am unable to collect, you will not have to pay anything under any contingency agreement. Fill out the online questionnaire or give me a call today to evaluate your case.
My goal is to turn your paper judgment into real money.
