Post-Judgment

We’re with you all the way.

In many cases, winning the collections judgment in court isn’t the end of the story. If an account holder is willing to avoid making payments on a debt to the point of losing a lawsuit over it, they’re not likely to pay, even with a court-ordered judgment. Effective post-judgment enforcement requires knowledge, shrewdness and tenacity. At Andalman & Flynn, we apply our decades of collections experience and legal prowess to obtain the monies that are owed to you.

Where business professionals come to get paid.

Our experienced attorneys reduce money judgments to cash through various writs, including:

  • Garnishments: A court order that requires the debtor’s employer to divert a portion of his or her paycheck to the creditor until the debt is fulfilled.
  • Liens: In many states, a judgment entered automatically creates a lien on any real property the debtor may own in the county where the judgment was obtained.
  • Oral examinations under oath: The defendant must appear in court and respond to questions about his or her finances and the property that’s being sought to garnish.
  • Levy and seizure of real property and all other types of property and licenses: This court order allows a court-appointed officer to seize property to fulfill a judgment. Any property the account owner holds can be seized; it does not have to be related to the debt.
  • Sheriff sales of real estate and personal property: These judicial foreclosures (or executions) on real property can be used to satisfy a money judgment.
