Frequently Asked Questions
I have a judgment but have not been paid, can Andalman & Flynn help?
Andalman & Flynn’s collections department is very experienced in enforcing judgments through garnishments on wages, bank accounts, and other property; liens on real property; and, sheriff’s levy and sale of real property.
What is the difference between a small claim and a large claim case?
Cases with a balance due of $30,001 and greater must be filed in the Circuit Court. Additionally, a jury trial may be requested on all cases where the balance due is $15,000 or more. All jury trials are heard in the Circuit Court, and a District Court case will be transferred to Circuit Court if a jury trial is requested.

How long can I wait to file suit?
It is best to begin collection efforts as soon as possible while you still know the debtor’s location and situation, and have current information about assets and employment. The longer you wait to collect on your accounts, the less likely your collection efforts will succeed. If, however, you have older accounts that you have interested in pursuing, please contact our Collections Department to discuss your options.
