Most of our clients are business owner who have outstanding receivables or whose customers have failed to live up to their side of the agreement. In a collections case, our job is to find the best solution for your case. We fully understand that litigation is a very expensive process, so when it comes to collections we take the approach of finding the most cost-effective way to resolve your case. We are prepared to handle your case from start to finish – from filing of a lawsuit to enforcement of your judgment. This means that if you already have a judgment, but have not collected any money, call our office, we will be happy to evaluate your judgment collection case.
If you are collecting a judgment, you need to make sure it is properly perfected in the State of Florida, which includes placing liens on personal and real property of the debtor. You may be able to collect the judgment in several ways. For example garnishment of the debtor’s bank account, a deposition in aid of execution, or a payment plan with the debtor.

Another example could be a case where our client’s bank account was garnished, as a result of a judgment against them. We help the client evaluate his or her options, and see if there are any defenses. Sometimes a claim of exemption can be filed and the Judge may grant it.
