Who Will Be More Persistent, You or Your Debtor?

Recently, we put together a post talking about how persistence and an airplane hangar helped us get a judgment taken care of for one of our clients. If you haven't read that post, we invite you to take a look. It demonstrates how Judgment Collectors can utilize a variety of tools to find debtor assets. For this post, however, we want to talk more about being persistent. It certainly would be nice if debtors met their obligations in a timely and responsible manner. It would be nice if push never came to shove in the judgment collection arena. But unfortunately, this is not the case. More often than not, the determining factor in getting a j...

Strategies for Minimizing and Avoiding Judgments

Having to go to court is no fun. As a business owner or manager, civil litigation is not on your list of things to do. You would rather concentrate your company's efforts on serving your customers.

How Persistence and an Airplane Hangar Got Results

Rarely do we get results without putting in significant effort. Effort is part of the judgment collection game. But sometimes, effort alone is not enough. Some cases require a lot of persistence along with a bit of good fortune. Such was the case on a judgment we recently got action on. The judgment had not seen any activity in quite a while. Before describing this case, we want to address the fact that a lack of action is not sufficient reason to give up. In fact, this is exactly what some debtors want their creditors to do. They play the waiting game in hopes that a creditor will get tired of pursuing the judgment and simply walk away. ...

The Best Strategies for Judgment Collection Vary by Case
