Enforcement of Judgments

From locating assets to liens and garnishment - get a thorough understanding of civil judgment enforcement.

Obtaining a judgment is only half the battle. Too often, clients accept that receipt of a judgment will be the end to the litigation and that the money will begin to flow. In practice, that is very rarely the case. Managing client expectations is paramount to the attorney-client relationship, particularly with regard to enforcing and collecting upon a judgment. By reviewing and applying applicable law and highlighting certain strategies, collection tools, and special issues, this topic will help those responsible for enforcing judgments to manage client expectations by understanding the enforcement process and the potential pitfalls that regularly hamper a party's ability to enforce a judgment and collect money owed.
