We frequently work with other attorneys and their clients to collect judgments. This usually happens when a Plaintiff’s attorney sues someone only to later discover that the defendant was uninsured. The referring attorneys are always highly skilled in areas of the law other than debt collection. They call on us for our debt collection services as they know that an uncollected judgment in their hands does not benefit their client or themselves, especially when the referring attorney obtained this judgment on a contingency basis. We are able to apply our collection skills to the judgment such as skip tracing and asset searching. When we collect on these otherwise uncollectible judgments, everyone makes money. This is just good business.
As collection attorneys, we can find debtors and their assets like no one else can. Being the aggressive lawyers we are, we liquidate defendant’s assets such as cars, boats and other assets until we reduce the judgment to cash.
Two of the cases listed in our Major Case Successes page were judgments that had been forwarded to us as “uncollectible” by others. In one of these cases, we collected $100,000 within the first 60 days that we received it. The judgment had languished in another attorney’s office for four years before it came to us.
We have the fire power that no other collection law firm in Michigan has.
The credit for reducing these large judgments to cash lies in having two full time certified public accountants on staff. These team members work with our attorneys to uncover and identify assets frequently hidden by debtors trying to avoid paying our clients. Our CPA staff members give us and our clients an incredible edge to reduce judgments to cash that other law firms would not be able to do.
If you are an attorney that has obtained a judgment on behalf of your client and you do not know how to collect on it, call or email Gary Nitzkin to discuss the collection options that exist to reduce your client’s judgment to cash.
We have developed a program that encourages attorneys to forward judgments to us for collection. For more information about this program, please call or email Gary Nitzkin
