Often, judgment debtors are unable or unwilling to pay towards satisfaction of a court ordered judgment and to collect any money at all may require additional and technical litigation. Our firm practices exclusively in the collection of judgments and our attorneys have resolved hundreds of judgments to recovery on behalf of our bank and business clients.

Our firm’s unique model of experience blended with precision speaks for itself. Couple our legal successes alongside testimonials from actual clients and it is easy to conclude that all of our team at Angell Molony take pride in the reputation we have built and and continue to earn through Collection of Judgments.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Simply put, collecting money that is owed to our clients through a previously entered court-ordered decree. The Collection of a judgment can present a myriad of technical and legal challenges, but there are laws in South Carolina and elsewhere that provide a mechanism to do just that.

It is always best when navigating through legal waters to employ a licensed attorney who is knowledgeable and proficient in his or her practice area. We practice exclusively in the enforcement/collection of judgments and no other area of litigation. This niche sets our law firm apart from all others in the state and nationwide.

The short answer is yes, it can be very difficult to get the debtor to pay their judgment. Our firm compels payment from the debtor through the means of the laws afforded in each state to collect.

Start with gathering the facts. It is critical to determine if the debtor has viable assets before entering into the collection of the judgment. We offer asset searches before pursuing a given debtor. If the debtor has been discharged in bankruptcy or otherwise possesses no assets in which to apply towards satisfaction of the judgment, you may not want to commence enforcement of the judgment.
