Domesticating and Collecting Upon Out of State Judgments in Massachusetts

Even if you are not from Massachusetts, the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC can help you to domesticate and collect upon any out of state judgments you may have.

The Domestication Process

In Massachusetts, foreign judgment creditors have to have their judgments domesticated before they can be enforced locally. While that may sound complicated at first glance, what it means is that Attorney Cohen first obtains that Massachusetts judgment by filing suit and then using any legal remedies required to try to collect the debt.

Our law firm is known for its effective, quick investigation of any debt situation, to determine what legal actions work best, and what attachments to seek to seize assets like bank accounts and real estate so you can get paid on your judgment debt.

Collecting on the Judgment

With the Massachusetts judgment in hand, you are one step closer to collecting on that money owed. Attorney Alan M. Cohen knows that the process does not stop with the judgment. Collection often requires more legal work, as debtors do not usually want to pay up, even after a judgment has been entered.

Our law offices use various tactics to collect on the judgment once it has been obtained. We follow every path to investigate any assets your debtor may have hidden, ensuring that we are able to seek to obtain a lien or to attempt to seize any property we discover post-judgment. You can rest assured that the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC keeps going until every asset has been discovered and your debt has been collected.
