Foreign Judgment – Don’t Let Your Foreign Judgment Just Gather Dust

Just because foreign judgments aren’t automatically domesticated in Massachusetts doesn’t mean your judgment must gather dust on a shelf somewhere out of state! While the process is more complicated here than in most other states, Attorney Alan M. Cohen can help you turn that foreign judgment into one that can be collected upon here in Massachusetts.

At the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC, we know how to get our clients their owed funds, wherever they may be located. If you have a judgment against a debtor with assets in Massachusetts, we can  turn your out-of-state judgment into one that can be enforced swiftly to get those assets into your hands.

Not Just Domestication — Enforcement, Too

The key to making a foreign judgment domestication work is to not stop short at domestication itself. Many attorneys say they can turn a foreign judgment into one that works in Massachusetts, but if you don’t choose your attorney wisely, that may be all that you get. A judgment on paper won’t get you very far!

Attorney Alan M. Cohen goes beyond domestication to enforcement. Using ethical yet aggressive tactics, Attorney Cohen uses every appropriate legal strategy to find out what your debtor has for assets, preparing prejudgment documentation and paperwork to ensure that once he commences suit to domesticate judgment, collection activity occurs simultaneously to try to help get you your money.

Our law offices work hard to investigate the situation, seek to attach all assets including wages, bank accounts, and real estate, and explore other legal avenues if needed, such as complaints on judgments or receivership. Whatever it takes to ensure that your debtor pays up, we are here to try to secure the outcome you desire.

Working For You, Wherever You Are

Whether you are near Massachusetts or located far away, the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC can handle the court process for you, appearing as your representation so that you do not have to travel, unless required by deposition or to trial. We keep you informed and updated every step of the way, as your eyes, ears, and feet on the ground here in Massachusetts.
