At the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC, our experienced Massachusetts collections attorneys fight tirelessly to make sure you get paid in both pre- and post-judgment collections litigation. Our commercial collections lawyers fight for you to collect your bad debt in a timely manner from delinquent debtors dragging their feet with outstanding accounts receivables. With our commitment to getting you paid in mind, our work does not end once we obtain a judgment for you. We are consistently and diligently searching for assets to seize and sell to get you paid.
Our philosophy is simple: To get you paid!! We know that winning the battle often does mean you have won the war to collect your money.
One of the many tactics we use is post-judgment collections litigation. With collections litigation, we bring new suits on your existing civil judgments, allowing us to bring in new parties and advance theories to make sure you get paid when your customer goes bad.
Collections litigation against individual defendants may include complaints regarding wage garnishments. While some post-judgment collection methods – such as bank attachments, real estate attachments, personal property attachments and temporary restraining orders – can be done without notice, wage garnishments require giving notice to the debtor.
In some cases, the debtors cooperate and agree to voluntary wage assignments. However, more often, we aggressively advance our post-judgment collection wage garnishment motions which we strongly advocate before the appropriate Massachusetts court for approval. The wage garnishment motions used by our experienced and aggressive collections attorneys in Boston, Massachusetts, request the court allows continuous garnishments to avoid the need to continue to make court appearances to keep the Massachusetts wage attachment in place.
Reach And Apply Injunctions
Another tactic used by the post-judgment collection attorneys at the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC, is commencing post-judgment collections litigation seeking reach and apply injunctions. Reach and apply injunctions prevent a third party who owes your debtor from directly paying your debtor, requiring them instead to pay you monies they owe to the debtor. Reach and apply injunctions are commonly used by the experienced aggressive collections attorneys at the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC, to attach a debtor’s interest in other companies, trusts or properties being held in other parties’ names.
If the circumstances warrant it, our experienced post-judgment Massachusetts collections attorneys fight to pierce a corporate defendant’s veil to impose individual liability on the owners. It is not an easily accomplished task in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, but it is one that we have successfully accomplished to get our clients paid.
Collections litigation can also include complaints to place a business defendant into receivership. The positive of a receivership complaint or motion is that your court-appointed receiver can review the books and records of the debtor’s business, collect their mail, deposit their checks and dissolve – or, if necessary, operate – your debtor’s business.
A drawback of a receivership complaint, however, is that the receiver is not there to collect the debt owed to you, but the debts owed to all creditors, proportionally under the Massachusetts court’s supervision.
These are just a few of the methods that the post-judgment collections litigation attorneys at the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC, use to get our clients paid. Our innovative and aggressive commercial debt collection litigation tactics can help you execute on your civil judgments and help you get paid.
