Debtors will try any way they possibly can to retain  higher valued items and shield those assets from a possible litigation.

You may have heard the words “attachments” and “garnishments” thrown around. The Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC knows when to effectively use attachments and when wage garnishments are appropriate and likely effective. They know how to use them to get aid in your debt recovery efforts.

The Anatomy of Attachments

One of the biggest challenges in collecting on debt is locating and freezing assets. The experienced debt recovery attorneys at the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC work their hardest to persuade courts to enter orders attaching debtor’s assets. The use of pre-judgment attachments can ensure that the debtor does not dispose of or hide their assets to frustrate the collection of the judgment that you win.

The experienced and relentless debt recovery attorneys at the Law Offices of Alan M.

They aggressively and ethically use all pre- and post-judgment attachments whether involved in pre-judgment collection or post judgment collection, including ex parte attachments, to get you paid.

The How’s and Why’s of Garnishments

While attachments deal with the property under the debtor’s direct purview, wage garnishments target a different aspect of a person’s wealth. Wage garnishments pertain to wealth or income sources paid to the debtor by a third party, usually their employer. Wage garnishments can be  an effective method of post-judgment collection  when it appears that the individual debtor in question does not have the liquid assets available to pay off the outstanding balance, but l have a source of attachable non-exempt income. The Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC have successfully used wage garnishments over our 45 years of collective experience to help their  clients get paid as much as possible.
