In all legal cases, securing a favorable judgment is one thing, enforcing that order is another. However, when it comes to debt collection in Massachusetts, this gap is felt quite considerably.

At the Law Offices of Alan M. Cohen LLC we ensure that as we pursue the lawsuit, we devise actionable plans to collect the judgment at the end of the battle. Whether it is a foreign judgment or a Massachusetts judgment, our relentless attorneys are in the fight until you receive your payment in full or no one can collect from your debtor.  Our Experienced Collections Attorneys know How to Enforce Foreign Judgment in Massachusetts

Enforcing foreign judgments in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts requires the judgment creditor to file a new lawsuit.

Our attorneys have a combined experience of over four decades of experience in successfully domesticating foreign judgments in Massachusetts by filing lawsuits and obtaining favorable orders from the respective courts.
