The United States Constitution requires States to honor the judgments of other States as decided by their courts. This is not, however, an automatic process in Massachusetts. Foreign judgment creditors must go through a process to domesticate their judgments to enforce them in Massachusetts.

If you are a creditor from out-of-state with a debtor in Massachusetts, our law firm can help you collect your debts by obtaining a Massachusetts judgment so you don’t need to first obtain a foreign judgment. We are committed to making the debt collection process seamless through working with an experienced commercial debt collection lawyer in Massachusetts.
For more than three decades, Debt Collection Attorney Alan M. Cohen has helped businesses recover their debts through offering an aggressive approach. He has the skills and tenacity to chase down anyone liable on commercial debts in Massachusetts. Attorney Cohen saves his out-of-state business clients time and money often without the need for them to travel in state to collect their money.
Attorney Alan M. Cohen acts quickly investigating the debtor’s situation to determine what assets he or she has in Massachusetts, including any personal guarantees on the debt. He then begins to prepare prejudgment documentation to obtain ex parte attachments to seize the debtor’s bank accounts, real estate and other assets. After we obtain the allowed attachments, the sheriff will be able to serve the bank and record real estate attachments to attempt to give you security to obtain the payments you are entitled to receive.
We are committed to helping our business clients reach the front of the payment line and get paid the debts they are owed. We will not stop until we have collected the money due to you; and if we can’t, no one else can. Our aggressive, relentless, effective and ethical tactics have helped us secure many favorable outcomes for our business clients.
