What We Do And How We Do It

some of the moneyJudgment Enforcement & Judgment Recovery: You sued and won a judgment, and the debtor will not pay voluntarily; A Judgment Collection Attorney is what you need. As described above, we first utilize our access to the same high-end investigative resources used by financial institutions and law enforcement, which we use to locate even the most difficult-to-locate debtors and debtor assets, as well as our connections with some of the best financial investigators in the business.Once the debtor and the debtors assets have been located, we aggressively employ our judgment enforcement methods, using every legal means available to attach/seize/garnish those assets to enforce your judgment collection.  Click here to see more about our Judgment collection services in CaliforniaWe generally do this without any notification to the debtor, so the debtor cannot move or transfer the assets before we attach them.In cases where debtors move or transfer assets, or take other evasive actions such as hide behind corporations, declare fraudulent bankruptcies, or set up other asset protection structures, we implement all the required procedures to pierce through and counteract these attempts at protection of debtor assets.Pre-judgment Collections & Remedies: The Evanns Collection Firm also assists clients in the prejudgment collections process on outstanding receivables such as promissory notes, past due invoices, and other defaulted debts. We provide our collection services from the demand letter stage to the trial stage and all the way through to the enforcement of judgment stage, always aiming to save you time and money by collecting as much of your debt as possible without resorting to costly and time-consuming litigation. Of course, if we ultimately do need to get a judgment in a case, we are more than happy to do it, and then enforce.

Our Promise To You

In Attorney, Richard Evanns’, own words:  ”I was a small business owner prior to being an attorney, and understand that when you have already been stiffed out of money, and already paid your lawyers  to get a judgment, you should not have pay yet more lawyers just to collect. All too often, the amount of justice one gets is a function of the amount of money one puts out to get it.” “At my law firm, we do not believe in ‘justice-by-the hour.’ We make every effort to handle all of our matters for NO COST UP FRONT for our clients. While every case is different and different types of cases require different arrangements, we are generally of the belief that we should not get paid until you have gotten paid.

So whether you are an individual person with one judgment against your ex-landlord, a business with a debt portfolio, or anything in between- if you call my firm, you will talk to a real person (most likely to me, the head attorney) who will evaluate your case and do a preliminary asset search on your debtor – and you will get a well thought-out  and comprehensive opinion regarding legal aspects of the case, and on the best course of action given the situation.”
