Richard O. Evanns, In His Own Words



I graduated from U.C. Santa Barbara with a B.A. in philosophy and obtained my law degree from the U.C. Davis School of Law. Before enrolling in law school, I spent time in the business world working for a major mortgage company, and a major health insurance company. After law school I played poker professionally, and travelled the States and the world doing this. This was an invaluable experience in understanding cost benefit analysis of investing money to make money, risks vs. rewards, as well as the mindsets of people whose money is in jeopardy. I am now a collection attorney, who fights for your judgment.

Upon deciding to settle down, I put my education to use and went to work as a paralegal, handling matters in intellectual property litigation, contract litigation, and personal injury cases. I started my own collection business in 2009, which was successful in enforcing quite a few judgments, from small claims judgments against fly-by-night unlicensed contractors and used-car lots to much larger judgments against major insurance firms, real estate tycoons, and even a billionaire Senatorial Candidate. Between 2009 and 2011 my judgment collection company, under my direction, satisfied hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of debt on behalf of its creditors. As an attorney, I now represent clients in collections and creditors’ rights matters, and continue to focus on judgment enforcement.

After becoming a lawyer in 2011, I opened the Evanns Collection Law Firm as it is today, and continue to represent clients in collections and creditor’s rights matters, with a laser focus on judgment enforcement. As of 2023, the firm has satisfied many tens of millions in judgment debt, collected in hundreds of cases, and had some fun along the way. We hate taking money from clients and love taking money from debtors! Thus, The firm takes almost all its cases on contingency, with no out of pocket risk for its clients.* I have been published in national publications on matters of constitutional law and other topics, as well as some local publications. I have done many presentations and webinars on matters related to collections and judgment enforcement, including being a speaker at the 2022 Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles annual event in Las Vegas, which is the largest attorney convention in the United States. Most importantly, I am a real person and will actually talk to you free of charge if you call my office. I may even offer an entertaining story or two. If you become my client, you will probably have mine or my associates cell phone number(s), and be able to contact your attorney very easily by text or phone. We can do this because we do not take many cases at once, and the select ones we do take, get our full focus and attention. This is how we like to run things, and our clients appreciate this about the firm.   Memberships/Affiliations: California Association of Judgment Professionals (Former board member) Los Angeles County Bar Association [Remedies Section] Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles.
