Judgment Enforcement in New York: What You Need To Know

With over 75 years of debt collection experience, the attorneys at Frank, Frank, Goldstein & Nager, P.C. know which strategies get their clients paid.

Jocelyn Nager, Esq., president of FFGN, is a highly sought after speaker known for her ability to teach other New York attorneys how to successfully enforce judgments.

This year Ms. Nager was invited by the New York State Bar Association to give a presentation on debt collection and the enforcement of money judgments. Her informative talk was recorded and is available to watch online.

A judgment — a court-issued document which states the creditor is entitled to certain amount of money — can prove helpful in recovering monies owed by a non-responsive debtor. However, it is possible to collect without a judgment. Many collection matters are resolved outside of court. Early-intervention handled by an experienced debt collection attorney can be an efficient and cost-effective option for both creditor and debtor.

In addition to ways to collect with or without a judgment, Ms. Nager’s talk also covers:

  • When to get a collection attorney involved
  • What happens after a judgment is issued
  • How judgments are served
  • Items exempt from judgments
  • Information regarding liens and collection on property
  • Pertinent compliancy guidelines
  • Additional strategies that can aid in recovering monies owed
