Handling Your Post-Judgment Files

OnDemand Webinar (65 minutes)

Understand the basics of collection law to the advanced methods of tracking judgments from debtors.Post-judgment collection is the final step in every lawsuit and is also the stage that goes ignored. According to the ABA, 80% of civil judgments go uncollected, which provides an opportunity for attorneys to distinguish themselves from their peers who stop after getting the judgment. To collect on a judgment, an attorney must understand the tools at their disposal. This course will discuss all of the tools, from the basics of collection law to the advanced methods of tracking judgments from sophisticated debtors. We will talk about voidable transfers, fiduciary duties, charging orders, and other options a good litigation attorney can use to collect on a judgment.
