You Won a Judgment - Now What?
At some stage of the case, even successful litigants may be unpleasantly surprised to learn that winning a lawsuit can be just the first step in securing compensation.
Collecting a judgment can be arduous and frustrating. Being made whole is not easy. Judgment debtors may try to make that effort even harder. Debtors may not be direct about their assets or their means; some actively hide property to evade payment.
