While we recommend that each client make considerable and reasonable effort to avoid a lawsuit, it is an unfortunate truth that relationships do turn sour and a lawsuit may be necessary to protect each party's interest. When it comes to rent collection lawsuits, we bring over 5 decades worth of experience but have a laser focus on collecting, not just winning the lawsuit. Part of our initial analysis and prior to the filing of a collection lawsuit is analyzing the defendant's assets and likelihood of settling or collecting on a judgment.
Collecting on a judgment is a totally different process than obtaining the judgment. It is more than just going through the motions, but knowing how best to convince the defendant that they are better off paying on the judgment than running up more legal fees. Sometimes it takes creativity to get paid, something that we are well known for.
