Collection Attorneys Who Understand NY Laws
The E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy legal team has vast experience handling all payment disputes and collection scenarios, including:
- Enforcement of contracts
- Collection of accounts receivable
- Enforcement of personal guarantees and notes
- Obtaining and collecting money judgments
- Filing and perfecting liens (including mechanic’s liens)
- Commercial property foreclosure
- Fraudulent conveyances
- Creditors’ rights in bankruptcy and adversary proceedings
Our experienced attorneys are efficient and effective in establishing money judgments. Our collection efforts include conducting asset searches and taking debtor’s depositions to locate assets. We employ all means necessary to collect those assets, including freezing accounts, garnishing wages, seizing property and forcing the sale of real and personal property. Our firm also will commence litigation seeking to pierce the corporate veil when appropriate.
It is important to note that we understand that heavy-handed tactics are not always warranted. We can formalize payout agreements with cooperative debtors or negotiate partial payment when full recovery is not feasible.
