From our experience at Rosenthal & Goldhaber, we find that potential clients often ask questions similar to the following when they’re thinking about the best possible approach for commercial collections or judgment enforcement.
We hope the answers below are helpful starting points — but to discuss relevant details for your unique circumstances, please contact us and we’ll have a conversation to discuss next steps.
There is no requirement that anyone hire our firm to collect money due to it, or to enforce a judgment that it has obtained. However, the rules for corporations and individuals are different. Corporations are required to be represented by an attorney in court (with the exception of small claims/commercial claims court).
Once a matter must be litigated in the District/Civil Court or the Supreme Court, a corporation MUST be represented by an attorney. However, an individual may proceed on their own. The courts, however, will require you to be well-versed in the law and procedure as you proceed with litigation.
Additionally, once a judgment has been rendered, you may search for assets on your own. However, in both instances (pre-judgment litigation and judgment enforcement), Rosenthal & Goldhaber has the knowledge and experience to effectively obtain a judgment for the debt that our clients are owed, and also to locate assets to satisfy the judgment that has been obtained.
