Default Judgment/Money Judgment
New York City Debt Collection Defense Lawyer
Default judgments, also known as money judgments, mean that a person was summoned and failed to respond, or failed to appear, in court. If you have a default judgment, that judgment was then entered against you in favor of the creditor or whoever brought the charges against you.

Protection against Default Judgment and Debt Collectors
New York City Consumer Protection Laws are some of the strongest in the country in terms of debt collection and harassment from creditors. The Department of Consumer Affairs reports the top complaint category to be debt collection. Their advice, and ours, is to never ignore a court summons. Get yourself professional, legal representation immediately. The time to act is well before a default judgment is issued. If it has already been issued then there is not a minute to waste. Action needs to be taken before your bank accounts are frozen and drained.
If you are caught in a nightmare of false accusations based on identity theft or inaccurate and sloppy methods by collection agencies, process servers or creditors, we will aggressively sue those involved. Debt collection scams, improper service of summons and other forms of debt collection abuse should be aggressively fought and we are interested in holding them accountable on your behalf. We are experienced at accomplishing excellent results for our clients in these matters.
