Lawyer Won't Collect My Judgment
If you are reading this, it is most likely you were Awarded a Court Judgment in New Jersey. Many people or businesses hire an attorney or collection agency to collect their unpaid invoice, services rendered or for a number of civil reasons.
Collection efforts have failed and you decided to take them to court. You may have paid a lawyer an hourly fee or on a contingency basis to represent you in court seeking a money judgment. If your attorney was hired hourly or by a flat fee, once you receive the Judgment in New Jersey the attorney has performed his contractual obligation in most cases. He has no obligation to recover or Enforce a Judgment for you. The Lawyer may attempt judgment collection for a fee or portion of the amount recovered however; many seem to rather move on to their next case.
If your agreement to obtain a Court Awarded Judgment was on a contingency basis, the lawyer may be more so inclined to enforce your judgment so he/she may collect the portion due them. But, do not expect extreme efforts as if they feel they are “spinning their wheels” with little or no hope of collecting your judgment, efforts will dwindle or cease.
