There is a misconception that getting a money judgment against someone, means they will pay you. In general, that is NOT the case. We, at Perry Law Office, have found that on average it can take up to two (2) years to collect on a judgment depending on the various circumstances and how old the debt is. There are of course those rare circumstances when you get paid immediately upfront. But in most circumstances that is not the case. Getting the money judgment is only the first step. Debtors, tend to move. Debtors, tend to switch jobs. Debtors, tend to be unwilling to voluntarily pay a debt they owe. Debt Collection takes some time and hard work. Finding employment, personal assets, or bank accounts can be very difficult. Not to mention, finding the debtor and getting proper service in order to enforce your claim against them. The experienced staff and attorneys at Perry Law Office, are equipped to find these debtors and collect from them. Perry Law Office can find where they are working and garnish their wages, levy on their bank account, or set up voluntary payments. If someone owes you money and you are not sure how to collect, hire an experienced lawyer to help you collect the money owed to you. Hiring an attorney is not as painful as you may believe. In most cases, you do NOT have to pay the attorney any attorney fees. Like at Perry Law Office, our fee is typically done on a contingent fee basis, meaning if we do NOT collect, you do not owe us anything. Call Perry Law Office to discuss how we may be able to help you recoup your money.
Every adult person should probably have a Will or some other estate plan that they have thought about and implemented. A Will is perhaps the most common estate planning device and is one of the simplest and easiest to implement. Most people do not think about getting a Will until an event in their life causes them to feel the need to do so. Some of the most common calls, we at Perry Law Office often get are calls from newlyweds, couples or individuals that have just had or are expecting their first child, someone in bad or deteriorating health, or from an adult child regarding their mother or father who has put it off way to long. The Attorneys at Perry Law office have also had calls from people who did not consider the need for an estate plan until they were getting ready to go on a trip. All of these are great reasons to start thinking about a Will. However, it is best, to consider some sort of an estate plan early in your adult life, but you are never to old to start this process either. You never know what the future might bring, and if you die without a Will or other estate plan your assets might not be distributed to the persons that you want. For example, an adult unmarried individual that has no children and dies without a Will or other estate plan would have their assets distributed to their parents, and their brothers and sisters. This may or may not be what they would actually want to happen. A Will is a easy to dictate where your assets go and who gets them. People are often surprised at how easy, and inexpensive it is to create a simple estate plan. They often comment that if they had known it would be this easy they would have done it much earlier.
