Judgment Collection and Enforcement

So you obtained a judgment – default, summary, or otherwise – now what?

For someone who is aggrieved, getting a judgment in court is only half the process towards being made whole.  Sometimes the more challenging part is collecting on your judgment.  Unfortunately, the courts and law enforcement do not automatically do this for parties to a lawsuit.  If you have a judgment and are wondering how to collect on it, you owe it to yourself to receive professional legal counsel on judgment enforcement from a lawyer.

Thompson Law Office assists individuals and businesses in enforcing judgments obtained in small claims court, county court, or district court.   We serve communities throughout Nebraska.  If you have questions about how to collect money from someone who owes you money under a default judgment or other judgment, contact an attorney at Thompson Law Office in west Omaha, Nebraska.
