Wilmington NC Debt Collection and Judgment Enforcement Attorney
Collecting debts is critical to the cash flow of any business. As part of our overall business practice, we assist clients in recovering past due receivables. We primarily use our litigation experience as leverage to negotiate the best deal for our clients. Wherever warranted, we assert claims for breach of contract, fraud, or Unfair and Deceptive Trade Practices, to maximize both the pressure on the defendant and the recovery to our client.
The firm represents several debt buyers, investors, financial institutions, and numerous individuals in collecting money owed following entry of judgment. Many of these are North Carolina judgments, but we also domesticate judgments from other states and enforce them in North Carolina, pursuant to the North Carolina Uniform Enforcement of Foreign Judgments Act.

Recovered more than $120,000.00 from corporate defendant on domesticated New Jersey judgment. Ives v. Myers Inv. Servs., (10 CVS 743 Harnett Co). (September 2011).
