If you have questions about the commercial collections process or want to learn about your legal rights, you should speak with a licensed commercial collections attorney in Los Angeles.

Return on Your Investment

With the right collection attorney (i.e., a collection attorney that can actually collect), a money judgment can accumulate a sizable 'return on one's investment'. As of January 1, 1983, the rate of interest on a money judgment is 10% per annum. California Code of Civil Procedure §685.010(a). Perhaps surprisingly, that rate of return is generally better than one offered by a bank.

Is Any Property Outside a Creditor's Reach?

If a debtor voluntarily paid his/her judgment, there would be no need for a collection attorney. Since the failure to pay a creditor back happens more often than not, should a creditor want to enforce a judgment, he needs a competent collection attorney. One of the best tests of competency is how a collection attorney responds to a debtor's claim of exemption. A judgment debtor utilizes a claim of exemption to protect his property from a judgment creditor.
