Checking Account With $21,000 Garnished by Creditor

Grant Phillips

Case Conclusion Date:May 10, 2011

Practice Area:Debt Collection

Outcome:We defended the Writ of Garnishment demanding a hearing in court and presented 3 separate Statutory Defenses why the Creditor could NOT garnish any of our clients money - we won and the entire account was unfrozen!

Description:Our client came to see us based on a deficiency judgment their lender had obtained after foreclosing and selling their investment condomiumum. The bank then got a default judgment for the deficiency (the difference between what was owed and what the bank resold the condo for) They then found a checking account of my clients and Froze the whole account with $21K in the account. That is when our client hired us.
