Florida debtor won't pay? Call Gary!
Many plaintiffs sue Florida defendants only to find that the defendant refuses to acknowledge the out-of-state court, much less pay the judgment arising therefrom. These plaintiffs are therefore forced to domesticate that judgment in Florida for enforcement. In fact, many Florida lawyers will advise their clients to ignore judgments against them from out-of-state on the mistaken belief that said judgment cannot be enforced in Florida against the Florida debtor's assets. The good news is that under Florida law, a judgment debtor must post a bond in the full amount of the judgment in order to keep said out-of-state ("foreign") judgment from being enforced in Florida just as if it were entered in Washington. In fact, getting a Florida debtor to do so is relatively easy, but doing so if you're not in Florida can be daunting. Enter Gary Olsen and his husband-and-wife firm. Gary handled my judgment enforcement case professionally against an exceedingly obstreperous defendant's counsel. Ultimately, after five years of litigation including three appeals, we prevailed. Gary stayed with the case despite having gotten way, way more than he (or I) bargained for, keeping me informed the entire time. Mine is one of the two published opinions listed on his website. Bottom line: Want your money from a Florida debtor? Call Gary!
