About me

The pictures in this section have all occurred during or following actual law enforcement operations on writs of execution. Over the last twenty years, Andy Korn has personally observed Deputy U.S. Marshals, Texas Sheriffs and Constables and their deputies seize cash, and levy and sell real and personal property pursuant to writs of execution on civil money judgments. Andy has observed law enforcement operations on more than 250 writs of execution – in over 30 different Texas Counties. The number is probably much higher, but Andy stopped counting long ago. 


If you don’t know what a Writ of Execution is, you can read about it on Andy’s AVVO Guide entitled “A Guide on Collecting A Money Judgment in Texas,” at section 07.


For recent media coverage related to a 2016 U.S. Marshal operation observed by Andy's Partner David Diaz, see


Consider returning to this section because we will continue to add pictures and materials from our archives, and from operations that are scheduled to occur in 2016 and 2017. 


On March 17, 2015, at the request of the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission, Andy testified before the Texas Senate Business and Commerce Committee in favor of Senate Bill 367 (Relating tothe unauthorized use of an alcoholic beverage permit or license; providing a criminal penalty). The Bill ultimately passed, and was signed into law by the Governor.
