The pictures in this section have all occurred during or following:

    1. actual law enforcement operations on writs of execution; and

    2. actual law enforcement assisted Receivership operations.

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. 

Since January 1, 2018, Andy has successfully levied on cash and property in the capacity of Court Appointed Receiver in four different Receiverships.

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 media coverage related to a 2016 U.S. Marshal operation observed by Andy's Partner David Diaz, see http://kfoxtv.com/archive/us-marshals-send-message-to-all-el-paso-bars-after-till-tap-conducted.

Consider returning to this section because we will continue to add pictures and materials from our archives, and from operations, collection activity and litigation occurring in 2018. 

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.

My Family's Consigliere
Mr. Korn is our "Go To" Advisor for my Family Real Estate Business. We have had other attorneys, but Korn is where we start (and often end up hiring) when we need Counsel.

Quick, thorough, responsive
Mr. Korn was contacted very last minute and asked to act under very short timelines which he was able to achieve for our success. We are appreciative of his efforts to go above and beyond in our case.

My Champion
I have had the opportunity to work with multiple attorneys over the past two decades and Mr. Korn far exceeds my expectations. I knew he was compassionate when he thoroughly listened to every detail, investing his knowledge and years of expertise right from the beginning. Not once have I felt alone in these battles, but championed by the best. Mr. Korn has worked tirelessly to ensure my voice was heard and case defended. It wasn’t until I read our first petition that I fully grasped the superior level of intelligence on my side. Litigation can be intimidating, however, equipping oneself with counsel that outshines the rest, provides confidence in great outcomes.

Excellent representation, great communicator, extremely professional at a reasonable fee.
As a retired attorney, I know excellent representation when I see it and I know a reasonable fee for services rendered. Hired Mr. Korn to pursue a seven figure debt owed to my retirement fund from a pharmaceutical company. In retaliation, the pharmaceutical company sued me for hundreds of millions of dollars. Mr. Korn, in summary judgment proceedings, got a seven figure judgment for my retirement fund and defeated all the pharmaceutical company's claims against me. Mr. Korn's thought process and strategy was brilliant. His knowledge of the law and his pleadings were exceptional. Mr. Korn's services were not cheap, they were however, reasonable for his time, expertise and outcome. Highly recommend Mr. Korn for litigation and debt collection. Don't know yet if we'll be dealing with defendant appeals. If we do, Mr. Korn is my man. His pleading and establishing a record are excellent.

Post Judgment Collections
Andy Korn definitely gets the job done effectively and efficiently. Andy helped us collect an outstanding judgment that we could not collect until I retained Andy. Andy is tenacious and he will not give up. I will definitely use Andy again. General Counsel at a large Real Estate Company

Intellectually aggressive
Mr. Korn was hired after interviewing several attorneys. His level of concern and knowledge in addition to his determination were all key ingredients to the success of the case. Would neither hesitate to give him another case nor recommend him

A Wealth of Knowledge
We engaged Andy Korn as co-counsel to assist with representation of a client pursuing collection of a judgment. From the outset, Andy's wealth of knowledge, both legal and practical, proved to be invaluable to the case. We were met with several unique challenges in the case, and Andy proposed thoughtful solutions to each of them, communicating in detail the pros and cons of each of his suggestions, while giving additional insight from his considerable past experience in collection matters. For many attorneys, judgment collection is an unfamiliar process, but we felt the utmost confidence with Andy in our corner.

Outstanding service
Andy went above and beyond in assisting with a breach of contract action and collection, with sage counsel and a reasonable fee, leading to a full recovery. We would definitely hire Andy again and look forward to working with him in the future.

Mission accomplished. A real pro.
Mr. Korn executed full collection of $1 million + judgement in one afternoon. He was well prepared well aware of all the sham LLC's, fraudulent conveyances, and calculating lies and lies and lies that he would be encountering. He was very professional and effective. He did not waste any time. He just got to work and did it without any appellate lawyer procrastination rhetoric. I appreciated his pursuit of justice attitude. I am very thankful of the work he did.

For Your Legal Services, This Is Your Man!
I have been extremely pleased since Day 1 with the legal services provided by Mr. Andrew Korn. He came very highly recommended by a respected business colleague in the legal field. Mr. Korn at all times outlined and explained in detail the legal process associated with my case, the exact cost of his legal services - what to expect and plan for, the method and manner in which we would proceed, and the exact timeline. He was efficient, no-nonsense, always had my best interest, and above all, highly effective. There was never any ambiguity and all of my questions were answered. He was at all times prompt with his return telephone calls and emails...a very rare quality in the legal field. I am extremely pleased with the services Mr. Korn provided me and the outcome that was achieved in my case. I would even dare say that is somewhat of an understatement. I actually could not have been more pleased. For your legal services, this is your man. I definitely would recommend him to my friends and family in the future should the need ever arise. You will not find a more dedicated, diligent, knowledgeable, and efficient attorney for your legal needs.

Post Judgement Collection
After attempting for several years to collect on a judgement and finally rraching the end of the line financially. I was directed to Andy in the nick of time. At this stage, he was my last and only hope to collect what had been owed for years and hidden in trusts we could not access. He was very fair in cost and it was more than worth every penny to see him in action! He was strategic and precise implementing his operation while keeping me informed each step of the way even able to watch the day of the levy as I was out of country. It seems it should be this easy, but for years it proved impossible. I paid the agreed upon amount, I'm ever grateful to Andy and his team for the positive turn of events that ended in my favor and the collection of the debt.

Post-Judgment Collections
I hired Andy through my other attorney to help with collecting on a civil money judgment. Due to his expertise, we were able to set up a sound strategy that resulted in a complete victory for us. We have never met another attorney so knowledgeable in this area of law. If you don't think you can collect on your judgment, then hire Andy and listen to what he has to say. I guarantee that you wouldn't want him on the other side.

Exceeds expectations
Over more than two decades, my firm has associated Andy on a variety of matters. Our expectation is that he'll perform at the highest level, and; without exception, he has exceeded our expectations. He's a great lawyer, and more importantly, a good person. It's my honor to endorse him.

Highly Prepared. Highly Effective.
I am a retired police officer. I currently serve process and provide support to attorneys in criminal and civil proceedings. I have experience with at least 100 attorneys. Recently, I was fortunate to have Andy Korn represent me in a Case. In 2016 and 2017, I personally observed Andy Korn do the following: Present and defend motions before the Judge; Take depositions; Prepare for court, depositions, pleadings and briefing; Negotiate during settlement conferences; Interview witnesses, potential experts, and potential local counsel; and Communicate with me about the events in my Case and related cases, sharing his opinions and evaluation. Along with Holmes and Otis, I put Andy Korn up as one of the most effective lawyers I’ve ever known.

Game Changer
For nearly two years my partner and I had been attempting to resolve a dispute with a former contracted employee. Before seeking counsel from Mr. Korn, we had enlisted the help of a litigator partnered at a local, very reputable firm. What they could not do, Mr. Korn could! He settled the case in our favor in just a few short months. He was direct and stead-fast in his communications with our former employee's counsel, while he maintained a sense of warmth and openness with my partner and I. The value of the service he provided far exceeded the very reasonable fee he assessed for the time he spent helping us resolve our problem.

Excellent only begins to describe Mr. Korn's service.
When I needed to retain an expert on attorneys fees and legal ethics, Mr. Korn and the talented lawyers at Korn Diaz were at the ready. Andy left no stone unturned and did so well within the required budget. His attendance at mediation was a deciding factor in getting the matter favorably resolved. I would and do recommend Mr. Korn and his firm.

Debt collection Attorney | Sep 03
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I worked with Mr. Korn as a receiver in a matter involving a reluctant judgment debtor. Even before the collection process started, he revealed his professionalism and dedication by providing critical information in getting him appointed as a receiver in our case. In less than less than 4 hours we went from "not having enough to pay the judgment" to collecting the entire $1.3M due. Literally 4 hours. A professional in every sense of the word and I will work with him any time I have a matter in Texas."
Litigation Attorney | Jan 14
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Andy is a truly unique attorney in that his insights and approach go way beyond his formidable skills and dogged work ethic. It is really wonderful to watch him work."
Debt collection Attorney | May 12
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Korn's experience and expertise are evident from the outset in a matter: practical solutions are suggested; effective strategies are used."
Litigation Attorney | Mar 09
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer. Mr. Korn and I have a mutual client in East Texas. I represented the client through one phase of the litigation, and then Mr. Korn took over. I am extremely impressed with the results he has been able to achieve in a short period of time by pursuing a smart and aggressive approach. While I was able to get the client money from the offending city who had violated my client's rights, Mr. Korn has achieved results in subsequent litigation involving different violations that I would not have thought possible. Since Mr. Korn has taken over, he has forced an entire reorganization of the city's administration--including forcing resignations of the mayor, police chief, and other city personnel who blatantly violated our client's civil rights. While this result is good for the client, it is also good for the community. I appreciate Mr. Korn's work and would recommend him to any of my clients."
Litigation Attorney | Oct 18
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Andy Korn is an excellent attorney. I met Andy when he assisted in a strategy session on a case and was impressed with his insight and legal acumen. Andy was then called on short notice to represent a witness in one of my cases who was scheduled for deposition but had no attorney. Andy jumped right in, grasped the facts and issues immediately, and represented the witness well. I highly endorse Andy."
Appeals Attorney | Aug 29
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I'm lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Andy on a couple of different cases recently. I am glad we've been on the same side. I learn something new every time he opens his mouth."
Litigation Attorney | Apr 30
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Andy is an extraordinary attorney and person. Besides being a brilliant strategist, he is incredibly smart and hard working. Having worked with Andy on several cases, I've developed so much faith in his abilities that, if I became involved in litigation and need a lawyer, I would hire Andy to represent me without hesitation or reservation."
Appeals Attorney | Apr 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Andy is one of the most intelligent, well studied and creative lawyers I know."
Personal injury Attorney | Apr 02
