About This Course
Successfully prosecuting a civil case to judgment is great, but clients typically expect money at the end of the case. This is especially important for lawyers who work on a contingent fee basis. If the judgment debtor has no available insurance – or if the judgment in question exceeds those limits, you need to understand the mechanics of collection law, so you can finish the job, monetize the judgment and get your client (and potentially yourself) paid.
This course discusses the nuts and bolts of a collection case under Illinois law and explains many potential pitfalls to avoid. We also touch on related types of litigation that can occur in a collection case.
