Seizing Assets Directly from the SourceWhen debtors fail to pay their dues, creditors often struggle to recover their funds, especially when faced with complex strategies designed to hide assets. One powerful tool at a creditor’s disposal is bank garnishment. This legal process allows creditors to intercept funds directly from a debtor’s bank account, bypassing evasive tactics and securing payment at the source.

A Tale of Recovered FundsLawyer consulting with a client about debt recovery.

Consider the case of a real estate investor who obtained a $390,000 judgment against a corporate tenant that vacated a commercial warehouse space before the lease ended. Despite having a court order, the debtor employed various methods to hide assets, transferring funds to hidden accounts and affiliates. Conventional collection methods repeatedly failed, recovering only small portions of the debt.

Undeterred, the investor’s legal team meticulously gathered information and filed protective orders, pinpointing the debtor’s banking relationships. With compelling evidence of fraudulent asset transfers, the attorneys secured a court order to garnish the debtor’s accounts. Within two weeks, $249,000 was recovered from previously inaccessible funds, demonstrating the effectiveness of bank garnishment in cutting through complex asset-hiding schemes.
