PA Debt Collection – Writ of Execution

The Martin Law Firm, P.C. is a debt collection law firm located just outside Philadelphia. We serve individual or business creditors by providing legal solutions for collecting debts in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Our client’s value our ability and experience in litigating these matters to obtain a judgment against the debtor and to enforce the judgment.

There are three basic stages to the debt collection process:

  • Demand Letter
  • Lawsuit/Judgment
  • Enforcement of a Judgment

When a judgment is entered against a debtor for a specified sum, and the debtor refused to pay the amount due, a debt collection lawyer may proceed with legal remedies to enforce the judgment. We begin this process by finding assets owned by the debtor. We do this through private investigations or discovery. When assets are discovered, we take those assets through a legal process that begins with a Writ of Execution.


What is a Writ of Execution?

A Writ of Execution is a court order that directs the sheriff to take property owned by the judgment debtor to satisfy in full or in part the judgment that was obtained. A Writ of Execution can direct the sheriff to take personal property of the debtor which can then be sold at a sheriff’s sale. A Writ of Execution is also used when bank accounts owned by the debtor are located. The Writ directs the bank to freeze the account so that the money can be taken through lawful means.
