A judgment is a document awarding money to the successful litigant, but if the debtor doesn't step up and pay, it has to be collected. Judgment collection can be time consuming. There are specific statutes, both state and federal, that govern how judgments can be collected and which provide debtors with protections and exemptions from collection. Many attorneys do not collect judgments that they obtain for their clients. We do.
