She Works Hard for the Money!

By Law Office of Abel L. Pierre, Attorney at Law, P.C.

We all work hard for our paycheck. We race into work and race home to sleep, wake up, and do it all over again. Sometimes, if things go our way, we even work extra hours or a second job just to make ends meet or have enough to save for that dream vacation, a new car or just to make sure we have money stashed away for a rainy day.

Imagine how you would feel if you found out that your paycheck, which is already loaded with deductions was about to shrink even smaller because of a default judgment. Yes! The sheriff or Marshal where you live is about to hit you with a garnishment for a judgment that you know nothing about! Well that scenario happens all of the time as it did for a recent client of ours.

This particular client was about to lose a chunk of money from her paycheck due to a sheriffs notice of income execution to garnish her wages. She did not know what to do, so she turned to the Law Office of Abel L. Pierre, Attorney at Law, P.C.. After some careful investigation we discovered that the rogue debt collector was able to get a default judgment against her even though they never actually served her.

We were able to file the necessary papers in court to convince the debt collection lawyer to back off cancel the judgment and garnishment. The sheriff had to back off and leave our client’s money in her pocket, where it belonged.

If you have received a notice of garnishment or income execution against your wages or paycheck due to a default judgment, contact the Law Office of Abel L. Pierre, Attorney at Law, P.C. today. Abel Pierre has over a decade of successfully fighting debt collectors and collection lawyers
