Course Description

Commercial Collections Litigation is a rather technical practice, containing many a pitfall for the unwary advocate. Carol G. Morokoff, a litigator with 28 years of experience, presents a soup to nuts program starting with retaining the client, drafting the summons and complaint, strategies for most effectively prosecuting the claim, encouraging client participation, entering a judgment and finally attempting to collect the judgment. Her program cites detailed instructions for freezing bank accounts, garnishing wages, and placing liens on real property. This is a must see for those contemplating a practice containing collections work.

 

Learning Objectives:

I.     Define commercial collections 

II.    Identify tactics on retaining a client and getting paid 

III.   Recognize best practices for: 

  • citing the correct parties

  • best evidence
  • using discovery effectively
  • entering a judgment
  • docketing the judgment
  • renewal judgments
  • reversing the transfer of real property
  • satisfaction of judgment

IV.   Grasp new trial tips

V.    Understand Article 52 of the CPLR
