What is a Judgment


A misfortune or calamity viewed as a divine punishment

A judgment is an official result of a lawsuit in court. In debt collection lawsuits, the judge may award the creditor or debt collector a judgment against you. If you don’t respond to a legal complaint, you will lose your chance to defend yourself and you may find that a judgement is entered against you. If you have a judgment against you contact us and we can help you make arrangements to pay on it. A judgment can stay on your credit for 10 years and be renewed after that.  Interest can add up and you can end up owing thousands of dollars more. Call our office and ask for SK Strong, she is one of the top small claims specialist in California and can help you with making the right choice to pay off the judgment owed.

If someone sues you, or if someone has obtained a judgment against you and you are unsure of what to do, talk to an attorney. Some attorneys may offer free services or charge a reduced fee. There may also be legal aid offices or legal aid offices or legal clinics in your area who will offer their services for free if you meet certain criteria.
