Did You Win a Judgment You Can’t Collect?
It is SO FRUSTRATING! You went to court. You prevailed. You have a Court judgment. But it is as you left court with nothing more than a worthless piece of paper. Welcome to the world of judgment enforcement. Collecting judgments is often more frustrating and more difficult that winning in a Courtroom. Why? Because the Courts, the judge, the legal system all cut you loose to attempt to collect your own money. Very likely we can help you!
Your judgment debtor isn’t paying you! You asked. You demanded. You sued. You won — in court — legally proven to the world they owe you! Still, no paying you to your satisfaction. Chances are your debtor has no intention to ever pay you. It is likely, to avoid you collecting after your Court victory, that your debtor is attempting to hide assets and income sources. You have come to the right place if you are discouraged, pessimistic and frustrated!
Let’s be real. Judgment debtors are usually seasoned deadbeats. Unfortunately, your debtor lied, fooled, tricked you, or fell upon bad times at the wrong moment. The upshot is that you have a debtor who is making no concrete efforts to pay you. Nothing will change until you change your tactics.

over and over again
and expecting different results.
MAYBE… it is time that YOU do something differently.

We Can LOCATE Your Debtor and Their Assets
LOCATE YOUR JUDGMENT DEBTOR – Quarrystone Financial Services has the specialists and the special resources to find judgment debtors. Just one example is when we were first licensed by the County of Los Angeles as process servers… That opened new databases to our already sizeable arsenal we use to find judgment debtors and assets. Our asset locators and investigators are excellent at finding homes, RVs, boats, cars, trucks — even hidden bank accounts. Finding assets and people is fun and rewarding: even more so when we are able to collect!
We Recover Judgments Using Power of Legal System
LOCATE DEBTORS and THEIR ASSETS – If hiding, once we locate your debtor, we do an in-depth asset investigation to locate real estate, bank accounts, RVs, trucks, autos, and sometimes a new — or never disclosed — employer.
As soon as we find your debtor’s assets we make arrangements to seize their assets (like cars and trucks that are paid or equity is greater than loan), garnish their wages and levy bank accounts. If your debtor is the owner of a business, we can arrange a “keeper” (a person who has a court order to sit in the business collecting ANY money coming into the business until the amount of the order is reached. A “keeper” and his or her fees are ADDED ON TOP of your debtor’s judgment amount. Keepers (sometimes generically referred to as a “till tap”) are surprisingly effective.
Everyone Loves a Surprise – We never let your debtor know WHAT and WHEN we will seize, garnish, or levy. Debtors are very surprised — SHOCKED !!! — when we strike.
If our first seize/garnish/levy action does not collect the entire value of the judgment, sometimes your debtor is so embarased they will make arrangements to pay off the remaining judgment balance. Very often they just want us to go away! We are happy to be the squeaky wheel that is paid to “go away…” This is how we use the power of the legal system to execute and recover judgments.
We Help Individuals, Law Firms, and Businesses Collect
Since you are visiting our Pasadena judgment collection website, chances are you have figured out that the the Court judgment you won, is nothing more than a worthless piece of paper. You also have learned, we suspect, that collecting the money owed you — PROVEN IN A COURT — is just as difficult, or more so, than winning your court judgment in the first place. Why? The court does not help judgment WINNERS collect your money… You are on your own!
Sadly, judgment collection is expensive, complicated and difficult. Like you, we too must follow precise legal requirements. Your judgment debtor will likely have changed addresses, hidden their employment or income sources, and moved assets. However, we can find them and their assets if they have any. And guess what? When you assign your judgment to us, the cost of finding them and their assets is ALL on us. The time and expense is paid by us — NOT YOU — nor deducted from any money we recover.
80% of Court Judgments Go Uncollected – We want to CHANGE THAT!
Judgment Recovery is time consuming and expensive. Unfortunately, it is as if California state statutes are purposefully drafted to protect judgment debtors and NOT judgment creditors. Why is that? Judgment creditors are the victims of non payment. How frustrating! If you are finally fed up and looking for help collecting your judgment, you’ve come to the right place. You now know HOW the “80% of Court Judgments go uncollected” statistic came to be. Judgment Creditors just cannot make their debtors PAY by being nice! Call US. WE are nice people, but unrelenting — some call us ruthless — judgment ENFORCERS!

Why Hire a Pasadena Judgment Collection Specialist?
We know Judgment winners RARELY collect money owed them
Judgment collection in Pasadena, or anywhere in California, is HARDER than winning your judgment. Judgment collection is so expensive and time consuming judgment winners eventually stop trying out of utter frustration. We understand that frustration! Law firms that regularly sue for money, and the attorneys who own those legal practices, hire us to collect their judgments. Lawyers are good at winning judgments in court, but just don’t have the time or tools to collect their own judgments. Same is true for businesses that get a few judgments per year. If you are a sole individual, assign your frustrating judgment to us to collect.
We have 23-years of combined judgment collection experience. We have skip-tracers, asset locators, investigators, licensed process servers, financial investigators, and other judgment recovery specialists READY to work on judgment collection. We have publically-unavailable databases and investigative tools, usually accessible to banks and law enforcement, at our fingertips. Finally, we are MOTIVATED to get you the money owed to you.
We’d like nothing more than to IMPRESS you with our judgment collection abilities.
What Do We Charge?
Collecting judgments, as you know by now, is a tough job. We charge 50% of all amounts collected on judgments assigned to us. Our rent, overhead, payroll, asset location, investigation — ALL EXPENSES — are on us. You never pay any of that. For every dime we collect that is paid to you, ONLY THEN do we also earn a dime. If YOU don’t get paid — WE don’t get paid! Very Motivating!
NO UPFRONT COST FOR YOU. ALL EXPENSES we incur collecting judgments are out of our pockets. NO COST to you to get us started collecting your judgment beyond a $10 dollar notary fee. All the possible downside – all the costs of collection are our risk and our cost – not yours.
How we Collect Debtor Judgments
We are Judgment Recovery Specialists – We are know as “Judgment Enforcement” professionals here in Pasadena. We take pride in treating EVERY judgment collection assignment with the utmost of personal attention. Assigned judgments do not collect dust here. We work them.
We start by finding your judgment debtor, if they have been dodging you. Then we begin an in-debth asset location investigation. We search for your debtor’s assets, employer or income stream using investigative databases and other tools not available to the general public. Then using every power afforded us by law, we seize, garnish or levy the debtor to GET YOU PAID!
After your debtor is located — if necessary — and we uncover their assets, sources of income, then we use any legal means available to seize, attach, garnish or levy their assets. We don’t drop leaflets over their home. We don’t mail them “courtesy notices” of our intentions to seize/garnish/levy in advance! Most debtors are shocked when they find their bank account emptied, their car or boat missing, or their employer summoning them in for an awkward meeting with the boss about a wage garnishment their employer’s payroll deparment must now deal with for weeks or months. Should the debtor then make attempts to transfer, move, or hide the assets we’ve located will not go over well before a Court judge.
When we are working to collect your judgment, should the debtor refuse to pay, we can also use the power of the legal system to compel the debtor to appear in court for a Debtor Examination. During these Debtor Examinations, the Court can compel the debtor to provide financial records such as bank statements, paystubs, even property deeds. The Court will also insist that the debtor be forthcoming and reveal their sources of income. If the judgment debtor fails to appear, they could be held in contempt of court, whereupon a bench warrant is usually issued for the debtor’s arrest. That will get their attention!
The Mechanics of Judgment Collection at Quarrystone
You assign your judgment to us using an “Acknowledgment of Assignment of Judgment”. That is an industry and Court standard document. Your judgment then becomes “our judgment” for a lenth of time so we can we can appear in court, work with the court and the Sheriff’s office and any other city, county and state agencies necessary to collect from the debtor.
Needless to say, we become VERY motivated! After we have done our asset location investigation, we use the power of the Courts to collect from what you might now realize is a “professional deadbeat”.
Remember. Judgment Collection is ALL we do. We are GOOD AT IT! We are NOT like ‘judgment mills’ that stack countless judgments on a shelf waiting for the random debtor trying to buy a house or get a mortgage loan call in to FINALLY make arrangements to pay. Nope… We actually WORK our judgment collection cases. That’s WHAT we do. That’s WHO we are. We are relentless worker bees.
In addition to an Acknowledgment of Assignment of Judgment, a simple agreement which outlines exactly what we do is the sum total of getting us started. The agreement is to protect both parties. The minute we file the documents in Court, and become the “Assignee of Record” we can represent ourselves in court as if we were you. Then we aggressively pursue collecting the judgment. We divide any funds we collect 50-50% with you.
