Creditors’ Rights in New York

Understanding Creditors’ Legal Rights in NY State

At Hacker Murphy LLP, we understand how to cost effectively collect commercial debts and enforce judgments. We partner with asset search investigation firms to locate a debtor’s assets. We employ legal tools such as subpoenas and executions to further locate, seize and sell a debtor’s non-exempt assets to satisfy our client’s debt. If a debtor tries to shield themselves by filing bankruptcy, we can appear in bankruptcy court to ensure the debt survives. Often times we are able to leverage our aggressive collection efforts to negotiate a early favorable settlement.

Have Questions?

  • If I hire an attorney but do not want to go to trial, can I settle?
    In the course of preparing a case for trial, your personal injury attorney will work with the defense attorneys and insurance companies in an effort to secure a fair settlement for you and your family. The final decision to accept an offer of settlement or go to trial is yours alone to make.

  • If arrested, what steps can I take on my behalf?

    1. Do not discuss your situation with anyone except your attorney.

    2. Unless your attorney says otherwise, do not discuss your case with law enforcement.

    3. Request to have your attorney present if you are to be put in a lineup or subjected to testing.

    4. Remain calm and courteous. Allow your attorney to speak for you to ensure that your rights are protected and you are given all the benefits afforded to you under the law.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
