Winning judgment on a money damage claim often is not enough. To obtain payment, the defendant's assets must be identified and secured, and the eventual judgment must be enforced. Detailed procedures are available under Massachusetts law to accomplish these goals. Collection Law explains these procedures and offers practical advice for their use.

On securing assets, topics covered include attachment, trustee process, liens, lis pendens, equitable orders, and fraudulent transfers. On enforcing judgment, topics include supplementary process, execution, levy and sale, reach and apply, receivership and repossession. Other chapters cover specific aspects of securing and enforcing judgments, including accepting a case and finding assets, suits against estates, suits on judgments, piercing the corporate veil, use of criminal procedure and ensuring the validity judgments and protecting them from attack.

The book also covers the special requirements and dangers involved in any action where the defendant is a “consumer” under federal and Massachusetts law and regulations, including the danger of attorney liability.
