New York Wage Garnishment Attorney
Garnished wages? We can help.
If your wages are unexpectedly being garnished, you were sued and suffered a default judgment. This judgment entitles your creditor to hire a marshal or sheriff to seize your wages. We stop marshals and sheriffs by filing papers signed by a judge that legally stops them. Then we simply drag the creditor back in court to demand that your case be reopened and that you are given a chance to defend yourself.
Fairly complicated procedural law governs this area of law. It is wise to hire an attorney to stop a wage garnishment and assert your defenses to the underlying debt. You may read this blog post to get a summary of the law.
