Pasadena Asset Investigations Lawyers
Some debtors and potential defendants are simply judgment proof — they have no funds or assets to begin with, so why go to the trouble and expense of a lawsuit? Other debtors actually do have assets, but they manage to hide them from their creditors in a variety of devious ways.
At Chora Young LLP, three of our attorneys are also private investigators. We know how to find a debtor’s assets regardless of how well hidden, so you can determine whether to file a lawsuit, or collect on an existing judgment if there are assets to seize.
Determining Assets Before You File a Lawsuit
Litigation is not free of charge, and before you invest the time and money to sue an individual or business, it is in your best interests to first determine if that party has the assets from which to collect a judgment. In our extensive pre-litigation search for existing assets, we look for bank accounts, stocks, bonds, safety deposit boxes, real estate, accounts receivable, intellectual property, and any other possible assets the subject could conceivably have.
Establish a Timeline for Possession of Assets
In many cases, companies or individuals who are being sued will immediately begin transferring assets to hide them or protect them. Pre-litigation asset investigations can serve the additional purpose of helping your attorney expose suspicious pre-judgment transfers of assets.
Identifying Hidden Assets
Debtors fearing civil litigation and judgments often try to hide their assets by transferring ownership to family members, friends, or business entities. Our Pasadena asset investigation attorneys know how to pull the right strings and untangle the web of skillfully disguised control and ownership interest in property and assets.
