Judgments and Wage Garnishments

Judgments and Wage Garnishments Lawyers

The threat or reality of a creditor lawsuit or court judgment against you is one of a range of situations that call for immediate counsel from an experienced Florida bankruptcy lawyer. Many financially devastating consequences can quickly follow, including a substantial garnishment of your wages or seizure of your bank accounts.

If you qualify — and the vast majority of clients we meet can file either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy — you will be able to take advantage of an automatic stay that stops all creditor actions against you, including judgments and wage garnishments. This is powerful, reliable and legally enforceable debt relief.

Decisive Action to Stop Creditor Lawsuits, Judgments and Garnishments

At McIntyre Thanasides Bringgold Elliott Grimaldi & Guito, P.A., we are always prepared to hear you out, analyze your overall financial situation and clearly spell out your legal options for getting meaningful debt relief. Applying many decades of experience among more than a dozen attorneys, we help clients throughout west central Florida stop or avoid the crippling loss of their income before it ever even reaches them.

It is critical to recognize that once you are served notice that a creditor is pursuing a lawsuit or judgment, failing to respond or appear in court will almost certainly result in a default judgment. Wage garnishment usually follows quickly afterward. Our Tampa bankruptcy lawyers stand ready to help people who have:

  • Already had wages garnished, bank accounts seized, or a foreclosure lawsuit filed against them
  • Missed payments to a creditor and recognized that their debt load has become unsustainable and will ultimately lead to a judgment and wage garnishment
