For more than a decade, Warner & Scheuerman has doggedly pursued judgment debtors on our behalf. In cases that appeared hopeless, they have uncovered millions of dollars in hidden assets. Their trial skills have been crucial in sustaining judgments that judgment debtors have sought to vacate. Warner & Scheuerman is highly skilled in the art of negotiating with a judgment debtor threatening bankruptcy so as to maximize recovery. They can also handle the matter if the judgment debtor does file for bankruptcy. Our FLSA clients, mostly workers for restaurants, dry cleaners, construction companies, and other businesses, deprived of their lawful wages, have obtained substantial “justice” with the help of Warner & Scheuerman. I have been recommending them for years and am proud to do so!
After a painstakingly thorough investigation, which left no stone unturned, Warner & Scheuerman found more than half a million dollars hidden in a jointly owned brokerage account. Over the course of two years, the firm successfully showed that the account belonged to the judgment debtor and not its nominal owner. They utilized turnover proceedings, multiple depositions, and superbly briefed motion practice to obtain a substantial recovery for our clients against big-firm opposition. We use Warner & Scheuerman consistently for our judgment collections. Their responsiveness to our phone calls and emails is virtually immediate. We cannot recommend them highly enough.
