The Trial is Over...You Won...The Defendant Has to Pay...Right??

I just concluded a three-day jury trial a couple months ago.  My client was the victim of sexual harassment in the workplace.  After over a year of litigation, we took our case to trial.  We won and my client was awarded monetary damages, as well as post-judgment awards constituting reimbursement of attorneys fees and costs incurred.

One problem...the defendant has not paid the judgment.  I am faced with the all-too-common question from my client: they have to pay, right??

As I have explained in earlier blog articles, there are many "phases" to litigation.  Once the trial is concluded and a judgment is entered, that is the conclusion of one phase and the beginning of a new phase: the judgment collection phase.

Griswold Law is unique in that we frequently engage in both phases: 1) litigation through trial and 2) judgment collection.  The defendants in the trial I just completed will soon learn this first hand....
