Contingency Collection Lawyer Guide

I am not a lawyer, I am a judgment referral expert (Judgment Broker). This article is based on my California opinions and observations about retaining a contingency collection lawyer to recover a civil money judgment. Every state has different laws, and this article is not legal advice.

It’s doubtful that I have much to add to that vast sea of information, or misinformation, as the case may be.

I once worked in a law firm that was concerned to the point of obsession about generating new business. “Origination” was the term they used. If one “originated” enough business, he or she became a “rainmaker,” the most valuable of all lawyers, regardless of legal acumen or lack thereof. The rules regarding origination credit were Byzantine and ever-changing. For example, you might think you deserved credit for a new client, only to find out that aged partner had represented an employee of the company on a DUI many years ago. Thus, he was entitled to the
