Judgment Enforcement

Our firm has particular expertise in judgment enforcement with an arsenal of other tools that ensure that if judgment debtor has the means to pay, we can almost always find a way to enforce the judgment.  We regularly enforce judgments obtained for our clients by other law firms and paralegals. 

As with all our services, we enforce judgments on a no-recovery, no-fee basis to give access to justice to judgment creditors who run out of money or desire to pay traditional hourly or block fees.  Unfortunately, many creditors are surprised when they win a judgment only to find out that this does not bring them in any money.  They are surprised that the time and fees they invested in “winning the case” just leads to more time and fees to enforce the judgment, fees that may be “throwing good money after bad”.

On a no-recovery, no-fee basis we identify an enforcement avenue then enforce your judgment through garnishing wages, bank accounts or other liquid assets or forcing the sale of real estate using the judicially-supervised sale process we pioneered in Ontario that the court called “an evolution and improvement in the common law” (click here for an article written by Mr. Christensen on the enforcement options published in The Lawyers Weekly).

We have built on that ground-breaking court ruling to develop a legal process for efficiently obtaining court orders against third parties with knowledge of hidden assets and income sources to disclose them.  This enables us to find enforcement avenues that the best asset-tracing services are blocked from finding because of privacy legislation. 

Contingency based collection means that payment for our work is contingent upon our success. If we are unsuccessful in our attempts to collect, you pay no fee.


Being a small business, we haven’t needed a collection agency in quite a few years. After a referral from our accounting firm, we were fortunate enough to make contact with Todd and his team at Christensen Law Firm. In addition to the exceptional and quick recovery work, Todd and his team were always quick to respond either via email or over the phone. They also provided advice and input in re-writing some of the clauses in our service contracts in order to help with future collections if needed. Needless to say, we are extremely pleased. We have passed their information along to some of our associates and will continue to do so in the future. Thanks again for everything.
