In Orange County Superior Court, Central Justice Center, Ardent’s attorneys Hubert Kuo and Alexander Chang successfully obtained a difficult prejudgment writ of attachment order in the amount of $1,413,484 against a debtor who failed to honor a promissory note.
A writ of attachment is a court order to “attach” or seize an asset to satisfy a judgment. Â A prejudgment writ of attachment may be used to freeze assets of a defendant while a legal action is pending. “Typically, prejudgment writ of attachments are difficult to obtain as judges typically prefer to decide cases on the merits after a full presentation of the evidence before a judge or jury trial. Â In rare cases, such as this, it is a vindication to our client that we can obtain the writ and hopefully use it to gain leverage against the defendant who has defaulted on his obligations to our client.” – quoted Partner Hubert Kuo.Â
