INSURANCE SUBROGATION & DEFENSE
We specialize in recovering real and personal property damage throughout the State of Texas. We handle claims of all sizes - from small auto accidents all the way up to large commercial claims involving product liability. Texas has almost eighteen hundred justice, county and district courts - more than any other state - and navigating them is our speciality. We also manage the defense of accident claims on behalf of insurance companies.
DEBT & JUDGMENT COLLECTION
Americans migrating to Texas in the nineteenth century used to carve "GTT" - which stood for "Gone to Texas" - on their doors when they left. It told their creditors that they had escaped from their debts, and not to bother pursuing them to the Lone Star State. For as long as there's been a Texas, it's been difficult to collect a debt (or even a judgment) here. But there are remedies available for creditors who retain experienced attorneys that know the ins and outs of Texas collection law. We can help.
Judges have a limited toolbox in enforcing their civil money judgments. Wage garnishment is prohibited, bank garnishments are prohibitively expensive, and Texas has expansive real and personal property exemptions. However, the Texas Turnover Statute allows judges, upon a creditor's request, to appoint a turnover receiver to enforce the judgment. A turnover receiver can quickly and efficiently find non-exempt assets and work with a judgment debtor to come to the table to find a reasonable path to satisfying the judgment. Our attorneys are dedicated to efficient, thorough, and compassionate administration of turnover receiverships.
The Noack Law Firm is founded on the twin principles of service and knowledge. We exist to serve our clients, and we serve our clients by becoming their go-to experts for Texas legal matters.
Carolyn Noack has practiced insurance subrogation and defense for over twenty years. Since establishing her own firm in 2007, she has represented general and specialty carriers throughout Texas in recovering property loss. With extensive first-chair jury trial experience, she has an unparalleled ability to assess the merits of a case, so that she can effectively determine whether settlement is right for her client.
Craig Noack has over twenty years of experience dedicated to creditor representation in state and bankruptcy courts throughout Texas. Craig spent over eleven years in-house with some of the largest specialty finance companies in the U.S., and managed nationwide legal collections for a publicly-traded company. Twice, he's built legal collections departments from scratch that met or exceeded all financial models within the first year. He is a recognized expert on Texas collections law, as well as the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and related statutes.
Financial Account Holds
If you have reached this site because funds in a financial account have been seized, please read below.
Your accounts have been frozen because you or another account holder was sued, a judgment was obtained, and the judgment creditor requested a court-appointed receiver to enforce the judgment. THE RECEIVER WAS NOT INVOLVED IN NOTIFYING YOU ABOUT THE LAWSUIT OR OBTAINING THE JUDGMENT AGAINST YOU. WE DO NOT REPRESENT THE CREDITOR. All notices in the lawsuit (service of process and court judgment notices) occurred prior to our appointment. JUDGMENTS DO NOT APPEAR ON CREDIT REPORTS AND LAST FOR TEN YEARS. The debt or matter underlying the judgment may have fallen off your credit report, but as long as the judgment is valid, it may be enforced.
Our office provides the judgment and order of appointment to every defendant after verifying their identity. This is necessary to avoid the improper disclosure of sensitive information to third parties.
We understand that a bank freeze can be very frustrating. It results in many defendants calling us repeatedly throughout the process, which in turn creates a very high call volume. The outcome of your situation is heavily fact-dependent, and we must look at each situation to determine how it can be resolved.
The fastest path to releasing your bank account is to visit our dedicated receivership website at www.texasreceiver.org. If you fully complete the online process and provide information as required by the court order, you will be able to download the court documents and will be automatically placed into a call queue to be contacted as soon as we can verify details with your financial institution. This typically occurs within one to two business days. There is no faster process for this to occur.
If the online process does not work for you, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, the name(s) of any joint account holder, the name of the bank, a call-back number, and the times you are available for a return call. We have several people monitoring this email address and will return your call as soon as possible. If you call our office at (210) 963-5733 during normal business hours and are unable to reach a representative, please leave a detailed message with the same information. Our messages are checked constantly and compiled into a return call list. Once your identity has been confirmed, an email will be sent to you with the relevant court documents and a link to a form that you may complete in order to resolve the judgment.
