CTM Legal Group Grabs $8,000 out of contractor’s bank account in Drawn-Out Consumer Fraud Case

Posted by CTM Legal Group | Apr 05, 2024 | 0 Comments

CHICAGO, Ill. — After a two-year legal battle filled with procedural delays, CTM Legal Group has garnished $8,000 directly from a contractor's bank account for a client who was the victim of consumer fraud by a home repair contractor.

The client had paid thousands to the contractor, who then failed to properly finish the work as agreed upon. CTM filed suit for consumer fraud, ultimately obtaining a judgment, but collecting on it proved an arduous process.

"The contractor is taking precisely zero responsibility for its actions. As a result, obtaining compensation for our client has been a long road," said Sarah Albert, the lead CTM attorney who handled the case. "We had to overcome numerous hurdles and difficulties with the court system to capture these funds our client deserved."

Recently, CTM ultimately secured a turnover order allowing $8,000.00 of funds - the entirety of the contractor's bank account - to be seized directly from the bank for the benefit of CTM's client.

"For too long, this contractor had refused to make our client whole after taking their money and not completing the job," Albert said. "The turnover order finally begins to enforce the judgment and deliver some sort of restitution."

CTM Legal Group concentrates in consumer fraud litigation against dishonest contractors, deceptive businesses, and other fraudulent actors. The firm has recovered millions for clients across Illinois.

"Consumer fraud robs ordinary people of their hard-earned money," said managing partner Bill Tasch. "This case underscores our relentless pursuit of bad actors and commitment to fight through every legal roadblock to ultimately deliver justice."
