Is There a Default Judgment Against You?
Learn How to Get a Connecticut Default Judgment Vacated
If a creditor obtains a default Judgment against you, the consequences
can be disastrous. They can include, but are not limited to, wage garnishments,
bank executions, and liens on real property. At The Woods Law Firm, LLC,
we can protect your rights during this challenging and difficult financial battle.
The Woods Law Firm, LLC has been successful in getting numerous Judgments
vacated for our clients. Some of our victories include:
Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center v. Client (Superior Court of Connecticut, Rockville, 2018): Saint Francis Hospital
and Medical Center obtained a default Judgment against our client for
over $19,000. The client never received the Writ, Summons and Complaint,
and, because he had relocated out-of-state, was unaware of the action
against him. The Woods Law Firm, LLC identified deficiencies with the
Return of Service and was successful in getting the Judgment opened and
vacated, thereby allowing the client to defend the action.

Reasons for Default Judgments
There may be a variety of reasons why a default Judgment has been entered
in a case. Defaults, and, ultimately default judgments, can be entered
for failing to file an appearance, failing to file a pleading, failing
to respond to discovery, or failing to appear at a court conference. Under
Connecticut law, there is generally only 120 days to open and vacate a
default judgment. If a default judgment has entered against you, contact
