Our bank really needs some ideas for dealing with what we call a "rogue" law firm that is serving bundles of hundreds of garnishment writs at a time on us. Needless to say, processing the writs is burdensome and disruptive!We contacted the law firm, and learned that they are going to be serving over 2000 on our bank by the end of the year. They are all blind attachments, so it is obvious the firm has no idea where it may find accounts, so they are blanketing the area with garnishment orders. In the last 500 writs we processed, we identified fewer than 10 accounts in our bank.Is there anything we can do to get the firm to "call off the dogs"?
