The answer to this question is that I don't hand out Participation Trophies and here is what I mean.

I doubt you will receive an answer to this question; at least not one telling you the path to getting the judgement paid. First of all there isn't enough information to know if this is an actual "judgment" so it's impossible to figure out how to proceed.

Second, why should lawyers who aren't getting paid direct the lawyer who is getting paid about how to secure payment and then get paid? And they shouldn't because that's not how the real world operates.

The mistake your lawyer is making is not securing co-counsel who can help think through the problem and ultimately to satisfy the client's legal award. Ask you lawyer to take on co-counsel that's been around a time of two. Good luck with your case and if my office can assist you contact Barbara and set an appointment.
