Good afternoon. It is not that easy. The reason why I say that is because you first must file a lawsuit against him and prevail and obtain a judgment. Then, you can try an secure the judgment or go after his assets or any money, to satisfy it. In this case, if he is due to get this settlement, he would have the money to pay you and if he refuses after you sue him, you can go after his bank account and try and garnish it, to pay what you are owed.
