If you mean "dissolved," instead of "disowned," then the LLC itself cannot collect on a judgment against you, because the LLC doesn't exist anymore--it can't do anything. It is possible that a "successor in interest" to the LLC, such as someone who purchased or otherwise acquired its rights and interests, such as the right to enforce this judgment, could still take collections actions against you, but such a successor would have to be able to prove that it legally acquired the right to do this.
If you meant "disowned," then you need to repost your question with additional information.
