Compassionate Lawyers

I understand what you’re going through because I have been there too. Prior to law school, my business failed and I was pushed into foreclosure myself.  I know what banks are willing to do to take people’s homes.  Now I fight for people going through similar situations. 

My law firm has helped over 1,400 people in the past decade with their legal issues, focusing on defending foreclosure without bankruptcy.  We do this by responding to the lawsuit in court and fighting it using the law, while working to find a solution with your lender.

“Just because you are going through a difficult time does not mean the other side gets to walk all over you.  Call us today.”

Litigation requires a comprehensive approach.  Florida foreclosure defense and business litigation means representing people in court, but it also means working directly with the mortgage servicers, other businesses, and their attorneys to get deals done. You can reach us at (786) 625-6862 to discuss your unique situation.

Litigation Defense

Once a foreclosure lawsuit has been filed, the homeowner has 20 days to respond. We step in to defend our clients in court.

Loss Mitigation

Federal law requires mortgage servicers evaluate mortgages for ways to avoid foreclosure. Our services include loss mit.

New Federal Lawsuits

When a mortgage servicer violates the law, it can give rise to a claim under federal law. We regularly file these lawsuits for our clients.
