Foreclosure

For over two decades, our firm has represented lenders, servicers, and investors in residential and commercial foreclosure matters in state and federal courts throughout Ohio. Our foreclosure group is made up of skilled and experienced attorneys and paralegals who will ensure favorable disposition of your cases in a timely manner, while maintaining quality and compliance in accordance with industry standards and regulations.

For over two decades, our firm has represented lenders, servicers, and investors in residential and commercial foreclosure matters in state and federal courts in all 88 counties in Ohio, and now in Wisconsin. Our foreclosure group is made up of skilled and experienced attorneys and paralegals who will ensure favorable disposition of your cases in a timely manner, while maintaining quality and compliance in accordance with industry standards and regulations, such as the CFPB, FDCPA, RESPA, HUD conditions, and precedent.

When you hire us to handle your default portfolio, you will be represented by a law firm, not a factory. We distinguish ourselves by treating our foreclosure cases with the same level of quality and professionalism we provide in all of our practice areas.

We have always been mindful of the importance of prompt resolution of cases and the impact that delays have on our clients’ bottom line. By the same token, we have long recognized that a myopic emphasis on abbreviated “timelines at any cost” does not serve the long or short-term interests of our clients. In our view, our clients deserve more than shortcuts and quick-fixes.

Where appropriate, we emphasize assisting our client in working directly with borrowers in the Loss Mitigation arena. In so doing, we facilitate the transfer of loss mitigation applications and accompanying documents to our clients and underwriters. We maintain lawful communications with the loss mitigation applicants to ensure the transmission of additional and missing documents in a timely manner, so as to maintain compliance within the CFPB guidelines.

Since our inception, we have successfully provided our foreclosure clients with quality legal services at competitive rates. We have worked hard to advance a firm culture that combines effective advocacy, prudent advice, efficiency, innovation, and professionalism. This allows us to both meet or surpass our clients’ expectations and protect and guide them through an ever changing regulatory environment.

Similarly, protecting client data and maintaining transparency are also of paramount importance. Accordingly, we employ strict physical and electronic data security measures that are described on our technology page. Our workflow is managed through our proprietary case management system, which provides clients with real-time access to reports and other case management data. The state-of-the-art tools at our disposal, however, serve to enhance, not take the place of communication and responsiveness.

Our Fees

Our fees are competitive and conform to industry standards. In most instances, the following fee arrangements are available:


1. Collection matters are handled on a contingency fee basis, but an hourly option is available and sometimes requested by clients who hold large balance claims. At a clients’ request, fees for collection matters can be billed on a per item flat fee basis for letters, pleadings, motions, and executions.


2. Uncontested foreclosures and related bankruptcy and eviction matters are most often billed on a flat fee basis according to the Fannie Mae guidelines. Contested matters, and counterclaims, generally require additional flat fee or hourly billing, subject to client approval;


3. Uncontested replevin cases are also handled on a flat fee basis. If the right to recover possession is opposed, the matter is converted to an hourly fee basis, upon client approval;


4. Mechanic’s lien matters are treated the same as replevin cases, unless they involve multiple properties, or otherwise relate to unusual subject matter;


5. Our firm is also pioneering the availability and use of alternative fee arrangements (“AFA’s”) for legal services that have traditionally been billed hourly. The availability of AFA’s is a product of our firm’s ambition to deliver legal services in an efficient and cost-effective manner, and help clients more effectively forecast and contain costs. AFA’s are available for an ever expanding range of matters, including litigation defense, discovery disputes, and appellate practice.
