About Me

Axsmith Law is one of the only firms successfully litigating against mortgage companies in the District of Columbia. Clients include commercial real estate developers, apartment owners and private homeowners. Axsmith Law has reversed foreclosure sales for clients. 

Mortgage recording and title has become a confusing mess in recent years, leading to complicated issues when trying to sell real estate. For that reason, Axsmith Law also represents buyers at the settlement table, or those just trying to reach the settlement table. 

Not all mortgages are legal, either. Axsmith Law, for a nominal sum, will review your mortgage agreement and HUD-1 to ensure that a client is not saddled with a bad agreement.

Axsmith Law practices in Washington, DC, Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
