  • Evan Maxwell Rosen

    Having been in a foreclosure defense attorney since the start of the crisis, I have been able to observe and work with many so called foreclosure defense attorneys. It has been my experience that most of these attorneys lack the experience, ability and the drive to properly represent their clients. I routinely see attorneys at trial throwing in the towel and taking "uncontested" or consent judgments because they either don't know what to do or because they don't care. It's disgraceful. Richard, on the other hand, is an experienced and very knowledgeable litigator on the cutting edge. From the outset, I have collaborated with Richard on numerous ideas and concepts. I have borrowed pleadings from him and because of his fine work, I was successful in suing a bank! Richard is a pioneer in the field and I highly recommend him.

    I have known and respected Richard for several years now and recommend him very highly to all potential clients. A client needs an attorney who is willing to go the distance and never let up....Richard's considerable track record shows that he is just such an attorney. Dedicated, passionate and very, very knowledgeable, he's the guy you want on your side.
