Dear Juan, Roxanna, and Rory
I wish there were more words to say thank you, than just THANK YOU. I spoke to 3 different Law firms and each one said the same thing. “You want to keep your house? I can’t promise you that you can keep your house, but I can keep you in it till you sell it and do a deed in lieu of foreclosure, they not doing any refinancing. You pay me $1000 down and 500 monthly and put it on the market, I may be able to get you some moving monies.” I heard this from 3 different attorneys. Your team spoke to me, had me send the foreclosure notice and all documentation to your office. Then called me 3 days later and said we reviewed all your paperwork and feel that you have a strong case and we feel you have a real chance to keep your home. I signed up and you guys kept me up to date on everything,. When the bank pushed, you pushed back, when they gave me ridiculous options, you challenged and in the end I got the fairest deal I every could have every expected. I hadn’t paid my mortgage in 4 years and thought I was done, Your team and only your team saw the practices that helped put me in this situation and rebuild my confidence that I had rights too! There are a lot of legal firms out there just taking money and filing papers, I feel truly blessed to have found a lawyer that really wants to handle and work the cases.
I had been dealing with the bank for a modification for years now, no results. We had been denied every option and foreclosure was at our doorstep, I even had my house listed for short sale with 3 offers to buy it. Devastated about losing the battle, I researched online, called 3 attorneys and they all told me the same thing, that it was too late and that the foreclosure was inevitable. The 4th attorney I found was Rory. I sent an email and immediately, his Legal Assistant Roxi emailed me back and said there was slight hope, but that I had to act right away. After talking on the phone for about an hour, I felt a level of trust and peace with her and I told her, we will try.
My house had been assigned a sale date by the courts, it even sold (bank bought it). Rory and his team advised me that we should appeal the decision, which we won, the judge reversed the decision to give us time to apply for a modification all over again. :)
A year and a half have gone by since that reversal, with paperwork back and forth, updating financials, filing motions to postpone the sale again, even got a denial at mediation with the bank, saying I didn't qualify for any of the programs. After all the anxiety of the unknown, which is very frustrating because we felt like giving up after so long and being pulled around about status, I am excited to say that we have been approved for a Trail Modification!!!!
We fought so long cause we worked very hard to initially purchase the house, put a lot of savings for a down payment and due to extreme hardship circumstances we were not able to keep up with the payments.
We will be forever thankful to Rory (professional and knowledgeable), Roxi (personable, charismatic and professional) and Juan (patient, very on top of his work, wonderful to work with). Words cannot even express my gratitude. Not only did they fight for a modification but got us an affordable monthly payment. We will stay in this house for a long, long time. And truth is, we LOVE our house and everything it means to us, hard work, home for our children, a sense of accomplishment, the place where we have built our family!!!
Once again, THANK YOU!!! "
I contacted Mr. Rohan's office on 11/02/2012 with a sale date of 11/26/2012. I had been trying to work with my bank endlessly with no results. I too first spoke with Mr. Rohan's paralegals. Both of them were very knowledgeable, honest and forthcoming. I was a bit hesitant, but decided to retain his firm anyway. Thank God that I did!! From the beginning I was told it would be impossible to stop my sale date, however, there were additional procedures that could be used to overturn the sale. That is exactly what Mr. Rohan did. We went to court in February and won. Mr. Rohan was able to vacate the judgment and overturn the sale. I have my house back. Obviously there is no case that is too much trouble for Mr. Rohan to take on. Thank you Mr. Rohan! I was blessed the day I met you and your staff.
His law clerks contacted me telling me how great he was and that he could win my case hands down. He doesn't take cases he can't win. My case had Robo signers, Fraud, etc. I sent him $1,000. retainer, signed the contract. Never got copy with his signature. Never spoke with him only law clerks. They wanted me to do all the work for them. Sent out letter that I had to retype due to errors. Then decided my case was too much trouble 1 week before sale date and put in to withdraw. They moved from Valrico to Pembroke Pines and refused to take my calls. Never spoke to Rory Rohan, ever!
