About me


Edward M. Shahady has been an attorney licensed to practice in two (2) states for over twenty (20) years.






He concentrates in the areas of Commercial Litigation, Real Estate, Business, Mortgage Foreclosure and Bankruptcy.



He has litigated hundreds of trials, representing all parties – Plaintiffs and Defendants, with verdicts totaling millions of dollars.



He has handled thousands of Real Estate Closings, both Residential and Commercial, representing all parties – Banks, Buyers, and Sellers.



He has handled hundreds of Mortgage Foreclosures, representing all parties – Banks, Homeowners and 3rd party claimants.



He has represented numerous businesses regarding start-up, litigation and business disputes, and acquisition of intangible assets, personal property and real estate.



He has owned and operated numerous businesses related to his areas of practice, including a Mortgage Bank, a Land Development Company, a Credit Card Processing Company, and numerous Title Insurance Agencies, both independent and affiliated.





For four (4) years, from 2007 to 2011, Mr. Shahady worked as a Foreclosure Attorney in South Florida, representing only Banks.  In 2011, he switched sides to represent Homeowners defending their homes from Foreclosure. 



Mr. Shahady is one of very few Foreclosure Defense Attorneys who also has experience representing Banks.  In fact, he still maintains close relationships with many current Bank Attorneys.  Understanding the nuances of the Bank - Attorney relationship can often make the difference between winning and losing a Foreclosure case.  



In addition, because many Mortgage Foreclosure cases are document sensitive, Mr. Shahady’ s extensive experience with the preparation and review of real estate closing documents gives him a competitive edge when defending a Mortgage Foreclosure cases. 



Mr. Shahady never lost a Mortgage Foreclosure Trial as a Bank Attorney.



Mr. Shahady has won numerous Mortgage Foreclosure Trials against Banks, resulting in an involuntary dismissal of the Bank's case against the Homeowner.
