I am a board certified real estate attorney who helps people manage their real estate problems - I help people assess their real estate problems and then develop a strategy to solve those problems, whether that be through fighting a foreclosure action, short selling a property or negotiating a "cash for keys" settlement. I consult with property owners who need to make a hard business decision whether or not to keep their deeply underwater property.
I have been practicing real estate law in Sarasota for 16 years. I have seen many people in our city earn a fortune in real estate and lose that same fortune (and then some) as a result of the "Great Recession." It is my experience that most real estate problems result from the "negative equity" in real estate, not from buying property that someone could not afford at the time of purchase.
With the onset of the "Great Recession", I have been working to help people through a foreclosure action with the goal of minimizing the long term impact of owning an underwater property. Our goal is to work though a foreclosure action and work out a settlement with the lender, before the foreclosure has been completed. In doing so, we vigorously defend the foreclosure by making the lender prove all aspects of their case to provide the homeowner with due process of law. Our goal is to allow a sale of the property or other resolution with the lender that also includes a settlement on any deficiency balance.
