I highly endorse this lawyer. I met Mr. Elkhatib years ago when he was teaching a continuing legal education course on foreclosure. I was thoroughly impressed with his knowledge of the factors leading to the national foreclosure crisis. Since then, I have referred many foreclosure defense clients to Mr. Elkhatib. He is always willing to figure out a real solution for every unique homeowner crisis presented to him. The feedback I receive is always very positive. He truly stands out in a sea of attorneys that claim that they can provide foreclosure relief, but actually deliver little, if any help at all.

I have followed Faisal's body of work with great interest since 2012. He has a brilliant legal mind and can quickly discern the real issues of a case including complex mortgage securitization. He is a passionate advocate for homeowners as evidenced by his willingness to take on difficult cases after Summary Judgment has been entered when other attorneys run at the first sign of rain. In the years ahead, many will discover what savvy attorneys already know -- Faisal is a force to be reckoned with. If you are looking for an attorney that deeply cares about your plight, look no further.
