BEST ATTY. EVER ON THIS PLANET....ok, for me...he is the most honest, knowledgable, caring, to the point Bankruptcy & Foreclosure Defense atty. This man is the real deal. Look him up, Google his name..the info he provides speaks to his knowledge and compassion for those of us who know so little. You will NOT be dissapointed.

Battling the banking oligarchs is challenging; especially since they control the issuance of currency & credit. Steve understands the dynamics of the banking/mortgage system and delivered beyond expectations. We are still in the arena with the bank, working to save our home from foreclosure. My wife and I are confident that Steve's expertise far exceeds that of the standard foreclosure defense firms we've researched. Steve was the only attorney I've spoken with that knew more about securitization fraud than I did.

Steve C. Vondran, his assistant Lisa and the entire firm in all offices are simply exceptional. My family and I experienced a severe medical hardship due medical malpractice and that did cause financial stress for many years. In which predatory lenders took advantage of us on our home purchase. Steve represented us in all aspects and was able to build traction with the companies and predatory parties that took advantage of us and eventually win and bring a viable solution that was positive for all involved. My family and I respect him and his law firm, he is not afraid to take on a larger entity and has a vast network in the financial and real estate marketplace. We highly recommend you speak and retain Mr. Vondran and his firm to represent in your specific situation, you will not be dissapointed. They will fight to the end and do all they can to find a way to bring you and your family a solution, if at all possible.

The Law Offices of Steve C Vondran provide excellent, honest service at a fair rate. Steve and his staff execute at a very high level and I recommend them with any DRE related license issues.

After losing two investment properties, and holding on to dear life for my residential property, and after having been TAKEN ...BIG TIME by another "mortgage fraud" attorney, I was giving up hope in ever finding any trustworthy and knowledgable attorney to fight against and expose the FRAUD by CHASE BANK, who in my case, acquired these loans from Wamu, and then immediately tried to FORECLOSE on them, once we tried to get out of our "toxic loan/adjustable". CHASE had already "STOLEN" my "cash cow" investement property, even after we had all of the financials to prove we could keep the property. No matter, CHASE was on a one track mission to FORECLOSE....PERIOD!~One day, while researching on the Internet, and after having spent $4000 on another attorney, who did nothing to save my properties....I stumbled upon Steve, in a Fox News mortgage fraud news clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pZD53-LzTA
My story was very similiar to this woman Steve was representing, except that my husband and I, were TOLD by Chase Bank to "go late 3 months", ON PURPOSE in order to be considered for a "hardship loan", because we were trying to get our of the "adjustable loan" we got into. We were CURRENT, on our mortgages, but CHASE couldn't help us "refi" out of our bad loan, unless we decided to follow their STUPID POLICY to "go late". Long story short, my husband and I IMMEDIATELY contacted Steve at his website : http://www.attorneysteve.net/
and retained him. His price was NOT off the chart. I felt it was fair and alot less expensive than what I had already paid to another attorney that did nothing. Steve was, and IS, professional, compassionate...and MOST OF ALL....SMART SMART SMART!!! He listened and then, based on his background knowledge, not only in the area of real estate, but in the mortgage industry itself, came up with a GOLDEN GAME PLAN....one that I NEVER WOULD HAVE EVER CONSIDERED, to possibly "smoke out" the crooks. Let me tell you.....it SAVED MY RESIDENTIAL HOME.....and as of now, A YEAR LATER, my family of seven, which includes my senior father, and very ill husband, are SAFE FROM THE CLAWS of the "servicer's" who were "wolves in sheep's clothing". Steve was able to create a "judicial foreclosure", in a "non judicial state" (CA)....with his very clever stratedgy....I can't give out all the "secrets", but you will NOT BE DISSAPOINTED if you retain this lawyer. Our personal victory and it's outcome made up for the lost investment property Chase "stole".
By the way, I'm not being paid to say this...I'm not an employee of Mr. Vondran's.....I am a very satisfied client, and really, all you have to do is Google Steve's name, and you will discover all of his videos, about the different mortgage fraud scenarios, based on some cases, and some just on his knowledge base, and as you listen, you realize this attorney REALLY KNOWS his stuff!!! One last thought...and God as my witness, I felt that what my husband and I paid to retain Steve was LESS than what I felt was commensurate with the hours he labored over this case, and all of the case knowledge he reviewed to give our case an "even playing field". If my husband and I had more money, we would have HAPPILY paid Steve MORE MORE MORE, even if we had lost this case. My husband and I enjoyed working with Steve and his office staff, because they were very personally interested, in how things were going emotionally on the home front. It was like working with a family member, who just happened to be an attorney.

I have hired attorney Steve twice now and both times he has come through with shining results. He is easy to talk to and knows what he is doing. He'll even make you laugh from time to time...he's not that "stuffy shirt" type attorney.

I have worked with Steve for close to 5 years. Steve has demonstrated one of a kind in-depth knowledge and legal prowess in his trade.
Steve is very thorough and extremely detail oriented. I have referred numerous clients to him, all of which have thanked me for the introduction. His results speak volumes. I firmly believe that he is the most honest, caring and competent attorney around.
I would strongly reccomend Steve to anybody without hesitation.

He took my case when no one else would, 5 attorneys turned me down, saying I could not win, ethics were on my side, but the law was not. A friend read about Steve in the SF Chronicle and told me to call him. Steve felt differently, he said what the financial institution did was wrong and he would fight for me, he couldn't promise we'd win because the law really wasn't on my side, but he'd give it his full effort. He and Lisa did indeed and in the end, I got a fair settlement. It took time, but I had someone on my side working hard to help me. It was much more than I had hoped for after being turned down so many times. He works hard for his clients and doesn't give up. He's not afraid of the giant, high powered, arrogant law firms that represent the large financial institutions and he's beating them. I thought his fees were fair, not cheap, but less expensive than many other lawyers. Not only did I think he was a great lawyer, but an honest, ethical person, not something one can say about most lawyers.

Steve Vondran is now our attorney of record for all our real estate and business matters. He became our attorney in 2010 when he took a case of ours that other attorneys would not touch and said was hopeless. He took a very complicated case against a big bank and brought us through it to the best possible conclusion. He fee structure is more than fair and what I value most about Steve is he will give you his honest opinion regarding your case. Even if that opinion is to stop fighting. He will not string you along just to line his own pocket. He is an honorable man. Consequently, he is now my "go to guy" with all my legal matters. I highly recommend him.
