About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Foreclosure
    I represent clients who are in or facing foreclosure and/or sheriff sale and/or ejectment in Pennsylvania county courts. This is not Bankruptcy. This defense helps put time on the owner's side and allows them the opportunity to evaluate and exercise all of their available options, without being rushed into a short sale, bankruptcy or other irreversible decision.

  2. Real estate
    I have represented buyers, sellers, investors, landlords, tenants, lenders, borrowers, developers, builders and contractors of residential and commercial real estate since 1988.

  3. General practice

Straightforward and great advice!
Mr. Carey was kind enough to contact me on a Sunday afternoon regarding questions I had about a claim that was filed against me. He was patient in listening, and understanding of my situation, and offered some strategies to me in my quest for self defense. I have not met Mr. Carey personally, but he seemed like a very nice knowledgeable guy!

Exceptionally knowledgable
I had a consultation with Attorney Carey regarding an issue with a short sale transaction. He was very thorough, concise and used layman's terms that I could understand. He was extremely patient and allowed me sufficient time to ask any questions I had. He does tons of foreclosure work and is also a licensed Real Estate Broker in Pennsylvania so he was able to cover any and all areas of concern that I had. I would definitively recommend Mr. Carey for any real estate related legal issues.
