I would use their services again!
I would use their services again! I found this company during an internet search and the reviews were really good. I often question reviews that seem too good to be true but Paradigm lived up to their reviews. Although the process took a very long time, I believe mortgage companies are difficult to maneuver. However, Paradigm staff were aware of all the mortgage company tactics and worked diligently to resolve my issue. They were also very fair with their charges!

Saved my home from foreclosure
My family and I hired Ms. Parikh to help save our home from foreclosure. We fell on hard times and tried as best as we could to keep up with our mortgage payments, but ultimately, too many were missed and lender (Wells Fargo) turned the mortgage back over to the creditor (Bank of America). Our situation was unique because we still had equity in our property and there was no way we going to walk away without a fight. In came Ms. Parikh and her team. The market was doing well in our area, and we knew we could get the property sold pretty quick if given some extra time. Ms. Parikh worked with the creditor on our behalf and was able to negotiate terms that were favorable to us. She is a superb attorney and extremely experienced. No stone goes unturned and there was always a plan b or c, if the first didn’t work out. We were able to get the property to close, paid back the entire balance of our mortgage, walk away with equity and most importantly, no foreclosure sale. Our family is beyond grateful for everything Ms. Parikh and her team have done. We got the results we wanted and could not be happier! Thank you!

Professional, Proactive, Effective & Great Communication!
Paradigm Law comes with our highest recommendation. We'd give 10 stars if we could. Leaving a home you've loved and lived in for many years is hard. Extreme downsizing magnifies the pain. Relocating across country doubles-down on it! Our timeline didn't leave much room physically or emotionally to work through all the details, so we hired a team of pros to help. At first, everything seemed to be going fine until suddenly and alarmingly one day it wasn't. All the parties started to pull in different directions and conflicting agendas were speedily escalating out of control. To salvage the situation and our sanity, we hired Paradigm Law to pull everyone back on track. There aren't sufficient words to describe our gratitude that Paradigm Law was easy to engage, and that they immediately demonstrated their value. They never added to our worries. We didn't need to over-explain, prod or manage them, or wonder what was happening. They were friendly, professional and effective while communicating early and often. In no time at all they'd accomplished everything we’d hoped for. There were never any mystery methods, unexplained processes or unfathomable billing practices. Paradigm Law just simply came through for us. I would wish no one to experience what we did but if you do, call Paradigm Law. You’ll be glad you did.

Helped me avoid Foreclosure
Ms. Parikh and her staff saved my home from foreclosure. The mortgage company had already set a date for the foreclosure when I contacted Ms. Parikh for help with saving my home. I knew that it was a long shot and I was not expecting a miracle and yet that's what happened. After many sleepless nights and tears Ms. Parikh worked with the mortgage company on my behalf and saved my home from foreclosure. I had moved most of my belongings from my home with the exception of my bed and dinning room table and a few other items when I received word that my home was no longer going to be foreclosed on. She and her staff were very professional and were there with me throughout the whole process. I am very grateful for all of her hard work and dedication that went into helping me avoid foreclosure.

Loan mediation
I hired Shikha Parike two years ago as my attorney. It was a complicated case as I was a recent widow and wanted to keep my property. Everyone in her group demonstrated positive human relations and were easy to work with. The group under herleadership worked diligently to attain my goal. After mitigation and several foreclosure attempts by the bank her team successfully completed a mediation agreement. The property is now mine and I would strongly recommend her. She is extremely competent and an expert in her field.

Negotiated a Confidential Settlement Agreement with an Unwilling Mortgage Broker (and Bank)
My attorney, Shikha Parikh, fought tireless on my behalf, over the period of several years, to prevent JP Morgan Chase Bank, the most notorious foreclosure instigator in the entire country, to negotiate a settlement agreement. Chase used every tactic and resource available to them over the course of several years to force an unwanted foreclosure and liability, but Shikha was uncompromising, relentless, and most of all, knowledgeable and professional! She kept me informed throughout the process, was always available and responsive if I had questions, and her rates were very reasonable as well. I highly recommend Paradigm Law!

Hello, my name is Elvis Cruz and i can sincerly say that Shikha and her staff are some real professionals who know what they are doing, I just want to say that Shikha is truly an angel sent from above. Nobody wanted to help me resolve my case due to the fact that it was so complicated but her perfesionalism was so great that i was able to put my trust in her and her staff. Shihka gave me hope and now thanks to her a have a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I would highly recomend Shikha to anyone who feels like there problem has no solution.

Hire This Professional Team Now!
Initially worked directly with banks "loss mitigation" team. The lost mitigation team's job is to secure your home, not save it. They provided bad advice while losing documents throughout the process. Avoid doing this alone and Hire Paradigm Law. They stopped our near foreclosure; assisted with our short sale, and kept the bank honest for once. The team is professionals, working to ensure your family is protected. I'd recommend the entire team to anyone. Do yourself a favor and invest the money in yourself--hire the Paradigm team. Really glad we did. Thanks Shikha, Julie, and Ann for everything!

The best short sale lawyer who gets the job done
Shikha was great from the start and very experienced. The short sale of our Maryland house was in limbo and the bank kept giving us a hard time for over 2 years. Shikha reassured us regularly and gave us updates. Our previous short sale law firm in Maryland was slow and terribly inefficient. A couple of other short sale law firms that we contacted before Paradigm Law gave us zero chances of success. When Shikha took over, she was very proactive and it was obvious that she's skilled with short sales and understands the process thoroughly to help homeowners with their situation. Within a few months, we closed the short sale of our house! We are thankful to Shikha for her role in completing the short sale and highly recommend her services to anyone who is undergoing a short sale.

Won my house back!!!
My story started out with four rounds of a short sale process, which left me drained and frustrated. I turned to Shikha and her team to assist me with my home. Initially, I contacted Shikha to pursue a case against the mortgage due to the negligence. I explained that I was recently divorced from a 15-year marriage and filed bankruptcy during the process. I also shared that I desired to remain in my home with my 14-year-old daughter (the house she grew up in). Shortly after speaking with Shikha, she provided me with options that I never knew I had. She gave me hope that I could keep my home. Her team quickly contacted the mortgage company to start the modification process. After providing the bank with everything required, a roadblock happen! The mortgage company SOLD my loan in the MIDDLE of our modification review. Shikha quickly shifted the team’s energy to the new mortgage company and I was able to modify my home, which REDUCED my mortgage by hundreds of dollars! I am so grateful for her knowledge and services. Shikha is pleasant and swift! She does EXACTLY what she says she can do…and she gets it done!

Amazing lawyer!
Shikha is the best there is. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows the process. During a very stressful short sale, she was very reassuring and understanding while always able to answer any question with poise. I would highly recommend her and her team to anyone!

Superb and Knowledgeable Representation
We hired Shikha twice for matters relating to foreclosure and we couldn't have been more pleased. During particularly stressful times, she was able to bring us peace of mind with her competence and supreme negotiating tactics. Don't waste time with those who advertise quick and easy solutions to foreclosure. Shikha will take the time to sit with you, understand your circumstances and objectives, and do her very best to help you, as she did us. If you're reading this Shikha, thank you again.

Short Sale
Shikha was instrumental in the closing process of my home. She was able to submit and get all the proper paper back and forth to the mortgage company quickly. She knew exactly what to do throughout the entire process which made my life much easier by not having to worry. I would highly recommend her to others.

Excellent, responsive and capable
Shikha Parikh and her team led us to a successful short sale! We are 3,000 miles away and are dealing with a medical hardship. Having someone capable on our side who understood short sales, our rights, and how to negotiate with the bank was absolutely priceless. Shikha was responsive, knowledgeable, encouraging, and on top of things. We are so grateful for all their hard work and attention to our situation.

Wells Fargo short sale
Shikha Parikh represented us to Wells Fargo in an extended and potentially awkward short sale negotiation. We were deeply underwater on our mortgage for a residence in Deale, Maryland. We had attempted to sell the property for several years, without success. With Shikha's good help we came to an acceptable agreement with Wells Fargo and were at last freed from a burdensome financial obligation.

Very professional and goes above and beyond to ensure client has top notch representation
Ms. Parikh is an attorney of integrity and honor. She reviewed my contract, advised me of what to do and went far above the normal level of service. I would strongly encourage anyone to seek her advice. I am so impressed with her level of service and attention to detail that I would consult her first for any legal issue and follow her recommendation. She even offered to email the party I had the contract dispute with to ensure the required notice was received in the required timeframe. If I had more adjectives to show my appreciation, I would surely use them. Simply amazing in every area.

Our experience with Shikha and her practice was nothing short of amazing. From the very beginning to the very end, she and her legal team were on top of things helping us get to a resolution.

"As a family lawyer, I have referred several divorcing clients to Shikha, who helped structure a ‘short sale’ of their homes for less than the mortgage balance, and thereby avoided their liability for the mortgage deficiency. Shikha conveys a cheerful confidence that puts clients at ease as she manages the arcane foreclosure process."
