Excellency!
Mr Krasker and his team are excellent professionals. Their level of knowledge and customer service exceeded my expectations. Mr. Krasker responded promptly to all our concerns and guided us toward obtaining the best results possible. He took the time to make sure everything was clear by communicating and coordinating with skill and compassion. Mr. Krasker's paralegal, Desiree, is clearly passionate about her role. She went above and beyond to help and to get the job done within the deadline. Thank you so much Mr. Krasker and Desiree, for your hard work and dedication. I sincerely appreciate all your help. I highly recommend Mr Krasker's services to anyone looking for a real estate attorney, and I look forward to working with them again in the future.

Student Loan Consolidation
They have been patient and understanding when we've been frustrated and angry. Mali and David have been the utmost professionals yet kind and gracious. If I lived in Florida I'd probably take them to dinner! Seriously... .if you ever need someone to have your back and get you out of your bad student loan situation please call them! Our debt is now consolidated and they work long hours to get it that way

Widow & & 3 year old son saved from despair
In the Student Loan Department, Mali consolidated my loans into a FEDLOAN program with a $0 monthly payment for one year… and forgiven after 10 years! If not for her I would still be paying my loan off up to the age of 75 (if I was alive!) at the final cost of $175,000! When trying to break free from the Sallie Mae loans 2 years prior, the bank led me into MORE debt. I even tried to offer a payoff after receiving an inheritance when my mother died. They agreed at 1st and then refused a month later. After 10 years in the program Mali has placed my loan, no matter HOW LITTLE I paid monthly…. I am again DEBT FREEEE! Karl, with Credit Brain, told me he could not help me because Mali and George helped me first and I didn’t need his help. Yet it didn’t stop him from giving free advice to a friend whose credit is poor and needed a new work car! ….and he followed up with me a week later! That’s professionalism at its finest! I have worked with all three departments in this firm: George Miller in the mortgage department, Mali and David DePaul in the student loan department, and Karl in the “Credit Repair” Department. If you want to TRY to solve your own problems with the limited knowledge you may have like I did go ahead. I am so blessed that God used this firm to allow my family to mourn our loss of a husband and father, and not our home nor finances! I would have paid them double! Use them! Let them do what they do best…. HELP YOU! Then you’ll see what I mean!

Well worth it!
David DePaul from Paul Krasker Law firm carefully and successfully guided my daughter and myself during the long process of understanding and submitting her student loan forgiveness application. It was time well spent! Last year, my daughter was dedicating more than 50% of her reduced salary to pay her debt. Now, she is happily paying a small, reasonable amount. After her loan forgiveness application was accepted, David has continued to be very quick in responding our questions and proactive in updating our information. I recommend their practice highly, for their thorough knowledge of this somewhat complicated program, that they make easy and available to all. They are just very nice, dedicated professionals.

A Fabulous Job Done
I am very satisfied with the efforts made by the Krasker Law team to get my mortgage modified. After a sudden and catastrophic illness I can no longer work and am disabled and this has been a great help to me for which I am very grateful. My interest rate was decreased to 2% for five years and will be evaluated after that. George Miller and team did a fabulous job at achieving my 2% decrease.

HomeOwners Assistance Division
We are very happy to be back in our home and we are convinced that we would not have received a Modification without your employee's hard work. We were skeptical to try again to get a modification and were actually hiring your firm to have our name removed off the deed. Fabian Silnik convinced us to let your Homeowners Assistance Division Team try to get a modification. We expressed that we had hired other law firms before with no result. George Miller has been working diligently with the servicer to obtain a modification. He has taken the time to answer all of our questions. He has been very kind, patient and personable through this whole ordeal. He has given us excellent customer service, returning our emails and phone calls promptly. He told us that he would try his best to work with Ocwen and was always professional. Most of our contact was with George Miller and occasionally when we were in a panic to have to speak with someone immediately, Nancy was terrific to locate whoever we needed to speak to. She was always polite and helpful whether it was on the phone or in person at your office. We will gladly refer the Paul Krasker Law firm to others.

New Channel 5
Just a note of thanks for all that your firm did to help us with our home loan modification. We were at the point of not knowing or understanding what was going to happen if we didn't make a change to our financial situation. We saw your firm mentioned on News Channel 5 and decided to give you all a call. From the very beginning you were all very informative and honest about what we were facing. We knew that we were in good hands and had every reason to believe that you would help us get the best result possible. You walked us through the process, answered all our questions and made yourselves available whenever we needed to speak with you. While we waited for the final decision, you were consistently letting us know what was happening and made sure we were comfortable and confident that things would go well. In fact, in the end, we achieved a result that was life-changing for us. We were able to stay in our home, feel good about our financial future and feel secure in the knowledge that we had made the best possible decision regarding our family's well-being. I have told both friends and family what a great firm you are to do business with and I would highly recommend your services to anyone who would ask me.

Informed All The Time
We would like to thank you for all of your hard work and it certainly has been a pleasure working with Lisandra Rodriguez. Your firm operates in a very professional manner and we are very happy with your services, although it has been a very long process due to dealing with the bank(s). Your office has kept us informed and has followed-up frequently with the bank(s), as stated. We are coming to the end of our representation with your firm and wrapping things up, and I am sure that process will conclude quickly and smoothly. Thank you again for your help

Patient & Responsive
I would like to reiterate my appreciation for the level of service which you and Tony Licavoli personally provided throughout my case. I consider you both to be incredibly valuable parts of the team which worked on my file. You were helpful, responsive and very patient throughout the process of working with the lender’s counsel. In particular, you played a key role in helping me to obtain essential information as to important developments. Early on, Tony was incredibly helpful in providing crucial guidance related to the Hardest Hit Program’s requirements. I thank you both for your support and professionalism.

Obtaining My Goal
The best decision I made was contacting the Law Office of Paul A. Krasker to assist me in a Mortgage Loan Modification. From the beginning of my relationship with this office in meeting with Fabian to discuss how the firm could assist me in obtaining my goal - a reduced monthly mortgage payment to my numerous calls and communications with George Miller, I always felt that "I was in good hands". The end result was far more than I expected. Not only did my monthly mortgage payment reduce by $700/month but they were able to negotiate a principal forgiveness on my loan in the amount of $151,241.00. In addition, the service that I received from George was exceptional. Any questions or concerns I had were handled promptly and professionally. I would not hesitate to recommend this firm to any of my family or friends that needed assistance. Thank you for all your hard work.

Reduced Principal!
Thanks to the Hardest Hit Program my mortgage is now under control. Every time I thought about how much my house was worth and what I paid for it I felt livid. It was not as if I bought a house that I could not afford, but I was struggling. I bought my house in 2005 when prices were at their highest. Thanks to the Hardest Hit Program I am now paying a more reasonable amount. The firm helped me reduce my principal by $38,000! I greatly appreciate what they have done for me.

You have brought us joy!
We want to thank all of you at Krasker Law for allowing us to look forward to the holidays knowing that we will not be losing our home to foreclosure after all. Like so many others we had financial setbacks during the past few years and also found ourselves severely under water on the mortgage loan to value on our house. We had tried applying for loan modifications ourselves. When our own efforts failed we hired another law firm who promised success. The only thing that happened is we paid money that we already did not have. Admittedly, we were skeptical about Krasker as well; but thanks to the dedication of his team we now have a loan modification that makes our mortgage affordable and are simply waiting for the foreclosure to be officially dismissed. Last Christmas we believed it would be the last that we spent in our home and this year we are celebrating Thanksgiving with special thanks to Fabian Silnik and Mali Martinez for their diligence and perseverance. Mali was especially attentive, always keeping us informed and promptly responding to our questions. Thank you Krasker Law! May the upcoming holidays bring all of you the joy and that you have brought to us.

Highest Recommendation
It is my privilege to recommend the Law Firm of Paul A. Krasker. It is an excellent firm who services I employed to litigate my personal home foreclosure proceedings. Mr. Engvalson, the attorney assigned to my case was very professional and kept me fully informed throughout my legal proceedings. In parallel with my foreclosure case, the firm also provided services to pursue a loan modification. Mali Martinez, the Legal Assistant that was assigned to handle the loan modification, was relentless in obtaining required documents and working with the bank. I have nothing but praise for her efforts. Ms. Martinez also kept me informed throughout the process and I found her services to be more than satisfactory. I am pleased to recommend the Law Firm of Paul A. Krasker. I believe this firm will not only meet but also exceed your expectations.

Professional
The Law Office of Paul A. Krasker, P.A. was nothing BUT PROFFESIONAL, and well exceeded my expectations. The only one regret I have is that I failed to hire them the 1st time I meet with them a year prior. As a widow and stay-at-home mom of a 4 year old, life has been pretty scary. The only place that felt safe was our home. The place where I danced with my Beloved husband in our kitchen, where we had our honeymoon night, and where we raised our son together for the short 3 years we were together. So nothing brought my son and I more comfort than being in our home. With no income, and only a substitute teacher’s salary, George Miller and this firm saved our home and our sanity. I tried to figure it out on my own for MONTHS. I spent my time talking to the mortgage company with little success. My goal was to pay off my mortgage and live on whatever life insurance money was left and then assume the mortgage into my name. The other option was to pay down the mortgage and assume the debt! George Miller and his coworkers knew what needed to be done and how to do it! They lowered my monthly mortgage payment by $1,000; my interest rate went from 6.5% adjustable arm to 2.0%! (My investor said: “That’s not even inflation!”) I did NOT have to assume the mortgage in my name… it’s still in the Estate’s name…. which makes our family DEBT FREEEEEE! In the Student Loan Department, Mali consolidated my loans into a FEDLOAN program with a $0 monthly payment for one year… and up to 10 years! If not for her I would still be paying my loan off up to the age of 75 (if I was alive!) at the final cost of $175,000! When trying to break free from the Sallie Mae loans 2 years prior, the bank led me into MORE debt. I even tried to offer a payoff after receiving an inheritance when my mother died. They agreed at 1st and then refused a month later. After 10 years in the program Mali has placed my loan, no matter HOW LITTLE I paid monthly…. I am again DEBT FREEEE! Karl, with Credit Brain, told me he could not help me because Mali and George helped me first and I didn’t need his help. Yet it didn’t stop him from giving free advice to a friend whose credit is poor and needed a new work car! ….and he followed up with me a week later! That’s professionalism at its finest! I have worked with all three departments in this firm: George Miller in the mortgage department, Mali in the student loan department, and Karl in the “Credit Brain” Department. If you want to TRY to solve your own problems with the limited knowledge you may have like I did go ahead. I am so blessed that God used this firm to allow my family to mourn our loss of a husband and father, and not our home nor finances! I would have paid them double! Use them! Let them do what they do best…. HELP YOU! Then you’ll see what I mean!

Testimonial
Mr. Krasker is a very fine attorney, extremely fair with his fees and truly cares for his clients. The most important thing to him is that his clients are taken care and this is very refreshing. If you are looking for an understanding, fair and knowledgable attorney, I highly recommend Mr. Krasker.

Great Support Team
Once again I would like to thank you and your staff for giving me the opportunity to receive help. I am very appreciative and so thankful for all the help and support you've given me. I can't explain how lucky I feel to have received help during the most troubling time in my life. I am currently getting paperwork together to try to refinance my mortgage and also work on my credit. If I have question this is the firm I would call for help. Thank you for not giving up on me, it gives me hope.

Legal eagle theft
This firm did absolutely nothing except collect money. Really unbelievable that this guy is not in jail. The first review is accurate and the rest must be phony. Their loan modifications don’t happen and the short sales are bought by investors he works with. If you don’t sell to his group they threaten that the bank will seek a default judgment. Nothing that was promised was delivered.

Most dishonorable, inadequate, unprofessional firm ever.
Over the course of a year I found The Law Office of Paul Krasker PA and the staff to be very unprofessional and caused me more harm than good. There were several phone calls and emails that went unanswered, missed court filing dates, and a deposition canceled without an explanation. Even the opposing counsel wrote in a document to the judge that our responses were boiler plate answers. Loan negotiations were discussed but never happened. Kinley Engvalson, Esquire, my assigned attorney, refused to ask for a continuance after my loan was sold to another mortgage company. This resulted in the judge to set a sale date. I had to send a completed modification package myself, without the help or advise of my paid for attorney, Mr. Kinley Engvalson. The result was to either lose our family home of 16 years or accept a bad loan modification with an additional $50,000 added onto the mortgage and to start over with an extra $350 ever month for the next 30-years. When I asked them to remove themselves as my council, the firm asked me to sign a release document disallowing me to pursue legal action against Paul A. Krasker, PA. When I did not sign the document right away, I was asked to submit my current months payment to them. That is extortion as far as I am concerned. Like I said, most dishonorable, inadequate, unprofessional firm ever. To this date I am still working on resolving issues I hired Krasker Law firm to handle starting back in April of 2016.
