Lucy Tufts represented me in an extremely complex case involving mortgage fraud on the part of my previous attorney, who converted the payoff money from the new lender to his own personal account and failed to pay the previous lender the funds due. The net result left me holding two mortgages on the same property, with threats of foreclosure and numerous acts of intimidation from the bank holding both mortgages.
Ms. Tufts successfully negotiated a stay of action on the part of the bank while seeking recourse through the courts in a vain attempt to collect the monies due.Further research on the part of Ms. Tufts revealed that the bank offering me a new loan had failed in several respects to follow standard banking procedures and its own policies in the signing of certain documents at closing and thus had inadvertently contributed to the ensuing fraud and theft of funds that took place.
Ms. Tufts demonstrated considerable skill and legal knowledge in dealing with facts as they occurred. As a legal strategist she is brilliant. As an adversary to opposing attorneys, particularly in depositions, she was courageous and did not retreat from heated dialogue from opposing counsel. At the end of the day, the original lender paid off the previous mortgage and offered me another mortgage for the same term and interest rate as before. In addition, Ms. Tufts negotiated a significant amount from the bank for damages, and obtained a $2,000,000 non-dischargeable in bankruptcy judgement against the attorney who defrauded me.
Ms. Tufts was at all times patient in explaining complex legal issues and strategies, was consistently available to me and prompt in returning all telephone calls, and often worked on my case over weekends and holidays. i can only describe Ms. Tufts services in superlatives and recommend her legal services without heitation.
