Claim Your Free Book:  What's Keeping You Up At Night? An Attorney's Practical Approach to Real Estate Nightmares (See Link Below)

I love to demystify complicated real estate and financial legal concepts and unwind problems for people who are frustrated with incompetent or dismissive real estate or banking "professionals." 

I absolutely hate when people place themselves at a legal disadvantage -they find themselves spinning their wheels, "stuck" when they unknowingly rely on outdated or impractical information and forms found off the "internet."  Nothing is worse than when people unwittingly base their decisions off of the "outside chatter" of people they hardly  know, (or worse,  friends or family members) who are NOT licensed attorneys and have no "skin in the game."

For the above reasons, I actively write, publish and create books, articles, podcasts, slide presentations and newsletters -all designed to simplify complicated legal concepts related to  real estate and finance.   I strive to make these user -friendly and practical legal resources and so that a person with legal concerns can understand how to reduce their legal liability and financial exposure in the real estate and debt arenas.  

 

I am a hands-on real estate and finance attorney with over 27 years of experience. I successfully represent clients with issues concerning defaulted loans, mortgage servicing, rehabilitative real estate/loan workouts, land contracts, residential and commercial leases along with and complex loss mitigation for both commercial and residential loans. 

As a "former bank insider" and real estate lawyer, I am a seasoned veteran in commercial and residential loan servicing and property disposition. I've been responsible for the well over a billion dollars in property transactions and have a unique practical working knowledge of both federal and state lending and servicing laws.

I maintain a powerful network of expert attorneys, real estate, banking and / or financial executives with both regional and national reach. I believe in providing quality communication, affordable pricing, and realistic options for resolving nagging legal issues.

Results Driven - High Verbal IQ & Intelligent
I thought the process was very respectful and much less intimidating and stressful than I know would have been the case had we not followed the collaborative approach. It also allowed us to reach a point of consensus vs. feeling overwhelmed. Thank-you for introducing me to the collaborative approach!!!

Contract problems/developer
Attorney Soble and his staff were courteous and promptly returned my calls. Attorney Soble was thourough in his explanations when addressing my concerns. I never felt rushed, only that he cared to answer my questions to the best of his ability with limited information. I was given ample time.

Highly Recommend
I contacted David Soble for advice regarding a legal matter and he was both responsive (calling me back after hours) and helpful. As it turned out, I didn't require his services, but he contacted me for a follow up call to make sure that my legal issue had been resolved and offered to help should I need his services in the future. His office staff was also extremely courteous and responsive. I would definitely contact him should I require legal assistance in the state of Michigan.

Excellent real Estate Attorney
I have been a practicing attorney for over 40 years in the District of Columbia. During this time period, I have had occasion to work with many attorneys on a multitude of legal issues. I feel extremely fortunate to have had Mr. Soble represent our family in a recent real estate matter in the Ann Arbor area of Michigan. Prior to the retention of Mr. Soble, I did extensive research on real estate attorneys in Eastern Michigan. I believe that Mr. Soble has all the qualities one could hope for in an attorney. I found him to be experienced, fair, trustworthy, readily available, and extremely professional. He was dedicated to our case, very reasonable with his fees, and he achieved an excellent settlement for our family—and I attribute this latter development to be a result of his superior negotiating skills. We will be calling on Mr. Soble and his law firm for all our future real estate legal services in this area. Highly recommended!

Outstanding service and quick resolution
David did an outstanding job of resolving my case very quickly and without having to go to court. From the initial phone call, he was very friendly, professional and made me feel like he was on my side. During our initial consultation, he very clearly explained the process, what to expect, and instilled a sense of confidence that my case would be resolved very quickly. David delivered on all accounts and even faster than I expected. I will be reaching out to him for all matters related to real estate legal advice and will be recommending him to anybody I know who also may be in need of expert legal advice.

Reverse Mortgage question
Helped me think about it more from the standpoint of equity remaining in the home.
Response from David Soble December 13, 2017
Reverse mortgages still require vigilance from seniors. They may work like an annuity, but homeowners still have financial obligations under the mortgage that can place their property in jeopardy. Good luck.

Excellent lawyer and great team to work with.
David was extremely professional and personable from start to finish. I set up an appointment via online and was taken care of and listened to when I went in. I explained my situation, he told me what he thought would be the best course of action. He didn't try to get me into any situations that I didn't need to be in from the start, e.g. taking my issue straight to litigation. David tries to get things handled before it even gets to that point. When there was a back and forth happening between he and those the issue pertained to, I was kept in the loop and made aware as to how to proceed at each progressing step. Even when I figured the issue was pretty much done and all set, David still contacted me to see how things were and if there was anything else that needed to be done. I completely recommend David and the team at Proven Resource LLC and they will be my go-to if the need ever arises again.

Came to our rescue!
We found David through a dear friend of ours. He was very generous with his time, we explained our situation to him, and he worked out a plan with the other parties that we could be comfortable with. He’s very knowledgeable and really easy to work with. we couldn’t be happier with the results. Thanks so much, David!

Used Avvo --Confirmed he's more than credible
This may sound strange - but finding David was a gift. It was difficult sorting through real estate 'pros' I'm located in Texas and I have three rental buildings outside Detroit. David was referred to me by a broker but I also used Avvo to check into his credentials. In the end there is no accounting for experience. He brings the complete package for the midsize real estate investor.
