Commercial Foreclosure

I am presently taking commercial mortgage foreclosure defense cases on an hourly basis. Please call for a free initial consultation.

Consumer Foreclosure

I take consumer mortgage related cases involving significant disclosure violations and other serious violations of the Truth in Lending Act that may entitle the consumer to void the mortgage and apply 100% of her payments to the principal balance, as well as recover money damages. Truth in Lending Act claims and defenses can be raised in a mortgage foreclosure case or on their own in federal court.

Foreclosure and Homeowner's Association Attorneys

I am interested in mortgage related cases involving violations of the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and Illinois law by debt collectors and collection attorneys attempting to collect mortgage debts. If you've been subjected to abusive conduct, lies, unfair treatment, harassment, or disclosure of your private financial business to others, you may have a claim under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and be entitled to money damages. Have a look at the (XXXX FDCPA PAGE) to learn more.

Additionally, Illinois attorneys representing homeowners and condominium associations are (XXXX LINK HOMEOWNERS SENSE OF URGENCY PAGE) sending letters to consumers threatening foreclosure if payments are not made within 30 days of receipt of such letters. Such letters violate the FDCPA by threatening to take action the attorney may not legally take. Please contact me for a consultation.
