Our Work

Aggressive Foreclosure Defense

We fight tooth and nail to stop the bank from foreclosing on your home.

Auto Accident Compensation Recovery

We brawl with the insurance companies to get you the money you deserve.



When it comes to saving a home from foreclosure, the most responsible and prudent advice I can give someone who is realistically looking to keep their home is simple; apply for a loan modification and do it NOW! While I certainly consider our firm to be one of the most aggressive and knowledgeable defense firms in Central Florida, obtaining 7 free homes in just the last year alone, more often than not, simply defending a case won’t ultimately result in you retaining the home for the long haul. While we defend the foreclosure case, we highly advise that YOU the borrower, SIMULTANEOUSLY begin working with the bank to obtain a more affordable payment plan. i.e. a loan modification. It’s a two prong strategy for home retention: we aggressively defend against the bank’s attorneys in the courtroom, while you apply for loan modification directly with the bank’s reps. Since a loan modification can take several months to be reviewed by the bank, the ideal time to do this is early on in the litigation process when there are no trials or major hearings on the horizon. There’s nothing more stressful for a client than trying to get a loan mod with a trial one month away. Unfortunately, we get calls from potential clients that have other attorneys that tell us they have a trial coming up in 3 weeks and they want to know what if anything they can do to save the house. Sadly, their previous attorneys did them a major disservice by failing to timely inform the client they could potentially obtain a loan modification and keep the home. Most of the time, these potential clients hear this news for the first time after calling us.

Banks are under no obligation to give you a loan mod but if you do not try, then you don’t have a chance. If you’re in home foreclosure, regardless of how far along your case is, and you’re serious about keeping your home, APPLY FOR A LOAN MOD IMMEDIATELY! This is going to take some time…


Serious About Keeping Your Home? Attempt a Loan Modification Sooner Rather Than Later!

So I was sitting in Court today at yet another exciting Case Management Conference (interpret as: a house-keeping hearing where the Court will do anything within its power to tie up any loose ends and push your case to trial) when something subtle, yet crucial to a foreclosure defense case occurred. However, before I delve into what transpired, let me start by giving some background info on what typically takes place at these ever-present CMC hearings. Often times, the Order setting the Case Management Conference will state something to the effect of, “ALL pending motions shall be heard at Case Management Conference.” What this means simply is that if you have any outstanding motions, you must be prepared to argue each and every one of them at that CMC. Why would the Court add this language you ask? It’s simple, that way the Court may dispose of any procedural hurdles that may prevent the Court from setting the case for trial. One example of such a hurdle would be a Motion to Dismiss (read our prior blogs on when a case is “At Issue”).  If there’s a pending Motion to Dismiss, the case is clearly not “at issue” under FL Rule of Civil Procedure 1.440 and the Court is precluded from setting the case for trial, despite their most zealous efforts. The reason it’s important to delay a trial is due to the fact that the sooner a trial is set, the less time you could potentially have left in YOUR home. In other words, the longer we can prevent trials, the more guaranteed time you have left in YOUR home; which is clearly the goal.

Now that you understand what generally transpires at your typical CMC, lets get into what happened today and why it’s imperative to have a competent attorney representing you in your foreclosure defense every step of the way. Today’s CMC started with opposing counsel and myself informing the Court that the case was not at issue and could not be set for trial due to the still pending Motion to Dismiss that would need to be set for a future hearing.

The Freedom Law Firm, it’s a strong name with an even stronger meaning. However, our firm didn’t choose our name simply because it’s catchy or that we wanted to plaster it across some advertising billboard. We chose the name because we really do want to provide you FREEDOM. Freedom from the bank calling or writing you threatening letters reminding you how much you owe them. Freedom in the form of a loan modification that you obtained which helps you to pay a reasonable monthly mortgage and keep your home, and still have some money left over to spend on your family and other necessities. Last but not least, freedom from the fear and stress of constantly worrying that the bank can swoop in at anytime and leave you and your family on the street.

Our goal is to strategically and aggressively advocate for your rights in order to provide you these Freedoms, both financial and emotional. Every month we strive to achieve this goal in one form or another by having cases dismissed, final judgments defeated and deficiency waivers obtained. Remember while, we aggressively fight the banks’ attorneys and defend your case in the Courtroom, it is important that you are taking proactive steps towards keeping your home as well!

When a Different Lender Tries to Foreclose…

MERS or MERSCORP: The Name Says It All!

One of the strongest arguments a foreclosure defense attorney can raise is Plaintiff’s lack of Standing. Specifically, standing requires that the party prosecuting the action have a sufficient stake in the outcome and that the party bringing the claim be recognized in the law as being a real party in interest entitled to bring the claim. Without standing, a Bank is precluded from suing you for foreclose and as a result, is not entitled to take YOUR home. One way to prove a Plaintiff does not possess the requisite legal standing is to show a break in the chain of title. For example, you, the borrower, originally took out your loan with Bank “A”, but now, 5 years later Bank “C” is filing a foreclosure against you. Naturally you may be thinking, who heck is Bank “C” and how did they get their hands on my loan? That is a great question. There MUST be a legal nexus between the two. In order to lawfully transfer the interest in a loan, the bank generally does one of two things: 1) the original mortgagee may endorse the Note to a third party or 2) they may assign the mortgage to a third party. It is the latter that we will be focusing on here today. When assigning a mortgage, most lenders use an entity called Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. or MERS for short. MERS acts as a “Nominee” for the lender and typically handles the assignments of mortgage from the original lender to a third party.

Moments of Encouragement: Don’t Stop Fighting.

Posted September 22nd 2014 by Attorney Stites

Often times, the foreclosure process can be a time of overwhelming stress and doubt and this is never more true than when it comes to loan modification. It may seem like no matter how many times you call the lender and no matter how many documents you gather pursuant to their specific requests, that the lender just will not work with you. While this discouragement is understandable, we wanted to take a moment to highlight a recent success story that proves that with enough hard work and prayer, things can turn around.

Recently, we had a client that attempted loan mod on multiple occasions only to be denied every time. However, this client did not give up and while we continued to zealously defend the case and prevent the bank from stealing the home, this client continued trudging ahead don the path of loan modification. After almost a year of defending this particular foreclosure, the client was able to use this time to work directly with their lender and obtain a permanent loan modification in which the principal was reduced by over $200,000. This means the client was able to not only stay in their home, which is always the ultimate goal, but save over $200,000 in the process. While loan modifications like this are far from guaranteed, it is instances like these highlight the importance of you, the client, actively working on loan modification with the bank, while we diligently fight their attorneys in the courtroom.
