Six years ago, before the bubble burst, it was not that easy to find an Orlando lawyer who practiced foreclosure defense. The Kramer Law Firm was one of the few firms that defended foreclosure in Central Florida prior to the housing crisis.
Then, in 2007, homeowners in Florida saw the beginning of the housing crash. For the first couple of years following the housing crash, most lawyers in town would refer foreclosure cases to our firm.
However, by 2009, many lawyers themselves feeling the economic pinch on other practice areas quickly realized the opportunity to survive by defending foreclosures.
What was once a handful of Orlando foreclosure lawyers became hundreds. Now almost every firm has foreclosure listed as an area of practice even though the attorneys may practice primarily family law or criminal law.
These firms may claim to have 20 years of experience, but in reality, they may only have one year of experience in foreclosure defense. Our foreclosure attorneys have decades of combined experience; we have defended thousands facing foreclosure.
The expertise of Orlando lawyers skilled in foreclosure defense remains in high demand. At the Kramer Law Firm, we know foreclosure law inside and out.
Not through an entry-level training program that got us up to speed, but by advising and defending our clients in foreclosure actions every day since our firm was established.
- We train other attorneys how to defend foreclosures at Continuing Legal Education seminars.
- We developed and invented the defenses that other attorneys attempt to use.
- We are recognized in the legal community and the community at large for our experience in defending foreclosures.
Why Are We Different from Other Orlando Lawyers?
We have represented and defended thousands of foreclosure and related cases.
We know all of the nuances of foreclosure law and understand how a judge perceives foreclosure litigation.
We value how our advice and representation in foreclosure matters will affect each of our clients.
We believe in the cause of our clients.
When a bank runs roughshod over a distressed homeowner, an Orlando lawyer at the Kramer Law Firm becomes that homeowner’s personal legal advocate who protects their interests and their future.
We do not treat the foreclosure process with assembly line mentality. Foreclosure is a serious lawsuit, requiring meticulous attention and skill. It also requires innovative thinking, which can only come from experience, competence and a creative mind.
We are all about solutions. It can sometimes feel as if you have lost control, and you no longer have any chance of reaching the financial goals you once had. Our involvement can change that. We will advise you about alternatives to foreclosure that offer genuine solutions.
Our Orlando lawyers can negotiate with your lender from a position of strength. Our experience enables us to explore the full range of alternatives and defenses to foreclosure. Together we develop and execute the remedy that actually will work for you and protect you.
We will tell you to take a long, hard look at bankruptcy. While some law firms say they can assist you with alternatives to foreclosure, their goal is to push you to file for bankruptcy. We are also a skilled and reputable bankruptcy law firm.
After careful consideration, bankruptcy may be considered to be the correct action in certain foreclosure cases. But the truth is, we advise most homeowners that they don’t need to file bankruptcy to avoid a foreclosure.
We excel at foreclosure defense litigation: An Orlando lawyer at the Kramer Law Firm can raise a multitude of strong defenses in court that can help you keep your home.
We have three goals when we defend our clients who are in foreclosure:
- Keep foreclosure from happening – which enables our clients to either continue living in their property, or continue renting out their property.
- Help homeowners pursue and obtain their goals – usually keeping their house through either a modification or reinstatement, or walking away without owing money – usually through a deed-in-lieu, short sale, or consent judgment.
- Hold deceptive or incompetent banks, mortgage companies and other foreclosers accountable.
We are a full-service law firm dedicated to excellence. The diverse talents of our Orlando lawyers mean tangible benefits for our clients. Foreclosure cases are never cut and dried.
Foreclosure lawsuits can run the gamut of legal issues, overlapping with statutes governing bankruptcy, business law, breach of contract, fraud, misrepresentation, estate law, military relief, divorce, tax issues, criminal defense, civil litigation and appellate law. In each situation, we can represent you strongly and effectively.
