Successful collection of funds for mortgage holder

A client contacted our office indicating that her ex boyfriend had kicked her out of the home they had shared for 5 years. The client indicated that she had lent her boyfriend at the time $130,000 and in exchange, as security, he signed a mortgage naming the client as the mortgagee on the house he owned.

The client had tried unsuccessfully for over 2 years to collect the monies due and her ex-boyfriend continued to say he would pay when he could and that he had no ability do so. Not only was the client not being paid the money due to her, but her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend were residing in the home and living rent free, basically at our client’s expense.

We sent a demand letter to the ex-boyfriend once we were retained and informed him that unless he paid $130,000 plus all interest costs and attorney’s fees, we would be proceeding with a foreclosure on the mortgage held by our client immediately and forcing him and his new girlfriend out of the home.

Result: After we continued to press the issue, we were able to apply major pressure upon the ex-boyfriend and procured a $150,000.00 settlement for our client within 2 weeks of handling the claim. It was only through our aggressive efforts that the ex-boyfriend was convinced to pay our client the money she was entitled to receive.

Successful Resolution of Motor Vehicle Accident Claim By Arbitration

A client was injured in a motor vehicle accident that was not her fault. We were able to convince the other driver’s insurance company that it was best for all concerned to resolve the claim by entering into binding arbitration. Arbitration is a means of avoiding litigation; it costs less; and gets quicker results.

Result: The claim was resolved and our client was quite pleased with the results

Contractor Failed To Perform

Successful Assistance In Collection of “Invested” Funds

We represented a Senior Citizen who we believe had been taken advantage of by a friend after her husband died. This friend told our client that he would help her invest the monies she received from her husband’s life insurance policy. Believing that her friend was looking out for her best interests, she gave that person the insurance proceeds. As time went on, the friend kept promising her the return of her funds and assured her that the money was safe. False statements were provided to her by the friend in order to have her believe that what she was being told was the truth. After many years past by and she did not receive a “penny” back from her investment, she contacted our Office.

Result: We filed suit and we have been successful in obtaining the return of her funds with interest.
