New York City Foreclosure Defense Attorney

We represent distressed homeowners — individuals who have defaulted on their mortgage, are actively in foreclosure, or who have been defrauded and victimized in their attempts to save their home. Our team is dedicated to combating the deceptive, abusive and unlawful practices carried out by large banks, institutional lenders, con artists and various homeowner rescue scheme entities.

If you are struggling to pay your mortgage and your bank or lender refuses to work with you, we can help. Our legal team will assess your financial situation to determine whether you qualify for a loan modification, guide you through the application process and ensure that loan servicers properly review your loan modification application. In the event your home is already in foreclosure, we know how to analyze and litigate all viable defenses and claims. We will zealously advocate on your behalf and work tirelessly to help achieve your desired goals. If you are at risk of losing your home, you may be afraid and not know where to turn. We are the experienced choice in foreclosure defense.

Today, distressed homeowners are at increasing risk of being victimized by illegitimate loan modification companies, foreclosure specialists, investors and other con artists offering to save their homes. These foreclosure prevention scams often involve promises of principal reductions, free and clear title, or loan forgiveness. Such claims are often false and commonly used by conmen solely to prey on vulnerable homeowners. The best way to avoid losing your home in a foreclosure rescue scam is to call the Law Offices of Bruce Richardson. We have saved the homes of many homeowners from a wide range of real estate and mortgage fraud scams.

Attorney Bruce Richardson leverages his broad background in criminal defense to design successful litigation strategies. If you are at risk of foreclosure because of a lender or servicer’s unscrupulous or unlawful conduct, we can help.

Real Estate Litigation – Tenacious Litigation, Proven Results

Our attorneys are experienced in handling civil RICO claims, often in the context of real estate litigation and mortgage fraud. Although RICO is aimed at combating organized crime, a private party also has right to file a lawsuit against another person, business or other entity (e.g. corporation, political group, religious organization) over racketeering activity. We have been actively involved in numerous successful civil RICO claims, including the dismantling of a $30 million homeowner rescue scheme by the United States Attorney’s Office District of New Jersey. We have successfully defended a homeowner ensnared in multi-million-dollar mortgage fraudulent scheme that culminated in the arrest, indictment and convictions of a short sale specialist, real estate broker and attorney by the U.S. Attorney’s Office Eastern District of New York. Our success in appellate cases and resolution of Quiet Title statute of limitations actions establishes our expertise and skill in the myriad of real estate litigation issues confronted by our clients.
