Experienced Litigators Who Will Protect Your Rights
It is critical to retain the services of a law firm that focuses on real estate issues and has extensive experience litigating real estate fraud and construction defects cases. These matters can be complex and, because the stakes are high, defendants generally fight to protect their interests. You need a lawyer who can build a strong case and make it stand up in court.
Mortgage fraud involves misrepresentation of loan terms, borrower qualifications or property values. In some situations, real estate developers have used fraudulent appraisals and misrepresentations to fool investors out of millions of dollars. The normal safeguards — mortgage companies, escrow agents, title companies and real estate agents — do not work because they are cooperating with the fraudulent sellers or they simply fail to conduct due diligence.
In construction defect cases, we represent property owners in addressing issues such as land problems, design defects, poor workmanship, building material failures, insurance coverage disputes and roadway and infrastructure problems.
