Florida Foreclosure Law Firm Butler & Hosch Closes Its Doors

by Lewis Roberts, Florida Bankruptcy Lawyer

Some of you may have recently read that local mortgage foreclosure firm Butler & Hosch, P.A., is shutting its doors, effective immediately.

(See story here: http://www.housingwire.com/articles/33919-after-nearly-35-years-in-business-mortgage-law-firm-butler-hosch-closes-down).

But what may be uncertain is how will this affect your foreclosure case? The very simple answer is that it will remain to be seen.

I have some experience with the firm, having worked there several years ago, and according to the article there were various issues within that firm recently that led to its demise – most likely its accelerated growth in past year and recent months.

Most likely many foreclosure cases will fall through the cracks, as happened following the shut down of David Stern’s office a few years ago.

Many more cases might be lost by the lender at trials where counsel fails to attend, as they are no longer employed by the firm or entitled to represent clients as firm attorneys.

Some cases might quickly be taken over by new firms or the benefiting party to the state court action filed on behalf of Butler & Hosch.

One thing is for certain – quick action should be undertaken to protect your interests in your case.

If you have a case currently being pursued by the attorneys at Butler & Hosch, P.A., and would like a free case evaluation, call (407) 749-0080, or contact us. We would be more than happy to meet with you and discuss your case.

Understanding Your Student Loan and Repayment Options

I should get over the shock of how many student loan borrowers, now graduates, truly don’t understand their own loans. I follow some student loan borrower groups on Facebook.  I will leave aside their repeated discussions of complete loan forgiveness by the government.  (Don’t count on it.)  And I will also ignore, until a later blog […]

Payday Lender Harassment

I would bet money that 99% of the time calls to collect a past due payday loan are a scam.  Shocking, right?  (sarcasm font off) Not one day goes by that a client, former client, or someone on www.avvo.com asks about a debt collector threatening them with arrest or someone waiting around the block to […]
