Lender Liability

Demanding Fairness and Honesty in the Mortgage Market

As home foreclosures increased dramatically, it soon became clear that unscrupulous lending practices were behind much of the tragedy that caused hardworking people to lose their homes.

Homeowners have been hurt, but are lenders liable? Will mortgage brokers and banks be held accountable for practices that contributed to the economic crisis? At Girardi | Keese, our lawyers have the resources and the will to fight back against dishonest lenders. Contact us to learn if you have a case against your lender.

Lender liability: We hold lenders responsible for their practices.

The stories of individual families and homeowners can often get lost in national economic statistics, but at our law firm we know that those individual stories are the reality, the heart, of the mortgage crisis. We are prepared to handle lender liability lawsuits that place responsibility where it belongs.

  • Dishonest mortgage brokers and banks knew they were lending money to people who would not be able to pay the loans. Their emphasis was on making loans and raking in bonuses and closing costs, not on making loans that were appropriate.
  • Lenders often preyed on racial minorities and the elderly, assuring them that refinancing or getting a new mortgage was well within reach.

The attorneys at Girardi | Keese have a well-deserved reputation for fighting for the individual and against big businesses that try to take advantage of individuals. If a lender harmed one person or one family, chances are that lender harmed hundreds or even thousands. We have the resources and the passion to file and litigate lender liability lawsuits.

If you are concerned about a client or loved one who has lost a home because of unscrupulous lending practices, contact us. We represent clients in California and nationwide.
