Leveling the Playing Field for Individuals with Debt

In 2009, Matthew Bavaro, who has been practicing law for over 16 years, and Matis Abarbanel, who has been practicing law for over 18 years, both left lucrative personal injury law practices to form Loan Lawyers, LLC. and focus exclusively on providing affordable and creative solutions to homeowners and consumers in debt. Both founding partners are practicing Orthodox Jews that wanted to find a way to really help people that were feeling the crunch during the Florida foreclosure crisis and economic downturn. Sadly, so many people in the community were losing their homes because they were simply unaware of their rights or were being taken advantage of by unscrupulous home rescue scams. The founding partners of Loan Lawyers built the firm with the goal of looking out for the best interests of individuals who were in need of legal assistance due to their foreclosure or debt related issues. What started out with just the two lawyers and one secretary has now grown to one of the leading consumer rights and litigation firms in the state with 11 attorneys and over 30 employees whose sole drive and motivation is to help fight for and champion the rights of those individuals that are being treated unfairly by greedy and unscrupulous banks, financial institutions, and debt collectors.

Our Unique and Innovate Approach

What sets Loan Lawyers apart from other firms in South Florida that help consumers is our unique and multifaceted approach. Too often we have had clients come to us for a free consultation to discuss their debt issues only to tell us that the previous attorney they met with told them they should just file bankruptcy, yet after analyzing their whole debt picture we have been able to file multiple lawsuits against their debt collectors for violations under State and Federal law, vigorously defend their credit card cases and get the debts removed, and take the bank that is holding their mortgage to task and emerge victorious against them at trial. This resulted in not only effectively eliminating their debt, but recovering money on their behalf due to wrongful foreclosure or debt collection practices. We started to see a pattern emerging that law firms that specialize in bankruptcy were advising clients that bankruptcy was the right solution, when it wasn't, and law firms that only handle foreclosure matters were not equipped to help consumers with the multitude of bankruptcy or other creative approaches that could result in substantial reductions or the complete removal of their mortgage and other debts.

From day one, Loan Lawyers was built around putting the client first, and therefore we provide a unique and creative approach to every client's debt situation, often employing a multi-prong defense and attack for each area of their debt obligations. In fact, besides offering affordable legal fees at a fraction of the price they would normally cost, many consumer cases are handled on a contingency basis, meaning we don't get paid unless we win your case. It's not uncommon for a consumer or homeowner to come to Loan Lawyers for foreclosure defense or bankruptcy, and wind up making money by our unique approach of holding the banks and debt collectors responsible for their negligent or fraudulent behavior. Consumers and homeowners should always be empowered to know that just because they think they owe the debt, doesn't mean that they don't have rights. Not only that, more often than you could imagine, the entity that is trying to collect on the debt doesn't even own it and can't prove that they have the right to bring the lawsuit. By fighting hard for our clients rights and offering them a total debt solution approach we have been able to even the playing field and achieve justice for consumers and homeowners. Loan Lawyers is large enough to have the tools and resources to fight against the banks, debt companies, and their lawyers, yet small enough to give you the attention that you need. We know what it feels like to be David facing Goliath, and are always here for our clients to remind them that David won.

Reputation in the South Florida Community

Thanks to hard work and priding ourselves on ethics and always putting our clients' interests first, Loan Lawyers has developed an exceptional reputation in the South Florida community, not only amongst consumers and homeowners, but amongst our adversaries in the courtroom and the judges that preside over our cases. Despite our emphasis on a multi-faceted marketing campaign to ensure that individuals in need of our services will know how to find us, the majority of our clients are still referred to us the old fashioned way, by word of mouth. Thousands of South Florida homeowners have turned to Loan Lawyers for their foreclosure and debt issues, and nothing makes us happier than to hear that they came to our offices due to what a great job we did for their friends and neighbors. It is not uncommon for judges in open court to compliment our knowledge and integrity, and we have even had several new clients come to our office as a result of foreclosure judges apprising them of our trustworthy reputation. In fact, recently the vice president of one of the largest mortgage loan servicing companies in the country referred his best friend to our firm when his house went into foreclosure, telling him, "I can't stand this law firm because they put up such a fight, they are a real thorn in my side, but if you want the best, go to Loan Lawyers."
