Matthew “Yerachmiel David” Bavaro
I have been living in South Florida for the past 40 years. I knew since
I was a teenager that I wanted to be a lawyer. I was blessed with an internship
with the Honorable John Frusciante when I was 17 years old. That experience
sparked my love for the law. Throughout college and law school, I worked
for some of the best attorneys in their field and soaked up as much knowledge
as I could. When I graduated law school, I started my own firm in 1999
and haven't looked back since.
When I reached 30 years old, I realized that there was a lot missing from
my life. I stared exploring my Jewish roots and began to get more and
more involved with living a Torah observant life. This has instilled in
me values and ethics that have really put the practice of law in a whole
When I started Loan Lawyers with Matis Abarbanel, another Torah observant
Jew, we set out to make a difference. We saw what was happening to homeowners
and those in debt decided to get involved and it's been an amazing
experience. We saw banks getting bailed out to the tune of billions of
dollars and they roll right over homeowners. We saw people being taken
advantage of by unscrupulous loan modification companies and, in many
cases, unscrupulous lawyers. So, we stepped in and have grown one of the
largest consumer protection firms in the state.
In my career, I have helped people with a myriad of legal problems, but
nothing has been as satisfying as helping those struggling to save their
home or fighting a creditor. When I go home at the end of a long day and
we saved someone's house or successfully sued a debt collector, it
gives me a great deal of satisfaction and happiness like no other area
of law ever has. I always treat every case like it was my mother's
case and I instill that value in all of the lawyers who work with us.
My #1 goal is to give a struggling person the same level of legal representation
as the banks can afford without charging what a bank lawyer charges. Everyone
deserves exceptional legal representation and I do my best to provide
that to all Loan Lawyers clients.
