More About Matthew 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 undefined 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 new light.

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.
