Foreclosure Defense Attorneys
Attorney at Law, Gregory Michael Nordt, Esq.
Gregory Michael Nordt was born in Queens, New York. He earned a B.S. in accounting, cum laude, from Florida State University, a Juris Doctorate degree from the University of Miami, and an L.L.M. in taxation from the University of Florida. While at the University of Miami, he was awarded the distinguished Dean's Fellow award. He was admitted to the Florida Bar in 1996, and the Illinois Bar in 2013. He is currently a member in good standing. Mr. Nordt's areas of practice include: foreclosure defense, banking and finance law, tax law, and IRS tax controversy.
Prior to turning his focus to assist homeowners, Mr. Nordt worked in the Miami metro area at Lamont & Neiman, P.A. and Greenspoon Marder, P.A. where he focused on corporate law and tax and foreclosure defense. His unique blend of experience drives the corporate focus of our firm to become the pre-eminent resource for distressed homeowners seeking a foreclosure solution.
Negotiation is an integral part of foreclosure intervention. A successful foreclosure negotiation often involves an element of persuasion accompanied by a presentation of the facts. You may have heard the phrase, "You can look at the glass as half-empty or half-full." We take the position that "It is a FULL-SERVING--it's just poured into a large glass." This is an analogy of Mr. Nordt's negotiation philosophy.
Mr. Nordt stresses that bankruptcy is not for everybody and an individual consultation is always necessary in order to determine whether it is right for you. This is determined after an analysis is made of your assets, income level, debt, and other factors relevant to your filing under the United States Bankruptcy Code.
If you are faced with a foreclosure action on your home, you must consult with a knowledgeable attorney and be prepared to fight the foreclosure lawsuit, all with an eye toward inducing the mortgage lender to restructure your mortgage loan. You may have legally cognizable Motions To Dismiss, Affirmative Defenses, and other legal rights, which may delay the foreclosure action and your ultimate eviction, and place you in the most favorable light to renegotiate your mortgage with your lender. There are many possibilities and outcomes in the foreclosure arena, and you must consider exploring all of them with the advice of a qualified attorney.
