Representing Florida Property Owners
Sarasota Foreclosure Defense Lawyers
We represent Florida property owners in all Florida counties in strategic mortgage defaults and foreclosure defense. The Forrest Law Firm represents Florida property owners who have one or more of the following problems:
- You owe more on your mortgage than your property is worth,
- You are considering walking away from your mortgage, or
- You are facing foreclosure.
We will help you evaluate your individual situation, advise you of your options, and assist you with a solution to your problem.
For homeowners who decide to walk away from their mortgage in a strategic default, we will work to maximize your chances of walking away with as little damage as possible, with options including short sale, deed-in-lieu of foreclosure, a negotiated settlement with your lender, and asset protection.
For homeowners facing foreclosure, we will ensure that your due process rights are protected and to obtain time to implement one of the solutions discussed on this website. Call us today for a free telephone consultation to find out how The Forrest Law Firm can help you - no office visit is required.
Do you feel trapped in your home because you owe more than the house is worth? Do you wish you could just walk away? Choosing to walk away from your mortgage is called a strategic default or strategic foreclosure. If done correctly (with full knowledge of the potential risks and benefits) a strategic default is the right choice for many property owners.
As a foreclosure defense attorney in Florida, I have represented and advised thousands of property owners facing foreclosure. I have negotiated, battled, litigated, and fought with many of the major banks, lenders and loan services in the country. I have defended foreclosures against doctors, politicians, housewives, professional athletes, plumbers, dentists, and people from every walk of life.
We aggressively fight against foreclosure lawsuits and seek solutions to help our clients who are struggling with underwater loans and toxic mortgage debt. The firm utilizes strategies designed to help maximize your chances of avoiding deficiency judgments and other adverse financial consequences.
We can also use techniques that maximize the amount of time our clients can keep possession of their properties before turning them over to the lender, often as much as two years. These techniques give our clients much needed additional time.
For clients with investment or rental properties, the frm has developed legal techniques to maximize their rights as property owners and landlords and, if the client wishes to surrender the property at the end of the litigation, maximize the chances that the lender will release the client from any deficiency judgment claims or other financial obligations on the mortgage loan.
If you are considering walking away from your mortgage, either because you can no longer afford to pay your mortgage payments or because it no longer makes financial sense for you to continue paying on a mortgage when you owe more than the property is worth, I will explain the benefits and risks to you. I will give you the information you need to make an informed decision about your financial future.

About The Forrest Law Firm
At The Forrest Law Firm, our Sarasota foreclosure attorneys only accept a limited number of new strategic default and foreclosure cases each month. We are selective about whom we choose to work with, and turn down as many cases as we accept. If we choose to decline your case, it's not a judgment of you or your situation.
We are most interested in representing motivated clients who appreciate working with a law firm that concentrates exclusively on strategic defaults and foreclosure defense. We have no interest in becoming an assembly-line-style law firm that hires rows of paralegals to churn out cookie-cutter work. If our approach to the practice of law appeals to you, we look forward to hearing from you.
