In Florida, businesses must be represented by a lawyer for most litigation, subject to some exceptions for landlords and some small claims.

Attorneys assist most successful business owners throughout their life.
From contract review or contract creation to litigation, we have the experience you need for your business to succeed! We represent businesses and organizations of all shapes and sizes in an array of industries and areas of commerce.

You can probably incorporate your business on your own, but for most legal matters, you will need a lawyer to represent your organization. If you are asking yourself this question then you really should consult with a Business Lawyer.

Foreclosure is a legal action undertaken in court by a mortgagee (lender) against a mortgagor (homeowner), with the purpose of taking over possession of the collateral (real property) for the purpose of auctioning it, to pay for a loan that remains delinquent and unpaid.
We can help slow down the foreclosure process as well as put you in a better negotiating position with the lender. People who do not hire a lawyer are more likely to lose their home in a few months and will usually have a deficiency judgment against them at the conclusion of a foreclosure. An experienced attorney is an indispensable asset for defending a foreclosure.
Having proper legal counsel by your side may very well stretch out the foreclosure process from months to years and should decrease your financial liability to as close to zero as possible, depending a person's financial circumstances. For better guidance and more information on how we can help you please call Peart Law Office at (813) 314-2475 or kindly fill out the form at the bottom of this page. Our Attorney provides free initial consultations under no obligation and we offer hourly fees and flat fees in most cases.
In Florida only three parties can foreclose on homesteaded real property: Government Agencies, Mortgage Lenders and Contractors (the two latter must be loans or work associated with the property in question).
All three entities hire foreclosure attorneys to foreclose on real property. Shouldn't you have an attorney as well? We have been fighting banks and lien holders since 2007 and helped thousands of people over the years. A Foreclosure Attorney is much more affordable than your mortgage payment or rent. Most people who hire an attorney to defend a foreclosure will be in a much better financial position at the end of the case than those without.
Whether you can afford your home or not, we can guide you and help you navigate the difficult road to a loan modification or liquidation with minimal financial losses. Liquidation includes Short Sales, Deed-In-Lieu of Foreclosure and Judgment-in-Rem of Foreclosure (judgment that does not include any financial repercussions).
To schedule a free initial consultation with a Foreclosure Defense Attorney or for more information on Foreclosure Defense and Avoidance please call Peart Law Office at (813) 314-2475 or kindly fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
A loan modification involves underwriting a new loan to replace an existing delinquent loan through one or more of the following avenues: Interest rate decrease, modification of escrow requirements, putting delinquent payments on the back end of the loan, decreasing the principle amount owed, adding or removing borrowers to adjust household income, etc.
There are many ways to modify a delinquent loan. For pricing and more information on how we can handle the entire loan modification application process for you please call Peart Law Office at (813) 314-2475 or kindly fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
Sometimes the foreclosing lender has lost the original note of the mortgage upon which it seeks to foreclose. It will then seek to re-establish the note in court, in order to be able to foreclose. A lost note is a great defense to a foreclosure action and when a case is properly defended, this issue may delay a foreclosure by months or years.
A Deed-in-Lieu of Foreclosure is the act of signing over a deed over to the mortgagee (lender) in exchange for a release of the debt owed. This act should include a full release of the debt owed and normally is offered when a short sale is not possible.
If you receive an offer for a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure by your lender, together with a demand for a financial contribution, you should be weary. When we negotiate a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure it rarely includes a financial contribution by the homeowner. For pricing and more information on how we can negotiate an alternative to foreclosure with your lender, please call our Peart Law Office at (813) 314-2475 or kindly fill out the form at the bottom of this page. Peart Law Office offers free initial consultations so your case can be assessed by an experienced Foreclosure Attorney.
A short sale is the process of selling a home at fair market value, which is currently lower than the debt (mortgage) held on the home.
When negotiating a short sale, experience is key. If you have never negotiated a short sale, then the bank will take advantage of you and will ask for things above and beyond what is usually negotiated with a foreclosure lawyer. Such things include financial contributions, sale concessions, promissory notes, lower realtor commissions, lower contributions to secondary lien holders, etc.
In order to get the best deal possible you should consult with a an lawyer right away. For prices and more information on foreclosure defense and avoidance please call Peart Law Office at (813) 314-2475 or kindly fill out the form at the bottom of this page.

You can still save quite a bit of money in your sale, but still have the peace of mind that everything was done correctly.
