Firm successful in representation of victims of unlawful foreclosure

Concetta Lomanto was recently successful in representation of plaintiffs in a case involving an unlawful foreclosure and seizure. Although the mortgage was not in default and a foreclosure action had never been commenced, the bank erroneously hired contractors to enter the home and illegally remove and destroy the residents’ personal property without their knowledge or consent. The firm successfully negotiated a settlement to compensate the clients for their lost personal property. “Illegal trash out” cases are an unfortunate consequence of the recent foreclosure crisis. The firm has been consulted by several other parties who have unfortunately lost property and suffered similar consequences.
