The Sohnen Law Firm has considerable experience and acumen in handling court cases involving disputes about loans secured by mortgages or deeds of trust in California. The experience of our attorneys in this subject matter goes back nearly twenty years – well before the current housing crisis.
We are thoroughly familiar with the legal issues that arise in such cases, and have experience in the effective use of summary judgment motions and other motion practice where feasible. We have handled such cases through summary judgment, trial and/or appeal. We have handled the full range of issues in loan disputes, including for example:
- loan origination issues
- disputed priority between secured loans
- disputes about default procedures
- quiet title actions
- expungement of notices of pendency of action
- injunctions and temporary restraining orders
- cases concerning loans transferred by receivers after bank closures
We also handle a spectrum of commercial disputes in court and arbitration settings. These can range from commercial liability or breach of contract claims to obtaining injunctions and cases involving claims of unfair competition, misappropriation of trade secrets or customer lists.
