Van Ness Law Firm has opened a second office in downtown Miami, Florida. The new location provides a strategic location directly across from the Miami-Dade County Courthouse and is located only a few blocks from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
The two Van Ness South Florida locations are located within 43 miles of three major courthouses in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade, which account for almost 30 percent of all foreclosures filed in the state. Van Ness also has associate attorneys located physically in the Gulf Coast and Panhandle areas in order to make sure that only law firm staff handles crucial litigation hearings, trials, and mediations.
Van Ness, which opened in 2004, has always represented the mortgage servicing industry to include foreclosure litigation, creditor-side representation in bankruptcy, evictions, title, appeals and REOs. Prior to entering private practices, the firm’s founder, Tony Van Ness, worked at both Ocwen Federal Bank FSB (now Ocwen Loan Servicing) and Bayview Loan Servicing.
“I feel my servicing roots provide a unique perspective into building a firm that servicing clients would want to facilitate,” Van Ness said. “Being one of the older foreclosure firms in Florida completing our 12th year, we have seen the complete cycle of the industry. Continually reinvesting in the firm, having no debt and keeping relatively small allows us to be versatile in this ever changing industry. Our Scorecards speak for themselves.”
