Shuster & Saben Celebrates Two Great Years In Firm's Melbourne Office

While Shuster & Saben, LLC was founded in Miami in 2004, the firm opened its third office in Melbourne in October of 2009. The Melbourne office is run by firm co-founder, Richard Shuster who is a resident of Satellite Beach. Since opening firm’s Space Coast office the firm has only lost one foreclosure summary judgment hearing in Brevard County. While there are many law firms that have never obtained a loan modification with a principal reduction, in the last twelve months the Melbourne office had two loan modifications with principal reductions averaging $100,000 (each) for residents of Palm Bay and Indian Habour Beach. For each of these clients, their settlements meant the difference between keeping and losing their homes.

As the firm’s reputation became more well known, the firm was called in to defend a three million dollar foreclosure case in Lee County, that was resolved by short sale with a complete release for the firm’s client. The settlement did not require any out-of-pocket payments by the client to the Plaintiff / Bank or to any second mortgage holder.

Shuster & Saben has never been a firm content to just fight on defense. During the last year, the firm’s Melbourne office sued Bank of America, Chase, CitiMortgage, Fannie Mae, Nationstar, Litton, Ocwen, Strategic Recovery Group, Vantium Capital, Vericrest, and Wells Fargo for claims under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, Florida Consumer Collection Practices Act, Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), and Truth in Lending Act (TILA). During the first ten months of 2011, Shuster & Saben sued more banks in Brevard's County Court than any firm in Florida. The firm also went on the offensive by filing motions for summary judgment against banks in foreclosure cases, and used such techniques to win foreclosure cases by summary judgment.

To our Melbourne clients, staff, and the lawyers in the community who referred us their friends and neighbors, we give thanks for opportunity to fight for our neighbors homes and thanks for a great second year.
