Legal Services Offered

Customized Loan Documents

Our attorneys have experience with bridge/private-money transactions in both closing the loan transaction and, if necessary, foreclosure when the loan defaults. Commercial loan documents are rarely standardized as is the case with residential documents.  Our attorneys will work with the lender to draft the documents necessary to protect the rights of the lender, with an eye toward enforcement of the Lender’s remedies. The larger the transaction, the more complex and the more expertise is needed to prepare the documents properly, our attorneys have the requisite experience.

If the loan defaults, the attorneys we work with know the difference on how to prosecute the foreclosure without the delays of the “big box, residential foreclosure mills.” The attorneys we work with are skilled to overcome the problem that arise when the original loan documents are deficient.

Settlement & Closings Services

The real estate attorneys that Caballero Lender Services works with have extensive experience and specific knowledge of all aspects of buying, selling, and financing residential and commercial properties.

The attorneys represent various residential and commercial lenders ranging from multinational banks to small private funds. Drawing on our extensive experience, knowledge, and relationships that we have established with local and national lenders, and mortgage brokers we can offer our clients professional, efficient representation—insuring your real estate transaction closes smoothly.

I’ve known George for many years, and I could not think of a more reliable, responsive and knowledgeable person in the mortgage foreclosure, curative and servicing markets. From his vast experience in the field, George built Caballero Lender Services out of the best attorneys by great reputation, cost and speed. My firm, ProTitleUSA, uses George’s firm all the time for many complex title curative issues and would recommend his firm to all players in capital markets.

Alex Goldovsky

CEO and President, ProTitleUSA

There are few individuals in the mortgage banking industry that have the character, passion and fortitude that match their professional expertise and breadth of knowledge. George is one of them. I’ve personally known George for over 15 years, and I have provided legal services for his previous business endeavors. From an attorney-client perspective, I can say that very few individuals possess his level of energy, enthusiasm, and exactness for detail and getting the job done right and on time. He is a stickler for accuracy and follows up on projects (no matter how big or how small) to ensure completion. Few people in this industry possess his acumen for building and maintaining relationships.
