The Ryan Firm is a litigation firm specializing in mortgage servicing, real property, and business litigation. Our firm draws upon the experience of its principal, Timothy M. Ryan who has twenty years of experience representing some of the country's largest financial institutions in mortgage fraud, mortgage servicing, and real property litigation. The firm defends wrongful foreclosure matters, violations of credit reporting statutes, Truth in Lending Act violations and other federal and state mortgage originating and servicing statutes. The Ryan Firm also represents individual clients in real estate sales transactions gone awry, construction contract issues, boundary disputes, agent-broker disputes, and other business, mortgage servicing, landlord-tenant, and real estate related litigation. Mr. Ryan's experience as a bankruptcy law clerk ensures that the fog of bankruptcy does not unduly prevent his clients from reaching their litigation goals. The Ryan Firm prides itself on its ability to avoid litigation whenever possible through aggressive pre-litigation consultations with our potential adversaries. The Ryan Firm, through a superior understanding of our area of specialty, protects its clients through aggressive and effective use of counter and cross-claims in order to neutralize relative bargaining positions and risk. We also know how and when to maneuver cases away from juries and into private resolution settings.

Our most recent success in this arena involved an investor defendant being sued for elder abuse and other significant and potentially ruinous claims in foreclosing on the home of a very sympathetic plaintiff (purportedly) in violation of a postponement agreement. Our initial victory was achieved when the court ordered the matter into arbitration as a result of our hard fought motion. Success was ultimately achieved at the arbitration itself through relentless cross-examination of key witnesses. Another incredible success in this arena is a modest (under $50,000) breach of contract / collections case in which we represented the debtor and were able to turn into a seven figure pre-trial settlement on our client's cross-claim.
