Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&AResponsive Law

I focus my practice on business transactions and disputes. Love working with international clients. In 2017-2019 I spent two years living and working as the senior counsel in the Middle East, advising C-suite executives on quarter-billion-dollar PPP projects. My clients either live in the US and do business abroad, or they are foreign nationals investing in the US. I have experience in international business transactions in Canada, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. I also represent clients in federal court, having been admitted to several federal courts and a federal trial bar in the US. 

Our law firm has been set-up to represent clients effectively and remotely for several years. This is not a new COVID-related adjustment for us. 

As for my personal bio, I have lived or spent months at-a-time in Riyadh, Ukraine, Italy, France, Cyprus, Mexico City and other incredible places around the globe. It is so wonderful when I get to meet my clients in person and for the first time long after I began to represent them, but simply because our paths have crossed in their locale. Safe to say, I love to travel. I also love, live and breathe pickleball. I am out on the courts playing every single morning (7am start), unless I have a conference call with you or a court hearing (smile).

Legal Answers
180 Questions Answered
Q. Can I add a stipulation to a check that finalizes and terminates a contract?
A: Yes, the Florida statute that governs Full and Final Accord and Satisfaction is Florida Statute 673.3111. You have to tender the check with proper notice for it to be effective. Also, it depends what your contract with the contractor says. You can't just write a check for a dollar and call it a day, even if you follow that statute. The check must be tendered in good faith, and there must be a genuine dispute. Good luck.
Q. I purchased house from county auction. It was foreclosed house. Three months later second mortgage showed up.
A: When someone purchases a home, there are two legal remedies available to the banks for non-payment. One is foreclosure and taking possession of the home. Two, is a breach of note remedy or collection on the deficiency judgment. Here, it sounds like you purchased and took possession of the home as a result of the foreclosure process. And the second mortgage holder is pursuing its legal option of collecting on the amount still owed to it on the Note directly from the people who signed the Note. Based on the facts as you describe them, I do not think you should worry about it. However, to confirm what I am assuming to be the case, you would need to retain a lawyer to review the record and the documents. Best of luck.
Q. If the grantee s post office address is wrong on quite Claim Deed, Does it make the instrument defective or invalid
A: Grantee's mailing address is wrong rather than the address of the property conveyed? There's no issue if it was some sort of scriveners error in the address. You can file a corrective deed.
