Foreclosure Defense

For too many people, the great American Dream of home ownership has become an American nightmare. Millions of families lost their homes and their life savings during the "Great Recession." Then, the world was shook by a COVID-19.

In the beginning of the 2008 mortgage foreclosure crisis, many cases languished for years, while "foreclosure delayers" took advantage of homeowners, charging to do little, if any, work. Those "delayers" are still out there but, due to a few reasons, cases can now move from start to finish in a matter of months. The foreclosure defense attorneys at our Hollywood firm are NOT "foreclosure delayers". We fight to serve our clients facing foreclosure and improper debt collection. We hold banks and financial institutions accountable, to abide by the rule of law, just like everyone else has to do before trying to foreclose on a home or collect a debt.

Not only will we aggressively defend you with our extensive knowledge and experience, but we will also treat you with the respect and dignity you deserve. Our foreclosure defense lawyersare eager to serve you and help you achieve your goals, whether you want to keep your home with an affordable loan modification, walk away without owing any money, fight the foreclosure and win, or pursue any other approach.

A well-defended foreclosure has many benefits including the ability to continue to live in your home during the fight. Throughout the foreclosure process, we will help develop your case and elicit valuable facts that can result in the bank settling with great terms. Banks have one goal, make as much money as possible. With us defending your foreclosure case, the costs for the bank often increase drastically. So, it is not surprising that many of our cases result in a fair settlement, allowing the majority of our clients to achieve a successful outcome.

Centrally located in Hollywood, the experienced foreclosure defense lawyers at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen have a well-earned reputation for being aggressive, thorough, experienced, and extremely competent litigators. We have helped many clients obtain loan modifications with lower interest rates and lower monthly payments. We've negotiated short sales and consent judgments with waivers of deficiency so you can walk away from the foreclosure case without having to worry that some bank may try to collect a money judgment against you. We have also helped clients with short payoffs, deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure, and several other creative solutions.

If you do nothing, a bank can obtain a foreclosure judgment quickly. Within a few weeks of that judgment being entered, a sheriff would be at your door commanding you to vacate in 24 hours. If you don't, the sheriff will return the following day and forcibly remove you and all your personal property off the premises. Doing nothing is a choice, but it is the absolute worst choice you can make. It essentially guarantees the worst possible result. But with competent representation, the odds change immediately. You will at least have a fighting chance. And understandably, the better the lawyer, the better your odds should be. Don't make the mistake of doing nothing. The foreclosure defense attorneys at our Hollywood firm are devoted to serving our clients and will aggressively defend you while you remain in your home. We also handle cases in Fort Lauderdale and throughout South Florida, including all cities in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties. As to our foreclosure defense attorneys' fees, we typically offer monthly flat fee payment plans which are less than the cost to rent a home in any decent area in South Florida. Don't delay. Call now and let the lawyers and staff at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen, P.A. Serve You!

Improper Debt Collection / Debt Defense

With a central Hollywood, Florida/Broward County location, the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen, and its defense lawyers, are ready to fight improper debt collection. Creditors and debt collectors like banks, credit card companies, and financial institutions know that the more aggressive and deceptive they are, the more likely they are to collect on a debt. For many of these vultures, the cost of getting caught breaking the law and paying a fine, is just a cost of doing business. But debt collection is a serious matter. As stated in our nation's Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, "[t]here is abundant evidence of the use of abusive, deceptive, and unfair debt collection practices by many debt collectors." These "[a]busive debt collection practices contribute to the number of personal bankruptcies, to marital instability, to the loss of jobs, and to invasions of individual privacy."

Our Fort Lauderdale debt defense lawyers have significant experience suing for improper debt collection under state and federal statutes and regulations. The law requires that certain accurate and unambiguous disclosures are sent as certain pre-determined events take place. There are also many things debt collectors and creditors are prohibited from doing. For example, they cannot simulate being law enforcement or a government agency representative, threaten or use force or violence, threaten to disclose information about your reputation, communicate or threaten to communicate with your employer before obtaining final judgment without your permission, disclose information affecting your reputation to anyone other than you or your family, use profane, obscene, vulgar, or abusive language, harass you or your family about your debt, send forms and summons designed to look like attorney letters or government documents, attempt to collect a debt they know is not legitimate, or communicate directly with you even though they know you are represented by an attorney. They also cannot cause you to be charged for phone calls, communicate with you between 9 P.M. and 9 A.M., or make false representations about the character, amount or legal status of a debt.

The consumer protection defense lawyers and staff at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen are familiar with every possible consumer protection statute available to best serve our clients. We continue to study the statutes, regulations, and new case law. Armed with this knowledge and our experience, we have sued numerous creditors and debt collectors for several different types of consumer protection violations. We have also helped clients resolve debt, which in some instances means the debt was written-off and completely forgiven.


The Fort Lauderdale Bankruptcy attorneys have significant experience helping individuals obtain a fresh start under § 11 of the United States Code, also called the United States Bankruptcy Code. Bankruptcy is by far the most powerful consumer protection statute in the United States. The code, with the help of experienced lawyers like those at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen can help you keep your assets and discharge debts.

This is a critical part of our society. The U.S. Constitution includes specific provisions for this exceptionally powerful consumer protection tool. Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4 of the U.S. Constitution authorizes Congress to establish "uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States."

The Bankruptcy Code is what is commonly referred to as a "five-finger" statute. This is because each section references numerous other provisions and sections. So when you are reading or researching an issue, you often have to keep your finger in one place in the code while flipping to another. Many times, you end up with five fingers as bookmarks while trying to research a particular issue. And that's just the Code. There are also local rules and case law. The Bankruptcy Code is complicated but with an experienced lawyer by your side, you can maximize the property you can keep and the debt you can discharge.

Many people in our country's history have utilized the Code. Sam Walton (Wal-Mart), Walt Disney, P.T. Barnum, Henry Ford, H.J. Heinz, Charles Schwab, and many others all discharged debt and went on to be the tycoons we know them as today.

Client Reviews
Mr. Rosen was recommended to us by our friends and we highly recommend him for his excellent service. He represented us in the matter of foreclosure defense. His comprehensive and detailed knowledge of Florida law, federal law, and ongoing relevant cases was key to building a robust and winning strategy for our case. He presented us with several options and the risks associated with each, but ultimately, we picked the one that worked best for us. Mr. Rosen and his legal team are highly professional and always easily approachable via phone or e-mail. Once again, highly recommended. Jadwiga M.
In a few words, Evan Rosen saved my house. He got a final judgment in my favor. The judge gave the bank many opportunities (continuance of the trial even a mistrial) to solve all the issues that Evan Rosen will bring up to the judge (issues that were wrong with my case). In the end, his arguments could not be overlooked by the judge and Evan won the judgment in favor of the defendant (me) and an involuntary dismissal of the case. If you want to have the best chances to win your foreclosure case, you need Evan Rosen on your side. He is the Super Lawyer. I have seen him flying out of the courthouse. Oscar D.

Meet Evan M. Rosen

"You obviously know the area of the law very well. You were courteous to opposing counsel, the witnesses and the court. That is well appreciated. One of the things that I don't think a lot of attorneys who do foreclosure practice, see all the judges have lunch together and we know who has given other judges a hard time. And your reputations many times well precede attorneys, and that be either good or bad. Let me tell you, Mr. Rosen, your reputation in front of me is top notch. You did a great job. Appreciate it because what you do is very hard. Sometime when this is all over I would love to sit down and understand." - The Court
