In Fight for Attorney Fees, Broward Attorney Blasts Court

In Fight for Attorney Fees, Broward Attorney Blasts Court

Law-

A Broward lawyer whose clients lost their bid for attorney fees suggested judges were sending a message to him and other foreclosure defense lawyers: They may prevail in the courtroom, but lose when it comes to recouping expenses for borrowers who defaulted on mortgages.

Outspoken foreclosure defense attorney Roy Oppenheim said a court decision last week indicates lawyers representing homeowners against lenders will likely not get paid for their work, if they can’t recover attorney fees from plaintiffs who bring failed lawsuits. But he said it will likely spawn new litigation as successful defendants accuse financial institutions of common law and statutory torts.

“If the courts think that’s how they’re going to shut down the Roy Oppenheims of the world, they’re mistaken,” said Oppenheim, co-founder and senior partner at Weston-based Oppenheim Law. “They’ve emboldened us.”
