Law Firms Cash In On Foreclosures, The Law Offices of David J. Stern of Plantation Fl Leads the Pack, What is Their Deal ?

Their work can be so repetitive that some are known disparagingly as "foreclosure mills."  But the niche field of foreclosure law is profiting enormously from the boom in Florida home foreclosures and is on a hiring spree.

"As you know, Florida has very high foreclosure rates because of the boom in real estate in Sarasota and in Tampa," said Ken Goins, chief executive of foreclosure processing firm Prommis Solutions, which is seeking to expand into Florida. Prommis Solutions is owned by Boston private equity firm Great Hill Partners.

Over the years, foreclosure firms have adopted an assembly-line approach to filing and following mortgage foreclosures as they work their way through the court system, said Susan Etheridge, whose legal recruiting and consulting firm, Professional Placement Services, helps foreclosure firms with their efficiency (or not).

But the firms' efficiency is being put to the test under the current flood of foreclosures. To determine which law firms are filing the most foreclosures, the Tampa Tribune analyzed 1,734 lis pendens documents filed in Hillsborough County's circuit civil and county civil court divisions.

The Law Offices of Daniel J. Stern of Plantation filed at least 263 foreclosure suits, a lawyer in Stern's office declined comment, saying the firm's financial service clients request that Stern not speak with the media.
