Attorney Roy Oppenheim Appointed Legislative Liaison, Florida Bar Mortgage Committee

Protecting the Homeowner and Committed to Making a Difference in Florida's Floundering Real Estate Market, Florida Real Estate Attorney Joins Real Property, Probate & Trust Law (RPPTL) Section of The Florida Bar

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - October 9, 2009) - With Florida at ground zero for foreclosure filings nationally, Roy Oppenheim, a real estate and foreclosure defense attorney working "from the trenches" for more than 22 years, announces his appointment as Legislative Liaison of the Florida Bar's Mortgage and Encumbrance Committee.

As one of only a few foreclosure defense attorneys to join the Committee, Oppenheim hopes to shed light on foreclosure related issues that affect a large percentage of Florida homeowners. One of his first tasks will be to assist the Committee in providing an official response to the Final Report and Recommendations on Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Cases by the Florida Supreme Court Task Force on Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Cases.

"I am truly honored to serve The Florida Bar and the public at such a pivotal point in Florida's history," said Oppenheim, who is on the front lines battling the legal issues of today's foreclosure crisis. "The current trends in Florida real estate and foreclosure reflect an unprecedented crisis."

The Mortgages and Encumbrances Committee is part of the Real Property, Probate & Trust Law (RPPTL) Section of The Florida Bar. The Committee, consisting of lawyers that share similar interests, meets monthly to discuss developments concerning the use of real estate to secure loans and other obligations. The Committee is asked to make recommendations to the Florida Legislature each year concerning the need to change or modify certain laws pertaining to real estate mortgages and also reviews all pending legislation concerning mortgages and encumbrances.

"I hope that my participation on this Committee will ensure that all Floridians, whether a large multinational bank that is foreclosing on a home or an unrepresented homeowner, receive the same due consideration and day in court," Oppenheim said. "Florida, through the Supreme Court Task Force and our Committee, will clearly need to review its foreclosure procedures to make sure that they are uniform within the State and also comport with how foreclosures are handled in other parts of the country."
