Robert Maddox practices in financial services litigation with an emphasis in mortgage litigation and compliance and commercial/real estate litigation. He is a Certified Mortgage Banker (CMB) and is one of only a handful of attorneys in the nation who have achieved this status. His national practice focuses primarily on representing two specific industries: financial institutions and mortgage companies.

Robert’s representation of clients in the financial institutions and mortgage industry is both trial practice and compliance. The trial practice has led Robert to trial and appellate courts in over 40 different states from Florida to California, and from Washington to Washington, D.C. These cases involve numerous causes of action including TILA, HOEPA, FDCPA, FCRA, RESPA, RICO, predatory lending, mortgage related fees and services, insurance packing and state deceptive trade practice laws. In addition, Robert has litigated all facets of the mortgage industry: origination, warehouse lending, pooling and servicing agreements, loan repurchase disputes, investor disputes, secondary market representations and warranties, servicing matters, commercial mortgages, settlement services issues and mortgage fraud. These matters are in various contexts including pre-litigation complaints by borrowers, state agencies and consumer advocacy groups, class action, consumer litigation, bankruptcy and representing the investor/servicer as plaintiff in seeking recovery for fraud, title insurance coverage, repurchase and contract/commercial disputes.
