Foreclosure Defense Litigation Practice

Malcolm Cisneros routinely represents mortgage lenders in their efforts to recover property from holdover tenants after foreclosure through the unlawful detainer process. In this era of aggressive litigation tactics by the debtor’s bar, it is not uncommon for judges to allow tenants to raise counterclaims and defenses that are traditionally outside the scope of the routine unlawful detainer complaint, including wrongful foreclosure claims, promissory estoppel, breach of contract, and quiet title. Our attorneys are well-versed on these issues and have prosecuted numerous unlawful detainer trials and successfully defended against tenant counterclaims.
