Legal cases

  • Lorraine Campbell and Charles Lamm v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.

    Practice Area:
    Real estate
    Date:
    Jul 06, 2016
    Outcome:
    Dismissed
    Description:
    Petitioners Campbell and Lamm, the Defendants in a pending residential mortgage foreclosure action, petition for a writ of mandamus, seeking review of the denial of their motion to dismiss. They contended that the verified second amended complaint of Respondent, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. does not comply with the certification requirements of Florida Statutes 702.015(4) and Rule 1.115(c) of the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure. The 4th DCA denied the Petition and concluded that a plaintiff’s failure to meet the certification requirements is not a mandatory prerequisite to the filing of suit which can be enforced by mandamus
  • Tricia Schoenheit v. U.S. Bank National Association, as Trustee, etc.

    Practice Area:
    Real estate
    Date:
    May 05, 2016
    Outcome:
    Affirmed
    Description:
    Appellant contends that she did not waive the issue of personal jurisdiction by filing an affidavit in opposition to summary judgment, because opposition to summary judgment is defensive in nature and not affirmative relief, so as to submit a party to the jurisdiction of the Court. By finding that Appellant had waived her right to contest personal jurisdiction, Appellant was denied the right to have an evidentiary hearing on her Motion to Quash Summons and Motion to Quash Service of Process of Summons and Verified Complaint.
  • Cepero v. The Bank of New York Mellon Trust Company, N.A., etc.

    Practice Area:
    Real estate
    Date:
    Feb 10, 2016
    Outcome:
    Affirmed in part; reversed in part; and remanded for further proceedings
    Description:
    Appellants, Raul and Leslie Cepero, appeal an order denying their motion to quash service of process. They claim that the court erred in concluding that the motion was not proper simply because their claim of insufficiency of service of process was not made in their initial motion to dismiss. We agree that the court erred in determining that they had waived their claim by failing to assert it in the motion to dismiss, as they amended the motion to include this claim prior to the court ruling on the motion. We thus reverse as to Leslie Cepero.
  • Charles Lamm v. Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.

    Date:

    May 28, 2015
    Outcome:

  • Fernando Cujar v. Suntrust Mortgage, Imc.

    Practice Area:
    Real estate
    Date:
    Oct 30, 2014
    Outcome:
    Affirmed
    Description:

Customer Reviews

I called attorney Snyder on a Friday afternoon on an urgent basis as I needed him to review a real estate contract for the purchase of a home in Boynton Beach, Florida. The deal was falling apart fast and I desperately wanted the deal to go through. He was able to see me that same day and immediately after hiring him he contacted the seller’s attorney and was able to close the deal. What a great experience and I really appreciated his extensive knowledge and understanding of my particular needs. Would absolutely use again!!

I contacted Mr. Snyder for help with a complicated legal issue dealing with a real estate matter which needed immediate attention. He took the time to fully explain my legal rights and obligations under my circumstances and I found him to be extremely knowledgeable about many aspects of real estate law. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Mr. Snyder was very helpful. My case was actually a matter involving small claims. However Peter Snyder spoke to me for about 30 minutes and gave me wonderful advice. He truly was very sympathetic and was very informative.

He is an excellent attorney. He did save my case that was very complicated. If you want an attorney you can trust to give the best of himself you call him.

Thanks Mr Snyder
