Barnes Walker is involved in litigating against banks and other institutions who wrongly foreclose against their mortgages. Based on our investigation, large institutions such as Wells Fargo, J.P. Morgan Chase, Citigroup (CitiMortgage or CitiFinancial), Bank of America, U.S. Bank National Association, Deutsche Bank, One West Bank (Indymac Bank), Ocwen, Fifth Third, Bank of the Ozarks, BankUnited, SunTrust Bank, HSBC Finance, and other mortgage lenders and servicers may be guilty of entering into trial period payment plans with borrowers and then refusing to do a permanent mortgage modification, or worse – choosing to move forward with the foreclosure in violation of the agreements between the lender and borrower. In our cases, the banks acted as if the modification agreement never existed, or the banks argue they never intended on entering into a permanent modification in the first place. And despite all of this, the banks collected payments and then defaulted the borrower. Barnes Walker has brought lawsuits against banks for breach of contract, misrepresentation, malicious prosecution, negligence, or intentional tort.
