FDN is pleased to announce the addition of Donna Douglas, Esq. of Brooklyn, New York to the attorney network. Mr. Barnes has been forging a relationship with Ms. Douglas for over a month, and met with Ms. Douglas for most of the day yesterday in New York reviewing cases and interviewing clients before attending Court in Brooklyn where Mr. Barnes was admitted pro hac vice.
Ms. Douglas will be working with Mr. Barnes handling foreclosure cases in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and Nassau County at this time, with expansion plans being in the works.
Some of the cases reviewed involve mortgage documents with forged borrower signatures. This pattern is on the rise, especially in cases which were originally filed as “lost note” cases or where a copy of the Note was not attached to the Complaint. Several of the cases involve elderly borrowers, which is another disturbing pattern.
Mr. Barnes will thus be pursuing Fraud on the Court and other causes of action where borrowers signatures have been forged in an apparent attempt to lend credibility to an otherwise infirm foreclosure action.
