This website review is of a company called the Residential Litigation Group. This is a litigation law firm based in Washington DC whose aim is to assist homeowners in suing major banks in reference to deceptive lending practices, illegal foreclosures and other real estate related issues.
Because many homeowners have never been through the litigation process before, it is helpful to have a good idea of what to expect. This is laid out clearly on the page entitled ” Litigation- What to Expect”. It is on this page that the consumer is given a brief but thorough explanation of the process in a concise step by step format.
First is the Initial Intake . This is a basic consultation where the client discusses his case with a legal assistant. At this stage the process is explained, some information is taken to be forwarded to an attorney. The attorneys review the information and decide whether a legal case can be effectively made. If so the client will receive a retainer which he can then review and execute. He then moves on to phase two.
Phase Two is when the client has the opportunity to meet with the attorney. This is a mandatory procedure where an actual attorney can answer your questions and go into further detail of the process. There is no charge for this more detailed consultation and there is no obligation to hire the firm at this point.
The final phase is when the case actually goes to litigation. This is called Case Management. The client is assigned a paralegal who serves as a liaison keeping the client informed of updates and court dates.
There are many different causes of action handled by the Residential Litigation Group. Some of these include the following:
- Breach of Contract
- Breach of the Implied Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing
