After a wave of foreclosure proceedings hit Long Island during the past several years, a many members of the Suffolk County Bar Association took advantage of learning about advanced foreclosure defense issues by attending a two-part Suffolk Academy of Law seminar entitled “Behind the Curtain: Advanced Standing Issues in Securitized Mortgage Foreclosure.”
The seminars were held on November 19, 2012 and January 14, 2013. At the first session, attendees learned about the intricacies behind mortgage transfers and assignments. The second session highlighted various defenses attorneys can assert on behalf of their homeowner-clients.
Pictured above during the January session (from left to right) are Hon. Peter Mayer, Hon. C. Randall Hinrichs, Charles Wallshein, Hon. Jeffrey A. Spinner and Richard L. Stern, who moderated both sessions. Hon. Dana Winslow and Hon Arthur Schack were additional panelists for the November session.
