At Forster Realty Advisors we have earned a reputation as a highly-respected litigation consulting firm, assisting trial attorneys in the preparation and management of mortgage and  complex real estate litigated cases.

We investigate mortgage fraud, predatory lending practices and real estate fraud, and offer opinions on industry standards and practices.

We are often asked to perform independent analyses of mortgage loan documents  for attorneys, including FDIC-style Net Present Value tests, and RESPA/TILA compliance.  

Our assignments are almost equally divided between work for plaintiffs (55%) and defendants (45%). The 

clients represent a mix of Dow-30 companies, Top-100 national law firms, small-to-medium firms and sole practitioners.

We have mastered a wide array of real estate and mortgage specialties, including bank fraud, mortgage origination, underwriting, and sub-prime/stated income fraud analysis.

Our Mortgage Fraud Experience is Unique in The Mortgage/Real Estate Consulting Sphere

Our vantage point allowed us to identify, during the early stages of the mortgage industry meltdown, fraudulent activities that ran contrary to the conventional wisdom of the times. It became clear that borrowers were not the only perpetrators of fraud in the industry, and that many brokers and lenders used predatory lending tactics to ensnare borrowers in their scams. We have since served as court-designated experts in major fraud and Ponzi Scheme cases.

We evaluate each case on its merits, and we believe that each client deserves to have his/her day in court. To that extent, our caseload is almost equally divided between plaintiffs and defendants.

The recoveries, verdicts, favorable outcomes, and testimonials described on this site are not an indication of future results. Every case is different, and regardless of what friends, family, or other individuals may say about what a case is worth, each case must be evaluated on its own facts and circumstances as they apply to the law. The valuation of a case depends on the facts, the damages, the jurisdiction, the venue, the witnesses, the parties, and the testimony, among other factors. No representation is made that the quality of the expert services to be performed is greater than the quality of expert services performed by other consultants.
