Wells Fargo Bank v Mitchell

Our firm represents the defendant homeowners Mitchell. In this matter, Wells Fargo sought a summary judgment in this residential mortgage foreclosure action which was denied by the court. Wells Fargo commenced this action in 2006 and our law firm was retained in 2014. At that time, we were successful and served an answer to the complaint in which we denied that Wells Fargo was entitled to a judgment. In this decision, the Court found that Wells Fargo failed to evidence its ability to establish standing or that it had standing to commence the action in 2006. The preservation and protection of our clients' civil rights when opposing a financial institution is an achievable goal in the law firm of Rubin & Licatesi PC.
