I have a genuine desire to solve problems. I think of most problems as puzzles that need to be solved. I enjoy helping others, as that is the most rewarding aspect of practicing law.
Amier Shenoda represents mortgage servicers and lenders in a wide variety of commercial and consumer financial services litigation, primarily defense of consumer litigation claims in lender liability actions. His clientele includes financial institutions such as national and state banks, mortgage loan servicers and investors, and other providers of consumer financial services.
Amier handles matters involving contested foreclosures, real estate and title litigation, and claims of federal and state regulatory violations. He represents banks and financial institutions in matters involving state and federal consumer protection laws, and he regularly defends claims arising under the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Home Ownership and Equity Protection Act (HOEPA), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), and the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA), among other state and federal regulations.
As a practitioner, Amier brings a unique understanding of the needs and priorities of his clients to his work. Prior to coming to McGlinchey, Amier led a real estate transaction team that closed over a thousand loan and settlement agreements. This track record gives him exceptional skills as a negotiator, and an unrivaled ability to close deals, because he has an insider’s perspective.
He begins by managing the other side’s expectations with a combination of candor and technical expertise. His negotiating expertise is augmented, of course, by his capabilities as a litigator, and an in-depth understanding of the business needs of his clients, which allows him to be an effective advocate as well.
In the end, both as a litigator and a negotiator, the engine of Amier’s effectiveness is his integrity. Both his colleagues and his opposing counsel know that he’s a bottom-line person, and that if he says or promises something, it will happen. This approach, both surpassingly simple and regrettably less than common, makes him an advocate and counselor who has earned the trust of clients and colleagues alike.
