My job is to resolve foreclosure disputes as efficiently, strategically, and favorably as possible. In my experience, the key to accomplishing that is sheer reasonableness. Rather than pounding the table, I strive to work together with opposing counsel to craft a workable solution together. Courtesy and respect go a long way, in my experience, towards achieving a good result.
Amy Kisz primarily represents banks, lenders, and servicers in litigation involving complex mortgage foreclosures, state and federal consumer protection laws, and other consumer financial services matters, including defense of wrongful evictions and wrongful repossession of collateral. Litigation requires the ability to operate with both a close-up and a wide focus simultaneously. It also requires developing strategies for each case individually, with the importance of this capability increasing along with the complexity of the matter and the amount at issue. Amy evaluates her cases, and builds strategies, by drawing on years of experience. In doing this, she considers a wide range of factors, including the judge handling the case, opposing counsel (whom she often has faced before), location in the state (which influences the outcome) and other factors. Based on this, she distills the case down into the essential variables. Following this, she begins negotiating, moving the dispute towards resolution. Consumer mortgage litigation is both specialized and consistent, and resolving these disputes means closing the gap between borrower and lender in a manner that’s both expedient and workable. Amy’s institutional clients rely on her ability to work cooperatively with the borrower’s counsel, and with a minimum of rancor and unnecessary delay, hammer out a deal. Applying a unique integration of legal expertise, personal experience, and emotional intelligence, Amy excels at arriving at a judgment that helps secure the lender’s investment, minimizes risk, and brings the dispute to a conclusion.
