I thrive on achieving the best possible result for my clients. This requires working with clients early and often to develop a strategy that accomplishes their goals. My experience in various practice areas, ranging from commercial litigation to products liability and estate planning, allows me to offer clients creative strategies and solutions to achieve these desired results.
Joseph Ronderos’s practice spans a wide variety of litigation, from commercial and consumer financial services to products liability. His day-to-day work runs the gamut of litigation activities — drafting motions, responding to and propounding written discovery, as well as oral argument in both discovery disputes and dispositive motions.
Financial Services Litigation
In representing mortgage servicers and lenders, Joseph defends actions for alleged violations of consumer protection statutes, such as the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) and Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), fraud, wrongful foreclosure, breach of fiduciary duty, unfair competition, negligence, and breach of contract. He also represents a range of other consumer financial services providers, with a concentration on defending mortgage lenders and loan servicers in lender liability actions.
Joseph has experience with products liability and personal injury matters. He has represented manufacturers of heavy equipment and household products in allegations of defective design.
Joseph has assisted clients with contract disputes and real property disputes, and has experience with establishing businesses, and drafting lease agreements, trust agreements, and real estate sale contracts.
Seeking to avoid unnecessary disputes and resolve matters through negotiation form the basis of Joseph’s practical litigation philosophy. Client service means finding the most cost-effective and efficient solution to a problem. In general, this means resolving cases quickly whenever possible, and promptly communicating to clients when it’s not. In the latter case, he provides each client with a clear, fact-based explanation of the probable trajectory of their case. If settlement isn’t possible, and none of the available options include fruitful negotiation, then the client will know immediately that the next step is a dispositive motion, and perhaps trial.
