Share Article

This seminar will provide powerful new tools for attorneys attempting to secure meaningful modifications and sustainable mortgages for their clients facing foreclosure.

I want to thank you, Max, for one of the best seminars that I have ever attended. It made me think in ways that I have never thought about.

Consumer bankruptcy attorney O. Max Gardner, III is bringing his new foreclosure defense seminar focused on the UCC to New York. Gardner is nationally recognized for his cutting edge consumer financial protection litigation and his successful effort to build an “army” of educated consumer attorneys throughout the country.

This new seminar, designed for foreclosure defense attorneys as well as consumer bankruptcy attorneys, focuses on the groundbreaking legal arguments establishing that a mortgage note is not a negotiable instrument and the impact that has on the validity of past transfers and present ownership of the note. This line of argument provides a powerful new tool for attorneys attempting to secure sustainable mortgages for clients facing foreclosure.

The ABC’s and UCC: What You Need to Know About the UCC for Foreclosure Defense will take place November 19 & 20, 2011 at New York Law School in Manhattan. Max has assembled an all-star team to join him in this event, including:

New York Supreme Court Judge Arthur Schack

Tara Twomey, Amicus Project Director for the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) and Of Counsel to the National Consumer Law Center (NCLC)

Thomas Cox, the attorney who triggered the temporary foreclosure freeze

Richard Shepherd – Former Vice-President and General Counsel for Saxon Mortgage (now Morgan Stanley)

Margery Golant – Former Assistant General Counsel at Ocwen Financial Corporation and Department Manager of a major plaintiffʼs foreclosure firm

Jay Patterson – A leading Certified Fraud Examiner and Forensic Accountant.

Businessweek/Bloomberg calls Gardner the “Go to guy for consumer bankruptcy” and describes his Boot Camps as “a foreclosure Woodstock.” Max’s Boot Camps have also been featured on CNN’s Your Money, ABC’s Nightline and the PBS Newshour, as well as in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post.

Gardner is passionate about protecting the "little guy" in what he sees as a national home foreclosure crisis. "Our goal in presenting these seminars," he says, “is to provide the lawyers with the knowledge, skill and legal tools they need to provide the highest possible level of representation to their consumer clients."

Visit for details and to register. All attendees will receive a flash drive with all of the material in electronic format, including documents editable for use in their own practices. There will be free WiFi access as well as electrical outlet access for laptops.

For consumer attorneys on the other side of the country, Gardner will also be speaking at NACBA’s 2011 Fall Workshop on October 28 and 29 in Colorado Springs, Colorado on attacking proofs of claim and stay relief motions.
