Partner Grace Doberdruk has demonstrated success representing homeowners in foreclosure cases. Her efforts have resulted in multiple dismissals by winning motions to dismiss, vacating prior judgments of foreclosure, obtaining loan modifications for her clients and filing pleadings that have resulted in opposing counsel voluntarily dismissing foreclosure cases before trial.
Doberdruk has been particularly successful in Cuyahoga County where she has stopped sheriffs’ sales, won motions to vacate judgments as old as 2006, represented clients at foreclosure mediation to negotiate loan modifications – including several with principal reductions – and won motions to dismiss.
If a client’s case proceeds past the motion to dismiss stage, Doberdruk will likely file an answer and counterclaims for violations of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act, invasion of privacy and common law fraud.
Grace has worked on the following class action cases: Turner v. Lerner, Sampson & Rothfuss (settled), Redman v. Francis David Corp., et al., Hlavsa v. Bank of America et al., and Sizemore v. The Modification Group (settled).
Grace is admitted to practice in federal court in the Northern District of Ohio, where she and her co-counsel negotiated a settlement for Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act violations in Munger v. Deutsche Bank, et al.
Grace has also served as Special Counsel to Chapter 7 Trustee Mark A. Beatrice in Bankruptcy Court in Youngstown where they filed an Adversary Proceeding to avoid a mortgage that was assigned to a securitized trust.
Grace graduated with Honors from Cleveland State University – Cleveland Marshall College of Law, where she won the CALI Excellence for the Future Award and Outstanding Student in Torts. At John Carroll University, Grace graduated Magna Cum Laude and was ranked fifth in her class of Communications majors.
Grace has taught two continuing legal education classes sponsored by the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland: “Ownership Issues: Securitization” and “Identification of Cases with Standing Issues and Securitization.”
Grace has been through the intensive Max Gardner Bootcamp twice.
Grace Doberdruk makes the fight for homeowners personal and fights for her clients as if they were members of her family.
