What our clients think of us

Second to None

Mr. Woerthwein’s expertise in foreclosure defense is second to none. Not only does he have great command over the complex legal issues surrounding mortgage backed securities (MBS), he is one of the few Illinois attorneys who can actually claim meaningful success against major Wall Street banks.  His clear, concise and brilliant legal brief filed in the Northern Illinois District court enabled him to prevail in his Motion to Dismiss Plaintiff bank’s foreclosure complaint WITH prejudice for lack of standing.  For the first time since the financial crisis began in 2008, courts across the country are discovery what homeowners have known for some time — most banks foreclosing today don’t have proper standing !

Superb Legal Counsel

Mr. Woerthwein and his team are exceptional. Not only did they handle my foreclosure case, but they did it expeditiously. Ted is head and shoulders above most Chicago lawyers I interviewed because he is well versed on the complex legal issues surrounding Mortgage-Backed Securities (MBS)
