CASE STUDIES

Home Recovered for Swindled Elderly Man

Case Study

Justice was found for an elderly South Philadelphia gentleman who was swindled out of a property which he owned for many years. Our client is an 86 year old man who was approached by two defendants offering to buy his property. According to our client, the defendants came to him with a brown paper bag containing $4,000 cash. After a brief discussion, the defendants gave the money to him as an initial down payment towards the full purchase price “to be decided later.” Unfortunately, the elderly gentleman never saw another dime despite the property being worth an estimated $150,000.

The case proceeded to trial after unsuccessful settlement negotiations. The defendants testified during the trial that our client “gifted” the property after payment of the $4,000.

Court of Common Pleas Judge Eugene Maier found in favor of our client. Judge Maier stated in his findings that the defendants’ testimony that the property was a “gift” was not credible and was totally without merit. The Court ordered the Recorder of Deeds to file a new deed recording our client as the sole owner of the property.

Philadelphia Resident Transforms An Attempted Eviction Into Huge Settlement

Case Study

A lifelong resident of Point Breeze received a large settlement after his own son tried to evict him from his own home.

An elderly man worked hard at his blue collar job throughout his life.  30 years ago, his son won a mortgage lottery qualifying him for a home mortgage. The father had some savings for a mortgage down payment but lacked the credit needed for a mortgage. So, the father and son made an oral agreement where title to their home was placed in the son’s name, but the father paid the down payment. They also agreed to split the mortgage payments. As it turned out, the father ended up paying most of the mortgage for 30 years while the son lived out of state. Unfortunately, the father never asked the son to transfer the deed to his name even though he took on the mortgage.

In an act of shocking betrayal, the son attempted to sell the house out from under the father, keep all the proceeds for himself and force his father out on the street.  

We represented the father to stop the eviction and force the son to share the proceeds of the sale. After a hard fought battle by the father, our firm helped him stop the eviction and force the son to share the proceeds of the sale. The son decided not to risk open court against this solid case against him, and he settled the case.    

Our client used his share of the proceeds to purchase his own new home.  He is currently living in his own home with his wife and daughter.
