Margery E. Golant, Esq.
Margery Golant is so smart and experienced that she’s dangerous… if you’re a banker or servicer, that is. For homeowners, well… I think she’s pretty darn wonderful. She’s the former Assistant General Counsel for Ocwen Financial Corp. She’s a former Pennsylvania District Court Magistrate, she has twenty years as a real estate attorney and litigator, and she’s been a Title attorney/Agent for Old Republic, First American, and Fidelity.
Margery received her Juris Doctor from Suffolk University Law School in Boston, and then went on to earn two Masters of Laws degrees… one in International Tax & Financial Services, from the Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude, and the second in International Tax, with concentration in US Tax and International Estate Planning from St. Thomas University School of Law, in Miami, Florida.
In terms of Bar Admissions, she lists the Florida Bar, the Pennsylvania Bar, the United States Supreme Court and the US Federal District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania. And she’s a member of the National Association of Consumer Advocates (NACA), the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA), and the Florida Bar’s Consumer Protection Law Committee. She is also a proud graduate of Max Gardner’s Bankruptcy Litigation Boot Camp.
The other Golant in Golant & Golant is her husband, Stuart… and he’s okay too. I’m kidding… Stuart has also been a real estate attorney and litigator for more than twenty years, and is admitted to the Florida and Pennsylvania State Bars, the United States Supreme Court, and U.S. Federal District Courts, Southern District of Florida and Middle District of Pennsylvania.
Stuart also received his law degree from Suffolk University Law School in Boston, so he’s been following Margery around for a long time now… and who could blame him… she is one of those people that I knew I could trust and wanted to know better from the first time we spoke… she always takes the time to explain things in English, instead of legalese, and she is so in my camp as far as detesting what the banks have done and continue to do to homeowners that there are many times when I’m talking to her that I think to myself… why, she sounds like me. (She can also run a REST Report.)
Margery knows exactly who is responsible for the financial and foreclosure crises… and it’s not the borrowers… it’s the banks. Here’s what the Golant & Golant Website says:
“Once you are armed with the real facts, our objective is to work with you to find a way to achieve YOUR PREFERRED SOLUTION, whatever that may be. Of course, we too know how to slow down the foreclosure action, but that happens in every case in which we get involved, simply because litigation takes time. A “fast track” foreclosure is not possible in a seriously litigated case.
Most of our clients want more than just to stall, and we can help them to get more. If your goal is to SAVE YOUR HOME, we work to find a SOLUTION, based on the particular facts and issues of YOUR case geared to find you the leverage you need to assist in saving your home, not just to negotiate a short sale or a deed in lieu of foreclosure.”
Golant & Golant has two Florida offices, one in Palm Beach and the other in Boca Raton. And be sure to tell whoever answers the phone that you’re a reader of Mandelman Matters, and that Martin Andelman suggested that you call… that way, Margery will know to give you the VIP treatment… LOL… not that she doesn’t offer the same to all of her clients.
