A Glimpse of Our Appellate Practice

Our appellate lawyers at AmedLaw have been involved in an unusual case involving a fraudulent conveyance of real property.  In this case, the buyer stole an identity, and purchased a home sold by a seller who also stole an identity.  The seller’s counterfeit identity was that of the owner’s late husband.  This scam involved nine players who have all been indicted, convicted, and/or sentenced by the Queens County District Attorney’s office.   The bank brought a foreclosure action against the innocent homeowner despite the fact that her home was fraudulently sold by forgery committed by a criminal third party.  AmedLaw represents the innocent homeowner and the victim of this fraud in the appellate court’s against the foreclosing bank, and the matter may soon reach resolution.  Common sense, in this debacle, raises the loudest voice to reinforce the uncomplicated notion that an innocent property owner may not lose ownership of their property as a consequence of criminal acts of unrelated third parties.  The New Post recently discussed this in an article printed on April 25, 2011.
