Robert P. Diederich

“I’m able to offer a unique and novel approach to attacking legal problems.”

Rob’s clients are usually facing a financial challenge. Some are experiencing financial difficulties and need advice on how to come to a compromise with their creditors; others need help recovering a delinquent debt. But they all come to him seeking cost-effective legal advice. Rob uses his knowledge and experience, as well as outside-the-box thinking, to achieve a resolution that meets the clients’ needs. Every day, Rob works on complex legal issues that some attorneys may handle only intermittently over the course of their careers. As a result, he offers his clients a wealth of insight and experience in order to successfully resolve case after case.

Case Studies / Success Story:
Rob represented a bank that had entered into a loan with a borrower, evidenced by two promissory notes secured by two deeds of trust. In all, the debt was more than $7 million. The borrower filed for bankruptcy protection and sought to avoid the deeds of trust held by Rob’s client on a claim of allegedly improper notaries. If the borrower’s claim was upheld, it would expose Rob’s client to substantial and unexpected risk. While the borrower’s legal position focused entirely on the notaries, Rob unveiled an alternative defense that rendered the borrower’s entire argument irrelevant. Based on such defense, Rob’s client prevailed in retaining its secured position in the bankruptcy proceeding.

“A good attorney with experience in dealing with troubled loans or bad debt can offer a unique perspective on the best approach to maximizing its recovery.”
