Jane Dearwester

Jane Dearwester began her career as a real estate closing attorney. She spent her early years helping people close on the purchase of their homes and property. At some point, by necessity, her passion changed from helping ensure the sales of property, to helping people protect their property through financial crisis brought on by national recession.

Jane’s consumer protection practice revolves around helping people maintain their property through defense of foreclosure actions, exposing fraudulent banking and finance practices and loan modification. The loss mitigation portion of that practice includes negotiation of short sales and deeds in lieu of foreclosure, as well as other consumer financial matters that fall under the governance of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the Truth in Lending Act (TILA), the Fair Credit Billing Act, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act (ITADA), and the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act (CARD Act). Each of these laws govern credit, debt and product performance in favor of protecting consumers of at the federal level.

Jane is passionate about helping her clients overcome financial strife. She is a dauntless advocate for the best outcome possible to meet her client’s future goals. Unveiling the wrong action of financial institutions to the benefit of the people they mistreat is her favorite success.
