OK - Two names for now in Alameda County.
Chris Hanson - in City of Alameda 510-521-9181 Worked at title company while going to law school. Handles all kinds of RE law incl. representing fcl. buyers. He has a web site, don’t have uRL handy. He is a bull dog.
Dena Thaler - (My Ex-wife) In Oakland 510-465-8782 Because she has been around for decades, knows this field as well as anyone. Her fortee is representing foreclosing creditors in Bk. Ct. and dealing with complex foreclosure issues. She has made law (published cases) in both State and Federal Court. You can look them up via Google. (Eg. Baron v. Colonial - dealing with a Trustee that declined certain checks Thaler v. Household - dealing with the lack of priority of HOA liens A couple of Federal cases involving IRS tax liens and their right (or lack thereof) of redemption. Can’t recall the exact names.
In Fresno - David Fike My son in Freson has been involved in a couple, heavy BFP cases. He uses Mr. Fike. I don’t have his number handy. He seems to handle more than just situations related to foreclosures.
I’ll create an up to date list. My problem is that I’ve been around so long that most of my contemporaries had more sense than I - and have retired.
