MFI-Miami Founder Steve Dibert began helping Mary Eveleigh of Charlevoix, Michigan prior to starting MFI-Miami in 2006. Mary was a victim of a “straw deal” foreclosure rescue scam. Steve and Mary fought for six years to prove she was a victim of mortgage fraud by the shady investor. Mary was finally victorious in 2012.

MFI-Miami was able to prove both Bank of America and Fannie Mae lacked standing to evict Robin Roberts from her Michigan home in 2012. Orlans Associates failed to record an assignment or a deed from Fannie Mae to Bank of America. Consequently, Orlans Associates then proceeded to illegally evict Roberts as if nothing had happened. MFI-Miami and her attorney stopped the eviction.
MFI-Miami successfully stopped a tax foreclosure on Detroit cancer victim Kelly Parker in 2012. Lawyers working at the direction of MFI-Miami negotiated a cash settlement with Bank of America arguing the tax foreclosure was because of their negligent handling of Ms. Parker’s mortgage escrows.

Lee Friedman had his mortgage rescinded in 2014 thanks to MFI-Miami. An Orlando judge dismissed a foreclosure action with prejudice brought by Deutsche Bank.

Craig Brand blocked all foreclosure attempts.
The Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court upheld an argument made by MFI-Miami in April of 2014. MFI-Miami argued First Franklin Mortgage Loan Trust 2005-FF1 lacked standing to foreclose on Traci and Germaine Gales. Steve Dibert proved Gales’ note was not properly endorsed. The MBS trust possessed no evidence they held the original note when they filed the complaint.
MFI-Miami scored another victory against Deutsche Bank and Ocwen in 2014. Steve Dibert stopped Deutsche Bank from foreclosing on 9/11 responder James Campisi. MFI-Miami’s used its influence in finance media to expose the way Ocwen was treating James Campisi. This exposure forced Deutsche Bank and Ocwen to negotiate a loan modification with Mr. Campisi.
Attorney Daniel Milian and MFI-Miami forced JPMorgan Chase to voluntarily dismiss with prejudice a foreclosure action against Olympia Zacharakis in 2015. MFI-Miami’s research proved the endorsement stamped on the note by a Washington Mutual executive was fraudulent. Steve Dibert proved the mortgage note had been endorsed three years after the Washington Mutual executive left her position. As a result, JPMorgan Chase withdrew their foreclosure action.

Steve Dibert and MFI-Miami scored another victory against Ocwen again in 2015. The team at MFI-Miami was able to convince Ocwen to remove its lien on the home of the late Marion Wright in Detroit. MFI-Miami could prove Bear Stearns Asset Backed Securities 1 Trust 2005-CL1 did not possess the note. Steve Dibert showed that the entities assigning the mortgage could not assign the mortgages because the originating lender had been dissolved in bankruptcy.
Attorney Craig Brand and MFI-Miami argued that JPMorgan Chase lacked standing to foreclose on Yosvani Alfonso and his grandfather in 2013. The Florida 4th District Court of Appeals agreed with both Craig Brand and Steve Dibert in January 2016. Consequently, the Florida 4th DCA overturned the 17th Circuit Court’s ruling and handed the property back to Alonso and his grandfather.
Mike Conroy was in a four year foreclosure battle with Suntrust Bank. Steve Dibert discovered that Suntrust lacked the standing to foreclose. MFI-Miami consequently had several terse emails with Suntrust’s lawyer in Miami. As a result of these emails Suntrust then agreed to a principal reduction of $200,000 along with a 3% interest rate. The mortgage balance was lowered from $581,000 to $374,000. Suntrust also lowered his interest rate from 6.875% to 3%.
