Dustin A. Zacks, ESQ.
Dustin Zacks graduated from the University of Michigan with both his undergraduate and Juris Doctorate degrees and served as an Associate Editor of The Michigan Review and the Michigan Journal of International Affairs. He worked as a Judicial Intern under a judge of the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit. Dustin is licensed to practice in all Florida state courts and in the federal court for the Southern District of Florida.
Dustin has handled hundreds of foreclosure cases and has conducted ground-breaking depositions of bank officers. The former Ohio Secretary of State cited his depositions of a bank officer as possible grounds for a potential criminal investigation into the foreclosure practices of Chase Home Finance. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Inspector General further cited Dustin’s Chase deposition as evidence that Chase “[filed] improper legal documents.” The Supreme Court of the State of Washington has cited Dustin’s research into Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. as evidence of possible consumer protection violations by banks and servicers. Many of Dustin’s depositions and motions are routinely cited as evidence that banks and servicers have been guilty of faulty practices in litigation against homeowners.
As a result of his trendsetting work, Dustin has appeared on various national and local media outlets to speak about foreclosure and real estate issues, including CBS Evening News, BBC World News America, National Public Radio, Fox Business Channel, Washington Post, USA Today, Reuters, Associated Press, Bloomberg, MarketWatch, Euromoney Magazine, AOL Real Estate, Palm Beach Post, South Florida Sun-Sentinel, South Florida Daily Business Review, Benzinga.com, and MoneyTalksNews with Stacy Johnson (syndicated).
Dustin has been invited to lecture attorneys nationwide regarding foreclosure issues and the ways in which homeowners can defend against banks and servicers:
