Real Estate & Finance Attorney | Former “Big Bank” Insider

Since 1990, David Soble has provided no nonsense legal advice to banks, lenders and consumers alike, in the areas of commercial and residential real estate, business and residential lending and contract matters.

David Soble is a graduate of Michigan State University (’87) and The Ohio State University College of Law (’90). His focus has been on real estate law and lending law.

His background as a pragmatic problem -solver is unique in that he has extensive practical experience and knowledge working with commercial, residential, and lending transactions. He has managed sizable loan portfolios ($500+ Million) consisting of commercial and residential real estate for national banks. He was managing attorney to several notable lending institutions and their default loan servicing portfolio. He is a licensed real estate broker and has authored numerous books and articles on issues related to real estate, contracts, foreclosure matters, loan negotiations, and creditor /debtor rights.

“I love to demystify complicated real estate and financial legal concepts and problems for people who are frustrated with incompetent or dismissive real estate or banking “professionals.”

I hate when people place themselves at a legal disadvantage; they find themselves “stuck” when they unknowingly relying on outdated or impractical information and forms found off the “internet.” Its frustrating to see when people base their decisions off of the “outside chatter” of people they hardly know, (or worse, friends or family members) who are NOT licensed and experienced attorneys and have no “skin in the game.”

For the above reasons, in addition to my daily practice, I actively write, publish and create books, articles, podcasts, slide presentations and newsletters -all designed to simplify complicated legal concepts related to real estate and finance. I strive to make these resources user -friendly and practical so that someone having legal concerns can understand how to reduce their legal liability and financial exposure in the real estate and debt arenas.”
