New deal adds top-performing west coast trustee operation and expands ALAW’s national footprint to California and Arizona.

ALAW has completed the transition of acquired assets and operations from JPMorgan Chase’s California Reconveyance Company (CRC).  The Firm also retained CRC’s highly tenured staff of approximately 80 employees – who continued operations as ALAW employees on Monday.

“Our strong relationship with Chase, coupled with a highly tenured staff and strong tenured leadership already in place, made for a smooth transition of this top-performing organization to ALAW,” said Rayman Mathoda, Chief Revenue Officer at ALAW.  “Our plan is to support these employees - under the continued leadership of Deborah Brignac - and to grow the business to serve additional clients and states from the West Coast. The operations’ top performance track record along with Chase’s commitment to the people, will support the ongoing opportunity to continue representing Chase and now other top servicing clients -- seeking the same superior trustee services previously limited to Chase.”

The Transparency of BestX

BestX from Adam Fitch on Vimeo.

Oversite’s BestX Program (BestX.com) has been proven to increase transparency, mitigate risk, and accelerate judicial foreclosure performance. Servicing systems today rely on the self-reported milestones and dates of third party vendors (law firms); that often conflict with official court records. Law Firms also vary widely in performance and capacity and the legal strategies that the pursue may not reflect optimum resolution paths. BestX deploys information capture, analytics and legal capabilities in the hardest hit judicial states and provides a thorough analysis of jurisdictions, dockets and judicial personnel to determine the optimal case prosecution strategy.
