Firm Overview

Serving Lenders and Brokers Nationwide

Mortgage Attorney

Compliance • Purchases and Sales • MortgageLicenses

My practice is devoted entirely to mortgage law. I assist individuals and their employers throughout the United States who seek mortgage lender, broker, and loan officer licensing and registration. I also advise banks, mortgage companies, credit unions, and other financial institutions on federal and state mortgage law compliance, and I provide counsel on employment issues relating to the mortgage industry and other issues such as net branching concepts and joint ventures between real estate brokers, lenders, and title agents.  I have helped entrepreneurs create new companies and have handled mergers and acquisitions.

Extensive Mortgage Law Experience
Since 1981, I have practiced as in-house or outside counsel for mortgage bankers and financial institutions. I have worked for both large and small mortgage companies, including Advance Mortgage Company Ltd. (at the time the seventh largest mortgage company in the United States);  Regency Savings Bank FSB in Ann Arbor, Michigan; and Independence One Mortgage Corporation (Michigan National Corporation), a top 25 mortgage banker.

In 1994, I joined the Detroit, Michigan, firm of Jaffe, Raitt, Heuer & Weiss, PC, as a partner, representing mortgage companies and title agencies. In 2002, I joined the regulatory compliance group of Trott & Trott, PC, as supervising attorney. I opened my own practice, Mark K. Rabidoux, PLC, in March of 2005.

Professional Memberships and Qualifications
I have served on board of governors of the Michigan Mortgage Lenders Association, including president of its Southeast Michigan Chapter and as a member of the association's legislative committee. I have also served on the board of the Michigan Mortgage Brokers Association. In October 2004, I was awarded the Certified Mortgage Banker designation by the Mortgage Bankers Association of America, one of only a handful of lawyers nationally who hold that designation. I am a frequent lecturer on mortgage compliance issues, particularly those arising from the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act ("RESPA").
Sandra M. Mamo is a legal assistant who has extensive experience in the mortgage licensing process, having prepared and submitted applications on behalf of clients to a number of states. She has extensive experience with the National Mortgage Licensing System ("NMLS") and has helped both companies and mortgage loan officers get licensed or registered in all 50 states and submit annual license renewals and annual reports.
