About Attorney Richard Ivar Rydstrom:

Mr. Rydstrom has been a California attorney for 20 years and enjoys the reputation of a legal gladiator. He has litigated with or for some of the biggest or richest in the country, small business owners, doctors, and lawyers, as well as individuals in need. He has represented numerous clients in need and understands the personal struggle that many good people find themselves in during these troubling economic times. He recently obtained the return of a home taken in a defective foreclosure from two major national banks. He has extricated clients from potential million dollar judgments. He has protected clients facing judgments with legal asset protection exceptions found in the law, and known to few attorneys, outside of this discipline.

    Some significant distinctions include:

    •Published in a Statement to the 110th Congress, House Ways & Means Committee, Chairman Charles Rangel
    •Considered a national expert in mortgage banking and related foreclosures
    •Honorary member of the American Legal and Financial Network (AFN)
    •Chairman of CMIS (Coalition for Mortgage Industry Solutions)
    •Member of the HAMP Policy Working Groups (AFN, Treasury, etc.)
    •CLE speaker and educator for attorneys, judges, banks, servicers, accountants and financial advisors  for the National Business Institute (NBI)
    •Frequent keynote speaker, panelists, and moderator at national conferences and webinars including the AFN, NBI, CMIS, CMBA
    •Voluntary Settlement Officer (VSO) for all Los Angeles courts

Mr. Rydstrom has been quoted or published by: The Los Angeles Times, USA Today Magazine, MortgageOrb, Mortgage Daily News, Orange County Register,, National Business Institute, CMISfocus eMagazine, Pepperdine University (Law, Business Journal), AIR Commercial Real Estate Association,  Constructor Magazine for the AGC Association, and others.
