Gibbons | Neuman attorney, Victor H. Veschio, recently presented his oral argument before the Second District Court of Appeal on the issue of whether Florida’s statute of limitations bars a subsequent mortgage foreclosure action where the alleged default date is beyond the applicable 5-year limitation period, but the suit alleging the default also includes “and all subsequent payments” which constitute a default that is within the limitations period.

After Victor’s appeal was filed, the Second District Court of Appeal ruled in a creditor’s favor in a similar case with the same analysis that Victor initially argued at the trial level before the appeal was filed. The similar case is currently on appeal with the Florida Supreme Court.

Victor has developed expertise representing national banks, credit unions and private investors in the area of creditors’ rights litigation in state, federal and bankruptcy courts throughout the state of Florida, and provides excellent representation for the Firm’s creditor clients.
