"This ruling against Bank of America has made it possible for over 2,000 homeowners to be heard in court by Brookstone Law, thanks to the California Appeals Court Desicion, which has handed us a major win," said Vito Torchia, Jr., Managing Attorney, Brookstone Law, based in Manhattan, New York.

According to Vito Torchia, Jr., despite Bank of America's effort to close the case, they boldly took it to the Supreme Court to overturn the descion but Brookstone Law plantiffs prevailed again!

"Brookstone Law had previously won in CA Superior Court of Appeals. This Supreme Court Decision is the next step up," said Vito Torchia, Jr., who is moving to New York to manage Brookstone Law's East Coast practice.

Attorney John Mortimer, who will replace him as a managing partner in California, has years of experience in civil litigation and has enjoyed a great deal of success. He's excited to take over as the managing partner and litigate these cases in court.
