Indiana Law Firm Merges With Morris|Hardwick|Schneider

Atlanta-based ""Morris|Hardwick|Schneider"":http://www.closingsource.net recently announced that it has expanded its national default services division through a merger with Phillip A. Norman P.C., a Valparaiso, Indiana based law firm.
Phillip Norman joins M|H|S as senior managing attorney for Indiana. In his new position, he will manage the firm's practice in Indiana, which will focus on REO, and will oversee a local practice specializing in real estate law, business transactions, litigation, and probate. Norman will also serve as district president of Indiana for the firm's title company LandCastle Title.
Nat Hardwick, M|H|S managing partner, commented, ""With the addition of Phil and his team, M|H|S’s national default services division can now offer default services to 11 states, further increasing our ability to provide real estate solutions for the entire life cycle of a property. In the unfortunate event that a foreclosure can’t be avoided, it’s important to have seasoned attorneys who are able to handle things smoothly and in a professional manner. Phil’s experience will be very beneficial to our team.""
The firm's national default services division provides loss mitigation, bankruptcy, foreclosure, and eviction services in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, Delaware, Washington, D.C., Florida, Ohio, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and now in Indiana. Combined with the firm's national REO division and strategic alliances with partnering law firms and title companies, M|H|S and LandCastle Title can provide REO and default services to 31 states.
Norman comes to M|H|S with more than 20 years' legal experience. Commenting on the recent merger, Norman said, ""Like M|H|S, I view foreclosures as a last resort. I’m excited to join a firm that is focused on providing exceptional customer service, which is very important when dealing with complex default cases.""
Prior to joining M|H|S, Norman was president of Phillip A. Norman P.C., where his practice areas included general civil, state, and federal litigation; real estate; municipal and zoning; banking creditor’s rights; foreclosure and bankruptcy; and administrative law. Norman received his Juris Doctor from Valparaiso University School of Law and graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Georgetown College.
