Adam M. Swanson is a partner in the Bankruptcy & Restructuring practice group, focusing on Consumer Financial Services and Real Estate litigation.   

Since he began practicing law, Adam has defended consumer financial services firms from claims involving TILA, RESPA, ECOA, FDCPA, Bank Secrecy Act, Dodd-Frank Act, Gramm-Leach Bliley Act, and UDAP, predatory lending and class action claims.  Adam also has extensive experience litigating intricate real property disputes concerning deeds, easements, ownership claims and claims arising from the acquisition of real property.  Many of Adam’s most notable cases involve the intersection between consumer financial services and real estate.

Adam has obtained the following significant decisions:

  • Bank of N.Y. Mellon v. Whitty, 101 A.D.3d 1727 (App. Div. 4th Dep’t.). Defeated borrower’s claim to discharge mortgage and for award of attorney’s fees for alleged “indiscretions” of mortgage servicer.
  • Miller v. Imaging on Call, 2015 WL 150287 (D. Conn. 2015) – all counts dismissed against defendant for failure to show “Plausible” connection between injury and actions of defendant.
  • Banning v. Re/Max at the Lake kka Executive at the Lake, 2013 WL 4779533 (Conn. Super.). Claim for reformation of mortgage struck with prejudice. A mortgage broker is not the presumptive agent of lender.
  • DiMaria v. Accredited Home Lenders, Inc. 14-CV-6292 (FB)(MDG) (E.D.N.Y. Jul 27, 2016). The New York Eastern District federal court held that a promissory note cannot be split from the mortgage securing it and that the use of MERS in New York is ‘proper and acceptable.
  • Moorer vs. U.S. Bank, N.A., No. 3:17-CV-56 (VAB), 2018 WL 587319 (D. Conn. Jan. 29, 2018). The District of Connecticut held that foreclosing a mortgage is not debt collection within the meaning of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.
  • U.S. Bank National Association v. Nail, Index No.: 70652/2017 (N.Y. Sup. Ct. Oct. 9, 2018).  Motion to dismiss foreclosure action as time-barred defeated because where a mortgage contains a right to reinstate until judgment enters, the mortgage is accelerated upon entry of judgment and not commencement of the action.

Adam received a Bachelor of Arts degree from St. John’s University, where he graduated magna cum laude and achieved his Juris Doctorate from Quinnipiac University School of Law in 2008, where he graduated cum laude.

Adam is admitted to practice law in the states of New York and Connecticut. Adam has been recognized as a New York Super Lawyers “Rising Stars” from 2015-2018. No aspect of this advertisement has been approved by the Supreme Court of New Jersey. See Awards Methodology.
