Our Mortgage Banking Group is part of Ballard Spahr's nationally recognized Consumer Financial Services Group.

Clients include financial institutions; mortgage lenders, brokers, and servicers; secondary-market investors; insurance companies; investment bankers; settlement service providers; auction platforms; and homebuilders. We also advise industry service providers such as technology vendors, collection agencies, document preparation companies, telemarketers, loan fulfillment companies, and trade associations.
