Law Firms Merge to Better Serve Consumers

ALAW, a creditors’ rights law firm which provides default, litigation, collection, title, and closing services to the mortgage banking industry, has announced its merger with Cleveland, Ohio based creditors’ rights law firm Felty and Lembright Co., L.P.A. Current Felty and Lembright Partners Kriss Felty, Mark Lembright, and Antonio Scarlato, will remain as partners of the combined entity, which will serve clients as Albertelli Law Partners of Ohio, LLC.

This acquisition further expands ALAW’s growing default services footprint, which will now include Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

“We are thrilled to welcome Felty and Lembright to the ALAW family,” said Jim Albertelli, Founding Partner at ALAW. “They have built a tremendous practice and have a tremendous industry reputation based on the highest standards of excellence and integrity.”

The firm of Felty and Lembright has represented some of the nation’s top financial institutions with a combined experience of over eighty years in the practice of real estate and bankruptcy law, and management of foreclosure proceedings.

“Our merger with ALAW delivers many benefits, including those that come from shared services and technology,” said Kriss Felty, Co-Founding Partner at Felty and Lembright. “We are confident that the merger will benefit our clients and further confirms our commitment to providing unparalleled legal representation to financial institutions throughout Ohio for many years to come.”
