Pacific ADR Welcomes Real Estate Attorney Catherine Yalung
I am pleased to introduce Pacific ADR Consulting’s newest panel member, Catherine Yalung. Catherine brings extensive substantive knowledge regarding title insurance and real estate transactions to her mediation and arbitration practice.
Catherine has practiced law for 23 years, with a primary focus on real estate and creditor-debtor matters. She currently manages litigation in a 10-state region for a national title insurance underwriter. Her experience settling hundreds of complex cases gives her keen insight into the mediation process. She has successfully negotiated settlements in cases involving:
- Incorrect legal description led to construction of home on the wrong lot
- Seller failed to disclose prior mortgage when he sold property; lender initiated foreclosure
- Home equity line of credit was paid down but not closed when property was sold; borrower continued to draw on line
- Survey error resulted in incorrect legal descriptions on lenders’ security documents
- Mechanics’ lien asserted priority over purchase money mortgage
- Homeowner’s son forged deeds of trust on mother’s property to secure private money loans
- Prejudgment writ of attachment ordered on sale proceeds when seller knew of domesticated judgment, but did not disclose
- E&O coverage dispute involving agent employee’s fraud
- Portion of property quit claimed to city and later included in sale to property developer
The above examples are illustrative of the depth and breadth of Catherine’s experience.
You will find Catherine to be very adept at formulating strategies to solve problems and achieve mutually acceptable settlements. She is a dynamic, engaging attorney who can manage diverse personalities and introduce creative solutions into complex cases. I would be happy to make a personal introduction for you.
