Ice Legal In The News
..."Royal Palm Beach attorney Thomas Ice, who represents homeowners in foreclosure, said the case was one of a string of cases the appellate courts have been reversing on standing issues. 'This woman will now have the opportunity to get a trial,' Ice of Ice Legal said. 'It's impressive that a pro se appellant can get a favorable opinion. I think it's good that the appellate courts are continuing to emphasize that you have to prove standing at the time you file. You can't just walk in with a note that's endorsed in blank. You would think after being told this several times that the banks would stop going forward on summary judgment with this argument ... and recognize they are leading the trial courts to errors.'"

...“Ice Legal founder Thomas Ice of Royal Palm Beach observed: ‘There's dual pressure on banks not to file cases. … This was an environment created by the courts themselves to try all these cases come hell or high water.’”
“‘Banks have lost control of the pacing of their own judgments," Ice said. ‘Before they could sit on the cases for years until they were ready for sale. But now cases are going to trial even though neither party wants them to go.’”

Prominent Royal Palm Beach attorney Tom Ice has withdrawn his sponsorship of a popular foreclosure forum because Palm Beach County judges objected to attorneys acting as moderators and questions had to be generated in advance to be shared with panelists before the event.
..."Thomas Ice ... helped expose the robo-signing scandal. He testified for the Bar at a hearing in the Stern case.'This closes a chapter in the foreclosure crisis and on some of the most abusive practices of these foreclosure mills,' Ice said."
...Royal Palm Beach based attorney Tom Ice agreed.
"Any increase in the clearance rate is due to the dubiously concerted efforts of the courts—funded with money from the ( National Mortgage Settlement)—to force cases to trial against the wishes of the banks and the homeowners," he said.
"I am one of many who believe that the greatest threat to homeowners' due process rights is the judiciary, not the legislature," Ice said.
