Jason J. Oliveri represents the diverse interests of national and state chartered banks, GSEs, mortgage loan servicers, and collateralized trusts. Recognizing that prevailing at mediation or trial does not always equal a win for the bottom line, Jason focuses on helping his clients avoid disputes through compliance and pre-litigation counseling. He also helps clients navigate complex state and federal consumer protection statues and investigative inquiries from government entities, such as the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
With in-depth knowledge cultivated over many years of focused practice, Jason has successfully defended virtually every type of claim brought against lenders, including those arising under the:
- Truth in Lending Act (TILA);
- Home Owners Equity Protection Act (HOEPA);
- Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA);
- Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA); and the
- Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA).
Additionally, he has handled claims involving wrongful foreclosure, predatory lending, unfair and deceptive acts and practices, forced-placed and other insurance issues, as well as title and discrimination claims. Jason's understanding of the Uniform Commercial Code has been an asset to clients litigating their right to enforce secured and unsecured debt instruments.
Jason has also defended business clients in state and federal court against claims of breach of contract, confidentiality, and fiduciary duty, as well as the breach of non-competition and non-solicitation covenants and indemnity obligations. Further, he has advised on matters involving tortious interference, the misappropriation of trade secrets, and violations of state and federal employment laws.
Finally, a portion of Jason's practice is dedicated to professional liability claims. He counsels other attorneys and law firms facing legal malpractice actions and ethics matters, including accusations of violating the rules of professional conduct.
Prior to joining Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP, Jason worked as a Special Deputy Attorney General with the Consumer Fraud Prosecution Section of the New Jersey Attorney General's Office.
