About This FirmBarrett Daffin Frappier Turner & Engel, LLP (“BDFTE”), Barrett Daffin Frappier Treder & Weiss, LLP (“BDFTW”), Barrett Daffin Frappier Levine & Block, LLP (“BDFLB”) and Barrett Frappier & Weisserman, LLP (“BFW”) (collectively referred to as “The BDF Law Group”), provide a full range of legal services to creditors on defaulted residential mortgage loans. The firm's founders started operations in 1990. BDFTE is the majority owner of BDFTW, BDFLB and BFW. The BDF Law Group serves all of the major national mortgage servicers, primarily on prime loan portfolios. The BDF Law Group is headquartered in Addison, Texas located in North Dallas.
With offices in Addison, Houston and Austin, BDFTE is the leading provider of default services within Texas. BDFTE provides foreclosure and bankruptcy representation, conveyance and closing, REO services, loan modification, document preparation, litigation and eviction services.
The BDF Law Group expanded operations in July of 2008 in order to further serve its clients' needs in the western states. It formed the Southern California law firm of BDFTW, and now provides foreclosure, eviction, bankruptcy and litigation services on California, Nevada and Arizona properties from its Diamond Bar and Diamond Bar, California locations.
The law firm began operations in Georgia in April of 2008. The Firm's partnership was expanded in 2011, changing its name to BDFLB (formerly Barrett Daffin & Frappier, LLP). BDFLB provides bankruptcy, eviction, foreclosure and litigation representation for the state of Georgia. In 2012, BDFLB added REO Closing to its services.
In 2006, substantially all of the non-legal assets and liabilities (those not related to the business of providing attorney services) of the BDF Law Group were transferred to a then wholly owned subsidiary known as National Default Exchange, LP (“National Default”). The BDF Law Group remained owners and managers. This subsidiary provided services to the BDF Law Group through a long term services agreement. Through a series of transactions, National Default, along with several other affiliated entities including NDEX Title Services, LLC (“NDEX Title”) and NDEX West, LLC (“NDEX West”) were combined into a holding company known as National Default Exchange Holdings, LP (“NDEX Holdings”) (collectively known as “NDEX”).
The partners and management team of the BDF Law Group were responsible for managing the NDEX staff and companies that provide services to the BDF Law Group.
On July 8, 2013, the BDF Law Group formed the subsidiary, BDF Holdings, LP (“BDFH”), owned and managed by its General Partner BDF Holdings GP, LLC which is 100% owned by BDFTE. BDFH continues to provide services to the BDF Law Group previously performed by NDEX under the new name. BDFH operations are part of the BDF Law Group.
The newly formed subsidiary, BDF Group Operating, LLC (“BDFGO”), provides the BDF Law Group with the administrative, financial and IT services to support the practice of law, previously performed under the National Default name.
NDEX Title changed its name to BDF Title Services, LLC (“BDF Title”) and continues to provide mortgage related title services including but not limited to title searches, abstracting examinations, filing curative, document preparation, as well as REO services.
NDEX West renders foreclosure trustee services in California, Nevada and Arizona for BDFTW and its clients.
BDFTE remains the majority owner of TitleStar Mortgagee Services, LLC (“TMS”). TMS provides tax certificates on defaulted mortgage loans in Texas.
BDF Auction Services, LLC was formed in September 2013, to provide foreclosure trustee and auction services in Texas and Georgia.
