Richard P. Haber

Brice, Vander Linden & Wernick, P.C.

Iselin, NJ, USA

Rich Haber is a Shareholder in the Dallas-based firm Brice, Vander Linden & Wernick, P.C. ("BVW"), and Managing Attorney of the firm's northeast operations (NY, NJ, PA). Rich has worked in default servicing and litigation for the past sixteen years, practicing law for the past eleven. During that time, his practice has focused exclusively on the representation of mortgage servicers in the areas of foreclosure, bankruptcy, eviction, REO and litigation.

Rich worked at Zucker, Goldberg & Ackerman, LLC from 1996-2009, having various job functions with the firm prior to attending and graduating law school.  From 2006 until his departure in 2009, Rich was Managing Attorney of the firm's Litigation and Title Resolution Department, which handled all aspects of contested foreclosures, bankruptcy adversary proceedings, appeals, motion practice, trials, title insurance claims, surplus monies, deficiency actions, replevins, and other default-servicing matters which deviate from routine foreclosure and bankruptcy files. 

In 2009 Rich joined McElroy, Deutsch, Mulvaney & Carpenter, LLP ("MDMC"), a regional full-service firm, and developed a multi-state mortgage servicer litigation practice. In September 2010, while at MDMC, Rich was retained as New Jersey counsel for JPMorgan Chase to address the foreclosure affidavit crisis and spearhead Chase's remediation efforts in the State.  He was thereafter offered an in-house position at Chase to assist in developing its Attorney Oversight Program, and made the move in-house in March 2011. For the year leading up to his return to private practice with BVW in September 2012, Rich managed Chase's relationship with all foreclosure/bankruptcy counsel nationally, including retention and termination of firms, referral volume decisions and law firm training and development.  

Rich is a two-time graduate of Seton Hall University, earning a Bachelor of Arts in 1998 and Juris Doctorate in 2001. He is a former Adjunct Professor of Law at his alma mater, where he taught Legal Research and Writing to first year law students. Rich frequently speaks on panels and lectures on default servicing matters, and participates in various bar-related committees and working groups. In 2012, the New Jersey Law Journal named him a New Leader of the Bar (formerly known as 40 under 40).
