Washington, D.C. (former Buckley) Office
Steve vonBerg combines his legal skills with insights gleaned from seven years in the mortgage industry as a loan officer and underwriter. He delivers practical, business-oriented advice on regulatory compliance matters to bank and nonbank mortgage lenders and mortgage servicers.
Steve’s practice is focused on the full spectrum of federal mortgage lending laws, particularly those that have come out of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), including the Ability-to-Repay and Qualified Mortgage (ATR/QM) rule, the Loan Originator Compensation rule, the Truth in Lending Act-Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (TILA-RESPA) Integrated Disclosure rule (TRID), RESPA Section 8, the 2013 Mortgage Servicing Rules and the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) amendments.
He also provides regulatory compliance counsel related to money transmission and electronic signatures and understands the intersection of technology and the mortgage industry.
Steve is active in the mortgage industry, writing articles and participating in webcasts. He was a contributing author to the CFPB Mortgage Origination Handbook (2nd Edition) and in 2018 completed the Mortgage Bankers Association Future Leaders Program.
