Wogan Bernard, a partner at Chaffe McCall, L.L.P., has been elected as a Fellow of the American College of Mortgage Attorneys (ACMA), a national organization of attorneys experienced in the preparation of real estate mortgages, restructuring, lending transactions secured by real estate, and related practice.
Mr. Bernard is recognized for his experience in representing lenders and developers with the acquisition, divestiture, development, leasing and financing, loan workouts, and distressed-asset assistance of office buildings, apartments, condominiums, restaurant, low-income housing, and hotel developments.  He has also been recognized for his assistance to clients in the areas of planning, zoning, subdivision, and permitting requirements on the state and local levels.

Mr. Bernard has also distinguished himself as an active member of the American Bar Association Real Property Trust & Estate Law Section and currently serves as the Chair of the Mortgage Lending Committee and Co-Vice Chair of the Young Lawyers Network of the ABA Section of Real Property Trust and Estate Law.

The ACMA was founded in 1974 to reform laws and procedures affecting real estate secured transactions and to raise the level of professional responsibility of lawyers practicing in this area with the goal of giving back to the mortgage law industry.

To maintain a high-level of excellence, fellowship in ACMA is by nomination of an existing ACMA Fellow only.  ACMA is a highly selective and prestigious national honorary organization which consists of approximately 400 lawyers from the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico who are distinguished practitioners in the field of real estate law. Congratulations to Mr. Bernard who has now become one of the youngest inductees in ACMA history. For more information on ACMA, please visit www.acmaatty.org.
