Jeremy J. Overbey
Up until his sophomore year in High School, Jeremy Overbey moved about once a year—a byproduct of his father being a construction manager. Switching locations and schools every year helped Jeremy learn to adapt to new situations and exposed him to a variety of social situations and parts of the country.
Jeremy’s primary practice concentration is mortgage servicer/lender defense, but he has a broad base of knowledge and a variety of experience in different areas of litigation, ranging from lease enforcement to insurance defense. He is a member of SettlePou’s Insurance Defense, Commercial Litigation, Eminent Domain & Condemnation, and Real Estate practices.
Jeremy’s Commercial Litigation practice consists of mortgage servicer/lender litigation, general commercial matters, contract disputes, billboard litigation, general real estate litigation and landlord/tenant disputes. He enjoys the variety of litigating a broad range of topics, from defending mortgage lenders/servicers and landlords to representing individuals involved in automobile accidents.
Jeremy knew he wanted to be an attorney since roughly the seventh grade, as he has always liked reading, writing, and solving problems. He is very responsive, persistent, and thorough, and has an impressive depth of knowledge of litigation, focusing on mortgage lender/servicer disputes.
Jeremy spends most of his time outside of work with his wife, son, and other family. He also enjoys reading, watching sports, playing fantasy football, and exercising when he gets a chance.
