Troy is a business owner’s lawyer, priding himself on a results-oriented, pragmatic approach to addressing legal issues in the financial services world. In his words, “I find out what the business wants, what it needs. If I start there, I can often find a way to get them to the result wanted, or very close to it, in a legal and compliant way.”
Troy deals with federal and state compliance, enforcement defense, company formation, and mergers and acquisitions (M&A). In these areas, Troy represents independent mortgage bankers (IMBs), community banks and other depositories, homebuilders, and related entities (e.g., lenders, servicers, title companies, secondary market investors, and equity funds).
Troy is active in the industry, including being significantly involved with industry associations and currently is a board member, and Chair of the Regulatory Compliance Committee of the Texas Mortgage Bankers Association. In 2007, the Mortgage Bankers Association named him to the Future Leader’s program.
Troy is a frequent speaker on a wide range of mortgage banking related issues, and in recent years has spent much of his time focused on the CFPB.
Troy is also an active YouTuber, and host of Troy at Garris Horn, the Mortgage Banking LiveStream.
