Alonso Cisneros Joins Seyfarth’s Real Estate Team in Washington, D.C.


WASHINGTON, D.C. -- (June 12, 2019) -- Seyfarth Shaw LLP announced today the arrival of partner Alonso J. Cisneros to the Real Estate department and Structured & Real Estate Finance practice group in Washington, D.C. Cisneros was previously with Troutman Sanders LLP, where he was a member of its Multifamily Housing Finance group in Washington, D.C., focused on loan originations and servicing transactions.

Cisneros’ practice concentrates on advising mortgage banking clients in the origination, sale and servicing of loans sold to government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) in the secondary mortgage market. He regularly counsels lenders in Fannie Mae’s Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS) product line and Freddie Mac’s Optigo Seller/Servicer program, and has a deep background with many other agency loan products.

“Alonso is a terrific lawyer with an outstanding track record managing a variety of transactions, including GSE-related lending work,” said Paul Mattingly, chair of Seyfarth’s Real Estate department. "His knowledge of GSEs is a tremendous asset and blends well with our strategic plan to expand the firm’s national lending capabilities.”

Prior to entering law school, Cisneros served in the United States Marine Corps as a Legal Officer and an Air Defense Control Officer at the Marine Air Control Squadron One in Yuma, Arizona. He was then stationed in the Fourth Civil Affairs Group in Washington, D.C. as an Assistant Training and Operations Officer and a Civil Affairs Officer.

“As we continue to build our real estate team in D.C., we are excited to welcome a lawyer like Alonso. He brings a diverse and successful lending practice which provides remarkable value to both our local and national clients,” said Robert Bodansky, managing partner of Seyfarth’s Washington, D.C. office. “Alonso’s addition is another example of our office’s commitment to attracting top legal minds in the region.”

Cisneros earned a J.D. from the George Washington University Law School and his B.S., in Mathematics, from the University of Florida. Following law school, he worked as a Law Clerk for the Honorable Gerald Bruce Lee, U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.
