 About Martin C. Cude Jr. ...

Having earned a BBA from Southern Methodist University in 1964 and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Texas Tech University in 1970, Martin Cude has been practicing law for 30 years. Mr. Cude's primary expertise has been in the area of real estate law, beginning with private practice immediately after law school. In 1972 the partnership of Nelson & Cude was formed, which specialized in real estate and FHA insured projects. In 1974 Mr. Cude joined Federal National Mortgage Association as Legal Counsel where he was instrumental in formulating and implementing its condominium and planned unit development lending programs and was involved with the drafting of the Uniform Condominium Act and the VA condominium program. In 1978 Mr. Cude once again entered into private practice specializing in setting up condominium and planned unit development regimes primarily for FNMA, FHLMC, VA, and FHA approval and in 1980 formed the partnership of Cude & Shanbaum continuing in the same areas of practice. In 1983 this office expanded to include a fee attorney's office for Dallas Title Company. From 1984 until mid -1986 the partnership of Cude & Sallinger was created as a fee attorney's office closing loans for Dallas Title Company, Stewart Title Company, and Ticor Title Company.

Mr. Cude has lectured at events sponsored by the Louisiana Mortgage Bankers Convention, American Institute of Real Estate Appraisers, Practising Law Institute, Federal National Mortgage Association, National Association of Home Builders, and Condominium Association Institute. His article entitled, "Blanket Insurance for PUD's, a Workable Option" was published in 1975 in the FNMA SELLER SERVICER while employed as Legal Counsel.

Since 1974 Mr. Cude has drafted the legal documentation for or reviewed in depth the legal documentation for more than 725 condominiums and planned unit developments; i.e. residential, commercial, medical/dental, assisted living, warehouse, and mixed use, all over the country.
