Foreclosure and Real Estate Lawyers


FORECLOSURE DEFENSE

Losing a home through foreclosure can be frightening and stressful. Regardless of how the foreclosure threat started, there are almost always legal defenses that can help save the home. Homeowners in this situation have to decide whether or not they want to remain in the home, pursue a sale or seek modification of the terms of the loan. Or, challenge the foreclosure if the mortgage company cannot show the right to foreclose. In many cases homeowners who deal with the foreclosure head-on end up with a better resolution than those who simply walk away. This is because there are often post-foreclosure consequences that can harm the former homeowner years after they gave up the home.

Our team of attorneys helps homeowners find solutions to foreclosure. If you are in foreclosure, or expect to be, take some time to learn about the process and the defenses that may be applicable in your situation. Click on the video here or on the buttons below to learn more about options to save your home. If you need immediate representation, please contact our office for a free consultation today.

STOP DEBT COLLECTOR HARASSMENT

It’s not just annoying, harassing consumers to collect a debt is against the law and we can stop it.

Abusive debt collection can cause stress, anxiety and other problems and debt collectors know this. They use these pressure tactics to intimidate, threaten and pressure consumers into paying. But federal and state law, designed to stop this kind of behavior, is available to protect consumers from this kind of harm. Our firm fights abusive debt collection whether or not the source of the problem is a legitimate debt. You see, under the law, the debt collector’s conduct has nothing to do with the debt. This means debt collectors must conduct themselves properly regardless of the type of debt, amount, age of the account or other aspects of the debt. Some consumers, however, are hounded by debt collectors who have ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT to collect the debt. This not only violates federal and state law, it is a form of fraud. Consumers who are harmed by this kind of conduct can sue the debt collector for damages. Sometimes this can work to eliminate the debt as well.


PROBATE & ESTATE PLANNING

Are your financial, business and personal affairs in order?
This is an important question that deserves an honest answer. Especially since the estate you have established over the years can be at risk of never reaching your loved ones if consumed by matters of probate court. All that can be avoided by getting the proper legal advice and setting your matters in order right now with a probate attorney.
Our law firm provides guidance in preparing Will and Trust Documents, Powers of Attorney and advance directives for health care and other important matters. These documents must be prepared properly to withstand attacks from outsiders or others that may interfere with carrying out your instructions in situations involving representatives or trustees, incapacity or death. Even simple matters, like appointment of an agent by using a Power of Attorney document can make routine day to day matters so much easier and convenient. Contact us today to discuss your needs.
