As a foreclosure lawyer who practices foreclosure defense in Tampa and St. Petersburg, I’m not in the business of foreclosure delay. I”m in the business of winning foreclosure cases for my clients!

Foreclosure defense is not about delay of the foreclosure process, foreclosure defense is about fighting the banks, at every step of the way and forcing the outcome that my clients deserve….


There really should be no need to bankruptcy or frankly even mortgage modification.  The key is to fight foreclosure!

Now, I want a word here about the technical rules and requirements and about the need to really fight hard and understand exactly what the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure and the rules for defending a foreclosure case are.
The fact is this is a massively complex area that requires not just a reading and understanding of the technical rules for foreclosure defense, but a complex understanding about exactly how they operate.

In short, you need an experienced foreclosure defense attorney to serve your interests properly….but for now, enjoy a few of the basics that are critically important

    Wells Fargo stole my home on 8-6. I am a single 57 yr old mother of three kids that I adopted. One of whom has severe Autism. I have lived in my home for 19 years. WF led me to believe that they were doing a loan modification. I am looking for an attorney who will take my case on a contingency plan. Thank You!
