PRACTICE AREAS

Foreclosure Process:

  • Thirty (30) day demand letter with an acceleration notice mailed to property owner.
  • Complaint and Lis Pendens filed and served by summons on property owners
  • Legal response to be filed within twenty (20) days.
  • Motion for Default or Motion for Summary Judgment Foreclosure filed.
  • Final Judgment entered and a foreclosure sale date is set
  • Property is sold on the online foreclosure auction and Certificate of Sale is filed.
  • Certificate of title is issued within ten (10) days

Foreclosure Defense: The firm specifically tailors a plan for your defense. The firm will evaluate each client's individual circumstances to determine an effective plan of action. If the property owner does not exercise his or her rights to defend the foreclosure action a default judgment may be entered in favor of the bank. A summary judgment and a foreclosure sale date may be entered resulting in you losing your home. By providing a defense against the foreclosure would provide the property owner additional time to arrange a workout, refinancing or a short sale. The longer you wait, the harder and more expensive your fight will be. That being said, even if your sale date is just days away, in some cases it is still possible to stop the sale and keep you in your home.


Bankruptcy Process:

  • Representing debtors
  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy
  • Debt liquidation
  • Chapter 13 bankruptcy
  • Debt reorganization
  • Review of debt (including how debt is held)
  • Analysis of assets (including how assets are held)

Bankruptcy: Bankruptcy provides protection against creditor harassment and gives people the opportunity to "wipe the slate clean and start over". Bankruptcy can stop repossessions, foreclosures, wage and bank garnishments, judgments, lawsuits and IRS levies. The firm will determine whether the individual should pursue bankruptcy chapter 7 or chapter 13.

Chapter 7: If you meet the household income requirements, Chapter 7 for individuals or married couples may allow you to eliminate most of your debts including credit card debt, debts that have been transferred to collection agencies, and debt from unpaid medical bills. One of the primary purposes of Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is to discharge debts to give the client a new start in life. The automatic stay requires all of your creditors to immediately stop all collection actions against you. Chapter 7 may assist you in resolving the following issues: lawsuits, bank and wage garnishments and depositions in aid of execution. Additionally, Chapter 7 can offer relief from real estate mortgages and high car payments for properties and vehicles you no longer wish to retain.

Chapter 13: This process gives you the opportunity to stop the foreclosure proceeding and allows you to become current on your homestead mortgage. This proceeding is a personal reorganization that may also include rescheduling your secured debts for a period of three to five years. Your monthly payment plan to the chapter 13 trustee is to pay your outstanding debt to your creditors.
