Why hire an attorney for Foreclosure Defense?

Although a homeowner can directly contact his or her lender to file for a loan restructure, the result is often unsatisfactory. Many homeowners receive the 'runaround' from their lender, are unfortunately strung along for months on end, and ultimately are either not approved or receive sub par terms on their loan restructure. But, if a homeowner opts to hire the service of a professional with expertise in lender loan workout forms, the homeowner has the advantage of utilizing the professionals experience when filing for a loan restructure.

Since our law firm has seen a lot of bad advice going to good people, we feel that there are some things that you should know before you hire a company to handle your case:

1. Your bank does not hold your interest at heart. The majority of the offers that banks make have their interest at heart, not yours! They are in the business of collecting interest on loans, which is why you need legal representation to ensure that YOUR rights are protected and the outcome of your case is to your liking and benefit.

2. Lenders constantly encourage homeowners to avoid seeking their own legal representation because lenders will profit more if homeowners attempt to do it themselves. Also, “any misstep” could be subject to a legal claim. Lenders do not want you to have a professional attorney negotiating your foreclosure defense case because experienced attorneys can negotiate better terms for you than you can negotiate for yourself. How does Friedman Law Associates, P.C. accomplish this? Because with our extensive experience in foreclosure defense, we have the ability to compare your offer with past offers that we have received for other clients so that we can fight to get you the BEST DEAL. It’s our job to know every development in this industry!

3. The worst advice we see is coming from modification companies. PLEASE BEWARE! These are companies that have sprouted up in the last year because they see an opportunity to make money off of your hardships. They tell honest people to not pay their mortgage, guarantee interest rates and successes, offer no attorney’s license number, are not regulated by anyone, charge substantial fees, and offer no protection to their clients. If a company does not offer a license number and is called anything other than ‘The Law Office of …’, I’d sincerely hesitate to speak to them any further regardless of what they promise. Furthermore, please see our blog on the FTC's new regulation on loan modification companies to become more informed when choosing a service to trust your case with.
