Defending Against Foreclosures

Foreclosures are on the rise in New Jersey, New York and elsewhere. In certain cases, the foreclosure process can be slowed or even stopped using appropriate legal defenses. Often, all the debtor needs is sufficient breathing room to obtain alternate financing or to sell the real estate themselves. Filing a good faith defense often can accomplish that. Moreover, by contesting a foreclosure, the firm can often begin a dialog with the lender to explore whether the debt can be restructured. In this regard, the firm's services include:

  • defending contested foreclosure matters;
  • handling the legal aspects of restructuring mortgage debt;
  • negotiating with the lender through mediation or otherwise; and
  • handling the legal aspects of the refinance.
