The Project

I provide direct legal services to low-income borrowers/homeowners, including those with sub-prime or unconventional mortgages, facing default or foreclosure to enforce their civil legal rights and remedies. I represent borrowers in defending against foreclosure proceedings; in negotiations with lenders; in bankruptcy proceedings to restructure debt (and deal with legal issues, such as predatory lending abuses, late fees and excessive attorney fees), the goal of which will be to protect home ownership; and in other areas of civil law that may allow a borrower to preserve home ownership.
