  • Errors by the financial institution — Mistakes often occur in recordkeeping, and the chances for problems multiply as mortgages get transferred through numerous financial institutions. After a thorough investigation, we can identify any errors that have led to unjust foreclosure actions.
  • Military service — The Servicemembers Civil Relief Act helps to preserve the homes owned by members of the U.S. Armed Forces. Our firm can advise you of the specific provisions if you’re in the military and being threatened.
  • Predatory mortgage terms — Banks frequently take advantage of people who aren’t financially savvy or who feel forced into accepting unfair mortgage terms. Courts can stop possession actions that are based on unconscionable contracts.
