November 01, 2015
Due to the overwhelming contact to defend recent foreclosure notices that we are currently receiving, we have made the decision to temporarily not accept any more new foreclosure defense cases at this time, [unless a truly unique set of circumstances is present in your particular matter]. We will revisit this decision in January 2016.We hope that you can appreciate the reason for us making this decision, as we want to be able to have the time to fully defend our current clients matters. However, we are still accepting non foreclosure defense bankruptcy matters.
Aggressive Foreclosure Defense
After the recent passage of Massachusetts' An Act Preventing Unlawful and Unnecessary Foreclosures, it has become increasingly more difficult for entities to foreclose on homeowners. This legislation helps protect consumers and homeowners in Massachusetts. Essentially, the act forces financial entities and or mortgage securitization trusts, and their "minions" to take lawful and reasonable steps before initiating a foreclosure action under Massachusetts statute.
Most importantly, the act allows homeowners and the Massachusetts economy to repair and recover after the real estate market crash and the resulting foreclosure crisis. This act was partially shaped as a result of this firm's successful representation of the LaRace family before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in the
national precedent setting ruling of
U.S. Bank Nat'l Ass'n v. Ibanez ,458 Mass. 637 (2011).
Unfortunately, not many homeowners in Massachusetts fight foreclosure by enlisting the services of a Massachusetts foreclosure defense attorney. The reasons for this are many, but predominately due to the fact that foreclosure in Massachusetts is "non-judicial", that is the foreclosing entity does not have to go to court in order to separate you from your family abode. Therefore, where a homeowner "mortgagor" believes that there are legitimate reasons that the entity claiming the right to foreclose, does not have the legal authority under statute to do so, they must file a lawsuit to challenge the foreclosing entity. There are not many attorneys who take these cases on, and even fewer that actually understand the issues involved with this area of the law.
Beware, there are attorneys that may take these cases on, with no experience, or understanding of foreclosure. While an experienced, knowledgeable, and skilled, lawyer from our firm can represent you and aggressively help you navigate the foreclosure process smoothly, and cut through the red tape associated with foreclosure cases, no one can guarantee a successful outcome in these matters, as this is an extremely complicated, and largely undeveloped, area of the law. If we decide that your particular situation is compatible with our focus on changing the law, and you fully understand that a successful outcome is uncertain at best, but still wish to file litigation, we can help.
