Saving your home from wrongful foreclosure
You worked hard to purchase your home. When unexpected circumstances occur that put your home at risk of foreclosure, you can take crucial steps to ensure your lender complies with its legal duties. We combine innovative strategies with fierce determination to defend your right to keep your home. When selling your home presents the better option, we guide you toward the most advantageous situation. Means of protecting your home include:

  • Mortgage modification
  • Loan forbearance
  • Short sale
  • Deed in lieu of foreclosure
  • Lawsuit

Defending your right against government’s abuse of power
Eminent domain is the power of the government to take private property for public use. The process involves condemnation of your property, appraisal of its value, an offer to purchase and negotiation for a fair price. If the government offers an unsatisfactory amount of compensation or your property was improperly designated for public use, you can sue to halt the eminent domain process or receive the compensation you deserve. We zealously protect clients’ property from eminent domain abuses.

Alternative dispute resolutions (ADR)
ADR refers to alternative means of settling disputes outside of the courtroom. Some contracts require binding arbitration or nonbinding mediation to resolve disputes that arise out of the transaction governed by the agreement. When the cost and time of litigation exceed the likely outcome, you may choose to settle instead. If negotiating a settlement, our tenacity directs the proceedings toward a desirable outcome.
