This means, for example, in foreclosure, we can help even on the eve of the actual sale.


Other key points in the process include: after the mortgage modification process is not going well or has failed, when you are technically too late to serve the required Answer to the foreclosure, when the lender sends you a "Summary Judgment Motion" where they are asking to foreclose since you never served an Answer, and/or were late serving your Answer. Key problem we handle, and are also working on trying to change the law: you only have TWENTY days to do this from the date you receive the Summons and Complaint no matter what) or even if you served an Answer that was timely or accepted as timely, whether getting help from legal services, participating in the Foreclosure Settlement Conferences, etc.
