Other Areas of Practice

In addition to personal injury, our offices also handle various other areas of law.

These include:

Bankruptcy

Our offices are experienced in Bankruptcy law, which can be used to help in many situations.  Bankruptcy can help with repossession, foreclosure, garnishment and lawsuits just to name a few.

There are two chapters of bankruptcy available to consumers:

Chapter 7 – Commonly called a liquidation bankruptcy.  This chapter grants qualifying debtors total relief from their debts. 

Chapter 13 – Bankruptcy under this chapter are sometimes referred to as reorganization bankruptcy.  They allow a debtor to retain possession of most of their property while they repay a percentage of their debts over a period of 3-5 years. 

It is important that you meet with an experienced attorney that understands the nuances of these laws to help you determine which route is best for you.

Real Estate and Foreclosure Defense

Foreclosure Defense

• Loan Modification

• Workout Agreements

• Forbearance Agreements

• Short Sale

• Deed-In-Lieu of Foreclosure

Many homeowners are having trouble paying their mortgage and may be facing foreclosure.  Our offices will work directly with your lender to workout a solution that fits your budget and needs. 

Also, it has been estimated that as many as 10% of all homes are "underwater" (worth less than what's owed).  In this situation, many people are choosing "strategic default" and our offices are prepared to help you get away from this burdensome debt.

• Residential Real Estate Closings

We offer very competitive flat fee rates on real estate closings. 

We personally travel to the closing location on the date set.

Our offices will:

1.  Review and, when possible, negotiate the real estate purchase contract.

2.  Schedule the time and location of the closing and calculate the amount of money you will need to close.

3.  Explain the significance of the documents given to you at closing.

4.  Verify all closing expenses and documentation for accuracy.

5.  Examine the condition of title prior to closing and oversee the removal of all title objections to be removed at closing in order that you obtain marketable title to the property.

6.  Obtain the owner’s title insurance policy and recorded original deed, both of which will be forwarded to you for your records after closing.
