Newington Foreclosure Relief Lawyer

Newington homeowners continue to struggle despite five years of promises of mortgage modification by banks and government programs. Mortgage modification and foreclosure mediation are still unnecessarily slow and complex with lost paperwork and delay, leading to high rates of homes lost to foreclosure.


Banks who say they are "working with homeowners" are often foreclosing at the same time as they claim to be "trying to help." Foreclosure is a legal process intended by the bank to take back your home. It is not an effort to help you save your home, it’s a lawsuit brought by the bank’s foreclosure attorney. Get prompt legal service from Newington lawyers experienced in Foreclosure Defense, Mortgage Modification and Foreclosure Mediation.

We offer:

Mortgage Modification This process allows homeowners to make application to their bank for mortgage relief through private arrangements or various government programs. Mortgage modification has been seriously criticized since the early applications of 2008. Despite promises to act in good faith and speed up the process, banks and government programs have been compromised by the big banks’ lack of effort and delay. Don’t wait for solutions; instead, use an experienced Newington mortgage modification attorney to act promptly and efficiently to save your home. Delay is deadly for homeowners.

Mortgage Mediation is a mandatory program available to Newington residents in foreclosure. Proper and prompt preparation by an experienced attorney is critical to saving homes through mortgage mediation. Prompt and well documented applications for mediation requires solid analysis, advanced preparation and thorough advocacy.

Chapter 13 stops foreclosure proceedings immediately upon filing through the imposition of an automatic stay which stops all foreclosures and court actions anywhere throughout the United States. It provides for the prioritization of debt so that important necessary payments like mortgage payments or tax payments can be made affordably over a 3-5 year plan drafted in our office by our experienced Chapter 13 attorneys. This provides for the effective and comprehensive debt relief that assures long term foreclosure relief and home retention.

If you are late, behind on mortgage payments or already in foreclosure, we can still save your home. Call our office to get the accurate advice of an attorney experienced in saving homes.
