Avoid Bankruptcy & Stop Foreclosure

Our Ohio mortgage loan and foreclosure defense attorneys are known for their work helping families facing foreclosure.  We represent clients prior to the foreclosure complaint being filed in court, after foreclosure has started, and directly with the lender to get a deal done, all without the need to file bankruptcy.  We fight in court for our clients. We get deals that others can’t because we are tough, smart, and thorough. The banks know it won’t be easy taking our clients homes. We keep the pressure up to maximize results. Learn how we help our clients avoid bankruptcy.

We regularly get our clients loan modifications when they have been previously denied.  Many of our clients have tried for weeks or months to get a loan modification on their own, but gotten nowhere.  Your mortgage company should be able to evaluate you for multiple options:

  ▪  Loan Modification with Lower Payments

  ▪  Loan Modification with No Cash Out of Pocket

  ▪  $4,000 to $10,000 to You if You Want to Move

  ▪  Reinstatement with Waived Fees or Costs

  ▪  Release from all Future Liability on the Loan

  ▪  Short Sale or Short Payoff

  ▪  Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure
