"This was our first experience with foreclosure and we felt helpless. From the very beginning Mr. Doucet listened to our concerns, explained the options we could use in our defense and helped put our mind at ease. During every step of our case Troy and his team kept us informed about our options and what we could expect. They always made us feel that our case was as important to them as it was to us. My wife and I are very grateful for the hard work that Troy and his staff put into our case and would gladly recommend them to anyone that is facing foreclosure."
