The Steverdings were about to lose their house, until they hired Doucet Gerling.

Now their home is safe from foreclosure, and they can retire with a loan payment they can afford.

Ed and Joanne Steverding are good, honest people.  Ed just happened to have lost his job, causing him and Joanne to fall behind on their mortgage.  They weren’t looking for a handout.  They just needed a little help to get back on track. 

Unfortunately, their mortgage company offered nothing and a "loan modification company" took their money and ran.  Ed and Joanne, just like most homeowners, found themselves in the difficult position of facing foreclosure.  They just needed someone to care and a little help.  

Ed and Joanne were referred to us by another lawyer who knew our reputation for defending foreclosure.  We got involved and defended Ed and Joanne's foreclosure case in court.  We worked hard and showed the mortgage company that we were willing to go as far as needed to save Ed and Joanne's home from foreclosure. 

On the "footsteps" of the courthouse, right before our hearing, the mortgage company relented and offered them a deal.  Ed and Joanne got a great loan modification that drastically lowered their payments and saved their home from foreclosure.  Now they have peace of mind, knowing that they can enjoy their retirement in the family home.

If you are reading this now, you are probably a lot like Ed and Joanne.  You want to get back on track and avoid losing your home.  But you need help that your mortgage company just isn’t giving you.  If you are like our clients, you want someone at the mortgage company to care about your case.  You probably also now realize that you need to do something different if you are going to get them to care about your case.  You can’t wait around to see if your mortgage company eventually helps, because then it could be too late.   You know that now is the time to hire a lawyer to help.

"My family and I would like to send a thank you with sincere gratitude for all the time, hard work, and long hours set a side daily to represent and speak on our behalf during a very challenging time in our life. Our success is a reflect of your commitment. Thank you Troy Doucet & law firm."

Find Peace of Mind

One of the most rewarding things for us to hear after an initial consultation is, "I feel like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders."  That is usually followed by, "I already feel better!"

We hear this a lot because our foreclosure clients have been trying to manage a crisis on their own.  They don't understand the foreclosure process or the legal system, so they feel overwhelmed.  They are stressed out and everyone around them is suffering.  They might have been looking for help online, but only came across inaccurate information or scammers trying to take their money. 

It's a huge relief for our clients to finally reach a law firm with years of experience defending foreclosure and who really care about them.  All of a sudden, they see light at the end of the tunnel.  They have hope that we can stop their foreclosure, even where others have failed.

We love helping families save their home from foreclosure.  But we especially enjoy knowing that our involvement gives you the freedom to get back to the other important things in your life.  We want to give you peace of mind, while we work to solve your legal matter.  Call us today at (888)200-9824 and let us lift that weight from your shoulders.

Don't Wait to Get Help!

We know dealing with foreclosure is not something that you want to think about.  But it can be stopped!  You just need to address it as soon as possible.  The faster you are able to get a good lawyer involved, the faster you can start to put foreclosure behind you.  

Foreclosure is a legal process with specific deadlines.  The most critical deadline comes up right after you are served with the foreclosure.  You have a short window to answer the foreclosure before the mortgage company can take a default judgment against you.  Don't delay in finding a lawyer to help you file your answer! 

It can be harder and more costly to find legal counsel to reopen a foreclosure versus addressing it now.  Contact us right away at (888)200-9824 so we can help you prepare your foreclosure answer to avoid a default judgment.
