Stop Foreclosure

Troy and Andy "wrote the book" on foreclosure defense.  27 Legal Defenses to Foreclosure: How to Beat the Bank is a second edition to Troy's popular 23 Legal Defenses to Foreclosure.

27 Legal Defenses Book Most of our clients have hit a bump in the road that cause them to miss a few mortgage payments.  They want to get back on track, but the mortgage company isn't willing to help.  If you run into this with one of your clients and a short sale isn't possible, have them give us a call before throwing in the towel.  They might be surprised at what kind of deal we can get done, even if previously denied.  This includes getting a short sale even if previously refused by the mortgage company.

Our attorneys defend foreclosure in court and regularly get our clients deals using the law (we do not file bankruptcy), even if they have been previously denied:

  ▪  Obtain a short sale or short payoff to help protect their credit.

  ▪  Remain in their home and start repaying the mortgage.

  ▪  Avoid the emotional and financial repercussions of foreclosure or bankruptcy.

  ▪  Get a loan modification with favorable terms.

  ▪  Avoid a default judgment in court.

  ▪ Protect their biggest asset from loss.

  ▪ Or, work out a cash-for-keys deal that allows them to walk without facing a deficiency.

"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."
