LAWYERS AND FORECLOSURE DEFENSEBefore you represent yourself or hire an attorney, carefully look into who are the best foreclosure defense lawyers. Attorneys are expensive. To become a lawyer in the state of New York, you need a four year undergraduate degree. Thereafter apply to law school, be accepted and attend three more years of education in the law in an approved law school. Then, after graduating from law school, the individual must take the bar exam, pass it, go through an ethics process and then be admitted to the bar. The process between applying to college, graduating, going through law school and get admitted to the bar takes approximately eight years. When that individual gets out of law school, it then takes many years until they develop the expertise necessary to litigate effectively in the courts of New York.


Even if a homeowner does not have a provable defense to the foreclosure lawsuit, a skilled foreclosure defense lawyer can tie up the case up in court from anywhere from three to five years. During this time the homeowners are living in their home without making any mortgage payments.


What to look for in a foreclosure lawyer is how much experience the attorney has representing homeowners. The second thing to look for is how many foreclosure cases the law firm has handled? Have they obtained loan modifications for homeowners?

Have they published articles on issues facing homeowners whose homes have been foreclosed? Do they have a staff to back them up? Finally, what will hiring that foreclosure defense attorney cost you and what legal services are being provided?
