Why Go Out of State When The Mortgage Modification Expertise You Need Is Here In Connecticut?
It disappoints me to still hear from prospective foreclosure and mortgage modification clients who have paid out of state mortgage modification companies or so called "national law firms" that have failed to obtain mortgage modifications for them. These companies are usually not properly licensed with the Connecticut Department of Banking and these law firms are not authorized to practice law in this state and woefully uninformed as to foreclosure law in Connecticut. Most are also unaware of the existence and benefit of the court's foreclosure mediation program. I have to admit I was initially skeptical about the foreclosure mediation program; however I now see it as a very effective tool to negotiate with lenders and their foreclosure counsel for acceptable resolutions of my clients' foreclosure cases including mortgage modifications, short sales and deeds in lieu of foreclosure. These companies and law firms blanket the internet with their advertisements and promises of great results for homeowners desperately seeking to save their homes. They take advantage of these homeowners' desperation with promises of unrealistic modifications to obtain payment of their fees before even seeing all of their clients' financials. In these situations the phrase " If it sounds too good to be true than it is not true" comes to mind when it comes to these advertisements and promises. These modification companies and national law firms are ripping people off and using their ill gotten profits to lure in more victims with their misleading and false advertising tactics. If you need help in
Connecticut with a foreclosure or a mortgage modification
contact an experienced
attorney to help you. A Connecticut attorney can represent you throughout the whole process including filing an appearance for you in a foreclosure action or file bankruptcy as needed which these out of state companies and law firms cannot do. Don't waste your money with any of these out of state
charlatans and compound your problems by having to contact our Attorney General
and Department of Banking in an attempt to get back the fees you wasted by
