What Should I Look for in a Foreclosure Defense Attorney?

When someone has been notified of an impending foreclosure on their home, they often panic. This is not necessary. What they must do is speak with a trustworthy New York foreclosure defense attorney as soon as they can. However, choosing the right attorney to assist you through this challenging time is key. Below are some of the most important questions you should ask yourself before hiring a foreclosure defense attorney.

How long has your attorney been practicing law?

Of course, experience isn’t everything when it comes to practicing law, however, if you need an attorney to save your house from foreclosure, you should hire an attorney who has helped countless individuals do so for years. Attorney Katz has been practicing law for about 15 years now, and he has a strong knowledge of the ins and outs of foreclosure defense law.

Does your attorney have a strong knowledge of the law?

Knowledge of the law is the most important thing you should keep your eye on when it comes to hiring your attorney. When you first meet with your attorney, it is critical that he is capable of answering all of your basic questions on the spot. If you speak with an attorney who seems confused or cannot answer your simple questions regarding an impending foreclosure on your home, there is a very good chance that the attorney in question is not the right one for you.

How do you feel after leaving your initial consultation?

As you know, the foundation of any attorney-client relationship is trust. This means that both parties must trust each other with valuable information, and any client must trust that his or her attorney is capable of handling their case properly. Rather obviously, if you are faced with potentially losing your home, it is critical that you feel you are in good hands. Our firm will answer your questions, treat you with respect, and notify you every time a development in your case occurs.
